This is a classic Kiwi dinner, jazzed up just a little bit. Bacon wrapped sausages add extra yum-factor, and the potato and egg salad includes kumara, extra veggies and a lightened up yoghurt-based dressing.
Cooking the sausages on a rack set over a roasting dish is a good way to get rid of the excess fat – it can be surprising how much comes out.

This is a classic Kiwi dinner, jazzed up just a little bit. Bacon adds extra yum-factor to the sausages, and the potato and egg salad includes kumara, extra veggies and a lightened up yoghurt-based dressing.
Preheat oven to 190ºC (375ºF) fan bake. Wrap sausages in bacon and place on a rack set over a roasting dish. Bake for 25 minutes, until sausages are golden brown and cooked through.
PREPARE POTATO SALAD
Meanwhile, peel potatoes and kumara and chop into 2-3cm pieces. Place in a large saucepan and cover with water. Boil for 8 minutes, then add eggs and boil for a further 8 minutes.
While potatoes are cooking, finely dice capsicum and thinly slice onion. Whisk together yoghurt, aioli or mayo, parsley (if using), mustard, salt and pepper.
Drain potatoes, kumara and eggs well. Remove eggs, run under cold water to cool a little, then peel and cut in half. In a large bowl, gently combine potatoes, kumara, capsicum, onion and whisked yoghurt mixture. Carefully stir through egg halves. Season with extra salt and pepper, to taste (if needed).
Thinly slice cucumber and tomato. Serve sausages with a generous helping of potato salad and slices of cucumber and tomato.
WINE MATCH: A Sauvignon Blanc or a Rosé.
GLUTEN-FREE OPTION: Ensure sausages, bacon and aioli/mayo are gluten-free.
INGREDIENT SWAP: You could replace the sausages with chicken (breast, thighs or tenderloins). Use more or less potato vs. kumara depending on your preference.
STORING AND REHEATING: Leftover potato salad is best eaten cold. Sausages can be reheated in the microwave or eaten cold.
