Oven baked sausage risotto

Oven baked sausage risotto is a hearty, tasty meal that the kids will love. We think the best ‘cheap meals’ are the ones you don’t know are budget. When we think about cooking budget meals we prefer to think of saving money using meal planning, buying seasonal, getting creative with leftovers, buying in bulk and keeping a well stocked pantry. Plus, a risotto that is baked means no standing over a hot stove. Win.

Nutrition Note: Choose good quality sausages free of additives and preservatives. These unwanted ingredients can destroy some nutrients in the food they are added to and cause food intolerance symptoms in susceptible children and adults.

    This looks like a winner for my fusspot! At what stage do you add the sausages back in after cutting up? Before putting in the oven?

    absolutely delicious! I couldn’t cool it down quick enough for my 18 month old. He devoured it. I left the onion out as my little one can’t have it and it was still very tasty. Great recipe. Thanks One Handed Cooks. This will definitely be a staple in our house!
