  1. Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C. Use a little oil to grease a roasting tin roughly 23cm x 25cm.
  2. Toss the cabbage with the thyme and 1 tbsp vegetable oil. Season with salt and black pepper. Scatter into the roasting tin and arrange the leftover roast potatoes and veg in the tin. Dot with heaped spoonfuls of mash. Bake for 20-25 mins, until the cabbage is crisp and the other vegetables are piping hot.
  3. Melt the butter with the sage in a small saucepan until foaming. Take the traybake out of the oven and spoon over the sage butter. Serve with cranberry sauce.
