  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200˚C, fan 180˚C. Put the pepper, tomatoes, courgette and squash on a large baking tray and drizzle with half the oil. Add the smoked paprika and oregano, toss to combine, then roast for 25 mins. Meanwhile, put the bangers and red onion in a deep 20 x 30cm rectangular nonstick baking tin and toss with the remaining oil. Put in the oven for the last 15 mins of the vegetable cooking time. 
  2. Meanwhile, put the flour in a bowl and make a well in the centre. Whisk in the egg and milk until combined and about the thickness of double cream.
  3. Increase the oven temperature to gas 7, 220˚C, fan 200˚C. Add half the roasted veg to the banger tin (set aside the remaining vegetables to cool: see Make it go further) and pour in the batter. Quickly transfer the tin to the oven and cook for 15 mins or until golden. Serve with mashed potato and vegetarian gravy, if you like.

Make it go further: This recipe makes double the roasted veg, to save turning on the oven another day. They’ll keep in the fridge for up to 3 days, or can be frozen.
