1. Preheat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6.

2. Combine the sliced onion, French beans, cannellini beans, thyme, mustard, garlic, most of the bunch of thyme and cider in a small roasting tin.

3. Lay the sausages on top of the vegetables, drizzle each with a little oil and cook for 20 minutes or until the sausages are just beginning to brown. Carefully remove the tray from the oven and turn each of the sausages over to brown the other side. Season the upturned side with salt and pepper.

4. Return to the oven and cook for a further 20-25 minutes, or until the sausages are cooked through. Serve immediately sprinkled with the remaining thyme.
