Roasted Potatoes & Sausage is the simplest, most delicious sheet pan recipe ever. Combine your favorite veggies and seasonings with tasty sausage for an effortless weeknight meal
I can’t get enough of easy sausage recipes. They’re bursting with flavor and endlessly versatile. I always return to Creamy Sausage & Artichoke Pasta or pair simple Air Fryer Sausage with whatever veggies I have lying around.
My current sausage obsession is Oven Roasted Potatoes & Sausage. This recipe checks all the boxes. It’s a one-pan meal that only requires a few minutes of prep work. For how effortlessly it comes together, it sure packs flavor. There are only a few ingredients, and the ones listed can easily be swapped out with your favorites.
Once you taste this recipe and realize how unbelievably easy it is, there’s no doubt it’ll join the weeknight recipe rotation.
Why This Recipe Works
- This recipe is so easy to customize. You can swap out the varieties of potato, onion, peppers, and sausage to create a meal full of your favorite flavors.
- Bulk up the recipe by adding extra veggies you have on hand.
- Prep takes only 10 minutes. This recipe is mostly hands-off, so you can toss dinner in the oven and return to it later.
- Sheet pan meals make cleanup effortless so you can spend more time with your family and less time at the sink
What You’ll Need
- Red Potatoes – These are perfect for this recipe because you don’t have to peel them, and they land in the sweet spot between tender and firm. They won’t turn to mush on the pan but will still have pillowy soft centers.
- Onion – Any onion will work. Red, yellow, white, and sweet are all delicious in this recipe.
- Bell Pepper – I like to use red bell peppers since they’re sweeter than green and yellow ones, but use whatever you have.
- Olive Oil
- Salt & Pepper
- Garlic Powder
- Rosemary – Rosemary compliments all kinds of sausage and takes this recipe from good to irresistible.
- Sausage – Use your favorite sausage, just remember to remove the casings. I’ve used Italian Chicken Sausage here, but this recipe is scrumptious with any kind.
How To Make Oven Roasted Potatoes & Sausage
- Chop all of your produce into bite-size pieces.
- Add all the veggies to a bowl and toss to coat with olive oil and all the seasonings.
- Spread the coated mixture in an even layer on a large baking sheet. Bake at 425°F for 20 minutes.
- Remove the pan from the oven and stir the contents so that everything roasts on every side. Next, break the sausage into chunks and scatter them around the sheet pan.
- Return the pan to the oven and bake for another 25 minutes until everything is cooked through and fork tender.
- Once you remove the pan from the oven after everything’s cooked through, serve immediately. Since everything is in small pieces, it’s quick to cool down.
- The smaller you chop the ingredients, the quicker they’ll cook. So if you want to trim down the cooking time, make the pieces smaller than bite-size.
- Try different seasoning combinations to keep this recipe fresh from week to week. For example, try homemade Pork Seasoning or Taco Seasoning.
For a winter meal, try potatoes, butternut squash, and brussels sprouts. In the summertime, add tomatoes, asparagus, and artichokes. The possibilities are endless with this versatile recipe. It’s a perfect way use up whatever you have in your fridge at the end of the week.
This recipe isn’t just for dinner. Turn it into a breakfast or brunch using breakfast sausage. Then, fry some eggs and top the whole thing with Hollandaise. But even when it is dinnertime, adding a couple of fried eggs to each serving is a great way to bulk up the meal. Place a plate of warm tortillas and a bowl of shredded cheese on the table, and everyone can make their own sausage and potato tacos.
How To Serve
It’s simple to bulk up this recipe to create a filling and nutritious dinner. Oven Roasted Potatoes & Sausage are satiating on their own, so it doesn’t take much to level up this recipe.
- Try drizzling dressing over the top of each serving. Cafe Rio Dressing is bursting with fresh tomatillo flavor and highlights the flavors of the sausage and potatoes. If you don’t have any tomatillos on hand, you could make Cilantro Lime Dressing instead.
- Salads complement the hearty meal without overdoing it. Try serving a BLT Salad or a Simple Tossed Salad with this recipe.
- You can’t go wrong with Smoked Corn on the Cob, either. It’s easy, flavorful, and sure to be devoured by everyone at the table.
The best way to store leftover Oven Roasted Potatoes & Sausage is to transfer them to an airtight container. It’ll keep in the fridge for 2-3 days. After that, you can air-fry, rebake, or microwave the leftovers to reheat them.
