How To Serve Oven-Roasted Sausage and Potatoes

Oven-Roasted Sausage and Potatoes is an easy and versatile recipe that can be eaten on its own for a weeknight dinner or eaten as a side dish. The slices of sausage make it super filling and onions and red and green bell pepper make it a one pan dish. I love to take the leftovers and use them as an omelet filling. Unbelievably delicious!!

Oven Roasted Sausage and Potatoes makes a great one pan meal!

Sausage and Potatoes makes a great meal all by itself but I also love to serve it with corn. Here is my favorite way to cook corn on the cob.

How To Make

I take red potatoes and slice them fairly thin, about 1/4 to 1/3-inch, and toss them with melted butter, olive oil, garlic powder, paprika, plus salt and pepper. Typically, I roast them on one baking pan and the sausage, onion, and peppers on another baking pan and them toss them together once cooked. They only take a few minutes to prep and about 30 minutes total in the oven so this is a super easy and convenient weeknight meal.

As much as I love the potato slices, it is the Johnsonville sausage that really make this recipe. My family really digs sausage and I love that Johnsonville has so many types and flavors of sausage. It keeps us from getting tired of eating sausage.

Johnsonville Fully Cooked Sausage comes in a variety of flavors including Andouille (perfect for jambalaya and gumbo) and Apple Chicken which I love to add to light pasta dishes. All the fully cooked sausage flavors are so convenient and flavorful. They have no fillers and are made from 100% premium cuts of pork and have a savory hard-wood smoked flavor.

I really love the Beddar with Cheddar which is what I used for Oven-Roasted Sausage and Potatoes. Every bite has little chunks of cheddar cheese that add the perfect flavor compliment to the pork. The cheese makes the sausage ideal for adding to dishes where you want a little cheese flavor, but it saves you a step and cuts out an ingredient. So simple. So easy.

Johnsonville Fully Cooked Sausage is a little bigger than a hot dog and perfect for grilling or broiling or cutting into slices and adding to recipes.

    We love this. We don’t double it, but almost. My husband helps cut everything up while I mix the spices, and he gets carried away. I just had to mix a second bowl of spices, butter and oil! We love having leftovers! Thanks for this recipe.

  2. Do you keep the potatoes 🥔 in the oven when you put the sausage baking sheet in the oven, or take it out and wait until the sausage is ready. Also, do u spray your pans cooking oil? I’m tripling the recipe as I’m
    Making it for my staff Christmas breakfast.

      Bake them in the oven at the same time, the sausage just needs a shorter bake time. There should be enough butter/oil mixture to keep anything from sticking to the pans, but it doesn’t hurt to give your pans a quick spray with oil.

  3. Made this with Italian sausage as that was what I had, it was so delicious. 450 oven worked fine for me, loved the oven fried potatoes. Will make it again.

  4. Oven was too hot. I should have turned it down to 375. Maybe my oven runs hot. 30 minutes should do it.

    Are you sure it’s supposed to be 450 degrees. I just made this and followed every step. And i have mini hockey pucks for sausages and potatoes…

  6. This meal would be a huge hit in my house — I love those crispy potatoes with that sausage! I could totally see this for breakfast too with a nice poached egg. 🙂

    I need more easy dinners like this for busy weeknights! I love the combination of sausage and potatoes, Christin! Looks so flavorful!

      Could you do this in a cast iron skillet? Also, whether it be a baking sheet or skillet, could you
      just add the sausage mixture after 30 minutes to the same pan or skillet and not use 2 pans.
