Sausage and potatoes- This super easy and delicious dinner is cooked in a Sheet pan with 10 minutes of prep. Potatoes, sausage, green beans, and onion are tossed in a buttery dressing and baked to perfection.
Serve it with Herbed Garlic Butter Rice or with a light salad for a complete meal.
Sheet pan dinners are the best kind of dinners are, don't you agree? Everything is cooked in a baking tray, minimal cleanup, and quite versatile. Smoked sausage, potatoes, beans, and Onion are tossed in a flavorful buttery seasoning and baked until potatoes are crispy around the edges.
When you don't want to stand near the stove tossing and flipping the food, sheet pan dinners are the best.
The seasoning is the most basic one yet so good and flavorful. I have used butter, Olive oil, garlic, paprika, thyme, Oregano, salt and pepper.
Butter gives a richness to the dish but substitute with olive oil or any neutral flavored oil.
You can also use garlic powder instead but fresh garlic always better.
Tips to bake sausage and potatoes
This is a wholesome dinner with protein and a medley of vegetables, super simple to make. I wish I can turn all my recipes to a sheet pan version because who wants to do multiple dishes.
Now coming to this incredibly delicious Sausage and potatoes, It has sausage, potatoes, green beans, and onion.
- Which sausage to use? I have used smoked sausage, but any other sausage like breakfast sausage, turkey sausage, or Italian sausage would also work.
- Cut sausage into equal thickness. It should neither be too thick or too thin.
- No fixed rule here. Use whatever potato you have on hand or you prefer. Yukon gold, red potatoes, or even baby potatoes works in this recipe. Make sure you cut the potatoes small for even cooking.
- Because potatoes take more time to cook than sausage and other veggies, cook potatoes first. When it is half cooked add the rest of the veggies and sausage. Alternatively, you can parboil potatoes, drain and cool them down. Then toss parboiled potatoes, sausage, and the rest of the veggies in the seasoning.
5. Use a large baking sheet to avoid overcrowding the pan. Else veggies will steam together and won't crisp up. Use two baking sheets if possible.
6. Line the baking sheet with some aluminum foil for easy clean up.
