Bring on an easy dinner for weeknight cooking! We love whipping up a big baking sheet of this Sausage Peppers Potatoes and Onions—covered with foil, and baked to perfection. This sausage recipe goes well with rice, cauliflower rice, and potatoes. Or, just serve by itself.

We love the versatility of this easy dinner, because you can add a mix of peppers, different kinds of potatoes (try sweet potatoes), or make it lower carb and add cabbage and a ton of veggies. Simply chop up the ingredients, place them on a sheet pan, and drizzle with oil. Don’t forget your favorite seasoning and a sheet of foil to cover the pan.

Sausage peppers potatoes and onions

This recipe is easy to double in case you need to feed a crowd. Also, it’s one of our favorite go-to recipes, with very little clean-up, delish any time of year. We love to enjoy the smoky, salty, sweet flavors. You can always add a dollop of sour cream (and hot sauce for the big kids).

how to make Roasted Bratwurst Potatoes and Peppers

How to make the best sausage and onions

Simply chop up all your ingredients, combine them on a large baking sheet, and bake! See and print the full recipe below!

seasoning the Roasted Bratwurst Potatoes and Peppers
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Prepare each sausage link by cutting into 3 pieces and place in a large baking dish or baking sheet.
  3. Cut the potatoes, onions, and peppers (cut the potatoes a little smaller than the peppers and onions), and add to the sausage..
  4. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with oregano, or favorite seasoning, and salt and pepper.
  5. Toss to coat (you can use a large spatula, spoon, or I just use my hands).
  6. Sprinkle it with red pepper flakes.
  7. Cover the baking dish or baking sheet  tightly with aluminum foil and bake.
  8. Remove foil and cook uncovered for additional time.

Tips & substitutions

  • Cut the food to similar sizes (to cook evenly). If you do use potatoes, make sure they are on the smaller size. If the potatoes are larger, you might want to microwave them first (to get a head start on baking).
  • Try different variations of potatoes, like red potatoes, new potatoes or russet potatoes – or sweet potatoes.
  • Optional to use mixed bell peppers.
  • Add in a large cabbage (cut into eighths) – it’s surprisingly delicious.
  • Use a large sheet pan, so you can evenly spread out the veggies and sausage. It will cook more evenly this way, than a packed baking sheet.
  • Feel free to switch out the sausage, like beef, turkey and chicken sausage, for your favorite protein.
  • Keep it low-carb and swap out the potatoes for cauliflower, broccoli, mushrooms, or turnips.
  • Add more veggies (summertime) like zucchini or yellow squash.
  • Change up the seasoning, or add a spice if you want a kick. Add a drizzle of coconut aminos or soy sauce.

Serving suggestions

I love a one-pan meal like this one, and all you need to add to it to make it a full meal is a tasty salad and bread! I love a house salad with these bread bites. It doesn’t need to be complicated. If I have time I love to make our cheesy potato bread, too.
