sausage is a type of meat product usually made from ground meat—often pork, beef, or poultry—along with salt, spices and other flavourings. Other ingredients, such as grains or breadcrumbs may be included as fillers or extenders.

When used as an adjective, the word sausage can refer to the loose sausage meat, which can be formed into patties or stuffed into a skin. When referred to as “a sausage”, the product is usually cylindrical and encased in a skin.

Typically, a sausage is formed in a casing traditionally made from intestine, but sometimes from synthetic materials. Sausages that are sold raw are cooked in many ways, including pan-frying, broiling and barbecuing. Some sausages are cooked during processing, and the casing may then be removed.

Sausage-making is a traditional food preservation technique. Sausages may be preserved by curing, drying (often in association with fermentation or culturing, which can contribute to preservation), smoking, or freezing. Some cured or smoked sausages can be stored without refrigeration. Most fresh sausages must be refrigerated or frozen until they are cooked.

Sausages are made in a wide range of national and regional varieties, which differ by the types of meats that are used, the flavouring or spicing ingredients (garlic, peppers, wine, etc.), and the manner of preparation. In the 21st century, vegetarian and vegan varieties of sausage which completely substitute plant-based ingredients for meat have become much more widely available and consumed.

What’s in Sheet Pan Sausage and Potatoes? 

This sausage and potato bake calls for five main ingredients:

  • Precooked sausage of your choice
  • Potatoes
  • Red Onion
    • Olive Oil
    • Italian seasoning

How to Make Roast Sausage and Potatoes 

Making sausage and potatoes in the oven couldn’t be easier! Line a baking sheet with foil, then add the sausage, potatoes, onions, evenly drizzle with olive oil, evenly seasoning with the Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, and toss with your hands to combine and coat evenly.

Roast until the potatoes are tender and have as much color as desired.

What Kind of Sausage Should I Use? 

You want to use precooked sausage. You can use chicken, pork, turkey, or beef sausage. Or kielbasa or polska kielbasa. Look for something U-shaped rather than links.

I used a store-brand ‘hickory smoked chicken sausage’ because that’s what my grocery store had during this surreal time of life when grocery shopping feels like an episode of Chopped and you literally have to make due with what’s in your basket. Or in this case, whatever your store has available.

What Kind Of Vegetables To Use?

For the veggies, I used two very large Russet potatoes and a jumbo red onion. That’s what was available.

You could also incorporate:

  • Bell peppers
  • Broccoli
  • Zucchini
  • Carrots
  • Cauliflower
  • Mushrooms
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Green beans
  • Asparagus
  • Or your favorite veggies


  • Note: Root vegetables like potatoes and carrots take longer to cook, so you should cut them small. If you’re adding thin veggies like green beans or asparagus, add them in the last 10-15 minutes of cooking so they don’t overcook.


How to make our sheet pan dinner favorite – Sausage and Potatoes!

  1. Grab a sheet pan. Then take some red potatoes and cut them into about 8 pieces. Place the cut potatoes on the sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil. Then take the ranch packet and sprinkle about half of the packet onto the potatoes. Then mix all together so potatoes are coated with olive oil and dry ranch dressing. Then make sure they are evenly spread on the pan.
  2. Then cut the carrots into the same size of pieces as the potatoes and arrange them on the pan in between the potato pieces. Then pepper the veggies.
  3. Then place them in the oven that is preheated to 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
  4. Then remove from oven and add the onions and bell peppers that have been cut into 1 inch squares. Arrange them on top of the cooked potatoes. And then add the chicken sausage that has been cut into 1/2 inch rounds.
  5. Sprinkle the remaining ranch dressing packet on top of the ingredients on the sheet pan and then mix all together.
  6. Pop back in the oven for 15 minutes. Then remove and serve!

One of my favorite things about this recipe is that it’s so flexible. I adjust the veggies depending on the season and what I have on hand.

It’s important that regardless of which veggies that you use, that you keep the pieces uniform so that everything roasts at the same rate. I’ve included some other ideas below to give you more option ideas.

  • Sweet potatoes
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Zucchini
  • Yellow squash
  • Mushrooms
  • Butternut squash
  • Onion

The spices can also be changed up. For example, you can throw in some red pepper flakes to spice up the meal.

Can I Use Frozen Vegetables Instead of Fresh? 

Ideally you want to start with fresh veggies for this sheet pan sausage dinner.

And ordinarily I’d say no to frozen, but I know many of us are relying on our freezer stashes right now so you can play that by ear and give it a try — especially if it’s something like chunky frozen broccoli, cauliflower, or potatoes — which I feel would work fairly well.

Can I Use Fresh Sausage Instead of Pre-Cooked?

You probably can, but you’d need to brown it first before adding it to the sheet pan. I haven’t tried it myself though, so I can’t say for certain.
