One Pan Sausage and Potato Dinner FTW

Sausage is way underrated as a dinner option, in my opinion. It’s quick cooking, super flavorful, and can be used in everything from Italian Sausage Stew with White Beans to One Pot Orecchiette with Sausage and Broccoli.

Today, I’m going to be sharing one of our favorite ways to eat Italian sausage–cozied up next to some tender roasted potatoes and green beans!

This Sheet Pan Sausage and Potatoes is an easy way to get a well-rounded meal on the table. As a person who never remembers to plan for side dishes, sheet pan meals are the way to go. Your main dish and veggie is all in the same place, with minimal prep and minimal clean up.

I shopped all the ingredients for this Italian sausage dinner at Kroger. They are a one stop shop for all of the fresh and delicious ingredients I need–not just for this recipe, but for my whole list!

They believe everyone deserves access to fresh, affordable, and delicious food. I love shopping their huge variety of produce and products for every recipe and lifestyle.

Now that you know where to get your ingredients, let’s make dinner!

How to Make Italian Sausage with Potatoes

This recipe is all made on a single sheet pan. The trick is to give the potatoes a head start so they have plenty of time to soften before adding the sausage and green beans to finish the bake!

Ingredients for Italian Sausage Bake

  • Uncooked Italian sausage links
  • Potatoes-I love petite medley or baby potatoes, but you can use any kind of potato here. Just be sure to chop into smallish 1 inch chunks.
  • Green beans, trimmed and snapped in half
  • Seasoning blend- rosemary, garlic powder, Kosher salt, black pepper, and olive oil

To bake the sausage:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a sheet pan with foil. Spray it with cooking spray.
  2. Mix up the olive oil, rosemary, garlic powder, and Kosher salt. Spread the potatoes out on a baking sheet and toss with half of the olive oil mixture. Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes.
  3. Toss the remaining olive oil mixture with the green beans. Take the pan out of the oven, stir the potatoes, and nestle the green beans and Italian sausage in with the potatoes. Add cracked pepper, to taste.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and stir. Bake a final 10 minutes or until potatoes and beans are tender.

What to Serve with Sausage and Potatoes

My kids like to dip these baked sausages in their favorite 6th food group: ketchup. My husband and I prefer a quick, tangy dijon mustard sauce. It cuts the richness of the Italian sausage perfectly and brings a nice zing to everything!

Sausages with potatoes and green beans is really a meal on its own, but you can also add some crusty bread, crock pot applesauce, or an easy garden salad to round it out!

Tips for the Best Baked Italian Sausage

  • Do not poke holes in the sausage before baking. Keep all those yummy juices inside!
  • Use any kind of uncooked sausage for this recipe. Sweet, mild, and hot Italian sausage all work well. You can also use turkey or chicken sausage.
  • Feel free to substitute different vegetables, just keep in mind you’ll want to use vegetables that bake for about the same time or can be baked in phases.
    • Examples: If you’re using zucchini or yellow squash, add it to the pan during the last 15 minutes. Heartier vegetables like carrots, butternut squash, or sweet potato should be cut into smaller (1 inch) chunks and baked the full amount of time.
  • Change up the seasonings to create your own flavor profile. Add thyme to this garlic/rosemary combo or try paprika, dried basil, and oregano.
