Sausage Potato Sheet Pan Meal
It’s always good to have a few no-drama recipes lying around that you can easily change depending on who’s over at your house. This Sausage and Potato Bake is definitely one of those meals!
First, it’s simple to make. You’re basically just mixing all the ingredients together and throwing them in the oven until the potatoes are cooked. Can’t get much easier than that…and not a lot of clean-up, either! Drama-free!!
But also, you can tweak my Potatoes and Sausage recipe for just about any occasion. Got a lot of people over? Double it, or triple it! Want even more flavor? Add your favorite herbs and seasonings. Family needs more veggies in their diet? Throw in carrots, green beans, and more! Need some heat? Time to bring out more peppers, chili powder, and paprika! Do the kids demand cheese on everything? Turns out, this recipe is fantastic with parmesan on top!
Really, you’ll want to save this bake as a “keystone” recipe in your house. You won’t regret it!

Sausage Potato Recipe: FAQs
In an air-tight container, they’ll remain good in the fridge for about 4 days.
Yes! Or halve it. Or really anything you need. It’s great for feeding any number of people you need it for, really.
Definitely add any veggies you enjoy – carrots, green beans, different kinds of peppers (for heat), and cauliflower are really good, for instance!! Various seasonings like Italian mix or adobo seasoning are also heavenly. And finally, experiment with herbs like rosemary and thyme. This is a very customizable recipe!
I really think standard rope sausage hits the spot in this recipe!! However, using Italian sausage, chicken sausage, or turkey sausage is also delicious. You can even give the recipe a Mexican twist if you grab some chorizo.
About 4-6 servings/plates, enough for most families (or just a house of your favorite people)!
A little under an hour. You’ll need 15 minutes to prep the recipe and about 35 minutes to cook it.
When putting all your ingredients into the pan, try not to put anything on top of the potatoes (like the sausages). This will prevent them from cooking correctly.
