Do you remember the last sheet pan recipe you prepared?

They are crazy easy to do with little prep work and come out delicious.

Sheet pan sausage and potatoes are even better than my sheet pan sausage, peppers and onions because with those a hoagie bun brings them together.

With this sheet pan sausage recipe the entire dinner is made all together. You have the protein, carbs, fat and a ton of flavor from the seasonings on everything.

I’ll show you the step to have a sausage sheet pan dinner in under an hour.

How To Make Sheet Pan Sausage And Potatoes

You’ll need a few ingredients to start

  • Smoked sausage (your favorite sausage such as beef kielbasa or polish)
  • Yukon potatoes
  • Red onion
  • Oil (olive oil, vegetable oil, etc.)
  • Italian seasoning
  • Garlic powder
  • Smoked paprika
  • Salt & black pepper

Quick tips before starting

  • When slicing the veggies, you will want to slice the onions thick. This will allow them to hold up better while the potatoes cook. Depending on the size of your sheet pan you may be able to fit 2 onions instead of 1 that is listed.
  • Slice the potatoes then but not potato chip then. You can overlap them a bit as well. Red potatoes or russet potatoes will work as well if that’ what you have available. But, Yukon gold work the best for the recipe with flavor and texture.

Making the sheet pan sausage and potatoes recipe

  1. First, prep all the ingredients. You do not have to slice the sausage. You can lay the full link on the sheet pan if you’d like. But you do need to slice the onion thick and the potatoes thin.
  2. In a small bowl combine the seasoning together.
  3. Now, in a large bowl add the onions and potatoes. Pour oil on top and then cover with the seasoning. Toss everything together then place on the sheet pan.
  4. Bake for 40 minutes or until you can easily pierce the potatoes. This is why I recommend you slice them thin for a faster cook time.
  5. Lastly, allow to cool a bit then serve. The inside of the potatoes will be hot.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What temperature do you bake sheet pan dinners?

Sheet pan dinners are designed to be quick and easy. The best way to achieve this and get good flavor from the veggies roasting to cause the maillard effect* at least 400F is needed.

What’s the best sausage to use?

In this sheet pan sausage and potatoes recipe I used smoked polish sausage. But, any sausage will work. If you are not a fan of smoked sausage then Italian sausage, chicken sausage or brats work just as well.

Is this a full meal or does something go with it?

This is a full meal with 3 servings. However, if you want an easy side dish or you have more people to serve here are a few options:
