SAUSAGE Smoked sausage or sweet sausage work well in this recipe! (If you’d like to use uncooked Italian sausage it will need extra time to cook and can be added to the pan with the potatoes.

POTATOES Skins on or off, any type of potato will work well in this one-pan meal. Even sweet potatoes can be used.

VEGGIES Zucchini, peppers, and onions—always the perfect combination! Add in your favorites from mushrooms to green beans.

FLAVOR The flavor of the veggies and sausage really shine in this recipe. It’s all tossed with a simple homemade Italian style dressing. If you’re in a rush swap it for bottled Italian dressing or even balsamic dressing.

Tips for Perfect Sausage & Potatoes

  • For best results with sausage and various vegetables, make sure all the pieces are cut uniformly so they roast at the same rate.
  • Save time by using a thin-skinned potato (red or white); they don’t need to be peeled first.
  • Give the potatoes a jumpstart in cooking (as they take a bit longer than the rest of the ingredients). While they’re cooking, chop the rest of the ingredients to make the prep quick.
  • Broil for a few minutes if desired!


  • Roasted sausage and potatoes make perfect leftovers! They get better the day after as the flavors blend! Keep leftovers in an airtight container for about 3 days in the refrigerator.
  • Tuck leftovers into a wrap for a grab-and-go breakfast or a lunchtime pick-me-up!

  1. The sausage and potato roast was a big hit . I love your web site and preordered your cookbook. Cannot wait until September 8th. The sauce tou prepared for this dish was s good. I did not have zucchini so I used red and green peppers and half an onion and it was so delicious. Thank you for such a wonderful recipe. We LOVED it.

    1. Thank you for trying our recipe, Matianne! I am glad you enjoyed it. We can’t wait for you to try the delicious recipes in the cookbook!

  2. This is delicious and bursting with flavor. One of our new favorites. I make it at least 3 times a month.5 stars

  3. We make this dinner at least once a week. SUCH a staple. Easy and absolutely delicious. Thank you!!5 stars

  4. So easy and instructions were perfect. I usually get a little bothered with people who change a bunch of things in the recipe and then comment on it, but I did not have red pepper flakes, so I added a dash a cayenne pepper for a little heat, and it still worked–everyone loved it. Did an entire baking sheet of diced potatoes, and then a separate sheet of onions, red peppers, and 1 lb of sausage, so I doubled the dressing. Thanks again, Holly!5 stars
