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!

Recipe Rating


  1. Delicious. Easy. I put carrots in with the potatoes because I had no other veggies on hand. I’ve made several other versions of this dish, and this is my favorite recipe.5 stars

  2. I used 3 russet potatoes cut into 1 inch pieces and I didn’t peel them, 1 red pepper, 1 yellow pepper, 1/2 a red onion, 1 package of eckrich skinless smoked sausage. The only thing I changed about the dressing was that I used apple cider vinegar instead of the red wine vinegar because that’s what I had on hand. I cook this meal often with different variations. This was by far my favorite time I’ve made it! Wow!! That dressing really made all the difference and the way it was cooked perfectly with your directions! I will use this regularly! Thank you ♥️

  3. Hi! Just curious as to why it says 27 votes for 5 stars but only shows 3 with 5 star reviews? Maybe some gave it a rating without comments?
    Thanks…cant wait to try this either way!

  4. This was excellent! The only thing I did different was drizzle a little extra olive oil over the top to keep it from drying out and added extra cracked black pepper cause we like lots of pepper!
    Served with a side of buttered rice.
    So good, quick and tasty!!5 stars

  5. Wonderful meal !!!! But I did change it around a bit. Instead of smoked sausage I used medium hot Italian sausage, cannot stand bell peppers so I left that out, and I added about a dozen mushrooms quartered, and a dozen or so Cherub tomatoes. I will have to try it with the smoked sausage, but I think the Italian sausage did give it some zing.

  6. Roasted potatoes and sausage recipe was incredibly simple and delicious! I doubled the dressing and used fresh mushrooms instead of zucchini. Will make often!5 stars

  7. Had this for supper last night and my husband and I both loved it!!! And so many different ways to change it up! We will definitely have it again soon!!!

    1. I haven’t tried this with andouille sausage but it should work well with any kind of smoked sausage that you enjoy. Typically andouille is more coarse in texture and we use it to flavor our fave gumbo.

  8. I made this with Adele Italian chicken meatballs because that is what Is what I had in the freezer and kept everything else the same and it was excellent! Since the meatballs were precooked I added item at the end just to warm them through,

  9. Made it last night and we loved it! I didn’t have zucchini or peppers so subbed carrots and just put it all in the oven. Looking forward to making it again with different varieties of sausage.

    1. I haven’t tried it but I can’t see any reason it wouldn’t work. I can’t say for sure on the cook time, you might like to check the manual.

    1. You could try a little balsamic or white wine vinegar in place. Balsamic would change the flavor but still be delicious.

    1. Any kind will work. Peeled russets/baking potatoes or thinner skinned white or red potatoes (which don’t need peeling) are great. In the photo I used Yukon gold. Enjoy!
