Oven Roasted Smoked Sausage and Potatoes



Smoked Sausage was not something that was a familiar ingredient in my home when I was growing up. I had never even heard of it. I discovered it shortly after I moved out to Western Canada as a young Bride . . .



It was love at first bite. Kielbasa . . . Polish Sausage . . . whatever you call it. It's delicious and it's also a very versatile ingredient to have in your refrigerator or freezer. It comes in very useful and means that you will always have a delicious and quick, if simple, meal ready to hand when you want it.



This is something that I used make every so often for my family through the years. It used things that I always had on hand . . . potatoes, onions . . . smoked sausage, cheese . . . and it went together very quickly, which was a real bonus with 5 growing children and a big house to care for!



Simple, delicious and economical . . . all plus's in a young mum's books! Add to that the fact that my kids loved it, and you had a real winner on your hands.

It's not something I make really often these days . . . let's face it, my aging thighs don't need all those calories . . . and it's probably not the healthiest dish for people to indulge in very often, but as a once in a blue moon treat, and a store cupboard meal, it goes down as a real treat.

It's also very easy to double or halve, which makes it pretty convenient as well.



Oven Roasted Smoked Sausage and Potatoes
Serves 4
Printable Recipe

An easy and simple meal that is also economical . . . oh, and pretty delicious too!!

1 package of smoked sausage
(Peel if necessary, and slice into rounds)
1 large onion, peeled and chopped
5 large potatoes, peeled and chopped into 1/2 inch cubes
olive oil
fine sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
sweet paprika
dried thyme
a handful of grated strong cheddar cheese



Preheat the oven to 200*C/400*F/ gas mark 6. Line a large baking tray (with sides) with several sheets of foil, and drizzle with a bit of oil. Spread the oil out over the pan. Set aside.

Put the sausage rounds, onions and potatoes into a large bowl. Drizzle with a couple TBS of olive oil and season to taste with salt, pepper, paprika and dried thyme. Toss together with your hands until everything is evenly distributed. Pour this out onto the baking tray, and spread it out as much as you can.

Place into the heated oven and roast for 45 minutes to an hour, stirring every 15 minutes or so, until the potatoes are golden brown and tender. Turn off the oven. Scatter the cheese over top of the cooked meat and potatoes, Pop back into the oven a few minutes to melt the cheese. Serve immediately.

NOTE:  I would not use any more than 1/2 tsp of the dried thyme, unless you really, really like the flavour of thyme.

TIL NEXT TIME!!

    1. Marie!!! I couldn't find a way to comment so I'm hoping you see this lol. I don't have thyme. Would garlic pair well with paprika?

      Delete
    2. Paprika is a smoky-sweet sort of taste, while garlic is (unless it's been carefully sautéed) kind of earthy and bitter. If you lack thyme, I'd either leave it out or sub it in for oregano if you want the dark taste of thyme, or rosemary if you want the same texture and don't mind a pop of bright, faint mint. Hope that helps!

  2. This is a great recipe! I saw it pinned on Pintest on the day I needed it (I was looking for a recipe combining potatoes and smoked sausage). Took it to a baby shower and it was a BIG HIT.

  3. So happy you enjoyed it Jschwab! It's a winner for sure.

  4. I have never frozen it actually. It's been my experience that freezing potatoes doesn't work very well. They usually get very mushy. You could cut the recipe down quite easily to a small size if you were thinking you would have too much. I do that all the time as there are only two of us.

  11. About how many cups are 5 large baking potatoes? I am making this evening for my husband.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Hi Rita, I am guessing I did not see this in time. I would think a large baking potato would yield slightly more than a cup, so I would say about 6 cups? That is only a guess!

  32. Have you ever added green peppers to this? I have one I need to use before it goes bad. Can't imagine these ingredients not going together.. ha!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I think peppers would make a great addition Rachel!

    ReplyDelete
  34. For an even quicker meal, could you use the refrigerated prepackaged diced potatoes? They even have kinds that come complete with onions and peppers. Since the sausage is already cooked, it would probably only take twenty minutes or do to heat everything up.

    ReplyDelete
  35. For an even quicker version, I would think you could use the refrigerated diced potatoes in a package. There are even kinds with peppers and onions. As the sausage is already cooked, I figured about 20 minutes at 400° would be enough to heat everything up. Sound good yo you?

    ReplyDelete
  36. That does sound like a fab idea Carole, and very time saving as well. I just with we could get those over here in the UK. Thanks so much for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Made this for supper tonight, but as it was Boys Night on the homefront [mom and grandma both working still...] I added some extra taters and doubled the sausage.

    If you think regular people like this, you should see men and teenagers go after it!!!

    Wowzers, that went quick!!!

    There's just enough for my D-i-L to get a decent taste! We will eat this again, and soon. I like to cook, but something like this, easy / cheesy, is never a bad go to for a Boys Night. And as I always have sausage in the freezer, and potatoes in the cupboard...no brainer time.

  41. I've made this a few times since I found it. My family loves it! Sometimes I use it as a way to get rid of a fridge full of veggies. Last night I added bell peppers & asparagus to the mix just because I needed to use them up and it was really good. Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Adding carrots (maybe those baby carrots)would be good too

    ReplyDelete
  43. Those frozen hash brown potatoes would make it even easier!

  45. I made this for dinner tonight and everyone loved it. That rarely happens around here. I used red potatoes and no onions; put some minced garlic in when I tossed it with the seasonings. My husband said it is one of his favorite recipes I have tried. Definately a keeper!

  48. Are these sausages pre-cooked?

    ReplyDelete
  49. Karla, yes I do. You can find it in the chiller cabinet of the shops near the sandwich meats and hot dogs. Over here the brand is Mattsons. I am not sure what it is like in North America! xx

  50. I made this using turkey kielbasa since my husband now has an allergy to beef and pork since he was bitten by a Lone Star Tick. It was excellent using the turkey and a lot lower in calories. I'm making it again tonight. Thanks for the recipe.

  51. Sorry to hear about your husband Sue! It's nice to know that there are tasty alternatives available! I sure wish we could get the turkey kielbasa over here! xx

  52. Not sure if I got the potato sizes (?) wrong, but the mixture didn't spread out very flat and is taking over an hour and fifteen to cook, what am I doing wrong!?

    ReplyDelete
  53. 1/2 inch cubes of potato Katy and on a pan large enough you can spread them out in a single layer. The times should work well if you do that.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Made this for dinner tonight! Wonderful and easy, thanks for sharing.

  55. I live in the U.S. and have questions about the smoked sausage. I'm not familiar with using/cooking it. What does a package of smoked sausage mean? What size is it? Is it pre-cooked? (I understand from what you said that you removed the rind from it.)

    Thanks,
    Lea Ellen

    ReplyDelete
  56. Lea-Ellen, I am not familiar with what your sausage looks like over there. I can only tell you the size of ours. It weighs about half a pound and is about a twelve inch length and about an inch and a half in diameter. Here is a link to a photograph of it: http://mattessons.co.uk/our-products/smoked-pork-sausage/

    This is what I use. A package of this. You don't always need to remove the rind. Some have a rind and others do not.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Lea-Ellen, Packaged pre-cooked Kielbasa sausage is available for sale in the refrigerated meat section of any supermarket. You can choose all beef or regular Kielbasa. A popular national brand is Hillshire Farms. I believe a package weighs about a pound. No need to remove the casing. Unpackaged Kielbasa is also usually available at the market's meat counter.

  59. This was absofreakinglutely DELICIOUS!!! My S.O. just downed two huge plates, and if I could eat like him, I would've too!! SUPER easy and inexpensive, as of five minutes ago this is one of our favorites going into the list of top things to make very frequently!! I made ranch dressing ( the packet you mix up) and also had siracha on the side. Weeknight no~ brainer. Would also be great for football parties (go Steelers!) and potlucks. Thanks for the deliciousness in our lives!! :)

  61. I just tried this today. They taste really good, but the problem ia getting the cooking time down. I followed this recipe exactly, and my potatoes were not cooked through. I've had them in the oven for two hours now and rhey are still not cooked through.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I wonder if there was some confusion on the temperature? There are two temps listed, one is Celsius and the other is Fahrenheit. Maybe you used the wrong one? It would take forever to bake the potatoes at 200° Fahrenheit.

  62. I made this for dinner last week and there were no leftovers! Love, love, love it!! I am making this again tonight per my fiance's request because he didn't like the "fatty" pork ribs that I made for dinner haha. Oh, and time check: it's 10:38pm! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  63. So happy you and your fiance enjoy this Janice! xx

    ReplyDelete
  64. Rebecca, perhaps you have cut your potatoes too large or there is a problem with your oven's thermostat?? I have never had that problem. Potatoes cut in 1/2 inch cubes, and stirred every fifteen minutes should certainly be cooked within 45 minutes to an hour. You could bake a whole potato at that temperature for an hour and it would be cooked through. I think your oven must be really messed up.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I want this for breakfast along side soft-cooked or fried eggs.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I've made this a few times now. It's so yummy! I don't think it needs to cook for 45 mins. I've found that 30-40 mins is the perfect spot for us. 45 mins and the potatoes started to get mushy.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Thank you Rebekah! Clearly the other REbekah's oven isn't working properly! So glad that you enjoy it! The thing with cooking is it is subjective. Different ovens and even a slight difference in the ingredients can mean a difference in timings etc. Any good cook knows this. Recipe timings are merely guidelines to follow. I always start checking everything five minutes before it's done. I have had some cakes that say they only need 45 minutes, take an hour! Altitude, etc. also play a part! xxoo

  68. Just wondering what sides you make with this. Making for dinner tonight!

  69. Hi Shannon, I usually have baked beans and coleslaw or a tossed salad with this! I hope you enjoy it!

  70. I don't know if anyone has suggested this yet but I enjoy tossing in a packet of ranch dressing mix along with some Cajun seasoning that I mixed together and that really hits the spot for me.

  71. That sounds mighty tasty Matthew! Thanks for sharing!

  72. Trying it out now. Ekk...I added cayenne pepper twice instead of garlic powder (all I had on hand, no fresh garlic) so it will be interesting. Decided to add rolls and baked beans just in case! I will let you know.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Ok...so waaaaayyyyy to much cayenne pepper, however awesome dish and would definitely make again and probably soon. Note to self do not double up on cayenne pepper. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  74. Glad you enjoyed despite adding too much cayenne pepper!! I can't imagine! lol

    ReplyDelete
  75. 75% of the meal had to get thrown out because it stuck on the aluminum foil. I would definitely make it again but I would omit the aluminum foil and use a good non stick baking sheet instead.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Sorry that was your experience Patricia. Did you omit oiling the foil well as I suggest in the recipe???? I have never had that problem. Glad that you would make it again though. x

    ReplyDelete
  77. Could you use frozen potatoes? I have a bag of O'Brien potatoes and this would be a perfect recipe. Thanks!!

    ReplyDelete
  78. I can't think of why not Jolene! Sounds a perfect substitution, but obviously the cook time would be a lot less than the original recipe. let us know how you get on!

    ReplyDelete
  79. I'm not a natural cook but can follow a recipe. How much thyme and paprika?

    ReplyDelete
  80. It is meant to be to your own taste Dennise, but I would say 1/2 tsp dried thyme and 1/4 tsp paprika.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I made this for my family tonight and they loved it! The only thing that I think you need to add is estimate measurements for the spices. It's just good to have a ballpark idea of how much to use. I see you said 1/2 tsp of thyme above and I wish I'd known that because I put a tablespoon and I think that was just too much. Overall, great dish. Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  82. Glad you enjoyed Shanna despite your overuse of thyme. I suppose I was thinking when I put according to taste most people would have some idea of how much to use. I will suggest in the recipe how much. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  83. This is so simple and yummy! I couldn't get over how much I liked this. I didn't use any thyme. :)

    ReplyDelete
  84. I am so glad you enjoyed it Michelle! Thanks for letting me know! x

    ReplyDelete
  85. I didn't think this would be all that good. Really thought it would be bland but wanted to give it a try. It was amazing! I didn't have any thyme so I used the italian seasoning I had on hand and it worked out just great! A day later my daughter is asking for this to be made again!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Rachel, I am so very glad that you enjoyed this! Bland it is not! ☺

  90. Marie, for a novice cook would you include the measure for the seasonings? Thank you very much.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Hi
    Gamecock cook, for seasonings I would start with 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper and 1/2 tsp thyme. You can always add a bit more after if you don't think it is enough!

    ReplyDelete
  92. Oh this is sooo good...i have done this many years now and my family also like a fried egg on top !! really good

    ReplyDelete
  93. What kind of potatoes should I use? Brown, red or yellow??

    ReplyDelete
  94. I recommend a good all rounder, a red would probably do the job very well.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Thanks for a quick dinner, lunch, breakfast for dinner meal. Lol

    ReplyDelete
  96. This is in the oven now. I sprinkled a little bit of cheese in with it maybe 3/4 cup fine shredded mild cheddar. Instead of thyme or paprika, I used half a packet of ranch dip mix. It smells amazing. My husband's aunt bakes potato chunks in butter and ranch dip mix so I knew it would go well. I used half a package so it wasn't so strong.

    ReplyDelete
  97. That sounds delicious Unknown!

  106. This is something I have made for my family fairly often over the years, Salt, pepper and parsley and cloves of garlic.tossed in my family loves garlic. I've used the O'BRien potatoes in the freezer many times when we are in a hurry or throwing together a late meal you don't want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. I have also replaced the smoked sausage with canned corned beef to make a corned beef hash with a over easy egg on top. DELISH!

  110. Ok, really, really dumb question, but is this precooked sausage or raw?

    ReplyDelete
  111. Suzi, I use smoked sausage. I am not sure if it is precooked or not. I think you can eat it without cooking it, but I never have.

    ReplyDelete
  112. I have fixed this for years, only I made mine in a skillet. I also added about a half a pound of ground sausage. When everything is cooked, I also like to scramble about a half dozen eggs to pour over everything. When the eggs are set, add your cheese to the skillet, then cover long enough for the cheese to melt.

  113. Hi Joe, that sounds delicious, but more like a breakfast casserole. I will give it a go sometime though! It sounds ab fab!

  127. How big of a pan? And can i use a foil pan?
    Thinking about making it tonight ☺

    ReplyDelete
  128. My baking sheet is about 12 by 15, with sides. I don't recommend a foil pan as it would be too thin!

    ReplyDelete
  129. I'm sorry if somebody already asked this: I'd like to bring this to a potluck at work, but I have no way of reheating it. Could I make it, then keep it warm in a crock pot?

    ReplyDelete
  130. If I cannot reheat this until I get to a potluck (about an hour and a half away), will it still taste okay?

    ReplyDelete
  131. I cannot see why it wouldn't KristenA,but not having done it this way myself,I can't say with any assurity that it would. xo

    ReplyDelete
  132. definiately going too make yum yum!

    ReplyDelete
  133. Thanks Morgann! Sweet potatoes would be tasty, but I have never had a sweet potato come out crisp. Good however. xo

    ReplyDelete
  134. I grew up with a recipe very similar to this we used to use Red New potatoes though and we would use a bit of paprika and garlic powder. I'm actually making this tonight. However not much for tyme but thas just personal preference. I also tend to serve this over a bed of red beans and rice. I know it's unhealthy and lots of calories but it's ohhhh soooooo goood. Thanks for giving me a bit of a reminiscent reminder of growing up. And kiddos for an awesome recipe.
