full of flavor

Sausage and potatoes was surprisingly flavorful, considering how simple the seasonings were. It did take a little more time to sauté all of the elements individually before adding them to the baking dish, but I think it helped to give the finished dish a better texture and flavor.

This hits all of the comfort food notes for me. Potatoes, meat, and all the flavor. The addition of peppers adds another layer of taste and texture that takes this dish to a new level.

It is hearty and filling and can be easy tweaked to accommodate picky eaters. This was very kid-friendly and another dinner idea to add to the rotation!

PREP. Preheat the oven to 400. Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with cooking spray.

SAUSAGE. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil to a large skillet. Add the sausage links to the skillet, and cook, turning frequently, until browned. Remove from the skillet and add to the prepared baking dish.

POTATOES. Add another two tablespoons of oil to the skillet and add the sliced potatoes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook until lightly browned, stirring frequently. Add the potatoes to the baking dish.

VEGETABLES. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the skillet, then add the peppers and onions. Sprinkle the vegetables with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until the vegetables are softened. Add the vegetables to the baking dish, and stir to combine.

BAKE. Sprinkle with the Italian seasoning, then pour the chicken stock over the top of the sausage and vegetables. Bake 25-30 minutes, until the broth is bubbling and the potatoes are tender.

tips + variations

I used mild sausage for this sausage and potatoes recipe, but using a spicy sausage is an easy way to adjust the spiciness of the dish and add a bit of heat. Another option to add a bit of heat is to sprinkle on red chili flakes or provide a bit of hot sauce to drizzle on.

I usually always have russet potatoes on hand, which is what was used in this recipe, but you could easily use other potatoes. In fact I think that using baby tri colored potatoes would make this dish look as delicious as it tastes.

Note: It did take a little more time to sauté all of the elements individually before adding them to the baking dish, but I think it helped to give the finished dish a better texture and flavor. However, if you wish, you can skip sautéing the veggies before adding them to the baking dish.

You may need to add a few extra minutes to the bake time to make sure everything is tender. I would still brown the sausage on the stove top before baking them.
