Smoked Sausage - If you have never had smoked sausage (of ANY kind) made from a butcher you are missing out. The taste and flavor of smoked sausage are phenomenal. Or you can get a flavored sausage like chicken and apple to help lower the calories.
Potatoes - When cutting the potatoes make sure they are the same size as the sausage rounds are so that everything cooks easily in the oven. Same goes for the onions.
Use red or yellow potatoes
Onions - When roasted onions in the oven they almost turn out like caramelized onions that you would make in a skillet. Just these three ingredients are so simple and make for one tasty dish.

How to make Oven Roasted Sausage and Potatoes
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 400*F.
Step 2: Line a large baking sheet with tin foil, and spray with cooking spray. Set aside.
Step 3: Put the sausage rounds, onions, and potatoes into a large bowl. Drizzle with a tablespoon of olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and paprika. Toss together with your hands until everything is evenly distributed. Pour this out onto the sheet pan and spread out the sausage and potatoes.
Step 4: 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.
Tips for Oven Roasted Smoked Sausage and Potatoes
- If you are looking to make this dish a little more Weight Watcher friendly use chicken sausage or turkey sausage instead of smoked sausage. This will help lower the points and use less oil as well. If you use cooking spray instead oil make sure to spray the potatoes and sausage liberally.
- Cooked chicken sausage is 3oz for 3 smart points
- Cooked turkey sausage is 3 oz for 4 smart points
- Smoked paprika is a good sub for regular paprika.
- Use olive oil cooking spray in place of olive oil
- Disclaimer: The pictures were taken made with ground pork and since I made this recipe I have used chicken and turkey sausage. I'll try to post an updated picture using these two sausages. I apologize if that misleading.
Air Fryer Method
Set air fryer temp to 350. Place potatoes and onions in a 5.3qt air fryer basket and drizzle with olive oil.
Season with salt, pepper, and paprika. Toss the potatoes and onions until everything is coated. Set the timer for 6 minutes and let the air fryer go.
Once the 6 minutes are up, take out the basket and add the sausage rounds and continue cooking for 6 minutes. This recipe is so good in the air fryer!

We use smoked paprika, sweet onion, and a mix of potato and sweet potato. It is so yummy! My family loves this.
Tweaked a bit. I used sliced jalapeños instead of onion, a foil bag on bbq wich kept sausage tender then last 15 minutes uncovered to let everything lightly brown was very delicious could also use this method in the oven with butter. Butter makes everything better
This is very similar to a Swedish recipe I always made, its freakin delicious! Try adding a fried runny egg on top, and the food will make sweet sweet love in your mouth, lol. 😛
Eggs sound like a delicious add in!
I did tweak the recipe a little, adding minced garlic, parsley and oregano. We LOVED it!
There are some leftovers so I think I’ll add egg to it for a quick breakfast dish.
Depends on your oven but yes that happens.
the sausage shouldn't be in the oven till the last 15 minutes because it'll burn in 45 minutes at 400°and it's better when you take the sausage and boil it in water for 10 minutes and then put it in the oven the last 15 minutes otherwise the recipe is pretty good
this smelled so good when it was cooking thank you for this recipe.
The thyme you'd add in beginning when you season the potatoes and sausage. Cheese you can add after everything is cooked.
