These ingredients are together for a reason.
Each ingredient tastes great on its own. But. When you combine Italian sausage (hot or mild) with onions and peppers (and the potatoes just up the ante)…it’s cause for some taste-bud celebration.
Roasting them together couldn’t be easier. I just blanche the potatoes first to give them a start. But then everybody into the pool! (Oven, really.) MMMmmmm!
Baked Sausage, Peppers & Potatoes
4-5 small red potatoes
2 medium onions, yellow or white
2 red or green bell peppers
1-1.5 lbs Italian sausages
olive oil for drizzling
salt & pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Rinse & peel the potatoes (or leave peel on if you prefer) and cut them into ½ inch wedges. Bring a medium pot of water to boil. Blanche the potatoes for 2 -3 minutes. Drain.
Peel onions and cut them into ½ inch wedges. Cut the peppers in half. Pull out the stem, and seeds. Cut into ½ inch strips. Line a sheet pan with foil. Add the potatoes, onions and peppers. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt & pepper. Toss to coat.
Cut each sausage into 2 or 3 chunks, or cut in half and then split lengthwise. Add to the vegetables. Roast in oven for about 45 minutes until vegetables and sausage are cooked through and starting to brown. Turn vegetables and sausages 1-2 times while cooking. Serve hot or warm.
