Tips & Tricks to Making Sausage and Potatoes

  • Complete the prep ahead of time so this is ready to pop in the oven when you want to make it for a meal.
  • Use a storage bag that has a zip-top closure to toss the ingredients more evenly than using a mixing bowl.
  • Add some peppers for a tangier flavor, if that sort of thing sounds delicious to you.
  • Play around with the seasoning, such as adding in cajun seasoning, to make these sausage and potatoes taste just right for your taste buds.
  • Place all of the ingredients in aluminum foil and cook on your grill for a summer gathering.
  • Do not overcook, the potatoes will crumble apart and make this meal look more like a hash brown mixture.Sausage and potatoes with diced onions in a lime green bowlPin
