Italian Sausage and Potatoes Recipe

Italian sausage and potatoes cooked together make a comforting and yummy dinner that's really simple to make. The potatoes get crispy and soak up all the tasty flavors from hanging out with the sausage and onions. We like to add cherry peppers and grated Pecorino Romano cheese at the end because they make everything taste even better! Serve it with a simple side like a green salad or our orange fennel salad, and you've got a perfect meal for any night of the week.

  • Chopping-board
  • Knife
  • Wooden spoon
  • Cast iron pot


  • 2 1/2 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes cut into wedges
  • 2 pounds Italian sausage you can also use regular sausage links
  • 1 medium Onion sliced
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried Oregano
  • 1 1/2 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1 tsp Black pepper
  • 3/8 cup Olive oil
  • 3 tbsp minced Parsley
  • 3 medium Cherry peppers optional, for serving
  • 1/2 cup grated Pecorino Romano cheese for serving


  • Heat your oven to 425°F (really hot!). Put one oven rack on the lowest level and another in the middle.
  • In a big bowl, mix the potato wedges with olive oil, salt, pepper, and oregano until they’re all covered.
  • Spread the potatoes out on a baking sheet. If you have lots of potatoes, you might need two baking sheets.
  • Put the baking sheet(s) in the oven on the bottom rack and let the potatoes cook for about 15 minutes. Then, take them out and flip them over.
  • After flipping the potatoes, add the sliced onions on top, and then lay the sausages over everything.
  • Put the baking sheet(s) back in the oven on the middle rack and cook for another 30 minutes or until the sausages are cooked through.
  • If you want the sausages to look extra golden, switch the oven to broil for the last 1-3 minutes. But keep an eye on them!
  • When everything’s done, sprinkle the minced parsley over the top. Serve with cherry peppers and/or Pecorino Romano cheese on the side. Enjoy!


  • If you can’t find pinwheel sausage, regular Italian sausage works fine. Just adjust the cooking time.
  • If your sausage isn’t brown enough, you can broil them for a few minutes at the end.
  • Yukon Gold potatoes are best, but you can also use russet potatoes.
