Tips for Perfect Sausage & Potatoes

  • Use a good quality sausage. I prefer to use spicy Italian sausage, but any kind will work.
  • Make sure that the potatoes are about the same size so that they cook evenly. You want them to be about the same size so that they cook evenly. If your potatoes are on the smaller side, you might want to cut them in half or even quarters.
  • Be sure to season your dish well with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. I sometimes like to add a touch of smoked paprika for a bit of extra flavor.

What kind of sausage is best for this recipe?

Why potatoes aren’t cooking evenly?

There are a few potential reasons why your potatoes aren’t cooking evenly.

  1. The first thing you should do is check to make sure that the potatoes are all of a similar size so that they cook at the same rate.
  2. Next, make sure that the oven is properly preheated before adding the potatoes. If your oven has hot spots, it can cause some of the potatoes to cook faster than others.
  3. Another possibility is that you’re using too much or too little oil when you roast them. If there’s not enough oil, the potatoes will stick to the baking sheet and not cook evenly. If there’s too much oil, it will create a barrier between the potato and the heat of the oven, preventing them from crisping up.
  4. Finally, make sure that you’re stirring them occasionally during baking so that they cook evenly on all sides.
