What Sausage To Bake On a Sheetpan
You can pick different sausages for this dinner - look for something roughly bratwurst sized.
If you chose a pre-cooked sausage (some bratwurst, polska kielbasa, or other smoked sausages) reduce their cook-time as you'll want to bake them for flavor - but they won't need as much as they are already cooked.
- Italian Sausage
- Polska Kielbasa - reduce cooktime as it will be pre-cooked

Keto Sausage Bake
This recipe was designed to be an easy and quick family friendly dinner - but can really easily be made low carb friendly and keto diet approved with a simple modification.
To make this dish keto, please omit diced potatoes and replace with a head of cauliflower, cut into 2" chunks (similar to a potato wedge shape).

How To Tell When Sausage is Done
Sausage, especially sausages with some herbs, can look pink even when fully cooked - and some can look cooked, when not yet at a food safe temperature.
Because sausage is ground, and stuffed into casing, there is more opportunity for bacteria to grow - so please fully cook sausages, everytime you cook them.
For this reason we strongly recommend using a digital food thermometer to gauge when your sausage is done cooking.
Sausage is considered free from food-borne illness and done cooking at 160 degrees.
What to Serve With Sausage Bake
