One Pan Sausage Squash bake

If you love sausage, and you’re looking for a delicious and super easy way to make a delicious one pot dinner, this recipe is for you.

We’re baking bratwurst (or other sausages) with potatoes and zucchini so you can make your main dish and sides all in one – for a hearty, rich dinner right from the same sheet pan!

While this dish contains potatoes, we’re also including notes below on how you can make a delicious keto sausage bake with a simple swap for cauliflower instead of potatoes – so don’t shy away from this recipe if you’re staying low carb.

You can also swap out some of the vegetables we have for others, and use other types of sausages, using our notes below.

We hope you love this recipe as much as we do!

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
  • Bratwurst
  • Polska Kielbasa – reduce cooktime as it will be pre-cooked

Some of our favorite ideas to bake with one pan sausage bake:

  • Broccoli

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

This dish is an all-in-one recipe, where the side dish bakes with the main dish – so a side isn’t strictly needed – but we’re rounding up some of our favorites to serve with this sausage bake below:
