German Sausage Sheet Pan Dinner
This easy German Sausage Sheet Pan Dinner recipe is perfect for whipping up and throwing in the oven on a busy weeknight, or for a weekend gathering complete with lots of cold beer. Flavorful bratwurst and crispy potatoes are roasted to perfect in the oven, and served up with fresh made beer cheese and a quick purple sauerkraut. It will make any day feel like Oktoberfest (but dancing on the tables is up to you!).
- 1 Pound Baby Potatoes Halved
- 1 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
- 1 Tsp Garlic Powder
- Salt & Pepper To Taste
- 4 Links German-Style Sausage (like Bratwurst or Kielbasa) Sliced if desired
- For serving on the side: mustard of your choice, purple sauerkraut, smoky beer cheese, and soft pretzels
Preheat the oven to 400F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil if desired.
Spread the potato halves out on the baking sheet. Drizzle with the vegetable oil, sprinkle on the garlic powder, plus a generous pinch of salt and pepper to your taste. Toss to combine everything.
Bake potatoes for 20 minutes. Remove sheet pan from oven and use tongs to toss the potatoes around a little bit. Add the sausage to the sheet pan with the potatoes and return to the oven for another 20 minutes until the potatoes are crispy and the sausage are starting to brown.
Serve the sausage and potatoes with your favorite mustard on the side. Optional: serve purple sauerkraut and smoky beer cheese on the side as well along with some soft pretzels.
