This cheesy sausage potato bake is a super easy family dinner that tastes wonderful. In fact, it’s so good it’s hard to resist going back for seconds. If you like oven roasted sausage, you’ll love this one-pan meal. Even if you don’t, give it a try. It is so delicious.
I’m always looking for ways to save time in the kitchen. I had these ingredients in the fridge, so I decided to put them together.
One-Pan Meals and Casseroles
Most of us are so busy that we don’t have time to cook a multi-course meal every single night of the week. I’ve managed to figure out a way to serve meals that take very little time in the kitchen.
In fact, if there are corners that can be cut, I find them. And now I like to share them with you.
Life is too short to spend hours and hours in the kitchen, unless that’s what you want to do. But our families shouldn’t have to sacrifice flavor.
This cheesy sausage potato bake has flavor, nutrition, and a visual presence that lets everyone know that you care to make good meals. And after the first bite, you’ll see lots of smiles!
Cheesy Sausage Potato Bake Ingredients
Since I used items I had on hand, you can do that too. I used smoked turkey sausage, but you can use whatever kind of sausage you prefer. I’ve also made this with smoked beef sausage and kielbasa.
Here are the other ingredients I used:
- Cubed hash brown potatoes
- Olive oil
- Cheddar cheese
- Seasoned salt
- Black pepper
If you have another vegetable, use that in place of the broccoli. Here are some other veggies I’ve used:
- Green bell pepper strips
- Red bell pepper strips
- Green beans
- Onion cut into strips
- Sweet potatoes
You can also use a different type of cheese. Cheddar is what I have on hand now, but we also enjoy Colby or jack cheese.
I’m a big believer in choosing ingredients you have on hand and that you enjoy. That way, you’re more likely to love the final results.

How to Make a Cheesy Sausage Potato Bake
After you preheat the oven and spray the pan with nonstick spray, mix the potatoes with olive oil.
Add the seasoned salt and pepper and spread the potatoes on a pan.
While the potatoes are cooking, cut the smoked sausage into bite-size pieces.
Next, pull the potatoes from the oven and scatter the smoked sausage and broccoli florets around the pan. Put the pan back in the oven and continue to bake until everything is done.
Finally, remove the pan from the oven and sprinkle the cheese on top of everything. Return it to the oven and bake until the cheese melts.
More One-Pan Meals
One-pan dinners are always good because you only have one pan to clean. Since I use foil to cover the pan, cleanup is super fast.
Balance has always been a key element when I cook meals for my husband and me. I formed this habit many years ago.
That’s why I always find a way to include a vegetable in our meals. I used broccoli, but green beans or Brussels sprouts would be just as good.
According to Health.com, broccoli is packed with nutrients, including vitamins A, B6, B12, C, magnesium, selenium, and many more.
When our daughters still lived at home, I made sure they got protein and veggies. Now that they’re grown and have their own households, I continue to cook the same way.
This frozen burrito casserole is one of the most delicious dinners I make, yet it is faster to throw together than ordering takeout.
When I need to drop a pound or two, I make this scrumptious low-carb Italian beef and cabbage casserole. It doesn’t taste like diet food because it isn’t. My husband and I both enjoy this one!
The big difference now is that we have leftovers. I rarely have to create something new for lunch because we usually have last night’s dinner in the refrigerator.
