Easy Oven-fried Potatoes and Sausage Recipe


Easy Gluten-Free Recipes for Weeknights

When the budget is tight, fried potatoes with sizzling sausage chunks and caramelized onions is a tasty meal to throw together, but it’s not very practical for a weeknight supper. Frying potatoes means you have to keep a constant watch over what’s happening in the pan. If you don’t, the potatoes will stick and burn. Cooking gluten-free recipes is difficult enough without having to stand guard in the kitchen, and that’s exactly what the following recipe eliminates. Baking everything in the oven leaves your hands free to take care of your family and gives you time after work to do the things that matter most.

You don’t have to be eating gluten-free to enjoy the following recipe. It’s made with fresh potatoes and vegetables, Polish sausage, and aromatic spices that will make your house smell yummy while you play with the kids or relax in front of the evening news.

The only ingredient you have to watch out for is the sausage. Make sure that you read the ingredient list on the back of the package before purchasing. What you need to stay away from is wheat, barley or rye. Any grain product must be clearly listed on the label, so if the Polish sausage has gluten in it, the label will specifically list wheat, barley or rye in the ingredients. If you don’t care for Polish sausage, just substitute a type that you do like. Even spicy hot dogs will work.

Easy Oven-fried Potatoes and Sausage Recipe

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 50 minutes

Servings: 4

6 potatoes, peeled and cubed

1 cup chopped onions

1/2 cup chopped bell peppers

1 pound Polish sausage, cut into thick slices

1/4 cup butter, melted

1 tablespoon chopped garlic

1 teaspoon seasoned salt

1 teaspoon dried basil

1/2 teaspoon seasoned pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Spritz a large baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. Add potatoes, onions, bell peppers, carrots, and sausage chunks. Stir until well mixed. Pour the melted butter over everything and stir thoroughly. Sprinkle with the chopped garlic and spices. Give it one more toss to evenly distribute the herbs and spices. Pop it into the oven and bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes.

Carefully stir the potato mixture, being sure to flip everything from the bottom to the top, so it cooks evenly. That is easiest to do with a pancake turner. Stir again. Repeat the process of baking and stirring until potatoes are cooked through and nicely browned. Serve immediately.

This gluten-free recipe makes a complete meal, but if you’re feeding a crowd, a simple salad on the side would make a nice accompaniment. Some fresh fruit, such as orange wedges or fresh pineapple slices, would also go well with this.
