To make this easy sheet pan dinner you will need

1 pound Polka Kielbasa, the fully cooked variety, sliced into ¼ – ½ inch rounds

1½ pounds Red Potatoes, about 2 large red potatoes

1 Small Onion, cut into roughly ½ – ¼ inch pieces

2 tablespoons Canola Oil

1 teaspoon Kosher Salt

½ teaspoon Garlic Powder

½ teaspoon Dried Oregano

Prep work

Prep work is a snap in this sheet pan dinner. There are only three ingredients to prepare and they will all go into the same bowl.

 

Let’s start with preheating the oven to 350°F.

 

Cut the sausage into roughly ¼ – ½ inch rounds. Keep them bite sized.

Next, cut the potato into 1 inch pieces, again keep them bite sized. Don’t peel the potato, the red color looks beautiful. Plus, the skin is so thin on red potatoes that it really doesn’t make a big difference texturally.

 

Don’t cut the potatoes too small so they hold up to the baking time and the stirring.

Finally, cut the onions into roughly ¼ – ½ inch pieces. Don’t dice them too small or they’ll just about disappear with the baking time.

 

Now, add the sausage, potatoes, onions and canola oil to a large bowl. Use a rubber spatula to stir and toss the sausage and potatoes and coat them with the oil.

 

Add the kosher salt, garlic powder and oregano to the bowl and stir and toss again until everything is coated with the seasoning.

Add the sausage and potatoes and arrange them so that they are in a single layer and not mounded.

  • Bake the sausage and potatoes for 15 minutes.
  • Remove the baking sheet from the oven and give everything a good stir, while turning the pieces. Arrange the sausage and potatoes again so that they are in a single layer.
  • Bake for another 15 minutes.
  • Remove the baking sheet from the oven and stir one last time. Again, turning the pieces and arranging everything in one layer.
  • Bake for 15 more minutes, or until the potatoes are tender and we’re done!
