Sausage and Potato Breakfast Bake

Hearty enough to fill you up until dinner, yet simple enough to pop it in the oven and forget about it

Weekends are also for cooking. If you read this ABMF, even a couple of recipes, you will notice that I tend to cook simple, non-fussy food. Family-style food, even. Sunday cooking is no exception.  One of my very favorite weekend breakfasts is this sausage and potato breakfast bake.  Hearty enough to fill you up until dinner, yet simple enough to pop it in the oven and forget about it, this breakfast is both comfort food for the soul and an economic answer to feeding a crowd, or two people with leftovers.

By roasting the sausage, peppers, onions and potatoes together at a high heat, they all get a bit of that glorious brown, crispy goodness that takes these humble ingredients to the next level. Each ingredient flavors each other, and all are perfectly cooked at the same time.

Similar to a hash, but more rustic, I like to serve this with an over-easy egg.

It’s that simple. Breakfasts like this one leave me more time for Sunday reading. Cookbook reading, that is.


This isn’t just breakfast or brunch food. It would also work wonderfully as a simple lunch or dinner with a green salad.

If you wanted to veganize this, leave out the sausage and prepare it the same way.

Recipe Steps


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.


Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place sausage, potatoes, onions and peppers on the baking sheet and arrange in a single layer. Season with Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil and toss with your hands, making sure everything is coated evenly with oil and spices. Rearrange in a single layer.


Bake for 15 minutes, remove from oven and gently stir to turn everything over for even cooking and browning. Place back in the oven and cook for another 15 or 20 minutes, or until the sausage and potatoes are browned.


Serve with an over-easy egg on the top.


Tried and tested recipes I really make for my family and friends. Really. Simple, hearty comfort food made with fresh, local ingredients.
