Roasted potatoes and Brussels sprouts are combined with spicy sausage and plenty of cheese to create an irresistible dinner.

Cheesy Roasted Potatoes with Crisp Brussels Sprouts and Spicy Sausage is a dinner that everyone devours!

Quite a few years ago, I stumbled across a dish that combined Brussels sprouts with pasta and potatoes. Several days later, I couldn’t get that combination out of my head.

Sausage and Brussel Sprouts

As I started playing with the idea of using Brussels sprouts in a main dish, I wanted something a little heartier than the bacon that I typically pair with Brussels sprouts.

Sausage is one of those magic recipe ingredients. It almost doesn’t matter what you add to it, sausage has the ability to flavor all the other ingredients brilliantly.

I paired some spicy sausage with the Brussels and I LOVED the combination of flavors in this meal. One of my boys pointed out that the very best bites were the ones with a potato chunk, a sprout, sausage, and cheese together; I couldn’t agree more.

The first time I made this, I tasted it before taking a picture and then I couldn’t stop sneaking bites as I was attempting to photograph it. I lasted for about 30 seconds worth of clicks and then we dove into this meal.

Brussels with Potatoes is a mouthwatering combination!

In the years since then, I’ve attempted to reshoot this recipe multiple times in order to update the photos, and without fail, I decide not to bother with photos as soon as it’s out of the oven. This is one of my all-time favorite recipes on this website.

A couple of weeks ago, I finally practiced enough restraint to shoot new photos before diving into this and I’m still as much in love with this recipe as ever. I’m oh so happily re-sharing the recipe with you today, in case it wasn’t already on your radar.

Roasted Potatoes with Brussels Sprouts and Sausage

Roasted Potatoes and Brussels Sprouts

I’ve made this recipe several different ways. The original version included a couple of extra dishes, but even with a few extra pans to rinse, it was a very easy dinner.

However, over time I have simplified it a good bit. Just add the Brussels to the sheet pan along with the potatoes when they’re about halfway through cooking. No need to dirty another pan there.

And if you have a large enough skillet, (I love this Misen pan!) then you’ll be able to combine everything in the same oven-safe pan that you cook the sausage in and bake it in that same pan to melt the cheese in the oven.

If you need a bigger dish, or simply prefer a prettier presentation, you can combine it all in a greased 9×13 casserole dish before baking it.

Potatoes + Brussels Sprouts + Sausage + Cheese adds up to one spectacular meal!

To make this recipe, you’ll start by roasting the potatoes. While the potatoes are in the oven, trim and halve the Brussels sprouts. Toss the Brussels with oil, salt, and pepper.

Add the Brussels to the pan with the potatoes and continue roasting until the potatoes and Brussels are both lightly browned and tender.

Meanwhile, cook and crumble the sausage in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the roasted potatoes and Brussels sprouts to the skillet with the sausage.

Sprinkle with thyme and stir in the cubes of cheese as evenly as possible throughout the dish. Sprinkle with Parmesan.

Bake until the cheese has melted, about 15 minutes. Let rest for 10 minutes before serving. Stir if desired, right before serving.

Roasted potatoes and Brussel sprouts have been a regular dinner combination in our home for nearly ten years now and I can’t recommend it highly enough. For a long time, I would make this and then portion it into containers for my lunches. I do the same with Roasted Potatoes with Bell Peppers, Onions and Bacon.

This is something that I will very happily eat several days in a row. Unfortunately for me, my kids have grown to love this as well and these days I’m lucky to get any of the leftovers for myself.

Tortellini Vegetable Soup and Linguini with Spring Vegetables are both loaded with great vegetables too. For a low-carb option that is full of flavor and perfect with any meat option, The Best Easy Cauliflower Rice is next on my list to try.

    Love this recipe .. thank you .. only had small amount Brussels so used some broccoli, added about ten minutes at end .. excellent5 stars

  2. Stacy says

    I really like this recipe because it is so versatile. In my case, I am trying to drop weight. I thought about the sausage replacement and I realized why not use that new white turkey hot dogs in place of sausage and towards the end, add in some cut up Canadian bacon? Olive oil is good for you so in my case keep that in and mind how much if it is used.5 stars

    I made this tonight for dinner and just added shishito peppers. It was really good. I enjoyed it alot and I have enough for us to have dinner tomorrow night.4 stars

  4. Deborah says

    My family thought this was too dry. Would a marinara sauce taste good for moisture or something else?

    • Mary Younkin says

      Sure thing, Deborah. To be honest, between the cheesy potatoes and sausage, it shouldn’t have been dry at all. However, a marinara would definitely add moisture.

    • Mary Younkin says

      I’ve made it and then reheated leftovers in the microwave, but I’ve never done it that way to serve with a meal. I imagine it could be reheated covered in the oven as well.

    Made this for dinner tonight. Followed recipe based on 4 servings with a few additions to ckean out my fridge😮 While browning sausage meat, I added 2 cloves garlic, chopped; 1 small onion, sliced; and a handful of sliced mini portabellos. Just befire adding the cheese topping, I tossed in a few green beans that were starting to look sad. They cooked just fine in the oven as cheese melted. It was a hit with family. Will definitely make this again.5 stars
