Oven-Roasted Smoked Sausage with Cabbage, Potatoes & Peppers

I LOVE a recipe where you can just dump everything together and just cook it. Usually, though, this means you've got to eat some kind of casserole. Now, I DO love casseroles, but they aren't always the most aesthetically pleasing. 

So, when I came across this recipe, I was intrigued. I've made a few changes, like adding cabbage and garlic, along with some thyme, but this recipe is still super simple. You get your "meat and potatoes" all in one awesome, oven-roasted dish. Since, as I've mentioned before, I ALWAYS have banana peppers on hand, I didn't even need to make a trip to the grocery store. Thankfully, I had like 4 or 5 smoked sausages in the deep freezer, too!

Oven-Roasted Smoked Sausage with Cabbage, Potatoes & Peppers
adapted from Lila's Apron

1 package smoked sausage or polska kielbasa, cut into 1/4" slices
1 onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 bell peppers, seeded and sliced into strips
1 small head of cabbage, roughly chopped
4-5 Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2" chunks
3 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried rosemary
Salt & pepper
1 12oz jar banana pepper rings, drained

In a large bowl, combine the sausage, onion, garlic, bell peppers, cabbage & potatoes.

Add the olive oil and toss to combine (use your hands for this!).

Spread in an even layer onto a large baking sheet (one with sides), coated with nonstick spray or foil. I used a big aluminum baking pan that I got YEARS ago from a local restaurant supply houseAdd the thyme and rosemary, then season with salt and pepper.

Evenly top with the drained banana pepper rings.

Bake in a 400° oven for 30-35 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.


  1. I tried this and it was delicious. Thanks.

  2. This recipe filled the house with an incredible aroma and was absolutely delicious! I sprinkled a little ground mustard and paprika over the mix before tossing it in the oil to customize the recipe to our tastes. I personally would have never thought to put jarred banana peppers on top of a recipe like this, but the banana peppers made this recipe AWESOME!

    1. So glad you enjoyed this dish, Angie!
