The key ingredients you will need for this dish include:
- Sausage: You can use any sausages you like for this recipe, but I like to use chicken sausages.
- Red potatoes: Any variety of waxy potatoes will work well here. If you aren’t a fan of red potatoes, you can use new potatoes, fingerlings, or baby potatoes.
- Veggies: My go-to veggies for this dish are broccoli, red onions, zucchini, and red bell peppers. However, any of your favorite roasting veggies will work.
- Spices: In addition to salt and pepper, we are going to season this dish with dried rosemary, thyme, and smoked paprika.
- Olive oil: This helps to produce more golden brown colors and enhances the flavor profile of the rest of our ingredients.
The beautiful thing about this recipe is that it’s incredibly versatile! You can get creative and switch it up depending on what you have at home or your family’s flavor preferences. Here are some of my favorite ways to switch up this recipe:
- Make it Cajun: For a Cajun twist, use your favorite Cajun seasoning blend or make your own using salt, pepper, paprika, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, thyme, and cayenne.
- Make it Italian: Try swapping out the spices in this recipe for an Italian seasoning blend to create an Italian-inspired flavor profile.
- Swap out the veggies: You can use any roasting veggies you have at home! Some of my favorite swaps include carrots, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, cauliflower, and brussels sprouts.
- Switch up the meat: If you don’t have sausage or aren’t a big fan of sausage, you can swap it out for any other meat you like. Chicken breast, salmon filets, and shrimp all work great.
- Add cheese: Try taking the dish out a few minutes early and topping it with cheese like mozzarella or parmesan before finishing it off in the oven. If you want the cheese to get golden brown, broil the dish for the last 2 minutes.
- Add bacon: Add diced pre-cooked bacon before cooking or toss the dish with bacon crumbles at the end for extra rich flavors.
- Garnish with fresh herbs: For a stunning pop of color and tons of added flavor, try garnishing with chopped herbs like cilantro or parsley just before serving the dish.
