Sheet Pan Kielbasa and Potatoes

Sheet pan kielbasa and potato is so simple to make, and the fat from the kielbasa soaks into the potatoes- so it’s bursting with flavor!

WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE THIS RECIPE

Ingredients for Sheet Pan Kielbasa and Potatoes
  • Potato: Use petite potatoes- I alternate red, Yukon gold, purple, new potatoes, or a combination. You can easily substitute russet if that’s what you have available- be sure to cut the potatoes into one-inch pieces to ensure they roast at the same rate as the other ingredients.
  • Kielbasa: Kielbasa is my favorite, and they are found in the same aisle as hot dogs and bratwurst in the grocery store. You can also use Italian sausage, andouille, chicken or turkey sausage, and chorizo would result in a tasty meal
  • Parsley: I use dried parsley to flavor and garnish the dish, but use finely chopped fresh parsley if you prefer.
  • Salt + Pepper

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What’s the best way to cook kielbasa and potatoes?


Sheet Pan: I am forever a fan of sheet-pan meals purely out of convenience- these meals take less time to make and leave fewer dishes to wash. That’s a win-win for me!


Skillet: Warm a skillet over medium-high heat, then add the kielbasa. Stir regularly to prevent burning. When the kielbasa finishes, set it aside. Next, add the potatoes and season with salt, pepper, and parsley. Cook the potatoes over medium heat for 10-15 minutes. Reduce the heat and return the kielbasa to the pan; cook for 10 minutes to finish.


Air Fryer: You can easily make this dish in the air fryer, but work in batches. Begin with potatoes as they take longer to cook. Set the air fryer to 400° F (204° C) and cook for 10 minutes. Shake the basket to move them around and bake for another 10 minutes. Add the potatoes to a mixing bowl. Adjust the heat for the air fryer to 380° F (193° C), and bake kielbasa for 4 minutes. Shake the basket and cook for another 4 minutes. Add all the ingredients to the mixing bowl and stir to mix. 

Does kielbasa need to be cooked?

Outside of Poland, kielbasa found in grocery stores are cured or smoked, so eat them as is, but they taste better heated up.

Do you take the skin off the kielbasa?

It’s a matter of preference. You can remove the skin if you want, but it’s not necessary.

How do you know when kielbasa is done?

Since it is precooked, all you’re looking for in this recipe is to warm up and brown the kielbasa.
