Easy Baked Italian Sausages Recipe

This oven baked Italian sausage recipe is so simple and straight-forward, you might wonder how it made its way on a food blog ;) After all, aren’t the food bloggers supposed to showcase their fancy creations with a long list of ingredients and many confusing steps? LOL if you are looking for fancy, this ain’t so :) Only easy recipes make their way into my kitchen because simple is how I like it!

Baked Italian Sausage Recipe

To make these baked Italian sausage links, all you need is… Italian sausage! Yep, just 1 ingredient – it’s a *GASP* one-ingredient recipe! Prep? All the prep you need is to turn on the oven and open the package of Italian sausages :) Wash dishes? Hmm… I line the baking sheet with foil or parchment paper, so there is nothing to wash.  Yes! 1 ingredient, nothing to prep and nothing to wash – that’s my kind of a recipe!

You can use any type of uncooked sausages for this recipe – sweet Italian, spicy Italian, beef and pork sausage or turkey sausage.  On these pictures, I used sweet Italian turkey sausages and they were delicious!

How To Bake Italian Sausage

Making baked Italian sausages is super easy – just preheat the oven to 400F and bake the sausage for 25 minutes.  That’s all there is to it!

For an easy side dish, you can put in some veggies alongside the sausage so they bake at the same time.  You can also put in another baking sheet with potatoes to make best ever roasted potatoes (the recipe for those roasted potatoes states 425F, but they will bake at 400F just fine too) or hasselback sweet potatoes – yum!

How Long To Bake Italian Sausage

Another amazing thing about this easy baked Italian sausage recipe is the fact that you can bake it straight from frozen.  Yes, you don’t have to defrost the Italian sausage before baking – just put the frozen sausages in the oven and add 15 minutes to the baking time. Since frozen sausages in the package are all stuck together, take them out of the oven after the first 15 minutes and separate them so they are not touching each other, then return to the oven and bake as usual.  I always have a package of frozen Italian sausages in my freezer for those busy nights when there is nothing to eat :)

    I just looked up how to do this. I’m Italian, I forgot. Other things to do with it: add purple onions, olive oil, and green pepper slices, red pepper flakes. Then slice up sausages & toss with cooked pasta. But, thanks for the refresher! ;)

    This is the first review I’ve ever done. I’ve been using this recipe for 2 years and it is THE GO TO for any sausage I make- pork turkey or chicken. You’d think I’d remember it by now but I keep coming back to it. Thanks

  4. Thank you for this recipe! I’ve used it to bake sausages for soup, to go with mashed potatoes, or for sandwiches with some marinara heated and poured over them. I’m just baking some now to go in a butternut squash soup, we’ll see how the soup part comes out but I’m confident that the sausages will be great.
