Sausage, green bean potato bake is a delicious comforting recipe that the whole family will enjoy!
This dish is perfect for those crazy busy weeknight dinners. With just a few minutes prep time, just toss and bake and dinner is ready. This can be a complete meal or pair it with a fresh crisp salad.
Tips for making this sausage green bean potato bake
- I like to use both red and white baby creamer potatoes. But if you only have one or the other then its no problem.
- I use smoked sausage, but chicken sausage, kielbasa, or even chorizo would also be delicious in this dish.
- It’s not absolutely necessary to brown the sausages before baking. I just like to add that little bit of caramelization to the sausages. If you want to skip that step you sure can.
Can I use fresh green beans?
Yes, you can use fresh cut green beans or even frozen. Just make sure to thaw the frozen green beans out beforehand.
