Baked Sausage, Sicilian-Style

Oct 27, 2010

Here’s a good chilly-weather recipe. It takes only minutes to prepare (plus an hour in the oven). Light a crackling fire, pour a tumbler of wine, and cozy up.

The recipe comes from Giovanna Bellia La Marca’s Sicilian Feasts, chock-full of simple home-style recipes. This one may remind you of something from Northern Italy or Bavaria, but I can vouch that baked sausage and potatoes is a very typical dish in southeast Sicily.

Sicilian Feasts by Giovanna Bellia La Marca

Ingredients (for 6-8)

2 pounds Italian hot or sweet sausage, or a combination

6 baking potatoes cut in wedges (I used fingerlings instead)

2 bell peppers (red or yellow) cut in wedges

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

sprinkle of dried oregano

salt and pepper to taste



Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Separate the sausage links. Place the sausages, potatoes, and peppers in a large baking pan. Add the olive oil, oregano, salt, and pepper, and mix well. Bake for an hour, stirring the contents of the pan twice during baking to be sure nothing sticks to the pan. Serve with a good crusty bread.
