Serves: 4 Servings
  • Chicken sausage or any sausage of your choice – 8
  • Red bell pepper – 1
  • Green bell pepper – 1
  • Yellow bell pepper – 1
  • Potato – 2, medium
  • Olive oil – 2 tbsp
  • Garlic – 6-8 cloves, miced
  • Dried oregano – ½ tsp
  • Dried thyme – ½ tsp
  • Dried parsley – ½ tsp
  • Chili flakes – ½ tsp
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  1. Preheat your oven to 200 C / 400 F and place the wire rack at the center of the oven.
  2. Wash the potatoes really well to remove any dirt as we will leave the skin on; roasted potatoes taste best with skin on. Cut them into 1-inch cubes.
  3. Brush a baking pan with little olive oil. Spread the potatoes on the baking pan in a single layer, drizzle olive oil, sprinkle some salt & pepper over them and bake them in preheated oven for 20 minutes. Since potatoes take more time to bake than peppers, I had baked them until half-way done and then added the peppers and sausages to bake.
  4. The chicken sausages I used were about 6 inches long; so, I had cut each into 2 pieces. Also cut all the bell peppers into thin long strips.
  5. Heat about a teaspoon of olive oil in a frying pan. Once the oil is hot, place the sausage into the frying pan and fry them on medium heat until they turn golden brown, about 2 minutes. Then flip them over and fry for another 2 minutes. Take them out in a plate along with the oil which was left in frying pan.
  6. Place all the chopped bell pepper slices in a large bowl and add the minced garlic to it. Drizzle 2 tablespoons of olive oil and sprinkle all the dried herbs & chili flakes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Also add the sautéed sausages (along with the flavorful oil in which the sausages were sautéed) to the same bowl with peppers and give everything a very good mix so that the dried herbs & seasonings are well-distributed.
  8. Once the potatoes are baked for 20 minutes, take the baking pan out and transfer the sausages & peppers to it. Distribute the sausage & peppers evenly in a single layer to ensure even baking.
  9. Put the baking tray back in the oven and bake them for another 30 to 40 minutes or until the sausage and peppers are cooked as per your liking; some like their peppers little crunchy, some like them soft just like how I like them. So keep checking in between.
  10. Take the baked sausage and peppers out of the oven and serve them warm along with your favorite drink. Enjoy!
