Learn how to cook sausage in the oven with this easy to follow step by step photo instructions. Great breakfast sausage “fried” in the oven. Why are you standing at the stove and making a mess?
I have been cooking bacon in the oven for several years but why not sausage? Everybody still stands at the stove and make a mess. Well, let’s put a stop to that now. Just pop it in the oven, flip once and done. That is a recipe?
I love sausage.
Notes on How to Cook Sausage in the Oven
This are a lot of variables in this recipe. You have sausage patties and links. You have different thicknesses, different ovens, and different fat content. This should also tell you that you get a lot of flexibility in how you do this. The only important thing is an internal temperature of at least 165.
Other Great Breakfast Treats
Here is a tray of sausage patties in a 375 non-convection with my baked pancake. These were done at the same time as the pancakes (25 minutes with a flip at 12 minutes), but I hit them with the broiler for 2 minutes at the end to brown up to my taste. So adjust to what you’re doing. At 400 convection, the broiler was not needed, and it was done in 18 minutes total.
Preheat oven. I’m using 400 degrees convection. Anything from 375 to 425 with or without convection should be fine but you will need to adjust time and perhaps need a couple of minutes under a broiler at the end to brown up some.
Spread sausage over a rimmed baking tray so they don’t touch. I’m using a non-stick baking pan. A spray of PAM doesn’t hurt. You could use parchment paper or non-stick foil also.
Bake for 10 minutes then flip the sausage.
Finish cooking to nice color and internal temp of at least 165.
