Too cold to grill? Out of propane? You can easily cook sausages or bratwurst in the oven and have dinner ready in under 20 minutes. Just add a simple side dish and family dinner is served!
Side Dish Ideas:
- I love asparagus! I roast it all the time and with it being on sale this week at Aldi, you can count that I’ll be making some.
- Baked beans. There are lots of recipes out there. There’s this one from Taste of Home. Or this one from Better Homes and Garden. Can’t go wrong!
- Simple potato salad. This classic potato salad is always a hit at our house.
Last week, I said I wanted to try making brautwurst and Italian sausages in the oven. So I did. HOLY COW! They were awesome. Almost as good as being grilled, but very winter friendly! I’ll definitely do that again! It was a little taste of summer at the end of winter.
Sausages In the Oven
Cooking sausages or brautwurst in the oven is a great alternative when a grill isn't available!
