21 Best Side Dish For Sausage And Peppers
Potatoes are a perfect side dish for sausage and peppers. They are easy to make and are filling enough to provide a good balance for the meal. Potatoes can be boiled, baked or fried. If you choose to boil them, you should cook them until they are soft enough to mash with a fork. You can also add other vegetables like carrots or peas to make them more nutritious.
2. Pasta e Fagioli Soup
This delicious soup is made from pasta, beans, tomatoes and vegetables in broth. It has a thick consistency so it’s good as a main dish or served as a side dish with Italian dishes such as lasagna or spaghetti. You can also add some meatballs or sausage if you want more protein in your diet.
3. Sauteed Mushrooms and Onions
If you love mushrooms then this is the perfect side dish for sausage and peppers! Sauteed mushrooms are great because they add flavor without adding too much salt or fat – just saute them in butter or olive oil with some garlic powder added for an extra kick of flavor!
4. Jiffy Corn Casserole
This is one of my favorite side dishes because it’s so easy to make and tastes delicious! If you have any leftover corn on hand, this is a great way to use it up. You can also use canned corn if you don’t want to go through all of the trouble of cutting kernels off cobs yourself. It’s best served hot out of the oven with some butter melted over top!
5. Fried Cabbage
Cabbage is a great vegetable to have on hand because it keeps for a long time in the refrigerator, so it’s always there when you need it. Fried cabbage is one of my favorite ways to eat cabbage and this recipe is super easy to make.
6. Potatoes O’Brien
If you’re looking for a side dish with a bit of kick, then look no further than Potatoes O’Brien. This all-American side dish is made with green peppers, onions, and bacon, along with potatoes and butter. It’s a great dish to serve at breakfast or brunch, but it also pairs well with any meal or entrée that needs a little something extra.
7. Garlic Bread
This versatile side dish isn’t just for pasta dinners and sandwiches — it also complements grilled meats, chicken dishes, seafood, and more! You can even use garlic bread as a base for appetizers like bruschetta or garlic toast points.
8. Cajun Fries
Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add bell pepper, onion, and celery, and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, jalapeno, and Creole seasoning; cook for 1 minute more. Stir in chicken stock and bring to a boil; lower heat to medium-low and simmer for 5 minutes or until liquid has evaporated. Transfer mixture to a blender or food processor; puree until smooth. Return puree to pot and stir in cream cheese until melted. Simmer over low heat until hot, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper if desired (this will depend on how salty your other ingredients were). Serve as a side dish with sausage & peppers!
9. Dirty Rice
Dirty rice is a Louisiana classic that’s great as a side dish or on its own as a main course. It consists of cooked rice mixed with onion and celery, which are sautéed in oil and then seasoned with garlic, paprika, salt, pepper, and chicken broth. After the liquid has evaporated, butter is added along with parsley flakes before serving.
10. Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Dijon Mustard Sauce
Roasting the sprouts in the oven brings out their natural sweetness and caramelizes them to perfection. The sauce is made with mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, white wine vinegar, garlic, and herbs. It’s a great match for these roasted Brussels sprouts!

This colorful salad is made with thinly sliced cucumbers tossed in rice vinegar seasoned with sesame oil, soy sauce, sugar, sesame seeds, and fresh ginger root. It goes well with grilled foods or as a side dish for lunch boxes or picnics.
12. Gordon Ramsay’s Mushroom Risotto
This recipe is the perfect way to serve up a plate of comfort food. The rice is cooked with sausages, pancetta, and fresh mushrooms in a creamy sauce with white wine. The risotto is both filling and flavorful, so it’s perfect for a meal on its own or as an accompaniment to another dish.
13. Sauteed Broccolini
Broccolini is a cross between broccoli and Chinese kale, so it has a mild taste that’s perfect for pairing with spicy sausage. Sauteing the broccolini in garlic and olive oil adds even more flavor.
14. Ancient Grains Risotto
Risotto is made from short-grain arborio rice, which cooks up creamy when added to liquid. The ancient grains used in this recipe add extra texture and nutrition. If you don’t have time to make risotto from scratch, buy it at your local grocery store (look for organic brands). To serve it as a side dish, simply microwave the frozen bag until hot.
15. Parmesan Polenta
Polenta is made by cooking cornmeal into a soft porridge. It’s deliciously served alongside sausages because it soaks up any juices left behind by the meat while baking. Parmesan cheese also adds flavor and richness to this simple dish
16. Caesar Salad with Polenta Croutons
The best part about this dish is the polenta croutons. They’re made from crispy browned polenta and topped with Parmesan cheese. I promise you won’t believe how easy these are to make! The recipe calls for a small amount of freshly grated parmesan, but if you have some leftover pecorino romano, that would be delicious too.
17. Cauliflower Steaks
This is one of my favorite recipes for cauliflower because it’s so easy to prepare, and the result looks like a fancy steak dinner. You can also use this method to roast any kind of vegetable – sweet potatoes, carrots or squash come to mind (just cut them into larger pieces). I love serving these steaks with a simple dressing made from olive oil and lemon juice.
18. Grilled Zucchini
Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Cut the zucchini into 1/4-inch thick slices lengthwise, then cut the slices into 1/4-inch strips crosswise. Brush both sides of each strip with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill the zucchini in batches until just tender and charred on both sides, about 2 minutes per side (4 minutes total). Set aside until ready to serve.
19. Caramelized Onion Bread
Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and the butter; once melted, add the onions and cook until they begin to soften about 3 minutes; reduce heat slightly if necessary to avoid burning them; season with salt and pepper as needed; continue cooking until caramelized as desired, about 15 minutes more (you want some browning on the edges but not too much). When ready to serve, slice 4 pieces of baguette in half (you can toast them if you prefer), spread some goat cheese on each half piece, and top with caramelized onions and arugula leaves before serving.
20. Arancini balls
Arancini balls are common street food in Italy. They are typically stuffed with risotto and deep-fried. I’ve made them as a side dish for sausage and peppers using farro and rice.
21. Arugula Salad with Burrata
This arugula salad is topped with Burrata cheese, which is a soft mozzarella-style cheese that has a creamy center. It is absolutely delicious and so simple to prepare!
