Today I am sharing how to cook kielbasa in the oven with potatoes and vegetables and the best part, it’s all baked in the oven on on a sheet pan! Kielbasa is a family favorite that I grew up on and I remember my gram always making it for us kids. This kielbasa recipe is from a good old fashioned magazine I picked up in the grocery store checkout aisle and it came out delicious.
How to cook kielbasa in the oven
My mom loves getting recipe magazines and we tend to dismantle them with scissors cutting out our favorite recipes. I can remember my gram having several stacks of recipes she would find in the TV guide! Do you remember the tv guide? I am dating myself!
For this kielbasa recipe, I bought pre cooked kielbasa (you can use fresh kielbasa) and cut up in bite sizes, sweet potatoes, fresh zucchini and squash.
There are many frying pan kielbasa recipes out there but I think this recipe is the best way to cook kielbasa if you are looking for a healthier recipe. You can also purchase turkey or chicken kielbasa which is a more healthier alternative as well.

What temp to cook kielbasa in oven?
I cooked this kielbasa recipe at 400 degrees for a total of 45 minutes. The potatoes and vegetables cooked first for 25 minutes (or until soft) and then I added the kielbasa for another 15-20 minutes.
The kielbasa is precooked there is no need to use a meat thermometer to check the meat. The large chunks of potatoes are what take the longest to cook and that is why I cook them first before adding the kielbasa. I would suggest mixing the kielbasa and vegetable once by flipping with a spatula and adding a little extra oil oil to keep the vegetables from drying out.
Transfer the baked kielbasa, potatoes and vegetables to a large casserole dish or bowl once cooked and serve.
Or you can be lazy like us and just use a spatula and scoop onto your plate :).
There you have it, a quick and easy kielbasa recipe for dinner that is actually healthier than frying in a skillet. We also like cooking kielbasa on the stove top in a frying pan but this cooking method seemed to taste a lot lighter and less greasy.
My son actually liked learning how to cook kielbasa in the oven (he likes to cook) but prefered the frying pan version. He likes the greasy taste from the frying pan recipe! ha.
