This Sheet Pan Polish Sausage Sandwich Recipe comes together in minutes and the oven does almost all of the work! Smothered in roasted onions and peppers that cook along side of the Polish kielbasa, you won’t believe how easy and delicious this sheet pan supper really is!
The sheet pan method makes this easy, but it’s the sweet and spicy glaze that creates something AMAZING! A simple tomato based sauce is tossed on the colored bell peppers and slices of onion before they are placed on a baking sheet to roast along side of Polish sausage aka kielbasa. Eat the sausages and peppers by themselves or assemble on your favorite hoagie style bun for a sandwich fit for a quick supper, game day, or even company.
My family is a big fan of supper-style sandwiches, like the Bomb Italian Sausage Sandwich. I love that they are time efficient, kid friendly, and serve with a salad or another veggie side, and you have all of the bases covered.
Sheet Pan Polish Sausage Sandwiches are quick and easy to prepare.
- Slice colored peppers and onions.
- Whisk together the glaze made from tomato paste, vinegar, sugar, and spices.
- Toss the peppers and onions in the glaze.
- Spread the sausage pieces, and glaze covered onions and peppers on a baking sheet to roast.
- Assemble in your favorite bun or hoagie!
How to make Sheet Pan Polish Sausage Sandwiches with Onions and Peppers
Begin by slicing colored bell peppers, or the peppers of your choice, into 1/4″ wide strips. Do the same with a large onion.
Cut the sausage into bun length pieces. That is usually four in a standard size package of Polish kielbasa.
What’s the difference between smoked sausage, Polish sausage, and kielbasa?
Kielbasa is actually the Polish word for sausage. So, Polish sausage and kielbasa usually refer to the same thing. Polish sausage is either not smoked or only lightly smoked. Smoked sausage is cooked and then smoked, sometimes with artificial smoke flavor added to enhance it. Here is a pretty good article that talks about more in depth.
Either of these sausages, smoked or Polish kielbasa, works very well in this preparation, so choose the one you like better.
To make the glaze, whisk together olive oil, tomato paste, red wine vinegar, sugar, sriracha, salt, and garlic in a medium sized mixing bowl.
Toss the sliced peppers and onions in the glaze. Line a large baking sheet with foil and spray with non-stick spray.
Evenly spread out the sausage pieces and glaze covered peppers and onions on the baking sheet.
Roast in a 400 degree oven for 30 minutes. Serve in your favorite hot dog, bratwurst, or hoagie style bun.
These Sheet Pan Polish Sausage Sandwiches are easy to double for a crowd.
If you do, make sure to use a second sheet pan so that the sausages and veggies caramelize and brown.
Over-crowding on the baking sheet can make them steam as opposed to browning.

This recipe was WONDERFUL. I’m shocked there weren’t reviews before mine. Full disclosure, I substituted vegetable oil for olive oil (did not know I was out of OO until I started). Here are the full details of how I followed the recipe: I used 1 red bell pepper, 1 green bell pepper, and 3 small onions (I LOVE onions). I also toasted the buns in the oven on broil for structural integrity, and it was GREAT. SO easy,
The only thing is that the polish sausage was kind of thick for a hot dog bun. Next time I might experiment with slicing the sausage into medallions and putting everything on a hamburger bun.
So cost effective, and so delicious. I will be using this recipe a lot.
That brought a smile to my face. I’m so happy you enjoyed it. It’s a favorite of mine as well.
Hey Ms. Jennifer,
I noticed that your last name was Grissom. That’s the same as mine. Just wondering, anyone in your tribe from East Texas? I keep thinking back to when we got our first telephone in Dallas. The only other “Grissom besides us was my Dad’s brother. Long shot, just wondering. Can’t wait to try the sandwich.
I don’t have any family in that area to my knowledge. Can’t wait to hear your feedback on the sandwich.
Jennifer, you are truly the Goddess of food!!! This cook looks delicious. I am going to try to adapt this to a 22″ Weber kettle, perhaps with added mesquite or hickory!!!
You are the sweetest! Here is the grilled version. I love it that way.
