Methods for Cooking Italian Sausage
- To prepare a baking sheet, heat the oven to 205 degrees C (400 degrees Fahrenheit), and line it with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
- Spread the sausages out in a single layer on the baking sheet (cherry tomatoes and peppers optional) and make sure they aren't touching.
- For 20-25 minutes, or until an instant-read thermometer registers 160°F (for pork products) or 165°F (for chicken sausages), bake on the middle rack in the oven.
- Put in a serving dish and serve hot or warm.

Tips for Baking Sausage with a Crispy Coating
The Italian sausages we bake in the oven come out perfect every time, in the opinion of my family and me. There are a couple of ways to get that "extra" crispiness on the skin.
First, while the oven is preheating, heat the baking sheet. Spread out some parchment paper on the baking sheet, and then proceed with the sausage baking procedure as directed.
The second choice is to set the broiler to a low temperature. Turn on the broiler for the last five minutes of cooking time.
Can Frozen Sausages Be Baked?
Without a doubt Make sure there aren't any contradictory instructions on the packaging by reading them carefully. In general, however, frozen sausage can be cooked straight from the freezer. Almost any type or brand of sausage will do.
Cooking time should be increased by 10 to 15 minutes when beginning with frozen sausages. Sausage links that have frozen together can be separated by rinsing them in warm water.
Should I Make Holes In The Discs?
Whether or not the casings will burst and spray sausage juices all over your oven is the subject of this discussion.
I would rather not break the shells. Flavor is lost because the juices can't stay inside the casing. The ground sausage meat is cooked thoroughly thanks to the juices contained within the casing. But that's just my opinion, and you should do whatever makes you happy.
