25 Leftover Sausage Recipes

Making food in large quantities at once, so that we may have speedy dinners throughout the week, is one of my favorite things to do. Creating novel and interesting uses for sausage that has been previously cooked is one of my favorite things to do.

I’m going to wager that not one of these recipes for using up leftover sausage will disappoint you because they are all so simple and tasty.

Easy Leftover Sausage Recipes

1. Easy 30-Minute Pasta Frittata with Sausage and Parmesan

This Easy Pasta Frittata may be ready in just thirty minutes and is very simple to prepare. The fact that it calls for largely items that are already in your cupboard (in addition to sausage that can be frozen) makes it an excellent choice for when you haven’t been to the grocery store in a while. Change the vegetables to whatever you have in the refrigerator, and if you have any leftover spaghetti, use that instead.

When the pan is heated, pour in the pasta that has already been cooked (it can be any sort of pasta; it does not have to be spaghetti), spread it out, and then pick it up.

2. Sausage Potato Hash With Herb Dressing

This is not your typical hash by any stretch of the imagination; it’s my take on sausage and potato hash. To begin, the sausage portion of the recipe makes use of any leftover sausages from your most recent get-together, whether it was a barbecue or a picnic. These can be found in your refrigerator or freezer.

You could use a baking sheet, however in my case I cover the pan with a metal pizza pan that is commercial size (and therefore won’t fit in my oven!). You could also use a baking sheet. In addition to that, in order to get a good seal, I place something heavy on top of the pizza pan.

3. Smoked Sausage & Cheesy Rice

This flavorful one-pan smoked sausage skillet dinner is a complete meal that only requires one skillet to prepare. In a flash, without much effort, and utterly delicious.
After adding the shredded cheese, take the dish off the heat. After the cheese has melted, it should be stirred in.

4. One Pot Leftover Sausage Pasta

One-Pot Leftover Sausage Pasta – everything is cooked in one pot, and it’s a fantastic way to use up any barbecue snags that you have left over.

Cook for eight minutes with the lid on, stirring frequently to prevent the mixture from adhering to the bottom of the pan and to ensure that the liquid is evenly distributed over the noodles. Take off the top, and mix the cheese thoroughly.

5. Spicy Sausage Corn Chowder

My recipe for spicy sausage corn chowder is certain to get your body nice and toasty. It is simple to prepare and can either satisfy a large number of people or provide ample food for leftovers.

First, add the corn 5 minutes earlier than you normally would so that it has time to defrost. Two, remove the corn from the freezer and let it to thaw by placing it in a colander and then pouring water over it.

6. Creamy Sausage & Potato Whole30 Casserole

This cheesy Whole30 casserole is the ideal dish for a quick dinner that the whole family will enjoy. It can be prepared in less than an hour, features sausage and potatoes, and is a cozy and creamy Paleo or Whole30 meal. It would work really well as meal prep, and in my opinion, the leftovers are almost even better than the original dish.

If you want a cream sauce that is thicker, or if the sauce already has too much liquid in it, add another half tablespoon of arrowroot flour and carefully whisk it in.

7. Egg, Ham, and Cheese Monkey Bread

Cheese, Egg, and Ham on a Sandwich Recipe for Monkey Bread is one that may be prepared the night before and baked in the morning. On the exterior, there are a few flecks of crispy cheese, and on the interior, there is delicious ham and eggs all nestled together inside of fluffy white bread! Everyone will have fun picking slices of bread off of this adorable monkey bread that has been baked in muffin tins.
You are welcome to use any kind of cheese that you have available to you. There are several wonderful alternatives available, including Swiss, Pepper Jack, and Colby Jack.

8. Sausage & Veg Tortilla

This is not a tortilla wrap stuffed with sausage and vegetables, although both of those things sound delicious together! You’ll have a delicious breakfast burrito if you include some fried jalapenos and eggs that have been scrambled.
This is not a frittata at all; rather, it is more like a Spanish tortilla, which is a dish made with eggs and potatoes that is similar to a frittata.

9. Hissy Fit Quiche

Hissy Fit Quiche — if you pass up the opportunity to indulge in this quiche, you will most certainly have a temper tantrum. Taking inspiration from our go-to dip for tailgating! Eggs, heavy cream, onions, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, sausage, Muenster cheese, and Velveeta cheese are included in this dish.
It is possible to assemble the quiche ahead of time and then freeze it in its unbaked state for later use.

10. Sausage And Egg Breakfast Pizzas

In this portable breakfast that works just as well for lunch and supper as it does in the morning, English muffins are dipped in beaten eggs, topped with sausage, cheese, and vegetables, and then baked until golden brown.
Bake for about 15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the muffins have a golden brown color. Immediately serve after cooking.

11.Leftover Stuffing Breakfast Casserole

Make use of any leftover sausage stuffing by preparing this mouthwatering breakfast casserole. It just requires four ingredients, yet it may serve a large number of people.
You are free to use any kind of stuffing you like, but personally, I think a breakfast made with sausage stuffing is the best option.

12. Sweet Apple Sausage and Gouda Sandwich

A large bakery roll is topped with a delicious filling that features Sweet Apple Sausage, smoked gouda, and a slaw that is sour and crunchy all at the same time.
Transfer the roll to the baking sheet that has been coated with parchment, and bake it open-faced for 7 to 10 minutes, or until the cheese has melted. After the gouda has melted, stack the slaw on top of it, and then close the roll.

13. Sausage and Scallion Egg Muffins

In the course of my series entitled “Cook Once, Meals All Week,” I contributed these sausage and scallion egg muffins to Better Connecticut. The fact that you can use any of your favorite fillings in these egg muffins is the nicest part about them.
If you want, you can use one pound of cooked and crumbled morning sausage for the sausage links in this recipe.

14. Leftover Turkey Jambalaya

Leftover turkey? Create a tasty dish with it by adding leftover turkey to jambalaya. It is loaded with a variety of spices and flavor. Bread is the perfect accompaniment for this heavy dish!
Bring the mixture up to a simmer before adding the rice and the sausage that was set aside. Cook with the lid on and the heat on low for 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally. In order to help it thicken up, I like to cook it uncovered for the last five minutes of cooking time.

15. Bisquick Sausage Balls

Are you planning to provide all of your guests the most delicious appetizers on the approaching game day? Ensure that this recipe for sausage balls made with Bisquick is included on the list. This is a very straightforward recipe. You only need three things: breakfast sausage, cheese, and Bisquick!
If the mixture is too dry, the problem may be that you’ve added an excessive amount of Bisquick. To prevent the mixture from becoming too dry, incorporate a few drops of milk here and there.

16. Broccoli, Sausage, and Cheese Calzone

At my house, we eat pizza on a somewhat consistent basis. It’s a fantastic way to use up any leftovers, and my children just adore it. However, I virtually never remember that if I have the stuff to make pizza, then I also have the ingredients to make calzones.
The leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for up to four days if they are placed in an airtight container.

These are without a doubt the most handy and delicious convenience food there has ever been: curry sausages. With this simple supper dish that only requires one pot, you can have dinner ready in just twenty minutes. It’s sure to become a quick and easy favorite among your friends and family.

If you use thicker sausages, the amount of time it takes to cook them will change; therefore, you need set aside a few more minutes to ensure that they are cooked all the way through. The barbecue sausages that have been prepared before and are being used as leftovers will only need to be warmed through rather than recooked.

22. Slow Cooker Sausage, Spinach And White Bean Soup

This dish is so satisfying, so reassuring, and can be made in the crock pot with only ten minutes of preparation time. Simple as that!

Cook, covered, on low heat for seven to eight hours, or on high heat for three to four hours. After stirring for a few minutes, add the spinach.

This simple dinner may be made in only one pot if you use smoked sausage as the secret ingredient, which adds a lot of flavor. It has the flavor of jambalaya but without the Cajun spices, and it can be made much more quickly. Everyone adores doing this!
The following types of rice will not work with the recipe as written: brown rice, paella or risotto rice, wild rice, quinoa, or any other specialty rice. I would have to calculate the appropriate amounts of liquid to rice as well as the baking periods.

24. Traditional Toad in the Hole Recipe

Recipe for the iconic British meal known as Toad in the Hole, which is produced by baking cooked sausages in a Yorkshire pudding batter until the batter is golden brown and the sausages are thoroughly risen.
