If you’re wondering what to serve with your sausage casserole, you’ve come to the right place.
In this article, I list 39 of the most popular side dishes for sausage casserole.
In a rush? Here’s the short answer.
The best side dishes to serve with sausage casserole are homemade bread rolls, carrot and swede mash, and pan haggerty. You can also serve a side of cauliflower cheese, lemon butter pasta, and brown rice pilaf. For more fun options, there’s green bean salad or roasted cabbage wedges.
Ready? Let’s jump right in.
Homemade bread rolls
Homemade bread rolls are SO much better than the store-bought ones (but you can use either!).
The only must-have is a crunchy crust, so the bread still has some bite to it after you rip a chunk off and dunk it in your casserole sauce.
Psst… you could also make a sausage sandwich.
Why we love this recipe: you can get them baked from scratch in just over 2 hours.
Cauliflower cheese is a British classic that’s just as rich and hearty as your sausage casserole.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t indulge in these two goodies together!
Its creamy cheesy sauce will mix into the casserole sauce and helps mellow out its savory flavors.
Why we love this recipe: it’s unapologetically indulgent.
Jacket potatoes are my go-to for a ‘leftover lunch’, and they make for an easy dinner option too.
Spoon your sausage casserole over the top of the fluffy potato, and watch as it absorbs all the sauce.
Psst… mix some cheese into the potato to make it a little more exciting, and don’t scrimp on the butter.
Why we love this recipe: you only need two ingredients.
Lemon butter pasta
Showcase your sausages on a bed of gorgeous buttered pasta.
The silky pasta is drenched in lemon, garlic, and butter making it incredibly moreish.
The acidity from the lemon is just what you need to keep the dish bright and cut through the rich sauce.
Why we love this recipe: it only takes ten minutes to prepare so it’s ideal for busy days.
Bubble and squeak
Make use of any leftover veggies you have in your fridge and whip up an easy bubble and squeak.
What is bubble and squeak?
It’s a mix of vegetables held together with ‘glue’ (i.e mashed potatoes), you can also chuck in some bacon if you have it but it’s not needed.
Ps. the egg is totally optional.
Why we love this recipe: it’s really budget-friendly.
Green bean salad
I’m not a fan of leafy green salads with sausage casserole, but not all salads are filled with lettuce!
This green bean salad is fresh and crunchy, with some juiciness from the tomatoes and creaminess from the mozzarella.
Then it has tangy balsamic lemon basil vinaigrette to tie everything together.
Why we love this recipe: it’s a great make-ahead salad.
Carrot and swede mash
Swap your usual heavy mash for a lighter alternative with this carrot and swede mash.
This dish keeps things vegan by using olive oil to bind the mash, but you can use butter or cream if you prefer.
Psst… if you don’t have any swede, you can use butter beans or turnip as a substitute (or potatoes).
Why we love this recipe: it’s dairy free, but still nice and creamy.
Brown rice pilaf
A brown rice pilaf would be a great supporting side for a hearty sausage casserole.
It’s a step up from your average rice, because it’s cooked in stock which gives the rice way more flavor.
But it’s still pretty simple so won’t compete for attention with the casserole.
Why we love this recipe: it’s delicious and convenient to make.
Broccoli with lemon
I have a few simple side dishes that I keep up my sleeve for when I’m in a real rush – and this broccoli dish is one of them.
Psst… did you know steaming is the healthiest way to cook broccoli because it retains the most nutrients?
Why we love this recipe: you can get it on the table in 10 minutes.
Kale salad with bacon
Okay – I know I said I didn’t like leafy green salads with sausage casserole, but kale is an exception.
It has an earthy bitterness to it which I think works really well with fatty sausage meat.
The salad doesn’t lack in the texture department either, with crispy bacon bits, toasted nuts, chickpeas, and parmesan cheese.
Why we love this recipe: it’s a salad with wintery vibes.
Pan haggerty is another British classic that hails from Northumberland.
It’s a potato casserole with cheese and onions. Simple, but delicious!
Pro tip: use a mandoline slicer to get thin and even potato slices.
Why we love this recipe: you can eat the leftovers for breakfast with eggs.
Keep things interesting by serving a few corn fritters on the side of your sausage casserole.
They’re half vegetable, half bread and are perfect for mopping up any leftover sauce so nothing goes to waste.
There’s only one small caveat – you may become addicted!
And don’t forget the dollop of sour cream.
Why we love this recipe: it’s easy to make and full of flavor.
Roasted cabbage wedges
This roasted cabbage dish is an easy but fancy-looking dish made with accessible and budget-friendly ingredients.
The cabbage wedges get a nice char on the edges which adds a subtle smokiness.
Why we love this recipe: it’s something you’d expect to see in a restaurant.
