Oma's Baked Sausage

Traditional German meats: Baked Sausages

Baked sausage? When I first thought about it, I really wondered if it would work. Why not? I love baked bacon. It's an easy way to make lots of bacon. So, I tried doing sausages the same way. The result? Fantastic! A no-mess easy way to make a lot or a few.

Easy German meat recipes include these sausages baked (roasted) in the oven, simply because they're so simple to make without the mess! 

Oma's Baked Sausage


  • 4 raw sausages (about 1 lb.)
  • olive oil


  • Preheat oven to 400 F. Line baking sheet with either aluminum foil or parchment paper. Alternately, you could put a rack on the baking sheet as well.
  • Place sausages on baking sheet (or rack) so that they don't touch each other.
  • Brush with olive oil (to aid in browning)
  • Bake for about 20 - 25 minutes or until meat thermometer reads an internal temperature of 160 F. If the sausages are really thick, this may take up to 45 minutes. Turn sausages at least once during baking.
  • Serve with mustard and buns, sauerkraut or Easy Potato Salad.

Easy Sausage Dinner

In the picture above, I've served these sausages with oven-roasted broccoli and roast potatoes. You get the picture?

  • Oven set for 400 F.
  • Potatoes go in first,
  • then the sausages go in 15 minutes later,
  • then the broccoli goes in 10 minutes later.

An easy dinner.

In Germany, Bratwurst is a generic name for sausages that are either fried or grilled. Well, doing them in the oven produces a similar result with the only real difference being that the grill marks are missing. 


Some of the interesting names are:

  • "Bierwurst" (beer sausage)
  • "Blutwurst", (blood sausage)
  • "Fleischwurst" (meat sausage)
  • "Blaue Zipfel" (blue tip)
  • "Teewurst" (tea sausage)
  • "Speckwurst" (bacon sausage)
