Easy Baked Sausage/Brats Fajitas recipe, a twist on the restaurant fajitas.

The idea for the Sausage/Brats Fajitas just popped into my head after buying Brats at Costco recently. It actually came out so much better than I’ve envisioned it. It’s super easy to make this budget-friendly FANCY meal at home!

Easy Sausage Fajitas/Brats


One of my favorite meals to order out has always been – Fajitas! I don’t know why, but it’s just so much fun assembling your meal how you like it! There are so many different condiments that come with fajitas and you can create your own flavor combo.

I usually order chicken, beef, shrimp or combo fajitas. But, I have never seen Sausage/Brats Fajitas and when we bought Kirkland Signature Brats at Costco, I’ve got the idea! It worked! Perfectly!

BTW, these are the best tasting sausages we have tried and seem to have less salt than other brands.

If you wonder what’s the difference between Sausage and BratwurstSausage is a preparation of ground meat that can be found in dried or fresh varieties and sold either in the casing as links or in bulk. Bratwurst is a specific type of fresh link sausage made with pork or veal.
 
This is the seasoning I normally use when making Fajitas

How to prepare Sausage/Brats Fajitas:

Preheat oven to 400°F.
 
Slice the bell peppers and onion into 1/4-inch strips and place them on a large baking sheet. Add the thawed bratwurst links to the baking sheet. Season everything with garlic powder, paprika and Fajita seasoning (pictured above). The amount is up to your taste.

Place the baking sheet in the oven and roast for 20 minutes. Flip brats to the other side and stir the veggies. Return the baking sheet to the oven and roast for another 20-25 minutes, or until the brats, peppers, and onions have browned.
