Who doesn’t love a good sausage? All that ground up meat and spices mixing together to create a tasty companion to any meal. Unfortunately, cooking them can be a challenge. Cooking in general can be a tricky beast. It’s hard to know what to do sometimes. Sometimes, it could seem like anyone’s guess as to what pots or pans to use or what temperature to cook at and for how long. There is so much going on. It can very quickly get overwhelming if you don’t have a ton of cooking experience. Let’s say I bought some pre-made sausages from the supermarket, how am I supposed to cook these sausages?
Well, there is no set amount of time. It can vary depending on what type of sausage you are trying to cook. It’s all about getting the internal temperature of the sausage to a safe degree. So, moving forward, a meat thermometer is a must have.
To cook them correctly, you’ll want to get the internal temperature up to 160 degrees. To do this, first put foil on a baking sheet and place the sausages on it, making sure to evenly space them out, then place the sheet in the oven. Once in the oven at 200 degrees, it will take between 35 to 45 minutes for the internal temperature to reach 160.
Italian sausages that are currently frozen can also be cooked at 200 degrees. To do this, first put foil on a baking sheet and place the sausages on it, making sure to evenly space them out, then place the sheet in the oven. Once in the oven at 200 degrees, it will take between 45 to 55 minutes for the internal temperature to reach 160.
Summer sausage cooks a little bit differently. What you’ll want to do is to place the summer sausages onto a boiler rack, making sure they are evenly spaced, then that goes into the oven. To correctly cook summer sausage, you’ll still want to get the internal temperature up to 160 degrees but it’ll take a little longer.. At 200 degrees in the oven, this will take between 3 to 5 hours. Use a meat thermometer to continuously check the sausages’ internal temperature to see when it reaches 160. If you want summer sausages that are a little dryer, you can wait until the internal temperature hits 165, that will give you your desired result.
There are many other delicious types of sausages but their traditional and best ways to be prepared are not through baking in an oven. But, be it an Italian or summer sausage, you now know how long to cook sausages in oven at 200 degrees! Now you can make these delicious sausages for you next meal! Enjoy!
