Pasta, Rice, and Other Carbs
From boxed macaroni and cheese to homemade cornbread, each of these delicious dishes are a great option to serve alongside any kind of sausage.
With a hearty main dish like sausage, sometimes the best compliment is something that lightens it up a bit. This is especially true in the summer, when the hot weather can make us crave cooler foods like these delicious salads!
While they don't fit nicely in any other category, we can't forget about baked beans! They're a classic cookout side and this list wouldn't be complete without them.
