What side dishes go well with smoked sausage?

However, if you want to add another side dish to round things out, here are a few easy ideas:
Grilled Corn: Grilled corn on the cob is a classic summer side dish that pairs well with smoked sausage. The sweetness of the corn can balance out the savory flavor of the sausage.
Baked Beans: Baked beans are a classic side dish for barbecue and smoked meats. The sweetness of the beans can complement the smoky flavor of the sausage.
Coleslaw: Coleslaw is a refreshing side dish that can add some crunch and acidity to your meal. The creamy dressing can also balance out the spiciness of the sausage.
Potato Salad: A classic potato salad can be a great side dish for smoked sausage. The creaminess of the potatoes can complement the smoky flavor of the sausage, while the tangy dressing can add some acidity to the meal.
Green Salad: A simple green salad with a vinaigrette dressing can be a refreshing side dish that can balance out the richness of the sausage.
