You walk through the door and you’re bom­bard­ed with respon­si­bil­i­ties, requests and even more to do. Din­ner is the last thing you want to think about.

Sheet Pan Sausage and Roasted Veggies

  • Cook Time: 30
  • Total Time: 40 min­utes
  • Yield: 6 serv­ings 1x

Description

Fla­vor­ful and sim­ple din­ner to get a tasty meal on the table in 30 min­utes.  Roast­ing brings out the best fla­vors in all the ingredients.


Ingredients

Scale

12 lbs Beef Smoked Sausage (or your fam­i­ly’s favorite sausages)

3 lbs veg­gies of your choice, chopped and sliced (*See Notes.)

2 Table­spoons avo­ca­do oil

salt and pep­per, to taste


Instructions

  1. Slice the sausage into rounds about ½ inch thick.
  2. Chop or slice the veg­gies of your choice. (*See Notes.)
  3. Line a *sheet pan with parch­ment paper, foil or a sil­i­cone mat.
  4. Toss the sausage and chopped veg­gies onto the bak­ing sheet.
  5. Driz­zle with oil and toss (with your hands) to coat every­thing, evenly.
  6. Salt and pep­per to taste.
  7. Bake at 400° for about 30 min­utes or until pota­toes are fork-tender.
  8. Serve.

Notes

  1. I have suc­cess­ful­ly used pota­toes, sweet pota­toes, but­ter­nut squash, zuc­chi­ni, brus­sels sprouts, cab­bage, cau­li­flower, broc­coli, onions, fresh green beans, corn on the cob, aspara­gus, yel­low squash, car­rots and beets, in this recipe.  All of them are deli­cious and there are dozens of dif­fer­ent com­bi­na­tions that can be made.
  2. Pota­toes, beets and but­ter­nut squash tend to take the longest to cook.  Cut them into small­er pieces or start them 15 min­utes before every­thing else.  I just cut them into small chunks.
  3. Zuc­chi­ni, bell pep­pers and aspara­gus cook quick­ly, so I typ­i­cal­ly add them dur­ing the last 5 min­utes of cook­ing.  Toss them with a lit­tle oil and salt and pep­per before adding them to the sheet tray.
  4. Beets are scrump­tious roast­ed like this.  I put them at one side of the sheet tray, by them­selves, to pre­vent heir gor­geous col­or from bleed­ing into the oth­er veggies.

Make Ahead Potential

If you’re a great meal plan­ner and get every­thing planned for your week’s meals, then go buy the gro­ceries, and come home to prep things ahead.…I want to be you. lol I’ve done it, on occa­sion, and it’s ALWAYS amaz­ing. I need to be con­sis­tent. Any­way, if that’s the way you do things, you’re even fur­ther ahead with this meal.

Pre-chop­ping the veg­gies and sausage, (the night before or last week­end), drop­ping them in a zip-top bag with a lit­tle oil and salt and pep­per, means the only thing for you to do at 5:00 is turn on the oven, pour that bag onto a sheet pan and pop it in the oven. And you, my friend, are a rock star! Again, I aspire to be you. My life is so much eas­i­er when I am that con­sis­tent­ly organized. 

Ingredients to Use in Sheet Pan Sausage and Roasted Veggies

When mak­ing Sheet Pan Sausage and Roast­ed Veg­gies, I usu­al­ly buy a pound or two of Beef Smoked Sausage. It comes in rings over near the hot­dogs, at my mar­ket. Kiel­basa, Ital­ian Sausage, even brats would work, too. They could be beef or pork or chick­en– spicy or mild. Choose the ones that taste fab­u­lous to your fam­i­ly and then always keep one stashed in your freezer. 

On one of those hair-pulling, chaot­ic week­nights when you need some­thing fast, it’s easy to slice sausages, even frozen. If they give you trou­ble, one or two min­utes in the microwave will have you slic­ing right through them. It’s one of those items I always like to have on hand.

Switch up the veg­gies and use your favorites. Clean up what’s already in your fridge or freez­er. We have used red or yel­low pota­toes, sweet pota­toes, but­ter­nut squash, broc­coli, cau­li­flower, brus­sels sprouts, aspara­gus, fresh green beans or zuc­chi­ni. I’ve even roast­ed beets on one side of the *sheet tray. And we mix and match them to fit what we have on hand, at the time. It’s a dif­fer­ent deli­cious meal almost every time you make it. Give Sheet Pan Sausage and Roast­ed Veg­gies a try.

How to Serve Sheet Pan Sausage and Roasted Veggies

This tray full of pro­tein and deli­cious­ly roast­ed veg­eta­bles is a meal all on it’s own, but we often serve it with bis­cuits or corn­bread. Even the con­trast of a crisp, cold, green sal­ad is a deli­cious complement.
