This Healthy Sheet Pan Sausage and Veggie dinner does double duty! Will feed you for dinner than lunch …a dinner that keeps on giving!
Fresh brussels, sweet potatoes and peppers combined with smokey sausage, all tossed up in a simple but flavorful olive oil and garlic marinade!
Buy pre-cooked sausage for this healthy sheet pan dinner. We used a smoked version. There are a plethora of really great and healthy sausages out there these days. We love Aidells Smoked Chicken Sausage . (not a sponsor, just a great sausage!). But you could use any of your favorites, even a simple Kielbasa would do the trick. This dish is as good as the sausage you buy, so be picky.
NOTE: If using uncooked sausage links leave them whole. Poke with a fork to keep the sausages from bursting and nestle into the chopped veggies. Slice up after cooked and toss back in.
HOW TO MAKE SHEET PAN SAUSAGE AND VEGGIES:
Line a large sheet pan with foil for easy clean up. You will be so glad you did!
Chop your veggies and slice the sausage. Hey, guess what? You are almost done and we just got started…love this recipe!
Look at those colors!
You can sub white potatoes for the sweet potatoes. Add broccoli for the brussels. Carrots, zucchini, squash cubes….the possibilities are endless!
Mix up your olive oil and herbs. Pour it all over those beautiful veggies and sausage then give it a good toss.
In the oven it goes and you still have a half glass of wine left! It’s a ‘one glass of wine’ dish! (we use the wine o’clock around here. 1/2 glass is about 10 minutes. Full glass for 15-20).
While the sheet pan is doing its sheet… er, stuff. (can’t help it!). Get your side dish going. Did you know you can oven bake quinoa, rice and brown rice? Once you try this hack, you will never go back! okay, putting the chardy away…starting to rhyme.
You have dinner and guess what? You have tons of healthy sausage and veggies left over! What do do? Meal prep for lunch! A little rice, a little sausage and veggies and you are rocking’ lunch all week long!
