Sausage and Potato Sheet Pan DinnerRECIPE
Published on Wednesday, February 22, 2023 by
This is one of those easy sheet pan dinners that will quickly become a family favorite.
It’s great for a Tuesday night and can easily be doubled or tripled to feed a crowd. The combinations of ingredients just work so well together, and it warms you to the core on a cold night.
If traditional sausages tend to be a dietary trigger for acid reflux or GERD, possible substitutions could include a lower-fat sausage made from chicken or turkey, though be careful to check the ingredients for additional triggers such as garlic and onion, which are common in many sausages. If you can tolerate spicy foods, you may substitute with a spicier sausage or add additional spices.
A handful of sausage options that do not contain garlic or onion:
- Aidells Chicken and Apple Smoked Sausage
- Premio Sweet Italian Sausage
- Premio Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage
- Johnsonville Beddar with Cheddar Smoked Sausage Links
I really like using all colors of bell peppers in this sheet pan meal. Not only do they add color, but they have different vitamins (all high in vitamin C) and get so sweet when roasted. The potatoes get just a little crispy when cooked with the sausage. If you want to stretch this meal to feed more people, or simply to clean out the vegetable drawer, you can add all sorts of vegetables. I’ve added carrots, broccoli, and cauliflower and it is delicious each time.
Root vegetables like beets, parsnips, and sweet potatoes also taste great with this recipe!
If you decide to try sweet potatoes, I would cut them a bit larger, as they have more water than white potatoes and soften quickly at high temperatures.
This is a favorite dish at our family parties and I hope it is a hit with your family as well!
