Easy Sausage Sheet Pan Dinner
Sheet pan dinners are so much fun to make because they’re easy and you can customize them to your liking.
They are ideal for last minute and weeknight dinners especially those days when appointments ran late, or something came up that kept you from getting dinner ready. It’s sheet pan sausage and veggies to the rescue!
I used sausage, potatoes, and onions for this particular dish, but the beauty of it, though, is you can use almost any vegetables you have on hand.
Try green beans, broccoli, cauliflower, bell pepper, and corn on the cob. Since they all work really well.
The best part about sheet pan dinners is that they cook everything evenly so you don’t have to worry about overcooking or undercooking anything.
Plus, they’re practically cleanup-free since everything cooks in one pan!
Ingredients for Sheet Pan Dinners with Sausage

How to Make Sheet Pan Sausage and Veggies
Slice and rinse veggies. Scrub then cube the potatoes and carrots. Cut the onion in half, then into 1/2” slices. Rinse the kale, then cut it into 1” ribbons.
Bake the sausage and vegetables. Place the sausage and vegetables except for the kale on a large baking sheet.
Drizzle them with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper or your favorite seasoning. Then bake for 20 minutes.
After 20 minutes, sprinkle kale on top and bake again for another 5 minutes.
- Add other vegetables: Brussels sprouts, zucchini, squash, mushrooms, and cherry tomatoes all work well.
- Use different sausages: any type of pre-cooked sausage will work in this recipe. Try kielbasa, bratwurst, Italian sausage, or turkey sausage.
- Switch up the seasonings: try using Cajun seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, or smoked paprika for a little flavor kick.
- Make it vegan: use vegan sausage and veggies of your choice. You could even add some tofu for extra protein.
