Sausage & Sweet Potato Sheet Pan Dinner

Sausage & Sweet Potato Sheet Pan Dinner has all the flavors of fall, all in one easy sheet pan recipe!

This week’s cooking theme is, of course, easy dinners for a busy holiday week, and nothing fits the bill here better than an all-in-one sheet pan dinner! So, here’s my latest experiment along the easy weeknight dinners line: Sausage & Sweet Potato Sheet Pan Dinner. (This recipe is actually doubly thematic this week, because it’s not only easy, it also incorporates both harvest vegetables and savory Thanksgiving flavors.)

All you need to make your own sausage & sweet potato sheet pan dinner is a 14 oz smoked sausage or Polska kielbasa, plus a few veggies. Just chop and toss these together with olive oil & spices, and then roast everything together on one sheet pan until done. You can’t get much easier than that, and this particular easy sheet pan dinner takes just 45 minutes from start to finish.

1/2 tsp sage
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp Italian seasoning
Black pepper, to taste

Arrange sausage and vegetables in a single layer on your prepared baking sheet (it’s OK if they’re a little crowded; they’ll shrink down). Roast at 425 degrees for 30 minutes, stirring halfway through, or until sweet potatoes are softened and everything else is nicely roasted.

Harvest Time Comfort Food

I forgot to grab kielbasa. I have chorizo and linguica on hand. Can I substitute one of those for the kielbasa?

I'd go with the linguica, but honestly haven't tried with an alternative sausage. If you do, let us know how it turns out! :)

Im making this for dinner tonight. Smells fabulous. Switched out broccoli and mushrooms for Apple and bell pepper. Also added a little maple syrup and brown butter to coat the veg. Tastes delicious. Took a bite to see if done yet. Will make again.

This is a family favorite!!! The 11yo boy and the 1yo girl both love it! Thanks so much for sharing!

Hi Rachel!

I'm wondering, is the sausage in this recipe pre-cooked like other pre-packaged sausage products often are? So roasting it would be essentially "crisping it up"?

Thanks!

This recipe is one of our favorites! We usually use the raw brats or sausage and par-boil, slice, and then continue as usual, if you don't have the pre-cooked sausage.

Yes -- use the pre-cooked smoked dinner sausage or Polska kielbasa. :)
