Sheet-Pan Sausage and Vegetables

Simple prep, easy clean-up – is there anything more appealing on a weeknight than a sheet-pan supper? This one combines hearty sausages with caramelized Brussels sprouts and carrots. As the sausages roast, their juices mingle with the vegetables and add wonderful flavor to the whole dish. Feel free to use any fresh sausage that you like, such as Italian, chorizo, or bratwurst. The Brussels sprouts and carrots can be swapped out for baby potatoes, sweet potatoes, cauliflower, broccoli, or even grapes. Serve this easy meal with creamy polenta or Parmesan smashed potatoes for an easy and satisfying meal.

“Great recipe! Super easy to improvise with different vegetables, sausages and even spices.”

  • Jenn, I have used your sausage and peppers recipe for some time, but I see that it’s now gone! Might I ask for the recipe again and this time I’ll save it! We love your recipes and I really love this one! Thanks, Jan

    • Hi Jan, I’ve never had them on the site, so you must’ve seen them in my second cookbook — you can find the recipe on page 160 (and so glad you like the recipes)! 🙂

  • Excellent! Used carrots, broc, whole mushrooms, red onion, red pepper. Add Zuchinni at last 10 min. Sliced sausage and tossed all together to serve so sausage juice is all over veg. Sooo many recipes of hers are winners!!!

  • This Sheet Pan Recipe is so easy to put together as I usually have all the ingredients on hand. It’s my go-to recipe when I’m short on time. I do double the onions at my husbands request…..this is probably his favorite Chef Jenn’s recipe! Thanks for another Yummy Recipe!

  • My family loves this recipe and although I initially did it several times in the oven, as you instruct, I’ve begun doing it in my Ninja Foodi Double Air Fryer (using both baskets) for about 30 minutes. Your recipe comes out great in this manner and keeps my kitchen cool during the hot summer months!
    Thanks for another great recipe!

  • I always use this recipe for my family and it never fails. I have to cook 40 sausages for an outreach project. Can I use this method without the vegetables and just bake the sausages at 425 degrees for 25 minutes?
    Kind regards,

    • Sure, Franca, that should be fine, but it may take a couple of sheet pans (or a couple of rounds in the oven) as you just want to make sure you don’t crowd the sausage too much. That will ensure that they brown instead of steam. (And glad you like this!)

  • Easy to prep, simple to cook, and delicious! I made this with fresh turkey sausages, brussels sprouts, carrots, and cauliflower. I let it cook for 28 minutes and it was perfect. I will be making this again. My husband and I both wished we had more vegetables, because they were really tasty, and they do lose a lot of volume during the roasting process. Next time I will probably increase the amount of vegetables and divide the lot between two sheet pans so we still get that nice caramelization.

  • Wow! This had SO much more flavour then I anticipated!
    I’m okay with sausages and have usually had them with mashed potatoes … but it will be sheet pan forever more! Quick cleanup, everything done on the sheetpan and I added a sweet potato. Forgot the thyme but I sure didn’t miss it.

  • Very good, solid recipe for a quick weeknight dinner. Cooked it much longer than 25 – 30 minutes to get the sausage nice and brown, but it was very tasty. Love your tested and perfected recipes!

  • Is it ok to use parchment paper
    Looks great

    • Sure, Viv, that will work. Enjoy!

  • This was a quick, easy, tasty meal – forgot the onion…ugh but will definitely make again. Thanks again for another great recipe – love your ideas!

  • Made this Last night and turned out FANTASTIC !!! So quick and easy !!

    Just ordered your new cookbook. Can’t wait to receive it !!

  • This easy recipe was amazing! I used a homemade apple sage sausage and butternut squash instead of carrots., used fresh sage instead of oregano. Delicious!! Love how you interchange different combinations of sausages and vegetables!

  • Its so easy and delicious

    • I’m making this tonight! I’m using an Apple sage sausage my butcher makes. Using sweet potatoes instead of carrots along with Brussels sprouts, red onion and fresh sage. I’m looking forward to it! Thanks Jenn!

  • Made this two nights ago and added large diced potatoes to it! This is a keeper, easy, delicious and healthy!! Husband and son loved it as well as I did!

  • I made this last night and it worked wonderfully. I used sweet Italian chicken sausage, brussels sprouts and butternut squash.

  • Another 5*. Quick, easy, and so tasty. I followed the substitution option and used large broccoli florets, chicken andouille, and red potatoes with the onions and carrots (my market was out of B’sprouts). These are pantry items that I always have in stock. It took <10 min to prep and 25 min to cook with no stirring. Crazy Easy! Thanks for another great recipe.

  • Wow! I can’t believe how flavorful it came out. I used tiny potatoes instead of Brussels sprouts and red and green bell peppers instead of carrots. I also added four cloves of slivered garlic. I can’t wait to try the original recipe come Fall!

  • Could not be simpler. Perfect recipe for a weeknight. Delicious, satisfying and healthy. Makes the house smell marvelous.

  • I loved the simplicity of this dish – thanks again, Jenn!

  • This was terrific. I used lamb sausage, Italian sausage, and…mahi mahi! Great for company, as I prepped it early in the day, refrigerated the two sheet pans and then easily baked it all. As my mother used to say, it was a lot of “potchkee” (prep work), but worth it!

  • We’ve made the original recipe several times, as well as with red onion, broccoli and sweet potato. It’s amazing how delicious the meal is with such simple ingredients, especially the Brussels sprouts!

  • Quickest, easiest, and most satisfying weeknight dinner out there. Love Jenn and all her recipes. I use them most nights of the week!!

  • K, this was fantastic, better than I ever expected. I added sweet potatoes but they didn’t stick to the foil. I also added 1 tsp onion powder and 1 tsp red pepper flakes because we like spicy things. Man, what a great recipe to use up veggies in the fridge and it’s so delicious and clean up is a breeze!! Thank you, Jen!

  • Awesome. I’ve tried sheet pan dinners before but this one had the perfect flavor combo. I added a handful of whole garlic cloves to the veggies & pan fried some gnocchi in butter to crisp and serve along with it. Topped with Parmesan and everyone loved it!
    Thank you!

  • This was so easy & delicious. We love Italian sausage and need to get more vegetables in our diet. The mix of Brussels, carrots & onions was a perfect combination. We’re now roasting them more than ever before. Easy clean up too. Thanks for another great meal idea.

  • I made this recipe about a month ago. It was fantastic, but I did have a problem in that I used both mild and spicy sasuage on the same tray.

    My wife does not like spicy so it was not her favorite, but it was mine.

  • This is so easy but oh so delicious! This was added to my regular rotation and while I love the sausages with Brussels sprouts & carrots, the dish is equally good with whatever veggies you have on hand. Add a quick cleanup and you have a winner! Thanks Jenn!

  • Perfect recipe for my family because my son is allergic to poultry and beef (and a ton of other things). Used pork sausage and we could all eat it. It will definitely be in high rotation in my house!

  • Love this recipe!! It’s quickly become a staple in my house. I’ve made this now a few times interchanging vegetables or using chicken sausage instead of pork. Easy cleanup and a great way to use whichever vegetables I need to clear out from the fridge.

  • Such an easy, yummy dinner! We followed the recipe but added some cauliflower and loved how the everything caramelized with the Italian sausage flavor. And minimal cleanup after meant more time to relax! Thank you, Jenn!

  • This is a tasty and quick meal that was well received by my family. Easy, as well, to modify depending on which vegetables are lurking in the fridge!

  • I’ve made this recipe a couple of times and it never disappoints. It is tasty and so very easy. You can toss it together quickly and the clean up is swift. Perfect for a week night dinner when time is short and you want something delicious to eat. With all the new and interesting sausages out there you can mix it up along with different vegetables.

  • I’ve made this about three times now and it is a delicious meal, and it’s idiot proof. You are right about potatoes sticking, and even though I didn’t use foil they wanted to stick to the pan, so I did flip them. In fact I find I have to rotate everything around on the pan during roasting because the stuff nearest the edge seems to cook way faster than the stuff in the middle, also I turn the sausages so that they brown evenly. I know it says for 4 people but I find that my daughter and I finish 90% of whats on the pan. I guess that’s a recommendation, right?

  • This is very similar to another recipe I use that just has carrots and potatoes. This is very tasty, and it’s hard to beat roasted Brussels sprouts. It’s a great Sunday dinner! Warm, comfort food at its finest!

  • Great easy meal for a busy day and night! I used baby carrots and pre-cut broccoli. It was prepped and in the oven in less than 10 minutes. Added a salad to make a complete meal in a matter of minutes. Tasted very good and loved the crispiness of the sausage.

  • Made this last week using fully cooked spicy smoked Andouille sausage. Began by roasting just the vegetables for the first ten minutes, then added the sausage for the final 15 minutes. Easy, fast prep and clean up, and delicious both hot and for lunchtime leftovers. I can always depend on this site for satisfying meals using real ingredients. Thank you!

  • This recipe is a great method for using up that stuff in the fridge that really needs to get cooked before it is too late. I often have to sub in already cooked sausages because that is what is more available to me and I just add them towards the end of the vegetables cooking to heat them through and get a bit of browning. I have found that when I sub in halved or chopped potatoes, they are easier to get off the pan if I do not use the foil. They stick worse to the foil than to the pan! That may also be a tip that Jenn mentions in a different recipe and it thankfully stayed in my head. Super easy, family-friendly weeknight meal. Easy to prep ahead if needed.

  • Loved this recipe. My husband does not like brussel sprouts so I added potatoes instead. It is so simple and easy clean- up!!

  • Thank you for this delicious and oh so easy to prepare as well as easy cleanup recipe. I have made it on several occasions and with various vegetables and the results never disappoint. My family has a new favorite! It’s such a pleasure to serve and reap all the rewards in compliments.

  • Easy is right! I combined all the veggies in a bowl – but that’s for me to keep a light hand on the oil and a thorough coating – and I like the sear of the pan heat so no foil. The light char on the ingredients plus the juices from the meat and the oil combine nicely to give the finished product its own little umami. Already new combinations have been used with the sausage to use up veggies, try favorite spice combinations — but always quick, easy, and tasty. This is a keeper and in the weekly rotation!

  • So simple, yet so delicious! I am actually making this quite often in so many different ways. Just by changing a few veggies or using a different sausage it becomes a whole different dish. Great!

  • I made this recipe for an outdoor “Octoberfest” party-it was perfect. I used the recommended ingredients and it was easy, simple and tasty. Thanks for another good recipe, Jenn!

  • I’ve made this recipe several time using different sausages, vegetables, and this is one of the easiest dishes to make. Perfect if you’re short on time, plus cleanup is a breeze! I’ve also made Jenn’s Sheet Pan Garlic Butter Shrimp, just as easy and absolutely delicious!

  • I love this recipe! Super easy and so tasty! Perfect combination of all the flavors. Amazing to do at night after a long day, since it doesn’t take that much effort or time. Very much recommended!

  • Definitely a go to recipe when you’re short on time yet want a great meal for your whole family!

    • I have tried so many of your recipes and enjoyed them all and it was so nice to find an easy dinner recipe for a rainy night. It was fantastic as usual and I love the ease of it. Thanks Jenn for another keeper! I substituted cauliflower for the Brussels as that was what was in the fridge and added some mushrooms. So yummy! Looking forward to the new cookbook! Cheers

  • This is seriously one of the easiest – most flexible and adaptable – and delicious recipes I’ve tried from Jenn. I’ve shared it with all my adult kids and it has made it into their dinner rotations with enthusiasm. Last week the only sausage I found in my freezer were little chicken maple things that none of us liked for breakfast – but with the vegetables and thyme (key ingredient) they were spectacular. Cannot recommend highly enough because its just so easy and perfect and no-fail. Speedy to put together and perfect left over. Thank you Jenn!!!

    • Delicious and so easy! A great low carb meal.

  • Delicious. Easy to make and you can add whatever veggies you have. I’ve made this recipe several times and enjoy it every time. Quick and easy clean up

  • Easy and tasty weekday meal. Love that I can add additional veggies or different sausages to switch it up.

  • 10/10 recommend. You cant find an easier dinner to make. I’ve also changed this up with a spicy chicken sausage for dietary reasons. I love added spice, so I tossed in a few crushed red peppers. Dont worry if you get a slight char, it will still be amazing.

  • I love this recipe! It has become a regular for my family because it’s easy and versatile. I can mix it up with a different sausage and veggies.
