We’re days away from the start of another school year. With that comes after-school activities and a schedule that leaves little time for dinner prep. It’s important to me to have a dinner at night where we can sit down and reconnect as a family. But like many families, after-school activities, sports, practices and rehearsals, don’t leave much time to get dinner on the table. Can you relate?

This Sheet Pan Sausage and Peppers recipe is absolutely perfect for getting dinner on the table during busy weeknights. It comes together in a snap, and what little prep there is, can be done in steps. 

Here are the easy steps to this healthy, easy and delicious Baked Sausage & Peppers recipe:

Step 1: Prep Your Ingredients

The first ingredient I start with is the sweet potatoes. I peel with a vegetable peeler (you can also leave the skin on if you like), and slice into thin wedges the size of french fries. Toss on your sheet pan with olive oil, salt and pepper. Get the sweet potatoes in the oven as soon as it comes to temperature.

The sweet potatoes take the longest to cook, so the thinner you cut them, the quicker they will cook through.

Bake the sweet potatoes at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.

Step 2: Add the Veggies and Sausage, Bake

While the sweet potatoes pre-bake in the oven, now is the time to slice up the onion, peppers and sausage.

Feel free to use any color of pepper you like – green, red, yellow or orange. I used a red onion, but feel free to use a yellow or sweet onion.

For this sheet pan recipe, I chose turkey sausage. You can use any type of sausage that you and your family prefer – turkey, chicken, beef, pork or venison. I recommend looking for sausage that is nitrate and nitrite free. Slice the sausages (as seen in the photos), or leave in whole links.

Once the sweet potatoes bake for the initial 15 minutes, take out of the oven. Right on top of the sweet potatoes, layer on the peppers, onions and sausage.

Step 3: Bake all ingredients on the sheet pan for another 15 minutes

Bake all of the ingredients for another 15 minutes. Your peppers and onions will become tender and caramelize slightly. The sausage will bring a fantastic savory flavor to all of the sweet flavors of the potatoes and vegetables. It’s a match made in flavor heaven!

Sheet Pan Sausage and Peppers Q&A:

  • My family doesn’t like turkey sausage. Can I use something else? Answer: Yes, definitely! Feel free to use any meat of your choosing. I’ve made this recipe with chicken sausage as well as smoked German sausage (beef), which was delicious. You can leave the links whole or slice. 
  • How big of a pan do I need for this recipe? Answer: A good sized sheet pan is 12×16″ (half-sheet). I have these Nordic Ware Natural Aluminum Commercial Baker’s Half Sheet (2 Pack), (Amazon affiliate link) which are fantastic. I use them ALL THE TIME and love them!
  • I need something lower-carb option instead of sweet potatoes. What can I substitute? Answer: I would recommend cauliflower rice. This will actually eliminate a step in the recipe (no pre-baking the potatoes). Simply heat your cauliflower rice (if frozen, prepackaged) according to package directions, and serve over the rice. Season as needed. Delicious!!
