Ingredient Notes

See recipe box below for ingredient amounts and full recipe instructions.

  • Smoked sausage: Kielbasa, spicy andouille, bratwurst, or turkey sausage are all great sausage options to use.
  • Vegetables: I used red pepper and sliced onions but feel free to use other vegetables instead. You might like to use asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, or summer squash.
  • Olive oil: I use extra virgin olive oil in this sheet pan recipe as well as in every other recipe on One Dish Kitchen that calls for olive oil. Extra virgin olive oil is the least processed form of olive oil. It is an unrefined oil and the highest-quality olive oil you can buy. Because of the way extra virgin olive oil is made, it retains more true olive taste. It also contains more of the vitamins and minerals found in olives. It's my favorite type of olive oil to use but you may use a lighter olive oil instead.
  • Salt and black pepper: I use a small amount to flavor the vegetables.

How To Make This Recipe

  1. Slice and scatter the sausage on a baking sheet. I like to use a quarter size baking sheet or a half sheet pan.
  2. Add the sliced onions and the sliced peppers to the baking sheet and drizzle olive oil over everything.
  3. Add a pinch of kosher salt and black pepper. Mix the ingredients together and spread them out in one layer on the baking sheet.
  4. Bake in a 400 degree F (200 degrees C) oven for 20 minutes.

Expert Tips

  • You can use just about any type of smoked sausage in this sheet pan recipe. My favorites to use are; Kielbasa, Andouille, Bratwurst, turkey sausage, chicken sausage, and Italian sausage.
  • I also use about 1/4 of an onion, which is roughly 3-ounces and one medium red-pepper. You could also use a half of one red pepper and a half of one yellow pepper too. If you want to use both peppers in this recipe, save the remainder of the peppers to slice and add to salads or to make Pasta with Roasted Vegetables or Chicken Fajitas.

  1. I loved this recipe. but for no good reason, it burnt a little. keep a close eye on it…15 minutes would have been a good time for me to check the sheetpan….

  2. Looking at TV when they said u should try this book.cooking for one. I have been looking for something like this for awhile. Not everyone have someone to cook for. I would love to see a box meals for one. The they send everything for a month.

  3. 5 stars
    I make this in a frying pan on top of the stove with a drizzle of sesame oil and a tablespoon of soy sauce. Then I serve it over steamed cauliflower rice. Very fast and easy either way.
