Sausage and Peppers

For this sausage and peppers recipe, I use about 3.5 to 4-ounces of smoked sausage.

You often find 2 large smoked sausage links in packages of smoked sausage. For meal planning purposes, one package (about 16-ounces) of sausage can be used in various meals throughout the week.

If you purchase a package of sausage, you might consider using the remainder in one of these smoked sausage recipes; Shrimp and Sausage Jambalaya For One, a Bean and Sausage Chili For One, or a Broccolini With Sausage For One.

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 Chicken Chili For One or Sloppy Joes For One.

Slice and scatter the sausage on a baking sheet. I like to use a quarter size baking sheet or a half sheet pan.

Add the sliced onions and the sliced peppers to the baking sheet and drizzle olive oil over everything.

Add a pinch of kosher salt and black pepper. Mix the ingredients together and spread them out in one layer on the baking sheet.

Bake in a 400 degree F (200 degrees C) oven for 20 minutes.

  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 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.
