Sheet pan dinners are such a great shortcut on a busy night. Instead of fussing with different pans on the stovetop, everything gets cooked in one place in the oven. This makes doing dishes a lot easier, and the flavors come together so well when all the ingredients are roasted together.

We get Italian sausage every month in our local meat share, and there are lots of ways to use it. Sometimes we have it as a main dish or add it to a stew. This sheet pan sausage and veggies is another easy way to enjoy fresh local sausage.

Potatoes, onions, and kale are staples that we like to keep on hand, especially in the winter. They stay fresh for a while, so I can easily add them to a meal when I need one more thing on the plate.

Sheet Pan Sausage and Veggies Tips

The ingredients in this recipe have different cook times, so they get added to the pan at separate times. First add the onions and potatoes to the pan, and roast them for about 25 minutes. Then add the Italian sausage, and return the pan to the oven for 10 minutes. Finally, once all these ingredients are cooked through, you can add the kale to the pan for the final 5 minutes so it has just enough time to wilt.

Cut the potatoes into cubes about 3/4 inch thick so they don’t take too long to cook. If you cut them larger, increase the cook time before adding the sausage to the pan.

You may want to adjust the amount of salt according to how salty your sausage is. Taste the potatoes once everything is done cooking, then add a bit more salt if you think it’s needed.

For a bit of zing, you can add a tablespoon of fresh lemon juice to the finished dish before serving. Either way, this sheet pan sausage and veggies is a crowd-pleasing meal that’s so simple to make.

  1. I totally agree that the meal plans sort of make themselves based on what the farmer has provided. I’m excited to see how you prepare the surprises in your CSA box!

    1. Thank you! It’s a fun adventure and I’m glad to see how others use these great veggies too.

  2. I love the look of this – particularly as it includes sausages and seasonal veggies. I too let the farmer decide on my weekly ingredients by getting a weekly veggie box – I love to eat seasonally and it’s so interesting trying out new veggies I probably wouldn’t think of choosing myself…

    1. Thanks! I’m glad to hear that you enjoy your weekly veggie box. It’s a great way to eat.

  3. Mr. Foodie would fall all over himself trying to get to a plate of this. He loves sausage and potatoes. I think I fixed the link…if not, let me know and thanks for the heads up!

  4. Trying new flavors is so much fun. This blog has forced me to try new things and for the most part, I like everything. Great combination for a hearty meal.

    1. Thanks! I like almost everything but I haven’t found a way to enjoy turnips just yet. Hopefully I will figure them out this summer.

  5. As much as I try to become a vegetarian, it’s a meal like this one that prevents me from doing it. Looks great!

    1. I hear you! It’s bacon that gets me. We try to keep our meat consumption to a minimum, but bacon is very compelling in our house.
