What is a Sheet Pan Dinner?
It’s one of the easiest, fool-proof ways to put a deliciously roasted dinner on the table – all on one large sheet pan. It saves time, requires no special pots or pan and makes clean up a breeze.
There’s a simple formula for making tasty sheet pan dinners – choose your protein, add vegetables then choose your seasonings or sauce. Roast at high heat setting until the meat and vegetables are cooked thru and golden brown. It’s absolutely recommended that all meat is checked to make sure it’s reached the proper temperature by using an instant read thermometer.
Ingredients Needed For Sheet Pan Smoked Sausage and Mini Peppers
- Smoked Sausage – we used a rope of skinless smoked sausage (fully cooked in a package).
- Mini Bell Peppers – a variety of red, yellow and orange mini peppers for this recipe! Mini Peppers have tender stems and almost no seeds, so cleaning them for cooking is a breeze.
- Red Onion – one large red onion for sweet flavor!
- Olive Oil
- Dijon Mustard – base for the honey mustard sauce
- Mayonnaise – for super creamy dipping sauce
- Honey – adds sweetness and the honey compliments the flavor of the mustard
- Vinegar – for extra tang.
💡TIP – you can never have enough smoked sausage for dipping, so we added another rope of the sausage to the pan…for sheer indulgence!
How To Make the Best Sheet Pan Smoked Sausage and Peppers
This recipe is totally quick and simple by roasting the sausage and vegetables all on one sheet pan! Don’t forget the dipping sauce:)
- First, preheat the oven to 400F/200C.
- Lightly oil your sheet pan with olive oil and spread the vegetables out in a single layer. Drizzle olive oil over the vegetables and toss to coat. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- Finally, nestle the smoked sausage pieces among the veggies and pop the pan in the oven for 25 minutes until the sausage is crisp and the vegetables are tender and starting to brown. Flip the sausage and vegetables at the halfway cooking point.
- While the sausage and veggies are roasting, in a small bowl mix the honey mustard sauce ingredients. Set aside.
- At the end of the roasting time, remove pan from oven and let cool slightly. Place the dipping sauce container right on the sheet pan to serve.
