Sweet Potato, Brussels Sprouts and Chicken Sausage Sheet Pan Dinner


Well, after that celebration of 10 years of recipes, it's time to get started posting new ones again. We're trying to eat a bit healthier around our house as of late (it's an uphill battle, isn't it?) so I won't have many baked goods to share for awhile, but I have several amazing main meals just waiting for the spotlight.


This Sheet Pan dinner featuring chicken sausage, sweet potatoes and brussels is just one of those main meals!

I love the ease of sheet pan dinners and this one is wonderful. I'm sure that this would be more suitable in the fall, when brussels are in season and when we are eating more sweet potatoes, but sometimes the desire to try a new, fast, easy, delicious dinner trumps seasonality. I think there would be several good varieties of chicken sausage to choose from (flavor wise) when making this, but I liked Italian style. They had just enough kick to complement the herbs and spices in the veggies. And you can always make this milder by leaving out the cayenne.


Do yourself a favor and make this great (and easy! so easy!) dinner as soon as possible.


Sweet Potato, Brussels Sprouts and Chicken Sausage Sheet Pan Dinner

1 (12 oz) package Chicken Sausage
2 tsp. olive oil
1 pound Brussels sprouts, sliced in half
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1" cubes
1 large red onion, cut into quarters vertically
1 Tbsp. garlic, minced (3 cloves)
1 tsp. dry mustard powder
1 tsp. smoked paprika
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. rosemary

In a large mixing bowl, combine the prepared sprouts, onion and potatoes. Drizzle oil over, add minced garlic and toss to coat. Combine the mustard powder, paprika, brown sugar, cayenne, salt, pepper and rosemary, and then sprinkle over the vegetables and stir well so that everything is coated.

Transfer vegetables to a large sheet pan. Roast at 425 for 15 minutes. Cut each sausage link into thirds, and then add to the pan. Roast for an additional 10 minutes. Serves 4.
