I am totally in love with this easy sheet pan sausage dinner. It ticks all the boxes: roasted sausage and potatoes, loads of vegetables, hearty and comforting. It is easy to make and requires only a few minutes prep time, which makes this a perfect weeknight dinner recipe.
With just a few simple ingredients all the flavor here comes from fresh vegetables and spices, plus the delicious kielbasa sausage. I like to use sausage from North Country Smokehouse, which has no added sugar and simple ingredients, making this a healthy dinner I feel good about serving to my family.
Why You’ll Love this Recipe
- It’s an easy one pan dinner. (only one pan to wash!)
- It makes enough for the whole family.
- It makes great leftovers, reheats well.
- It’s gluten free (with gluten free kielbasa) and dairy free!
- Olive oil - I use olive oil for all of my cooking. If you prefer, you can use canola oil or avocado oil in place of olive oil.
- Basil, Thyme, Paprika, Oregano, Onion Powder & Garlic Powder - All of the herbs and spices provide a rich flavor profile for the dish.
- Salt & Black Pepper - Some brands of kielbasa can be quite salty, so I suggest adding some salt before cooking and possibly adding additional salt after cooking, to taste.
- Potatoes - I use red potatoes, but russett potatoes will work fine. I have also made this dish with cut new potatoes and it turned out well. The important thing is to cut the potatoes into even sized cubes, so they will cook well during the baking time.
- Carrots - If you don’t have baby carrots, cut full size carrots into pieces about 2 inches long and no more than ½ inch thick.
- Broccoli - Cut a head of broccoli into florets or buy the precut florets. I don't recommend using frozen broccoli here since it will become soggy.
- Yellow Onion - Cut the onion into good sized slices so it doesn't burn during baking.
- Minced Garlic
- Kielbasa - Not all brands of kielbasa are gluten free. Hillshire Farms brand, which is widely available, is marked as gluten free. I normally use the sausage from North Country Smokehouse because it is all natural with no added sugar.

Substitutions & Variations

- Add more vegetables - Add cubed sweet potatoes, butternut squash, cut brussel sprouts, or cauliflower for more vegetables.
- Add ½ teaspoon of red pepper flakes to make it spicier.
- Serve the dinner over rice or pasta.

STEP 1: Combine all of the herbs, spices, salt and pepper with the olive oil and mix well.

STEP 3: Spread the potatoes and carrots onto a sheet pan and bake for 20 minutes.
STEP 4: Add the cut broccoli, onions and minced garlic to the same mixing bowl. Pour the remaining spice/oil mixture over the vegetables and stir to coat.

STEP 6: Pour the broccoli and onions over the veggies and sausage and return the sheet pan to the oven. Bake 15 minutes, then flip the sausages and bake for 10 minutes more.
Is this sheet pan sausage meal gluten free?
All of the ingredients with the exception of the kielbasa are naturally gluten free. There are plenty of gluten free kielbasa options available, just make sure to read the labels. This sheet pan dinner can easily be made Whole 30 compliant by using a sugar free kielbasa as well.
Store leftover sausage sheet pan dinner in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. It makes very good leftovers as the flavors combine during storage, making it an ideal meal prep recipe. Reheat in the microwave for 2-3 minutes before serving.
Swap the potatoes for sweet potato or butternut squash.
Add peppers, zucchini, asparagus or whatever vegetables you like. They should be added with the broccoli.
No, they are going to release too much moisture when roasted. Stick to fresh vegetables for this recipe.
To be honest, this meal gets eaten very quickly at my house so I have never tried freezing it. Sometimes potatoes can get weird when they are frozen, so if you try it let me know how it turns out in the comments.
