This sheet pan meal with smoked sausage, peppers, onions and potatoes is an easy way to make dinner for the family.
My husband loves Kielbasa and we all enjoy roasted vegetables, so this is a great family meal idea that’s made on one easy baking sheet in 30 minutes!
Sheet Pan Smoked Sausage Peppers, Onions and Potatoes
Each bite of Kielbasa or smoked sausage has a smoky and fulfilling flavor. Slices of red, yellow and orange bell peppers make the meal beautiful and add a sweetness to each bite. Tender onions have a slight crunch and potatoes help you feel satisfied while packing in more nutrients.
Whenever we can get a whole meal with protein, vegetables and a starch to fit on one baking sheet we are happy! This is one of our family’s super easy recipes that we like to make on busy weeknights when everyone is on the go.
We have a similar Kielbasa, Peppers, Onions and Potatoes Skillet and Sausage and Potatoes Skillet but I like how using the oven feels a little more hands off. I don’t think you spend as much time watching a sheet pan as you do a skillet meal.
We love the classic combination of sausage, peppers and onions so much we also have an air fryer version and an Instant Pot version.
Sheet Pan Smoked Sausage and Veggies
The reason my family loves making sheet pan meals is that they are easy and taste great! No one wants to waste time in the kitchen and frankly, we can’t afford to eat out every night, so sheet pan meals fit our lifestyle very well.
Once the vegetables have been washed and cut this meal only takes ten minutes to prepare and 30 minutes to roast. This could be a complete meal, but we like to add rice and a salad.
There are so many variations of ingredients that work well. We like to use whatever veggies we have on hand like zucchini, mushrooms and broccoli.
Leftovers reheat well in our Air Fryer Toaster Oven and can be used on a Turkey Wrap or made into a smoked sausage wrap for lunch
What is a sheet pan meal?
A sheet pan meal consists of ingredients that all fit on one baking sheet and take the same amount of time to bake or roast.
Sheet pan meals are popular because they often only require one large baking sheet or sheet pan. This minimizes the amount of dishes and time spent cleaning up.
When colorful vegetables are used the presentation is beautiful. Serving a sheet pan meal is easy because a turner can be added to the baking sheet and set in the middle of the table so everyone can easily serve themselves.
Sheet pan meals are also a great way to use up any extra meat, vegetables or potatoes that you may have in the refrigerator.
Another favorite sheet pan meal, especially for New Years is our Tender Country Ribs and Sauerkraut!
Tips and Tricks
- I prefer a bottle of spray olive oil as it is easier to use a small amount of oil compared to using bulk oil
- Using an oven roast setting works well, but this is also very similar to a convection oven setting
- Frozen hash browns can be used or fresh potatoes can be cut into small cubes; potatoes must be par-cooked alone on the sheet before adding vegetables
- Make sure vegetables, potatoes and sausage are stacked in an even, single layer on the baking sheet to ensure even cooking
How to Make Sheet Pan Smoked Sausage, Peppers, Onions and Potatoes
Preheat oven to 400°F and line a large baking sheet or sheet pan with foil for easy clean up.
Lightly coat the potatoes with oil, salt, pepper and granulated garlic.
Cubes of potato or hashbrowns need to go in the oven for about ten minutes to partially cook before the other veggies begin baking. Roast or bake for 10 minutes while prepping other vegetables.
Pile vegetables in the middle of the baking sheet. Either spray veggies with oil or add a couple tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and toss the pile of vegetables to ensure light coating.
Spread out the vegetables on the pan and sprinkle granulated garlic, salt and pepper over top. Roast or convection bake the vegetables in the oven for about 20 minutes.
Push the vegetables and potatoes together a little bit to create a space to add the smoked sausage coins to the baking sheet. Return to the oven until the sausage is warm or slightly browned and the vegetables are cooked to the desired doneness.
Serve warm and enjoy!

I made this and it turned out great! Made it in an air fryer, adjusted for time and temp. Then added a simple mustard vinegrette, sent it over the top!

So glad to hear this! Thanks so much for sharing!
can you refreeze the leftovers
Jennifer @ Plowing Through Life
Hey There! We don’t typically have leftovers :)….but I imagine they would freeze just fine. Hope you enjoy the recipe!
Didn’t have potatoes, so I skipped that step and started with the veggies, then added the turkey sausage “coins” at the end. Served over rice and with warmed pitas. Delicious!! Thank you for this quick dinner recipe
Cauliflower instead of potatoes…?
