Easy to prepare and cooked on one pan, this sheet pan sausage and veggies recipe is sure to be a weekday go-to when you’re craving something hearty, comforting and delicious!
Comfort food is my love language. You too? That’s why this sheet pan sausage and veggie recipe happens quite often around here.
It’s incredibly simple to whip up and requires very little hands-on time (meaning you can sit back for a little bit while the oven does most of the work).
Just like my sheet pan chicken and veggies recipe, this one is great to have in your back pocket when you’re pondering what to have for supper. And, if you’re like me, that starts about 8 am. Ha ha!
How To Make Sheet Pan Sausage and Veggies
Full details are in the recipe card below, but here are the basics:
- Line a sheet pan with parchment paper and place the sausage on there.
- In a bowl, combine bell peppers with baby potatoes, oil, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, oregano, thyme, salt, black pepper and cayenne pepper. Mix to ensure the veggies are well coated in the oil and seasonings.
- Place the veggies onto the pan in a single layer, scattered around the sausage.
- Bake, then stir the veggies and flip the sausage. Continue to bake until the sausage are cooked through and the veggies are tender.
- Dump the veggies into a serving dish and drizzle over some red wine vinegar. Place the sausage over top and serve.
Tip: If you want a sauce to serve with the sausage and veggies, honey mustard sauce (use equal parts Dijon mustard and honey) is delicious! Or, simply serve with some Dijon mustard.
There are three bell peppers used in this recipe, and I like to use three different colours simply because it looks pretty. Honestly, use whatever colour bell pepper you enjoy best or have on hand.
As for the potatoes, I used baby potatoes. If you like, you could use regular Yukon Gold or Red potatoes and simply cut into bite-sized chunks.
Type of Sausage To Use
I love Italian pork sausage here. It pairs beautifully with the peppers and potatoes. Use whatever flavour of Italian pork sausage you enjoy best. I’ve even made this recipe with a sun-dried tomato variety and it was delicious!
How To Enjoy
You could totally enjoy this sausage and veggies recipe for any meal of the day, really.
For dinner, this recipe is quite substantial all on its own. Having said that, I do love to serve it with some crusty bread on the side (smeared with butter, of course). It also pairs lovely with a simple green salad to round things out.
For breakfast, enjoy the sausage and veggies with some canned beans. Cut the cooked sausage into chunks, warm up some canned beans (a maple flavoured variety is yummy) and combine everything. Serve yourself a big bowl (and perhaps place a poached egg on top and enjoy with toast). So good on a cold day!
For lunch (or dinner), enjoy the sausage and peppers on a sub bun with melty cheese, and have the potatoes on the side. Talk about a treat (and a total classic)!

Can you confirm the cooking time, please? 30 minutes at 400 isn’t doing the job in my oven.

Hi Paul! The sausage and veggies are cooked in a 400 degree Fahrenheit oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until the sausage are cooked through and the veggies are tender. If you need a tad longer cooking time in your oven, that’s perfectly fine. The main thing is that you cook the sausage until they reach an internal temperature of 160 degrees Fahrenheit (an instant-read meat thermometer is a great tool to use). Hope you enjoy the recipe!
Dawn, this looks amazing. I’m a sucker for an easy and delicious sheet pan dinner — especially for busy weeknights. I love your combination of spices in this! 🙂 ~Valentina

We love sausage!! This looks terrific Dawn, definitely a dinner we’d all gobble up. And the sheet pan makes things so easy!
David @ Spiced
Oh, this sounds like some fantastic comfort food, Dawn! We eat a lot of Italian sausage in our house, but it’s typically in sausage-and-peppers or in a red sauce for pasta. I like this different spin on it…and sheet pan, too! Looks delicious, my friend!
Jennifer @ Seasons and Suppers
I love sheet pan dinners and I also love sausage, so this one is definitely speaking to me 🙂 So perfect to have the entire dinner done on one pan and in the oven. Doesn’t get any easier than that!
Such a delicious medley of flavours! Love pairing Italian sausages with veggies and potatoes!
