This Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Sausage, and Broccoli Sheet Pan Meal is a perfect dinner idea for fall, and this is about as easy as it gets for a dinner that’s healthy and tasty.

We loved the sweet potatoes for a pop of color and flavor, but if you’re being stricter on carbs you can use more broccoli and just a tiny bit of sweet potato; or skip the sweet potatoes completely if you’d like.

We thought this combination was so delicious when we tested the recipe, and I liked it so much that a few days later I made it again just for a quick dinner for myself (something that rarely happens in a house where there is always an abundance of leftover food from recipe testing!)

If you like the sound of these ingredients I hope you’ll try this tasty sheet pan meal! I bet it’s going to be a dinner your family will ask for over and over!

What ingredients do you need for this recipe?

  • sweet potatoes
  • Olive Oil (affiliate link)
  • Balsamic Vinegar (affiliate link)
  • Garlic Powder (affiliate link)
  • fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • pre-cooked chicken, turkey, or pork sausage
  • broccoli
  • salt to taste

What kind of sausage did we use for the sheet pan meal?

This dinner idea started with the Aidell’s Bacon, Mushroom, and Swiss Sausage that I got infatuated with after I sampled it at Costco, but any pre-cooked chicken, turkey, or pork sausage will work here. It’s pretty easy to find sausage that’s low in carbs, and this one has only one carb per sausage and it’s gluten-free as well. (And no, Aidells hasn’t paid me to promote their sausage and I doubt they’ve even heard of my blog!)

Why are Sheet Pan Meals so popular?

Sheet Pan Meals are an idea that started showing up a few years ago, and I think they’re such a perfect way to make an easy dinner. And the idea of dinner that cooks on one pan is definitely one reason these are so popular!

  • 3 T olive oil
  • 1 T balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 pkg. (4 or 5 links) pre-cooked chicken, turkey, or pork sausage (about 14-16 oz. sausage)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450F/230C and spray sheet pan with non-stick spray.

  3. Whisk together the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic powder, and black pepper.

  5. Spread sweet potatoes out on a sheet pan, put pan in the oven, and start to roast for 15 minutes.
  6. Slice sausage into slices about 3/4 inch thick. (We trimmed off the ends so the sausage would have a flat end on both sides.)

  8. Cut up broccoli into same-size pieces (about the size of the other ingredients.)
  9. Put broccoli into the bowl and toss broccoli with the rest of the oil-balsamic mixture.

  12. Season with a little salt and fresh-ground black pepper and serve hot.
