This Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Sausage, and Broccoli Sheet Pan Meal is a new 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, and I liked it so much that after we tested this recipe 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!)

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!)

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.

  • fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 pkg. (4 or 5 links) pre-cooked chicken, turkey, or pork sausage (about 14-16 oz. sausage)

Directions:

  5. Spread sweet potatoes out on a sheet pan, put pan in the oven, and start to roast for 15 minutes.

  1. Thanks for sharing! Does it reheat well?

  2. This looks so good! I love flavor combination and that it is healthy and gluten free!

  3. when you say roast, is the oven on bake or broil. sorry l am new at this.

    • No problem, glad I can help! Roast = bake.

      When you set the oven on broil, that’s cooking at very high heat from the top, usually just to brown things or cook meat quickly.

  4. I think I’m going to try subbing chunks of pumpkin for the sweet potato. I find it tastes similar when roasted in this way and it’s way lower in carb. I’ll report back if I try it.

  5. We love sheet pan dinners at our house, especially with yams, so this really caught my eye. Love that you toss with balsamic vinegar! I hadn’t thought of that. I like to sprinkle my yams with Tajin before roasting. Not carb-free but really delicious!
