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.

Ingredients

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into medium-sized cubes
  • 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.

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

    50 Comments on “Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Sausage, and Broccoli Sheet Pan Meal”

  1. Excellent recipe! I added a little Italian seasoning in with the olive oil mix- because why not- it was sooo good! The timing on everything was spot on and every component came out perfect. We loved it. 

  2. I absolutely love this recipe! It’s flavorful and easy to make. My fiancé is not a huge fan of sweet potatoes so I added some honey gold baby potatoes for him and kept the sweet potatoes to myself. I use feta and spinach chicken sausage and it’s amazing with all the flavors. 🙂 Thank you for this quick, healthy and delicious recipe! 

  3. Can you use sweet apple chicken sausage with this recipe or is that a weird flavor to go with the rest of flavors?

  4. This was yummy and very easy. It felt healthy, but filling too!

    I think your website is going to one of my new go-to’s for weeknight meals. Thanks for sharing your recipes!

  5. This sounds really good! How would you adjust the recipe if using sausages that aren’t pre-cooked?

    • I’d microwave the sausage for a few minutes, just until they are firm enough to cut up. And I’d also probably add them to the sheet pan a few minutes earlier. Hard to say exactly how much longer cooking time they would need without trying it, but for sure they would need a bit more.

  6. Super good. Instead of sausage, I used a pound of cut chicken breast seasoned with kosher salt and pepper. 

  7. This recipe was SO GOOD. I made it for my husband and I for dinner and it was the perfect amount of food. It was so filling! I added a bit more balsamic vinegar and oil to be broccoli before cooking it and we liked the extra flavor. Such a flavorful and delicious dinner! I will definitely be making this again! 

  8. I’m not a fan of saugage, is there anything else I could substitute? Or will it taste just as good without meat?

    • You could use any kind of meat that can cook in a sheet pan mea, but you might have to adjust the cooking time since I only tested it with sausage. I do think this would also be delicious without the meat.

  9. Admittedly we are not eating “carb-conscious”, but this was disgusting. There was zero flavor even after I quadrupled the “sauce” recipe. We will never make this again and not visit this website again. Look elsewhere if you want healthy, flavorful recipes. 

    • Wow, such a rude comment, on a recipe where YOU DIDN’T FOLLOW THE RECIPE. A lot of the flavor in this is in the caramelization and browning of the sweet potatoes and browning of the other ingredients when they roast. With the amount of liquid/oil you used the ingredients would steam in the oven and not develop that flavor.

      This recipe has been a huge hit with lots of good comments and reviews here and literally hundreds of people who have commented how good it was on Pinterest. There are comments that say, “Would make again.”

      Why the need to be so rude? If the recipe or my site doesn’t appeal to you, there are endless options out there.

    • you must have missed the last line in the recipe because if you had seasoned with salt and pepper to taste, it definitely would not have been “tasteless”, unless you have no taste buds. Next time, learn how to read recipe first before being rude 

  10. Can I use russet potatoes? If so, how long? 

    • Yes, you could certainly use that type of potato. I haven’t tried it that way and don’t cook potatoes much, but I bet Google can tell you if there is a difference in the cooking time for russet potatoes vs. sweet potatoes. Hope you enjoy!

  11. I don’t have a pan big enough to do everything at once, so I’m doing each ingredient separate. Every time I do it like that, the sweet potatoes are almost burning and setting off my fire alarm, but they’re not roasted thoroughly. This time I set the temp at 400 degrees, and my smoke detector still went off. What should I do?

    • There is no way for me to know for sure what you’re doing, but literally hundreds of people have commented on this recipe on Pinterest, and no one has mentioned this happening. There are some things I’d check. Are you sure your oven tempeature is okay? Some ovens cook much hotter than what the temperature says. Some brands of balsamic vinegar have a lot more sugar than others and the sugar might burn. Are you spraying the baking sheet with non-stick spray? If you don’t think either of those is the cause, I’d probably just lower the temperature a bit more and add sausage when you think sweet potatoes are about half done.

  12. Sounds so good! Do you think I could sub brussel sprouts for the broccoli (trying to avoid the store)? Would the timing change?

    • I like the idea of using brussels sprouts. I only have one sheet pan meal with Brussels sprouts and that recipe cooks them at 400F for 21-23 minutes. This recipe has a higher temperature, so it might be okay, or I might put the Brussels Sprouts in a few minutes earlier. Love to hear how it works!

      • It was really good with brussel sprouts! I put them in about 10 minutes after I put the sweet potatoes in… the only thing I would do differently next time is not spray the pan first, bc the olive oil/balsamic mix made the pan “non stick” enough. Overall, great recipe for a quick and easy meal! Thanks so much for sharing and giving quick replies to questions! 🙂

    • So glad that worked and you enjoyed! And now I am fixing that silly reply above where I forgot to close the link, lol!

  13. This turned out great. I added a little maple syrup to the sauce for the potatoes. It added a tiny bit of sweetness that was great. Love easy one pan dishes like this. 

  14. THis recipe was a hit! My family loved it only downfall was not having any leftovers! We used the andilles Italian sausages the flavors paired well. Thanks Kalyn ! 

  15. I just had to comment. This recipe was DELISH! I ended up doubling the sauce, I felt like the broccoli would’ve needed a bit more. And it worked out great. Thank you. Checking your site for more yummy recipes!!

  16. Thanks for sharing! Does it reheat well?

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

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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!
