Hot Italian sausage, roasted peppers and onions and crispy potato wedges. This sheet pan sausage and peppers dinner is a complete meal with minimal fuss and only one pan!
I really love food, but I think you already know that.
My love of food has led me to a love of cooking but one thing that I have never fallen in love with is cleaning up all the dishes that cooking brings.
I'm always looking for ways to reduce the number of dishes used during the whole process. If you are anything like me with the hate on for clean up, let me introduce you to your new culinary best friend: sheet pan meals.
A complete meal (sides and all) with only ONE dish to clean at the end. They're like the holy grail of meals for people who love to eat but don't want to clean up.
In my opinion, a really great sheet pan meal is one where you put everything on the one pan, let the oven do all the work and then pull it out with everything ready in the same amount of cooking time.
This sheet pan sausage and peppers dinner is exactly that. You get perfect oven roasted sausages and peppers and onions along with crispy potato wedges.
The key to a really great sheet pan dinner is having a large enough sheet pan to bake on without crowding and to size your ingredients so that they all cook at the same rate. I use one that is 15 x 21 inches which also happens to be the perfect size for making big batches of crispy oven fries.
How to make sheet pan sausage and peppers
Get your oven heated and then start on cutting up your vegetables.
Cut your peppers and onions into slices about ⅓ of an inch thick and your potatoes into wedges about ¼ inch thick.
Toss up the peppers and onions with half the olive oil then season them with salt and pepper before spreading them out across half of the sheet pan.
Toss the potatoes in the rest of the olive oil along with the garlic powder, onion powder, thyme and salt and pepper then spread them out across the other half of the sheet pan. Make sure that there is space between the wedges if you like them crispy.
Because the peppers and onions release a fair amount of liquid when they cook I like to build a little 'sausage wall' up the middle of the veggies and the potatoes so that the liquid doesn't leak onto the potato side and keep them from crisping up.
Place the sheet pan in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes taking the sheet out once about halfway through to flip everything.
Divide amongst the plates to serve and enjoy!
