Hey cousins! I’m back with another recipe, and I know that this recipe is one that you will certainly love for several reason. Reason number one- This smoked sausage, carrots, and potato sheet pan dinner is extremely easy to make. This dinner idea only calls for a few ingredients, and more than likely you already have everything on hand. Reason number 2 – This sheet pan dinner recipe is so delicious, even the most picky eaters will love this dinner recipe, even the kids. Reason number 3- this meal cost under $10 to make. Who doesn’t love a budget meal?
For this sheet pan recipe I used smoked beef sausage, but you can use another smoked sausage if you choose such as polish sausage, or kielbasa. Also, I used russet potatoes, but you can certainly use baby reds, or golden potatoes. If you’d like to keep this recipe as low cost as possible I suggest sticking to the ingredients that I used!
What else can you cook on a sheet pan?
Believe it, or not you can cook almost anything on a sheet pan. That’s why sheet pan dinner are so popular. You just add your ingredients on the sheet pan, cook in the oven, and dinner will be done in less than an hour. Some of my favorite ingredients to use when making sheet pan dinners are:
- chicken ( especially boneless)
- cubed pork
- thinly sliced beef
- smoked sausage
- and fish
I love using those proteins when making sheet pan dinners, because they’re really easy to deal with, and they don’t take long to cook. When it comes to vegetables, I like to use:
- and etc
I also like to incorporate pasta & rice into my sheet pan dinners. However, I have to cook those ingredients prior to adding to the sheet pan of course.
Do you have to cover sheet pan dinners?
It really depends on what you’re making! I rarely cover my sheet pan meals while cooking them. However, If I make my sheet pan teriyaki chicken wings, or pork chops I make an exception for those. I like my chicken wings, and pork chops to be extremely moist. Therefore I cover the sheet pan with foil, while cooking them, to keep the from drying out.
Should I line my sheet pan with foil?
Lining your sheet pan with foil helps prevent food from sticking to the pan. Therefore I highly suggest that you line your sheet pan with aluminum foil when you make sheet pan meals. The foil helps make an easy clean up!
