I’m all about easy SHEET PAN DINNERS and this one doesn’t disappoint! You’ll start with smoked sausage and add in all kinds of colorful veggies for crunch and flavor. This dish is ready from start to finish in about 30 minutes!
I believe I’ve mentioned my love of smoked sausage before a few times.
It’s just so GOOD. And, bonus points, it’s about the easiest dang protein you can make. It’s pre-cooked, so you just brown it up to warm through. I like to let mine get really browned when I cook it on the stove – those crisp edges are divine. 🙂
What is a sheet pan dinner?
We all know and love a good one dish dinner on the stove and a sheet pan dinner is a very similar concept!
Instead of spending time slaving away over the stove, you’ll put all of your dinner components on a sheet pan and pop it in a hot oven.
The options are really endless – you just want to cut things so that they’ll cook in the same amount of time.
A tiny piece of bell pepper might cook a whole lot faster than a large chunk of radish, so when you’re preparing your sheet pan dinner, just keep that in mind and you’re good to go!
You can also add things in at different times so everything finishes up at the same time.
How to make a sheet pan dinner with sausage:
This sheet pan dinner is starting off with smoked sausage. You’ll slice it into 1/4 – 1/2 inch thick rounds and add that to a bowl along with some vegetables.
You can adjust the vegetables a bit to fit your preferences, but today I’m using a mish mash of low carb goodies such as: broccoli, bell pepper, radishes, and onion.
Bell peppers and onion do have a higher carb content than some vegetables, so use them in moderation. I’m using 1 whole pepper and a half onion.
If you’ve never had roasted radishes, please just trust me and give them a try! They completely mellow out and lose that spicy bite. They get a bit juicy in the oven. Really really good!
Once all of your ingredients are in a mixing bowl, drizzle on some avocado oil. Season with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning and give it all a stir.
Pour your mixture onto a sheet pan and pop it in a hot oven for around 20 minutes.
Stir halfway through and that’s it! Dinner is served.
The broccoli gets nice and roasted, which is outrageously good. The sausage gets a bit browned all around. The veggies are nice and tender. It’s just a total win.
What brand of smoked sausage is low carb?
I’ve scoured the grocery store looking for the best tasting and lowest carb smoked sausage. So far, I believe that Hillshire Farms makes the best options. (This is not sponsored. Just sharing what I like in my house!)
You can use their Hillshire Farms Naturals Smoked Sausage, which has 1g carbs per 2 ounces. This one is my favorite.
Another option is the Hillshire Farms Lite Smoked Sausage. It’s actually less than 1g carbs per 2 ounces and it’s about half the fat of the original. It’s main ingredient is turkey rather than pork. This one is good if you’re watching calories and fat.
