My family has been enjoying this simple sheet pan dinner for a few years now; everyone loves it and it is easy to prepare. The sausage I use for this recipe is Evergood pineapple sausage but you can substitute with other sausage types. I purchase mine at Costco and have seen it at other grocery stores too.

How to make this Sheet Pan Dinner

Making this sweet potato and sausage sheet pan dinner is simple. Preheat your oven to 400F. Slice your sausage links into 1 inch rounds and dice the sweet potatoes into 1/2 inch cubes.

Add sausage and veggies onto a large baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Add chipotle seasoning, salt and pepper, and maple syrup if using. Toss until all ingredients are fully combined and coated in olive oil. Bake for 40-45 minutes, stirring once at 20 minutes. It is done when the sweet potatoes are cooked through and the sausage is caramelized slightly. Enjoy with brown rice and a side salad.

Ingredients needed for Sheet Pan Dinner

Sweet Potatoes are a great source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals and taste amazing.

Pineapple Sausage caramelizes beautifully and adds protein.

Chipotle powder adds heat and depth. I like to use the Penzey brand. You can add more if you want extra heat and flavor.

Maple Syrup (optional) adds sweetness

Salt & Pepper

Olive Oil

*Other variations including adding raw onions to the sheet pan or a little bit of miso paste mixed with water. Sheet pan dinners are highly adaptable.
