This easy Sausage and Potatoes Sheet Pan Dinner is a simple dinner that is ready in about 30 minutes! A filling and delicious meal, perfect for busy nights when you don’t want to cook.
Hiiii guys. It’s the holidays, right? But you still need to eat dinner. And preferably something with protein that isn’t cookies. Enter this 30 Minute Sausage and Potato Sheet Pan Dinner. You know I love my quick and easy dinners like this Easy Sausage and Cabbage Skillet or this Paleo Sausage and Slaw Skillet. This is another one of those “I don’t want to cook but I need something healthy-ish so what should I make for dinner?” kind of recipes.
Seriously, this is the best kind of dinner for busy nights. Prep takes 5 minutes or less, everything cooks on one sheet pan (hello easy cleanup!) and it takes 30 minutes to cook. Add this to your rotation of weeknight dinners!
I added apples to this because apples are amazing with pork. If you have never added apples to a savory recipe, this might seem odd, but the apples work really well in this recipe! They add just the right amount of sweetness, and really compliment the sausages.
Sausage and Potatoes Sheet Pan Dinner
- 4-5 sausage links uncooked
- 4 small-medium Yukon gold potatoes
- 1 medium sweet onion
- 1 medium apple such as Fuji
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary minced
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- Preheat oven to 400°F.
- Dice potatoes, onions and apples into eight pieces each. Throw on a large baking sheet.
- Add olive oil, rosemary, paprika, oregano, salt and pepper. Toss until the vegetables are fully coated.
- Push the vegetables to the sides of the baking sheet and lay the sausages in the middle. Try to spread everything out evenly so that there can be heat circulation and nothing is overcrowded. This will help things get crisp instead of soggy.
- Bake for 30 minutes or until sausages are done and vegetables are tender.
PS I meant to give this 5 stars in my review….sorry not sure what happened!
This is an awesome sheet pan dish. It’s very quick and easy to put together and it’s tastes really good. Like some of the other home cooks, I added a few red pepper slices and some green beans (without overcrowding the pan). One thing I will do differently next time I make this dish is to start cooking the veggies on the tray for 15 mins first, give them a good old stir and THEN add the sausage for another 20- 25 mins. Might just be my oven, but when I started cooking everything at the same time, the sausages got a little over cooked (dry instead of juicy). It was still very delicious and I will definitely make again!
Thanks for the great post, pics and inspiration!

So simple and very tasty, thank you I need more delicious recipes like this!
So glad you loved it Jo!
Loved this super easy and tasty dinner! We added a simple green salad for some color and freshness. We’ll get five meals out of this recipe, which is wonderful. Thank you for sharing this yummy meal!
So happy you loved it, thanks Allison!
Fantastic! What a delicious, pretty healthy, easy weeknight dinner! I made exactly as-is, with spicy sausage to contrast the sweet onions and it came out perfect. Next time I’m doing a chicken sausage and adding apples too. Yum!
So happy to hear that you loved it! Thanks Jared!
Oops, I meant “Next time I’m doing a chicken sausage and adding granny smith* apples too.” Came back to check the recipe again and saw that typo. It’s in the oven (again) now, and smelling great! 😀
This was delicious. I added sweet potatoes, red Bell peppers and lots of onions. In the hot air oven I had two layers. The sweetness of the caramelised peppers, apples, onions and sweet potatoes complemented the taste of the pork sausages. Hubby and three boys2men gave it a thumbs up!!
So happy to hear that you and your family loved it! Sweet potato sounds like a great addition!
Made this for my wife and our 3 yo and they loved loved loved it! definently adding it to the list for the future
Yay! I’m so glad to hear that!
