What’s in Sheet Pan Sausage and Veggies?

If you have leftover frozen veggies, you’ll love making some Roasted Frozen Broccoli later in the week for a fast and delicious side dish.

We roast so many dang vegetables in the Cook household that I even created This Guide on Roasting Frozen Vegetables. We love the convenience and how affordable cooking with frozen vegetables is!

What Are the Best Vegetables to Roast Together?

Honestly, you can use any veg for this sheet pan sausage and veggies meal. The trick is to pair things that will finish roasting around the same time.

If you want to use thicker or denser vegetables like russet potatoes or butternut squash, simple make sure the pieces are small so they will cook more quickly.

It’s fine to use 100% frozen vegetables or a mix of fresh and frozen (like I did here). This recipe calls for a whopping 8 cups of vegetables because you’re worth it!

How to Make Sheet Pan Sausage and Veggies

*Detailed and printable recipe card is at the bottom of this post.

Place half of a damp towel in the bottom of a microwave-safe bowl. Put the potatoes in the bowl and cover with the rest of the towel. Microwave for 4 minutes.

Carefully remove the potatoes and place on a large sheet pan. Use a large spoon to gently press down on the potatoes to flatten them. Sprinkle with a pinch of kosher salt.

Combine all the rest of the veggies in a large bowl (I use this mixing bowl daily for so many different purposes) and toss with olive oil and seasoning. Spread on the sheet pan. Bake for 12 minutes. Pro tip: If you have any fast cooking vegetables (like asparagus), set those aside to roast with the sausage.

Meanwhile, slice the chicken sausage. Add the sausage to the sheet pan if there is enough room, or another pan if necessary. Bake until it has reached your desired crispiness.
