Quick and Easy Sheet Pan Dinners Perfect for Weeknight Meals

I am always on the search for quick family dinner ideas.  Aren’t we all? But my real quest is cutting down on all the dishes to clean after dinner! This is how I have come to love making sheet pan dinners with only one pan to clean up when you’re done. One of my family’s favorites is a Sheet Pan Dinner with Kielbasa Sausage, potatoes and veggies. The great part about this meal is once you learn the basics you can change the ingredients to your family’s favorite. Follow along with the sheet pan recipe below and make your kids excited for dinner too! 

Sheet Pan Dinner with Sausage, Potatoes and Veggies 

To start, preheat your oven to 400 degrees.  Grab a sheet pan and place foil over it. I usually spray the foil with nonstick spray just to make sure the potatoes don’t get stuck.  

Now time to cut up the ingredients. Start with about 3 or 4 red potatoes, wash them and cut them up into smaller cubes (as seen below). You do not need to peal these potatoes which is the main reason I choose them. Who has time to peal potatoes?

Next, toss the potatoes in a bowl with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 teaspoon Garlic and Herb seasoning (or garlic salt), and ¼ teaspoon of salt. Adjust this to your families’ taste and what is in your pantry. After mixing them up, lay all the potatoes out flat on a cookie sheet and cook for 20 minutes in the oven. Make sure to leave room on the sheet pan for your veggies and sausage.

While the potatoes are cooking, prepare the rest of your ingredients. Start with washing and cutting up the green beans and asparagus. Note: Lots of other vegetables can be used such as bell peppers or zucchini, so substitute your family’s favorite.

After the green beans and asparagus are ready, slice up some thin onions and throw them into a bowl. I was a little nervous about adding the onions but they came out sweet and delicious. So make sure to try them. Then toss all the veggies with ½ tablespoon of olive oil, ½ teaspoon minced garlic and a sprinkle of salt. Put these to the side.
