This post has been Sponsored by Melissa’s Produce. We received a great big box full of deliciously fresh produce which we very much enjoyed.
Sheet Pan Dinner
Sheet Pan Dinners have been all the rage for quite some time. My Sausage and Vegetable recipe is a great place to start if you are just experimenting with them. This isn’t my first time cooking one but it is my first time sharing one on the blog. This one begins with Smoked sausage then add Sunchokes, Yams and Red Onions and you have a colorful flavor packed quick and easy sheet pan dinner.
Easy clean up with this particular sheet pan dinner. Everything is cooked right there, no extra bowls, pots or pans. That makes it a winner in my book!
I’ts Fall Flavors Week Y’all and I couldn’t be more excited to team up with a talented group of recipe creating bloggers. We have been having such fun behind the scenes making new recipes for you to try this Fall. Scroll all the way down for the list and come back every day this week. Yep, new recipes every-day-this-week! ENTER THE GIVEAWAY!! Scroll Down To Enter
What Are Sunchokes
Also known as Jeruselem Artichokes, Sunchokes are a thin skinned root crop with a nutty taste. They are similar in consistency to a potato. They are a good source of Iron, Potassium and Fiber but not good for a low carb diet.
Try them. You might be surprised how tasty they are and how similar to white potatoes they are. Ours came from Melissa’s Produce. They were super fresh and totally delicious and easy to cook.
How To Chop Vegetables For A Sheet Pan Dinner
Peel the skin off before cutting and chopping. This is of course optional and it depends on which vegetable we are talking about. For this recipe that would be the Sunchokes and the Yams. I prefer to peel them both.
Lots of folks wash the sunchokes and do not peel them because it’s a bit of a pain to do just because they are so small and knotty. Personally we like them better peeled so that is what we do. If you plan to wash and chop without peeling, use a good vegetable brush like this one.
Cut large vegetables like the yams into manageable pieces before cutting into smaller bite size pieces.
Now cut the peeled and chopped vegetables into bite size pieces as near the same size as possible. Smaller chopped pieces will cook faster. We want all of our ingredients to get done about the same time so the size you cut your veggies is important. Make them as similar as possible.
Optional Vegetable Substitutions
It’s all about the cook time with this sheet pan recipe. The root vegetables tend to get done about the same time so let’s stick with those for substitutions in this particular recipe.
- Turnip root
- Russet Red or White potatoes
More Easy One Dish Dinner Ideas
Our Italian Sausage & Tortellini Skillet Meal is a yummy weeknight meal made in the Skillet on top of the stove. It’s an affordable meal with few ingredients full of taste.
Have you ever made a foil pack dinner? Everything cooks in the foil at the same time. You can eat from the foil then toss it away. It’s more than a win-win. Our Campfire Chicken & Veggie Foil Pack Meal is a mainstay in our meal plan.
Speaking of sausage, here is another way to make a one dish dinner in the skillet. We probably add this one to the Meal plan too often but it’s because it’s so delicious and full of fiber.
Pairing smoked sausage with Yams, Red onions and Sunchokes creates a fiber rich and tastefully delicious easy weeknight meal. Easy clean up with this particular sheet pan dinner. Everything is cooked right there, no extra bowls, pots or pans.
- 1 Tbsp. Italian Seasoning

- 2 lbs. Smoked Sausage
- Line a large sheet pan with foil and spray with non-stick spray
- Peel and cut up the Yams and Sunchokes into bite size pieces
- Cut the onion into thick slices
- Cut the sausage into bite size rounds
- Add 1/2 the vegetables into a large Ziploc bag then drizzle with the Oil (you will be doing these same steps with the other half of the vegetables)
- Sprinkle with 1/2 seasonings and toss the vegetables around in the sealed bag so they are evenly covered with oil and seasonings.
- Repeat the process with the rest of the vegetables.
- Spread all of the vegetables out evenly on the sheet pan and then add the cut sausage
- Bake at 375° for about 35-40 minutes or until the vegetables are fork tender.

I placed a few sprigs of fresh Thyme from my Herb garden around mine.
