The sheet pan dinner trend is, in my opinion, absolutely brilliant. These meals are simple and quick to throw together, and everything is prepared using one pan…which means less clean-up time. It’s not easy to come up with healthy dinner ideas for your family, but a sheet pan dinner can be reworked in so many different ways. Vary the protein, vary the veggies, and the possibilities are endless!

Is apple chicken sausage fully cooked?

Yes! All you are doing when you bake it on the sheet pan is heating it. No worries about getting it done enough, or dealing with raw meat.

Recipe Variations

  • My husband prefers his vegetables separated, but it’s perfectly fine to toss everything together after you add the green beans.
  • This recipe is super easy to adapt to the tastes of your family. Substitute any combination of vegetables for the carrots and green beans. Any kind of potato can be used as well. This dinner is a great way to clean out the refrigerator!
  • Any kind of oil-based salad dressing can be substituted for the Paul Newman’s. Plain olive oil would be delicious as well. If using plain olive oil, sprinkle the veggies and potatoes with some garlic powder for added taste. Balsamic vinegar would also be a very tasty addition.
  • It’s fine to slice the sausage links before baking.
  • Serve with fresh croissants, crusty French bread, or savory garlic knots.

Tips for Baking

It’s very helpful to prepare your ingredients so everything is a similar size. Cubes should be under 1 inch, and slices should be thin. You have three options when it comes to the cook time for sheet pan dinners.

Similar Cook Times

You can choose ingredients that have very similar cook times, and that are chopped/sliced all the same size.

Stagger Cook Times

You can stagger putting your ingredients in the oven, like I did for this recipe. Ingredients that take longer to cook go in first, followed by ingredients that cook quickly.

Use the Microwave

If you have ingredients that take longer to cook than others, microwave the ones with the longer cook times before placing them on the sheet pan.

More Tips

  • If you are feeding a larger number of people, don’t stress about fitting all of the ingredients on one sheet pan. Just use two…but make sure they both fit in your oven at the same time.
  • If you want a crispy layer on the top of your ingredients, simply switch your oven over to the broiler setting at the end of the cook time. Watch it closely…it should only take a minute or two.
  • It’s unlikely, but if you have leftovers, they can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3 to 5 days.

    Hi Ann, I’ve never made a sheet pan diner but you have convinced me. I like Aldi brand Chicken sausage. FYI. The Walmart Great Value cake mix won a taste test and it is only 98 cents.
    Thanks I love your blog!

  2. This was easy peasy and a big hit! We made it with broccoli and carrots and used a lemon pepper dressing, yum!
    I decided to make some fried apples to top off our dinner.
    Thanks Ann! This is a real winner.

  3. Amy @ Ms. Toody Goo Shoes says:

    This sounds delicious! I’m pinning for future reference.

  4. I love sheet pan dinners! So easy (except for all of the chopping) and healthier than many other meals. Thanks for sharing for the Apple sausage, that looks so yummy!

  5. 5 stars
    I saw your recipe early this morning and the timing was perfect! I was wondering what the heck to have for dinner on football Sunday as per usual! I placed my order with Walmart and the ingredients were here within a few hours. My husband loved this (and he’s quite frugal with his compliments on
    my cooking)! The sausage was delicious and the potatoes came out tender and perfect. I’m hoping tomorrow you’ll have a recipe for me for dinner that night as well. Lol
    Thank you, Ann!

  6. Can’t wait to try this…I get apple chicken sausage from Aldi and just saute them and then serve with veggies. This looks fast, easy , and delicious!

  7. Going to try this during the upcoming week. I really enjoy all your recipes. 😁
