This paleo-approved sheet pan dinner is easy to make and perfect for busy fall nights. Get some extra veggies into your dinner with this sweet, spicy and savory one pan recipe.
It's no secret we love all the sheet pan dinners around our house. They're easy, healthy and require minimal clean up. I love getting creative with the veggies we use and the sauce that goes with it. This recipe was so fun to create and is full of fall flavors.
- Sweet potato
- Brussels Sprouts
- Al Fresco Sweet Apple Chicken Sausage
- Fresh herbs
- Maple syrup
- Dijon Mustard
Although these ingredients work really well together, you can swap our the veggies for what you have on hand.
Substitutions: butternut squash, potatoes, broccoli, or carrots.
- Try and cut all of the veggies roughly the same size to ensure even cooking.
- Use the amount of oil called for when roasted the sweet potatoes and brussels sprouts. This helps the brussels get nice and crispy.
- To quickly stem the herbs, hold the top and pull down the stem to remove the leaves quickly then give them a rough chop.
- Use the Al Fresco store locator to find a retailer near you that sells the Sweet Apple Chicken Sausage. The real maple syrup and dried apples in this all natural chicken sausage goes so well with all the flavors in this recipe.
Sausage and Veggies Storage Tips:
- To store: place leftovers in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
- To reheat: place back on a large, foil-lined baking sheet and cook at 350°F until warmed all the way through. This also reheats well on the stovetop or in the microwave.
- To freeze: place cooled sausage and veggies in an-air tight container and store in the freezer for up to 3 months. Allow to thaw overnight in the fridge then follow the instructions above to reheat.
What to serve with Maple Dijon Sausage and Veggies?
I love this meal because there really isn't any extra cooking required. It covers all the protein, carbs and healthy fats we like to balance out at dinner. Because this recipe calls for sweet potatoes, there really doesn't need to be another carb, but if you'd like to serve with rice you can!
Toppings: whip up a little extra maple dijon sauce to pour on top or sere with some chopped parsley in a big bowl.
