Ingredients Needed for Sheet Pan Sausage and Vegetables

The next time you are looking for an easy dinner recipe, try my go-to sheet pan recipe. You’ll need very few ingredients; truthfully, you can add whatever vegetables you have in your refrigerator or freezer. I usually keep a bag of frozen veggies on hand for this easy recipe and to make dinner prep even easier. These are the ingredients I use, but I customize them as needed. This is a great recipe with easy-to-find ingredients at your local grocery store.

Sausage: I used uncooked Bratwurst, but you can choose your sausage. Use what you have on hand or like best.

Fresh Vegetables: I chose zucchini, yellow squash, bell pepper, onion, and radish. Use some veggies you like and what you have in your produce drawer. Some vegetables take longer to cook.

Frozen Mixed Vegetables: For easier prep and convenience, I keep frozen veggies on hand.

Olive Oil: I prefer olive oil to coat my vegetables, but a good neutral oil will be fine.

Seasonings: Use what you like the best. I always grab salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. If desired, add cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes for heat.
