Sheet Pan Smoked Sausage and Peppers.
Easiest meal ever, coming right up.
I can’t believe I’m actually showing you this sheet pan sausage and peppers, but it’s been so requested since I constantly talk about it. Eddie calls it my cop-out meal, and it totally is because it takes NO time at all.
Okay, that’s a lie. It does take a bit of time in the oven, but the prep for it only takes a few minutes. And it tastes really great! Even though it’s the most unphotogenic thing ever. It even made an appearance in my recipes disasters a few years ago – that’s how long I’ve been holding out on you. I just will never get over sausage photography.
SO, you guys know that I really don’t love sausage. My favorite thing to use here is turkey sausage and we really love smoked turkey sausage. But you can use any kind of sausage!
Okay now I will stop saying sausage.
And there are so many ways you can eat this. Obviously, right off the pan! Nothing else. Many times we end up eating it with just the peppers and the sausage because it’s easy or we’re in a rush.
You can also make an additional side with it, like rice or quinoa or potatoes – or whatever! I probably make brown jasmine rice the most often. Trader Joe’s makes my favorite. I like the juices from the pan to mix in with the rice. Uh huh.
Another option is to shove it all on a sandwich! If you have leftover buns (or just buy buns to use for this!) add a slice of melted sharp cheddar or something… ooooh, it’s amazing. We actually discovered this by accident after a day where I’d been recipe testing pretzel buns and beer cheese sauce. HOLY COW. Sandwiching THIS on THAT was incredible.
However, it also turned it into a not-so-light meal. And we usually use this meal as one of our fall-back healthy choices during the week. So it’s very rare, but I have been known to make said pretzel rolls and beer cheese just for this dish. As a treat. As a serious indulgence. Or, like, party food!
So now you know our biggest weeknight secret. Right here.
Sheet Pan Smoked Sausage and Peppers
- 2 smoked turkey sausage links 12 to 15 ounces total, sliced in half length wise
- 1/4 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce
- 1 red bell pepper sliced or chopped
- 1 orange bell pepper sliced or chopped
- 1/2 red onion sliced
- 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon balsamic glaze
- 2 garlic cloves minced
- pinch of salt and pepper
- 2 tablespoons fresh oregano
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray (or mist with olive oil).
- Slice the smoked turkey sausage length wise and brush the open sides with BBQ sauce. I then like to cut them into roughly 2-inch long pieces (see above photos for reference).
- Place the peppers and onions on the baking sheet. Toss with the olive oil, balsamic glaze, minced garlic, salt and pepper. Add the sausage pieces on the sheet.
- Roast for 25 to 30 minutes, until the veggies begin to caramelize and the sausage gets golden. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with fresh oregano. Serve immediately!

I have some Omaha sausage that I am going to try this with tonight for the Pens game!
ahh hope you enjoyed it! great game!
What brand of smoked turkey sausage do you use! I’ve been dying to make this ever since you mentioned it on insta stories months and months and months ago
i tend to use my store’s brand but i’ve also used the hillshire brand in a pinch!
Love love LOVE this idea! So simple but it sounds incredible! I think I might try tossing it all into linguine. :)
thanks ashlyn! love that idea!
My mom used to make something like this often when I was growing up but it was too bland for my palate as an adult – your addition of BBQ sauce and balsamic glaze looks great! I’ll be trying this soon!
yay thanks jenna!

This is a great, easy dinner for my family of six (I make two pans, though,) I roast red potatoes and broccoli on the pans for a complete meal!
yes to 2 pans for sure!! sometimes eddie can eat 3/4 of this pan by himself!
Is balsamic glaze the same as balsamic vinegar? Is there a way to make it glaze without buying a new product? :-) This looks yummy and I am on a “use what you have in the pantry” spree right now.
balsamic glaze is a like a syrup – it’s thicker and sweeter. you can make it yourself from balsamic vinegar! but you can also totally use the vinegar and it will work well too!
Yum. On the list for next week. Maybe ill add some sweet potatoes on the pan because they are everything to me…and sweet savory!
love that idea!
I want to know what you used for the balsamic glaze.
i used this delallo brand! https://www.delallo.com/shop/delallo-modenacrem-balsamic-glaze

making this tonight! trying with turkey keilbasa! i hope it comes out ok!
I made the entire dinner — the sheet pan sausage and peppers — delicious — and the pretzel rolls and beer cheese sauce. We had ours with fresh cole slaw. It was wonderful! My only problem was the peppers and onions stuck to the foil on the pan. The pretzel rolls and beer cheese sauce were delicious also! It was a process making all of this for dinner, but I will do it again.
This was bonkers good! I mean, I knew it would be yummy, but my entire family gobbled it up! Love having this in my back pocket now when I need a fast dinner. Thanks so much for posting!
I love that you cut these in half lengthwise! The crispiness is what it’s all about for me, but somehow I did not think of trying that at all.
This was delicious! I also added sweet potato like another reviewer mentioned. My girls helped me “paint” the barbecue sauce on the sausages and they thought that was so fun. Thanks for another great and easy weeknight dinner.

Today morning I was looking for board games as after a long search I have found out free backgammon online games which are of old board games but today these games are presented with the latest technology and designed in such a manner so that you can easily access to these games.

AWESOME! Everyone loved! Have never had balsamic glaze in my house so made from scratch as I had ingredients -super easy! Made recipe to a T and WOW ! Someone asked what kind of sausage – I use locally made . Here in Detroit that is Kowalski or Dearborn brands – once you have a good sausage you won’t want to go back to store brand .THANK YOU for posting ! I was so sick of making the same stuff.

This was so flavorful and super easy! I love all your sheet pan meals!
Great recipe – what is the calorie count per portion/serving size? Thanks!
Very good recipe. I was trying to use what I had, and since I didn’t have Balsamic glaze, I used Balsamic vinaigrette. I wanted to make it a one-pan meal, so I added some cubed potatoes. My son, who is picky, gave it two-thumbs up.
