Why We Love It

This delicious sheet pan dinner is a variation of my Sausage & Potatoes Sheet Pan. I added some carrots and diced apples to the mix and sweetened up the sauce for a sweet and smoky fall dinner. It’s comfort food at its finest.

There are big chunks of smoked sausage, carrots, onion, potato, and apples coated in a mix of maple and dijon with the flavors of sage and thyme. It truly is the perfect cozy night-in kind of meal. With or without the sausage, it would also make a great Thanksgiving side dish!

Sheet pan dinners are crazy easy – just chop up the meat and veggies, toss them in some kind of seasoning or sauce, and throw them on a baking sheet. Most take anywhere from 30-60 minutes to cook, and you can serve with a side of rice or noodles. Dinner is done!

Key Ingredients

  • Smoked Sausage – I use 2 full sausage links packages.
  • Apples – Honeycrisp or Cosmic Crisp apples happen to be my kids’ favorites, but you could really use just about any variety. I like the ones that are a little bit tart and a little bit sweet.
  • Baby Carrots
  • Onion – Sweet onions make more sense with the flavor profile here, but feel free to use another favorite.
  • Baby Yellow Potatoes – Or any variety really. I like to use baby potatoes because they only need to be sliced in half and have a creamier texture.
  • Sauce – dried sage, dried thyme, maple syrup (or honey), dijon mustard, olive oil, salt and pepper.

How To Make It

  • Chop all the ingredients into bite-sized pieces.
  • Toss with the sauce.
  • Arrange on rimmed baking sheets.
  • Bake, stirring a few times to ensure even cooking.


How do I store leftovers?

Cool completely, then store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Reheat in the microwave or in a skillet on the stovetop.

Can I make this ahead of time?

This meal is great for meal prep! It will make about 6-8 servings, so feed your family, then portion the rest out for a few lunches for the week.

Can I use other veggies?

Sure, feel free to improvise and choose vegetables that you have on hand.

  1. This was delicious, fast and easy, as advertised. I happened to be out of maple syrup and used honey instead, which worked well, but I can’t wait to try it again already, this time with syrup! You are right, the cooked apples add a touch a deliciousness to simple autumn veggies. I also loved that there was basically no clean up involved. Thank you for this great recipe!
