This Smoked Sausage & Apple Sheet Pan Dinner has all the lovely flavors of fall in a complete meal that’s cooked all on one sheet pan for an easy weeknight dinner!
Fall is here!! Well actually it’s about 12 days away but still…Pumpkin Spice is in the air and in Starbucks so I declare it to be officially fall. That means it’s time to bust out the sweaters and cozy blankets and fill your home with those glorious fall scents of cinnamon and nutmeg and sage.
Let’s make this delicious Smoked Sausage & Apple Sheet Pan Dinner!
This delicious sheet pan dinner is a variation of my Sausage & Potato Sheet Pan Dinner from that I shared a few weeks ago. I added some carrots and diced apples to the mix in this sweet and smoky fall dinner. It’s comfort food at it’s finest.
Now you might be thinking “Apples?” but trust me, that sweet and savory combination in this Smoked Sausage & Apple Sheet Pan Dinner is to die for!
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. Take out the sausage and it would also make a great Thanksgiving side dish!
What I love about sheet pan dinners is they are crazy easy. Chop up the meat and veggies, coat them in a sauce or seasonings and bake, stirring a few times throughout the process. This particular meal takes about 50 minutes but it’s also pretty forgiving if you cook it a little over or under. You just want all of the veggies to be nice and tender. As it bakes this incredibly sauce thickens and caramelizes making it feel almost sinful.
It’s one incredibly flavorful bite after another!
