A riff off the ballpark classic, this sheet pan dinner recipe is made with hearty Italian sausage, buttery Little potatoes, and roasted bell peppers. The perfect busy weeknight dinner recipe!
My husband is a Bostonian and we spent many years living there together while we were dating. As a result, we have very fond memories of visiting Fenway Park. Of course, you can’t visit Fenway Park without trying one of their famous sausage and pepper subs.
This sheet pan dinner is a riff off the ballpark classic, made more nutritiously with nutrient-packed Creamer potatoes, red bell peppers and sweet onions.
I’m on a major sheet pan dinner kick and for good reason: they’re versatile, easy to prepare and great for using up whatever produce I have on hand!
When roasted, the potatoes and peppers caramelize and the sausages become perfectly crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside.
Since the The Little Potato Company’s Creamer potatoes are pre-washed, this entire meal is prepped in just a matter of minutes. Once you throw the pan in the oven, dinner practically cooks itself.
To intensify the flavors even more, I like to add oregano and fresh rosemary. Additionally, garlic cloves are added in whole which slowly roast in the oven. The roasted garlic turns out creamy and sweet.
1-2 bell peppers, sliced
1 package (at least 1 lb) of your favorite sausage links (johnsonvilles, evergood, generic smoked sausage, whatever you like. i used polish sausages, 4 to a pack)
4-5 decent-sized potatoes (i prefer yukon gold or red bliss)
3 tbsp olive oil (yes, it has to be OLIVE oil)
1 small jar banana peppers
1 large onion, sliced
salt & pepper
*optional — 2 tsp dried rosemary (bachelors, ignore this. your salt and pepper will be fine. i know that asking you to procure olive oil was already a stretch.)
*optional — tsp creole seasoning
spray a large baking pan w/ nonstick spray (make sure there is at least a small “lip” that provides a “side” to the pan, don’t use a flat baking sheet.
slice sausages into thin rounds, about 1/5″ thick. if you know how to slice using a “bias” cut, do that. if not, don’t worry about it.
cut potatoes into 1/2″ chunks
slice onion and pepper into strips
place all ingredients on baking sheet and drizzle oil over. use your hands to toss everything together in the oil, making sure everything feels coated.
add salt & pepper and spices (if using)
top w/ sliced banana peppers
bake at 400 for about 30-35 min, until potatoes are tender
