This Sausage, Apple, And Herb Sheet Pan Supper is a quick and easy blend of savory and sweet, baked together on a single pan. What’s not to love about a meal that leaves only one dish to wash up afterwards?
Getting a hot meal on the table at a reasonable time every night is hard y’all. I’m sure all of you with families of your own can relate. Add to making something the whole family will like? The struggle is real. And I will never be a short order cook.
Most days, I feel like I do pretty well. Especially when I remind myself that while it may not have been my best effort- those are usually reserved for weekends– I managed while working two full time jobs, and maintaining my kids schedules and home without outside help. Probably why some days I say to myself that I can’t wait until the day I can hire a maid, or a nanny.
Still, when I flip through our family recipe book, or even when I’m sorting through my edited pics to choose a new recipe to share, I walk away feeling like I’m in a rut. Every. Single. Time.
I feel like my blog should be sponsored by chicken. Not a specific brand. Not even a specific part. Just– chicken. Like how did I not realize that we eat this much poultry?? It’s a lot. And I hate for mealtime, no matter how hectic or harried, to feel tedious.
Lucky for you guys, and luckily for me that I don’t have overly picky eaters, I’ve been making an effort to ‘branch’ out in the meat department. Which is probably why the teens were complaining so much this month when they had to do an updated deep freezer inventory, and didn’t know what several things were. Poor babies. At least you’ll have a very developed palate, even if right now you’ve got a cramped hand.
Long story short, that’s how I ended up withe the sausage in this meal in my shopping cart. No idea what I wanted to do with it, just something different. It said ‘different’ to me as long as it wasn’t going in a bun with peppers and onions, without being too far out of field. And let’s be honest again folks, sausage is quick cooking.
Have you heard about this glorious new trend of sheet pan suppers? If you haven’t, you most definitely want to hop on this train. It’s genius.
The idea couldn’t be any simpler. Throw everything on to a big ol’ sheet pan, and bake. Your veggies, your meat, seasonings, etc. One pan, stick it in the oven, and when the timer goes off dinner is done. This Sausage, Apple, And Herb Sheet Pan Supper is my new favorite go-to, save my sanity, weeknight meal.
Italian-style pork sausages are paired with crisp apple chunks, tiny potatoes, carrots, red onion wedges, and several fresh herbs. It’s a merry melody of sweet and savory that bakes together on one pan, ensuring every bit of flavor is soaked up and set in. When dinner’s done, there’s only one pan to wash. Thank you supper made on a sheet pan.
