A beef sausage link is one of our go-to meats. They come fully cooked, easy to slice how we want and can be quickly matched with numerous meal options for any time of day.
This specific recipe is an easy way to incorporate a meat, the sausage, with potatoes and a vegetable. And like so many of the dishes we share with you, it’s simple to adapt to meet your tastes.
Not a fan of beef sausage? Switch it out for chicken or turkey sausage.
Your family doesn’t like broccoli? Use a fresh green bean, Brussels sprout or other veggie instead.
Have a favorite potato? Go for it!
You can also substitute the rosemary for another seasoning if you like.
As long as you allow time to thoroughly cook your potatoes and vegetables, while also following the directions for your meat, you should be in great shape for a delicious dinner within an hour. And that’s the kind of meal we always love, especially on weeknights!
Sheet-pan dinners have become a bit of a fad in the food-blog world. You’ll see major culinary companies and home cooks like us sharing them by the list-full. We don’t make a ton of them, so we don’t offer many here on #FoodieScore, but we assure you this is an easy one that stands out. Enjoy!
Beef Sausage, Broccoli & Potatoes
What You Need:
1 bag quick-cook broccoli crowns (You can use fresh, but that should be cooked first.)
4 baby potatoes (not the super-tiny potatoes but large big baking potatoes)
1 beef sausage (about 12-ounce package) sliced in circle pieces
4 gloves fresh garlic, minced
2 teaspoons rosemary (fresh or season shaker)
5 tablespoons olive oil, plus additional cooking spray or oil
salt and pepper to taste
What You Do:
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. Cut potatoes in half or into slices.
3. In a bowl, toss potatoes, 3 tablespoons olive oil, 3 cloves minced garlic and rosemary to coat evenly.
4. Spread onto baking sheet covered in foil (if you like to make cleanup as easy as possible like we do) and coated with additional cooking spray to keep from burning. Season with salt and pepper.
5. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes.
6. In the same bowl as you used for the potatoes, mix and toss broccoli (steamer bag doesn’t have to be cooked first), 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 clove garlic, salt and pepper.
7. Remove baking sheet from oven. Turn all potatoes to opposite side. Add broccoli. Return to oven.
8. Bake for 15 additional minutes.
9. Remove from oven, and add slices of beef sausage. Mix together to spread evenly across pan.
10. Bake for 15 additional minutes, until potatoes and broccoli are tender, and potatoes and sausage are slightly browned.
11. Take sheet out of the oven, divide onto plates and serve.
YIELD: Depending on the size of your potatoes, bag of broccoli and how much of your sausage you use, this will serve at least 4 people and up to 6.
