We love this quick & easy one-pan dinner, like this Roasted Bratwurst Potatoes and Peppers. It’s one of our favorite go-to recipes, with very little clean-up, any time of year.

In less than 50 minutes, dinner is on the table. Simply chop up the ingredients, place them on a sheet pan, and drizzle with oil. Don’t forget your favorite seasoning and a sheet of foil to cover the pan.

This wholesome, chopped veggie and sausage medley, is a staple in our weekly dinner rotation. 

It only takes about 10 minutes to prepare, and uses ingredients I always keep on hand!  On nights when I don’t know what to make for dinner, it’s either a quick Easy Tortilla Chicken Pie or this delicious sheetpan dinner.

Tips for success

  • Cut the food to similar sizes (to cook evenly).
  • If the potatoes are larger, you might want to microwave them first (to get a head start on baking).
  • Use a large sheet pan, so you can evenly spread out the veggies and sausage. It will cook more evenly this way, than a packed baking sheet.

seasoning the Roasted Bratwurst Potatoes and Peppers

Variations

  • Feel free to switch out the sausage, like beef, turkey and chicken sausage, for your favorite protein.
  • Try different variations of potatoes, like red potatoes, new potatoes or russet potatoes.
  • Keep it low-carb and swap out the potatoes for cauliflower, broccoli, mushrooms, or turnips.
  • Add more veggies (summertime) like zucchini or yellow squash.
  • Change up the seasoning. 

We love to enjoy the smoky, salty, sweet flavors. You can always add a dollop of sour cream (and hot sauce for the big kids).

Repurposing a door for a desk

Friends, we sold our home! Paul & I love fixer upper projects, and now we’re on to our third. We’re now in a cozy cabin rental until we get our next fixer upper. Moving to a smaller house has had its challenges, but it’s also been a freeing experience.

Our first fixer upper (photo below), we took down the center island wall, and repurposed the barn door for a desk!

Repurposing a door for a desk

We made a beautiful barn door desk, setting it on top of 2 IKEA saw horses.

Repurposing door for desk

We covered it with a simple burlap drop cloth to cover the top, creating the most awesome space for a desk! 

Repurposing door for desk

A door for a desk. Simple, and the style is perfect for this home. [You can also do a project like this and get glass to cover the desk, instead of a cloth.]

Back to dinner! This is such a fuss-free way to roast sausage along with some potatoes, onions and peppers. This recipe came from my friend Aggie, and her delicious Italian Roasted Sausage inspiration years ago.

Drizzle it with extra virgin olive oil, add some fresh rosemary and stick it in the oven.

Serve with a giant salad!
