What you’ll love about this recipe

  • One pan. With just a handful of ingredients and one pan you can create a hearty dinner that looks like it took hours to prepare, but is ready in about half an hour.
  • Warm and satisfying. The combination of Brussels sprouts, onions, sweet potatoes, and kielbasa work together to create a dinner that’s savory, slightly sweet, and utterly satisfying.

Step-by-step Instructions to Make This Kielbasa Sheet Pan Dinner

  1. Preheat your oven to a toasty 425°F and get that warming. Grab a pound of fresh Brussels sprouts, a couple of medium-sized sweet potatoes (or one large one), a yellow onion, and your favorite kielbasa sausage.
  2. First, wash and trim the Brussels sprouts, cutting them in quarters. Next, peel and dice the sweet potatoes into hearty chunks—no need to be too precise here; rustic cuts work just fine, but the smaller they are the faster they’ll cook. I aim for 1/2 inch in size. And finally, for the kielbasa, just slice it evenly into rounds and set it aside for now.
  1. Toss the Brussels sprouts, onion, and sweet potatoes onto the sheet pan, drizzle them with olive oil, and sprinkle with oregano, thyme, salt, and pepper. Mix it all up, ensuring the veggies get a good coating of oil and seasonings.
  2. Roast the veggies for 15-20 minutes by themselves, until the sweet potatoes are becoming tender.
  1. After 15-20 minutes, pull the pan out of the oven and add the kielbasa and minced garlic. Stir it well to mix everything evenly. Return the pan to the oven and roast for another 10-15 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are tender and can be pricked with a fork.
  2. Serve in a bowl by itself or over rice.

Why This Dinner Is so Good

Now, the most crucial part in my opinion—taste testing. Grab a fork and dive in! The combination of the smoky kielbasa, the sweetness from the caramelized onions and sweet potatoes, and the richness of the Brussels sprouts is nothing short amazing.

The soft, crunchy, and crispy textures play off each other beautifully too, creating a satisfying and filling dinner that’s both comforting and hearty.
