One Pan Sausage Skillet

Hey Y’all! 
I’ve got a secret, promise not to tell? The Farmer & I LOVE chicken sausage; especially smoked apple & gouda chicken sausage “a la Costco”. When your family farms beef; you tend not to eat a lot of chicken (lol) – promise to keep this one a secret from my father in law & I assure you that you won’t be disappointed! If you’re looking for a one stop shop to add to your weekly rotation you’re in the right place! Not only is this meal easy AF; it’s super versatile & can be modified as little or as much as you’d like to tailor it to your family’s needs. 
Here’s What You’ll Need: 
8-10 New Potatoes 
3 Chicken Sausage Links; we’re OBSESSED with the Smoked Apple & Gouda links from Amylu that we get @ Costco!
1 medium Onion – coarsely chopped 
2 Bell Peppers – coarsely chopped 
2 TBSP EVOO 
1/2 TBSP Hidden Valley Ranch Seasoning (divided) 
1/2 TBSP Chili Powder (divided) 
1/2 TBSP Garlic Powder (divided) 
2 TSP Red Pepper Flakes (divided) 
Salt & Pepper to Taste 
Let’s Get Started: 
1. Let’s get that oven pre-heating; anywhere between 375 & 400 degrees will do.
2. While your oven is coming up to temp; start cutting up your potatoes into 1-2 inch pieces; these take the longest to cook so we’ll want to get them prepped & in the oven first. Once cut, place your potatoes into a bowl. 
3. Next, grab your sheet pan & line it with aluminum foil. I like to spray my foil lightly with Pam (you could sub EVOO) to prevent items from sticking. 
4. Now let’s chop up your bell peppers & onion – place these into a bowl (separate from the potatoes). 
5. Time to season; grab two small bowls & measure out the divided seasonings listed above. Add 1/4 TBSP each of Hidden Valley Ranch Seasoning, Chili Powder, & Garlic Powder to each bowl. Add 1 TSP of Red Peppers Flakes to each bowl. 
6. Grab your potatoes & toss in 1 of the spice bowls along with 1 TBSP of EVOO. Mix well to ensure everything is coated evenly. Pour the potatoes onto your prepared sheet plan & pop them into the oven for 20 minutes.

7. While your potatoes cook, go ahead & season the peppers & onion with the other spice bowl & remaining 1 TBSP of EVOO. Once again, mixing well to ensure everything is coated evenly.

Ps; I snuck some fresh corn I had laying around in too!

8. After the first 20 minutes, carefully remove the sheet pan from the oven & add your peppers & onions to the pan.

9. Add your sliced sausage to the pan as well; and carefully place back into the oven for 25-35 minutes – or until everything is cooked through.

Y’all it doesn’t get much easier than that! This meal is perfect for …
  • Days you want to be lazy
  • Days you’re looking for a quick meal 
  • Days you’re looking for a one pan solution
  • Weeknights 
  • Mondays, when everything MUST BE EASY 😉 
  • Whole 30 – just watch your spices (ranch) & sausage selection
  • Weeks when the budget is tight 
  • Pretty much, all the time – yaaaaas! 
What I like about this (outside of it being easy AF to throw together) is how versatile the recipe is, you could easily sub in & out veggies as you please & mix up the spices to change the flavor profile altogether – for example, indian spices would be amazing here! 
Anywho … give this one a try & let me know what you think! 
Bon Appétit!
