This Sheet Pan BBQ Smoked Sausage Dinner with roasted potatoes and broccoli is super easy to prepare and ready in just 20 minutes! Even your pickiest eaters will eat this right up!
This quick and easy one dish dinner recipe is a variation on one of my family’s favorite meals — Sheet Pan Smoked Sausage Dinner. I make it a lot, and even though we love kielbasa as it is, I like to change things up every now and then.
So last week, instead of making the usual kielbasa and potatoes or pasta, I did something slightly different — I cut the kielbasa into thin slices and slathered them with barbecue sauce. Granted, it’s not rocket science or anything, but even the slightest change can make a difference.
In this case, that little change made a huge difference, and my family loved the new version even more than the original. Actually, even my pickiest eater would eat just about anything if I put barbecue sauce over it!
Even though the two recipes are similar, I had to make a few changes to the way the meal is prepared. Since the smoked sausage is cut into thin slices, it cooks in only a few minutes. So, it gets added at the very end of the recipe, along with a few broccoli florets.
Since the potatoes take the longest time to cook, you start with them first. Just toss them with olive oil and spices and bake them on a sheet pan for about 15 minutes or until they’re tender.
While the potatoes are baking, slice the kielbasa into thin pieces and coat them with barbecue sauce. You can use your own blend or your favorite store brand.
Then, you just add the kielbasa slices to the pan, along with the broccoli, and bake the entire thing for about five more minutes or until the meat is done and the broccoli is tender.
I added some shredded cheddar cheese to the potatoes at the end, but this is completely optional. We just happened to have some on hand, and cheddar goes so well with BBQ flavor. But like I said, you don’t need it.
I should also say that you can cut down on the prep time by having the potatoes and broccoli ready to go in advance. So, if you want to make this on say, Monday, prep the veggies on Sunday if you have some extra time.
