Quick and Easy Sheet Pan Dinner


A sweet and savory combination of sausage, apples, butternut squash, and Brussels sprouts. A delicious marinade is tossed with sprouts and bacon, then it's baked until perfection is achieved.The perfect one-pan meal for the whole family.


1 pack sausage of choice, cut into 1-inch rounds (my fave is chicken sausage)

1 pack sugar free clean bacon cut into 1 inch pieces

1 lb brussels sprouts bottoms cut, halved

1 lb cubed butternut squash (frozen is fine)

1 honeycrisp apple peeled and diced


MARINADE:

1/4 cup olive oil

1 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 tsp coconut aminos

Pepper


Sweet potatoes can replace the squash, but they need to be cooked with bacon from the beginning. They take 30 minutes to cook altogether. We are sheet pan fans for the weekend because we can throw everything on the pad and have meals for the weekend. Toss with dried beans, mix with salad, quinoa, beef, or as a stand alone dish.


1. Preheat your oven to 425. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut your bacon into one inch pieces and spread them out evenly on the baking sheet. Bake for 8 minutes.


2. Meanwhile, chop the rest of your ingredients and add them to a large bowl. Whisk the marinade ingredients together, and pour it over everything in the bowl. Use your hands to mix and coat everything well.


3. When the bacon comes out of the oven, add the remaining ingredients to the pan. Toss everything with the bacon pieces / some bacon fat. Return the pan to the oven for 20 minutes.


4. At this point, check to see if everything is browned to your liking. If you prefer things a little more crispy, toss everything again and return the pan to the oven for an additional 5 minutes.


Serve and enjoy! Let me know you add and what changes you make to this delicious dish!
