One-Pan Kielbasa Veggie Bake is the ultimate weeknight meal. It's quick, easy, flavor-packed dinner ready in 30!
When you're looking for no-fuss dinner ideas, it doesn't get easier than sheet pan meals. Everything gets tossed together on a pan and roasts while you unwind from the day. Not only are they easy to make, they can be prepped a day (or two) ahead and baked right when you need them! Today's One-Pan Kielbasa Veggie Bake is one of our oldest and dearest combos that never lets us down. It combines juicy kielbasa, crispy potatoes, tender green beans, and a creamy Rosemary-Dijon dressing that you'll want to smother on everything. We're confident this recipe will land on your regular rotation.
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
Just about any favorite protein will work in this recipe. We're big fans of turkey kielbasa and find it pairs perfectly with our sauce, but any other mild tasting sausage, chicken, or even tofu cubes will do.
When we first began making this recipe (some 8+ years ago!) it actually started out as a chilled potato salad. My, how far we've come! Yukon Golds always have our heart as they are the perfect all-purpose potato. Great for roasting, mashing, frying - you name it! They hold up especially well in this dish and lend a creamy texture and somewhat buttery flavor to the dish. That said, russets, reds, fingerlings, and sweet potatoes can be substituted in their place.
Hearty veggies like green beans, peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, and onions work best for this sheet pan meal. Since everything gets roasted together, it's important that the veggies can hang with the sausages and potatoes.
Our Rosemary-Dijon Dressing
While a sauce may seem like an extra step, we promise you, you definitely DON'T want to miss out. This simple sauce comes together with just a handful of ingredients and completely amplifies this dish. You may find yourself using it on much more than just this sheet pan meal.
HOW TO MAKE THIS RECIPE
To start, whisk together your dressing. For best results, you can make this dressing up to 3 days in advance.
Next, it's time to get chopping. This is by far the most "tedious" part of the the whole recipe. Once it's done, the rest is smooth sailing. It's important to dice the sausage and potatoes into even 1" pieces and green beans in half to ensure even baking time.
Once everything is prepared, toss the sausage, potatoes, and green beans onto a sheet pan and drizzle lightly with avocado oil and sprinkle with seasonings.
Roast until sausage is lightly golden and potatoes and green beans are tender.
Lastly, add your sausage bake to a bowl and drizzle generously with dressing generously.

- 1 12 oz. package kielbasa
