Enjoy an easy dinner with this Sheet Pan Sausages and Brussel Sprouts recipe. Made with simple ingredients and steps you can have a delicious dinner ready with little time or effort.
This sausage and brussel sprouts sheet pan dinner is one of our favorites because it contains two of my kid's favorite foods in one.
We are huge fans of sheet pan meals around here and it's usually my go-to when I'm busy or do not want to put a ton of effort into dinner.
Most of my sheet pan dinners contain chicken and potatoes like my Sheet Pan Chicken Drumsticks and Potatoes or Sheet Pan Chicken, Brussel Sprouts and Potatoes, so it's nice to switch things up once in a while.
Why This Recipe Works
- Minimal dishes. We only need a few dishes for this recipe but you can reduce it even more by mixing the olive oil and seasonings with the brussel sprouts on your baking sheet before adding the sausages. Fewer dirty dishes is always a winning reason to try a recipe.
- Basic ingredients. We don't need anything too fancy, just a package of your favorite sausages (we use Brats), some brussel sprouts, and some seasonings from your pantry. You more than likely have most (if not all) of the ingredients on hand already.
- It's a faster dinner solution. In less than 30 minutes you could have a delicious dinner waiting for you. We like to serve this up with some flavored instant mashed potatoes or cooked white rice because they're simple side dish starches but almost anything tastes great with this sausage brussel sprouts sheet pan dinner.
Sausages- You'll need several sausages for this recipe. I like to buy 2 of the 5 count packs because then there's enough for everybody to get two and some leftovers as well.
Brussel sprouts- Use fresh brussel sprouts that have been washed and trimmed.
Olive oil- This is what will help to coat everything so it cooks evenly, and it also helps the seasonings to adhere to the veggies.
Seasonings- For the best flavor, you'll want to use salt, black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning too.

Check out how to make sheet pan sausages and brussel sprouts with these simple step-by-step instructions:
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with foil (if desired).
Evenly space your brats on the baking sheet so that they are not touching. Set aside.
Wash your brussel sprouts. Cut off the bottom ends and slice them into halves (quarter them if they're really large).
Place the brussel sprouts into a bowl and drizzle with olive oil and then add the seasonings.
Toss the brussels well until well coated.
Place the brussel sprouts onto the baking sheet, around the sausages as they can fit.
Bake for 15 minutes, flip the sausages with a pair of tongs and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
The sausages are finished cooking when they reach an internal temperature of 160F degrees.
You can easily swap out the sausages in this recipe for ones that you'd prefer like chicken sausage, kielbasa, or brats.
You could even change out the brussel sprouts for broccoli florets, cauliflower florets, or trimmed green beans.
For a fuller meal, you can add quartered red potatoes in with the brussel sprouts (remove 1 pound of brussel sprouts and add in one pound of potatoes) so that there is room on your baking sheet. Make sure that the potatoes are well coated in olive oil before baking.
🍴 Recipe Tips
You can adjust the seasonings to suit your own tastebuds.
Brussel Sprouts Prep
To prepare the brussel sprouts, wash them all well in a colander in the sink under cool running water. Then transfer to a towel to drain as you work your way through the batch, chopping off the wooden-like bottom ends of the sprouts.
After the bottoms have been removed, sit the brussel sprouts upright on the cutting board and use your knife to slice them into halves (if small) or quarter sized pieces (if larger).
If the brussels are smaller than a quarter, simply cutting them in half is sufficient. You can either discard or keep and use the loose leaves that fall off of the sprouts.
🥗 Side Dishes
We like serving up these sausages and brussel sprouts with simple starches like rice or potatoes. You can serve yours up with just about anything you desire and it's sure to taste great either way!
Reheating this recipe is incredibly simple. Just place a serving's worth of food onto a plate and heat in the microwave for 1-2 minutes on high. Or place it in the air fryer and heat at 360 degrees F for about 4 minutes, checking or mixing everything around after 2 minutes. You can also just reheat everything in the oven.
You can keep the leftovers from this recipe for up to 3-5 days in an airtight container. Reheat again before serving.
You can prepare the brussel sprouts with the olive oil and seasonings in a covered mixing bowl, gallon sized baggie, or airtight container and keep them stored for up to 24 hours in advance in the fridge.
Yes, trimming brussel sprouts is what helps to remove the bad leaves (leaves with holes, or unsightly spots) as well as remove the wooden-like ends at the base. The hard bottoms of brussel sprouts do not soften while baking and can be very unpleasant to chew on.
