Healthy Smoked Turkey Sausage Dinner Recipe

If you’re like me, there are many nights that figuring out what to make for dinner seems like a daunting mystery. I’m always thinking to myself that I want to make something new, something the whole family will enjoy, something that’s easy and affordable while still being healthy yet tasty.

With this easy sheet pan sheet pan turkey sausage and vegetables recipe that’s ready in under an hour, the what-to-make mystery is solved. It checks all of the boxes above.

This turkey sausage dinner recipe takes advantage of lean, protein-packed Butterball Everyday Smoked Turkey Dinner Sausage. The sausage is already cooked and getting this meal on the table is as easy as slicing the sausage, chopping the vegetables, and throwing it all on a sheet pan. Line your pan with foil so that cleanup is a breeze.

My family loves turkey and Butterball calls people like us Turketarians – people who believe that if you aren’t eating turkey, you’re missing out. Turkey is part of a healthy lifestyle so don’t save your turkey eating for just the holidays when you can have it year round.

The veggies develop great flavor because they’re not only seasoned with onion flakes, oregano, parsley, and rosemary but because the sausage is smoked, it also lightly perfumes the veggies with a mild smoky flavor.

Put this on your easy weeknight dinner rotation. Your Turketarian friends and family will love how good it tastes!

What to Serve with This Recipe 

This smoked turkey sausage sheet pan meal is a dinner in itself, but you’re welcome to extend the recipe by serving it with a green side salad, rice or quinoa, buttered noodles or orzo, or a simple fruit salad. 

Can I Use Frozen Vegetables? 

No, you must use fresh vegetables in this smoked turkey sausage recipe. Frozen veggies will release too much moisture in the oven, and you’ll wind up with soggy vegetables rather than crisp-tender ones.

Tips for Making Turkey Sausage and Vegetables

Veggies: I used vegetables that are fall-inspired, like sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts, along with zucchini and broccoli, but you can also use bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, green beans, or whatever you have in your produce drawer or that your family loves.

Sweet potatoes: One important tip is to dice your sweet potatoes quite small, no more than 1/2-inch in size, so they cook through in the time it takes the rest of the vegetables to cook through. The same goes for the Brussels sprouts — if you have extra large ones, I would quarter them rather than just halving them.

Cheese: Don’t forget the cheese! A sprinkle with Parmesan cheese adds a finishing touch for a savory, salty pop.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 5 minutes

Ingredients

  • one 13-ounce Butterball Everyday Smoked Turkey Dinner Sausage, sliced into 1/2-inch rounds
  • about 12 Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved (or quartered if large)
  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and diced into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 medium/large zucchini, trimmed and diced into half-moons
  • 1 1/2 cups broccoli florets
  • about 3 to 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon dried onion flakes
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
  • freshly grated Parmesan cheese, optional for garnishing

Instructions

    1. Preheat oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil for easier cleanup, and add the sausage, Brussels sprouts, sweet potato, zucchini, broccoli, and evenly drizzle with olive oil.
    2. Evenly sprinkle with the onion flakes, parsley, oregano, rosemary, salt, pepper, and toss with your hands to evenly coat and distribute seasonings.
    3. Scatter vegetables in a flat layer and not piled on top of each other; it’s okay if your baking sheet is very crowded because the vegetables do shrink as they cook.
    4. Bake for about 45 to 60 minutes, or until vegetables are tender and have as much color as desired; toss halfway through baking to ensure even cooking. Start checking at 40 minutes for doneness since all ovens, veggies, etc. vary.
    5. Optionally sprinkle with Parmesan and serve immediately.

  1. Very good and will make again.  Only difference was a different brand of turkey sausage that was more like a large hot dog.  We had about 1/2 pound leftover from a gumbo recipe, so cut them up in bigger chunks.  Would maybe want more onion flavor next time, either will add fresh chunks of onion or more onion flakes.

  2. We all loved the recipe.  Might make subtle changes but then again I just popped in the oven and ran an errand so I couldn’t keep an eye out on it.

  3. This was fabulous. Packed with flavor and healthy goodness and sooooo easy to make during the week. Definitely will be making this a staple in my household!!!!

  4. This was so tasty! I had three helpings when I took it out of the oven. If I hadn’t got my tummy full; I’d still be eating! Thanks for the recipe. It’s a keeper!

  5. How about all the grease that comes out from the sausage? Should I boil the sliced sausages first before putting on baking sheet? I am going to use regular smoke sausage (husband’s relative had a turkey farm, I tend to not eat turkey anymore).

    1. There is very little grease that comes out from the Butterball Turkey Sausage that I used. Make the recipe exactly as written and as shown in the video.

  6. I just made my first sheet pan meal last week and am kicking myself for not doing it sooner. Totally trying this sausage, we love turkey everything.

    1. They’re lifesavers! Especially when you can just add everything at once, stick it in the oven, and forget about it til dinner is ready!

  7. I’m ahead of you! I always buy the turkey sausage and I made your previous sausage sheet pan recipe with it. My family loves it … but unlike Paula, we never have leftovers. Too many people fighting to eat it up. :) I need to try your chicken version of the meal next.

  8. I need to try this! I made many of your sheet pan recipes last year and loved how easy they are. The leftovers are a big plus as well. We’ve had a mild summer so I son’t mind turning the oven on, but this recipe also reminds me that autumn is coming!

    1. It’s that time of year when sheet pan dinners seem to be appropriate and will be making their comeback. Our summer has been mild too; the past few years at this point in the summer it was in the 90s for weeks on end!

      Yes to leftovers too!
