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!

Here’s a look at how the meal is prepared:
- Line a baking sheet with foil, then add sliced sausage and diced veggies on top.

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.

Sheet Pan Turkey Sausage and Vegetables
- 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 ½ 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
- ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
- freshly grated Parmesan cheese, optional for garnishing
- 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.
- Evenly sprinkle with the onion flakes, parsley, oregano, rosemary, salt, pepper, and toss with your hands to evenly coat and distribute seasonings.
- 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.
- 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.
- Optionally sprinkle with Parmesan and serve immediately.
- Dish is best warm and fresh but extra will keep airtight in the fridge for up to 5 days.
