Sheet Pan Sausage + Peppers



Sheet Pan Sausage + Peppers

Servings 6


  • 2 pounds sweet Italian sausage, cut in half
  • 3-4 medium bell peppers, (color of choice), sliced into strips
  • 3 small onions, sliced into strips
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1-3 sprigs fresh thyme, leaves removed
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • balsamic glaze (optional)


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

    Line a large rimmed sheet pan with parchment or foil paper.

      Drizzle 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil on sheet pan. Place the cut sausage, bell peppers, onions and garlic on pan. Drizzle with the remaining olive oil; sprinkle with thyme, salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes. Mix well and bake for 25-35 minutes, until the sausage is fully cooked (internal temperature should be 145-150 degrees for pork and 165 for chicken/turkey sausage) and peppers are fork tender.

        Drizzle with balsamic glaze (if using).
