One pan, easy meals are the key to dinnertime at our house, roasted brats with potatoes and green beans fit that bill nicely.

Roasted Brats

Oven roasted brats, sausages, or kielbasa are an easy go-to for sheet pan meals. The prep is super simple and being able to pop a pan in the oven and walk away for 30 minutes is what we are all looking for.

The key to sheet pan dinners is having a combination of items that will all be done at the same time. Fast even cooking is the goal.

Sheet Pan Brats

You’ll start by cutting baby potatoes in half. Snap the ends from your green beans, but leave them whole. By leaving them whole, they will cook at the same rate as the potatoes and sausage without getting overdone.

In keeping with the goal of even roasting, choose sausages that are about 4 ounces in size. If they are larger, go ahead and cut them in half to achieve that even cooking we are going for.

Sheet pan meals really are the best of so many worlds. The ingredients are simple, everyone at my house loves them, and the prep and dishes are minimal.

You just can’t go wrong with a sheet pan meal. (Kitchen Tip: If you are on the run and want no pans to wash use parchment paper or foil when roasting.)

How to Cook Brats in the Oven

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Place the brats, potatoes, and green beans on a large baking sheet. Combine the oil, garlic, salt, and pepper in a small bowl and stir to combine. Pour the oil mixture over the sausage and vegetables. Use your hands to stir the pieces around and make sure everything is well coated.
  2. Roast for approximately 30-35 minutes, until the brats and the vegetables are hot and lightly browned on the edges.

Note: Kielbasa or Polish Sausage may be substituted for the brats in this recipe, simply cut the bigger sausage into smaller sections.

This recipe can easily be doubled. Simply use two sheet pans. Depending on how your oven cooks, you may want to rotate the pans halfway through the cooking time. Allow about 10 additional minutes cooking time for a doubled recipe.

Bite-size chunks of potato, kielbasa, and broccoli are roasted together for a super easy sheet pan meal that the whole family loves.

This is an easy dinner recipe; my family continues to make it at least once a month. It takes about 5 minutes to toss the chicken, potatoes, and green beans in a simple lemon and herb vinaigrette before roasting until tender and crisp.
