We don’t like to say that some recipes are better during just one or two seasons — unless that dish has ingredients you can only get certain times of the year. This sheet pan smoked sausage, apple, and root veggie dinner might just be one of those recipes…

Root vegetables, like Brussels sprouts, carrots and onions, grow underground. Even though a lot of vegetables are available year-round, some just taste better in their true peak season, like Brussels sprouts, which are harvested in the fall. Red onion and carrots, on the other hand, grow throughout the year, but the flavors and textures can change depending on the season. In October through November, red onions are known for having a sharper and spicier flavor. And carrots are known for having a sweeter taste when harvested after the temperatures drops. Together, red onion, carrots, and Brussels sprouts make a great trio, especially when caramelized and then baked with Hillshire Farm smoked sausage and Honeycrisp apples.

The Honeycrisp apples and root vegetables in this sheet-pan recipe contain sugar (like most fruits and vegetables). When the sugar is exposed to heat, compounds are released that change the flavors and darkens the color of the vegetables, giving them a sweet, creamy and buttery flavor. Caramelizing smoked sausage doesn’t make it taste sweeter, but when the sausage bakes alongside caramelized Honeycrisp apples and root vegetables, the complex sweet and smoky flavors blend together perfectly.

    Did a play in this recipe, by substituting the apple for potatoes. Quick & easy sheet pan meal. Great served with bread.

    A nice blend of flavors. The ingredients are easy to prepare, it doesn't take too long to cook. The ingredients are easy on the budget. Plus, its delicious.

    Overall, it was absolutely delicious, however I think next time I will omit the lemon juice at the end. While it tasted good on the other ingredients, the carrots soaked up a lot of it and so I had sour carrots. Otherwise, it was perfect.

    Easy, tasty, great leftovers. Made it last night, daughter asked to have it again today!

    I added potatoes and used two packages of sausage to make sure I would have enough food for a family of four. I had to use two sheet pans and two rotations under the broiler (Otherwise it was too much to keep on a single layer in one pan). It came out amazing! Everybody loved it! Even the teenage boys.

    So yummy! I changed the recipe just a tad, instead using venison sausages and using sweet potato in place of the Brussel sprouts. My husband called it an 11/10.

    Very good. We changed it a little and added broccoli minus the Brussels sprouts. Also just baked it all together with the apples, no broiler. Easy to make and delicious. I will double the sausage for meat lovers.

    Delicious! I left out the Brussels sprouts since I don’t care for them and used chicken and kale sausage

    It turned out well, and make sure to have oil as one of your ingredients when mixing the vegetables.

    This dish was quite yummy. Followed almost everything except I had no onion or rosemary. Used Italian seasoning instead. Also had to use Pink Lady apples. Would absolutely make thus again.

    Easy to make except states oil but recipe doesn’t state why kind or how much. Easy to double but apples needed a little more time. Delicious and put in as a favorite because of taste and simplicity
    Kacie Kraft 6 months ago
    So good and simple! The apples needed a couple extra minutes.
    Delicious! I used 2 sausages to feed more people but it turned out great

    Family is tired of my use of recipes with Rosemary, but they did enjoy it. The apples needed to broil 7 to 8 mins. (Oven times vary, I know.)
    Easy and delicious. The apples could have cooked a little longer.

    This was DELICIOUS!! It was a huge hit with my four sons!

    Really good flavors. 20 minutes plus broiler was too long for the Brussels sprouts. They were squishy and didn’t get enough char from 5 minutes under the broiler. I’d add them after everything else ha cooked 5 minutes and then use the full broiler time or more. Also, the recipe doesn’t say how much oil to use. Maybe if I’d used more, the sprouts would have crisped more.

    The whole family loved it! I made it with the vegetables we had on hand...sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts, parsnips, and onions. The only change I would make next time is to bake for a shorter amount of time, stirring/flipping it all half way through.
    Dawn Osborne 7 months ago
    I was surprised how much we liked it. I substituted broccoli for the carrots and added potatoes. I also used cajun sausage which added great flavor. The next time I might add shrimp.
