Sheet Pan Sausage and Peppers with Pierogies is a hearty and flavorful dish that is a perfect weeknight meal for the entire family. An easy recipe that anyone can make with a few simple ingredients!
Sheet Pan Sausage And Pierogies
I love sheet pan meals because they are so easy and this Sheet Pan Sausage and Peppers with Pierogies is no different! With lots of flavor and super easy cleanup, this is a hearty recipe you’ll keep coming back to.
A delicious twist on a popular sandwich, this sausage sheet pan dinner can be served on a bed of cauliflower rice, in hoagie rolls, or with a side dish of some crusty Italian bread.
On busy weeknights and using a rimmed sheet pan, this one-dish meal comes together with some quick prep. Chop your vegetables in the morning and set them in a Tupperware in the refrigerator until you get home. Once you are ready, assemble the entire meal on your large baking sheet in five minutes, set it in the oven, make a side salad, and you have a great dinner.
What Is A Pierogi?
A pierogi is a dumpling with a doughy outside and a pillowy interior made from various ingredients. They are typically served with sour cream, just as you can offer with these sheet pan pierogies. If you are choosing a sweeter variety (such as a sweet cheese or other dessert pierogi), they can be topped with ground cinnamon.
In Chicago, we are surrounded by delicious Polish pierogies that can be purchased from the local grocery store or restaurants. Kasia’s is the brand that I always purchase if it is available, but you should be able to find others in your refrigerated or freezer section for this tasty pierogies sheet pan dinner.
We love pierogies in our house, so we’ve had many varieties, but for this easy weeknight dinner, I tend to go with something savory. Potato & Cheese is a favorite, but I’ve also used Spinach as well as Kraut & Mushroom. You can easily change up this meal plan based on what’s in your freezer.
Baked Sausage And Peppers Recipe
How To Make:
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2 white onion, chopped
2 cups bell peppers, chopped (fresh or frozen)
4 bratwurst or sausages
16 small frozen pierogies
Kosher salt & black pepper (to taste)
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Coat the pan with olive oil.
Take out a cutting board and a sharp knife and chop your onion and large bell peppers. These can be large chunks or smaller chunks, whatever your preference.
Place the chopped onion and peppers in an even layer on one half of the sheet pan.
Lay the frozen pierogies in a single layer on the other half of the pan. Spray the tops of the pierogies with nonstick cooking spray.
Place the sausages on top of the vegetables.
Sprinkle the entire pan with salt and pepper to taste.
Place the large sheet pan in your preheated oven and cook for 15 minutes.
At the 15 minute mark, flip both the sausages and perogies and cook for 10 more minutes or until the sausages are cooked through.
Serve this delicious meal with a little bit of sour cream, parmesan cheese, hot sauce, red pepper flakes, or just as it is, and enjoy!
Should My Sausages Be Frozen Or Fresh?
You can use either fresh or frozen sausages for this recipe. These instructions are based on frozen sausages, but if you are using fresh sausage that has been in your refrigerator, cut your cook time by 5 to 10 minutes. You will know when the dish is done when the edges of the pierogies are beginning to brown.
What Type Of Sausage Should I Use?
You can choose your favorite sausages for this easy sheet pan dinner recipe. I prefer to pick a savory sausage over sweet sausages because you have sweet peppers already included in the dish, but anything will work. A delicious chicken sausage, turkey sausage, pork sausage, or nicely seasoned beef sausage will work. I’ve also made some hearty Italian sausage with this dish and it’s amazing. Tailor your ingredients list so that your whole family will enjoy the dish.
What Kind Of Bell Peppers Should I Use?
I used green bell pepper and orange bell peppers, but you can choose yellow bell pepper or red bell peppers as well for this sausage and pierogies sheet pan meal. These can be fresh or frozen. Because the colors of the sausage and pierogies are pretty dull, I like to include some colorful bell peppers to brighten up the dish.
