What’s in sheet pan sausage and potatoes?
A mix of baby potatoes, smoked sausage, onions, and corn is seasoned with spices and butter and baked on a sheet pan.
What potatoes are best for sheet pan meals?
Any potatoes will work. It’s not the type of potato so much as it is the size. Baby potatoes are great because they require no prep outside of washing them. However, if you have larger potatoes, you can simply cut them into smaller pieces.
What’s the best size for sheet pan dinners?
The best sheet pan to use for sheet pan dinners is what’s known as a half-sheet pan. It’s 18×13 inches and has a 1-inch rim around the edge. It’s also made with heavy-gauge metal to limit warping.

That really depends on the ingredients used and the temperature called for. Fish sheet pan meals might cook in about 15 to 20 minutes, while other meals like chicken, beef, pork, or this sausage and potato dinner can range from 40 minutes to an hour.
Do you cover sheet pan dinners while cooking?
It depends on the recipe. Some call for covering and some don’t.
