ROASTED SWEET POTATOES, SAUSAGE, AND BROCCOLI SHEET PAN MEAL
2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled
3 T olive oil
1 T balsamic vinegar
1 pkg. (4 or 5 links) pre-cooked chicken, turkey, or pork sausage (about 14-16 oz. sausage)
1 tsp. garlic powder
fresh ground black pepper to taste
1 lb. broccoli, trimmed and cut apart (it would then make about 3/4 pound pieces)
salt and additional fresh-ground black pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 450F and spray sheet pan with non-stick spray.
Cut up two medium sweet potatoes into cubes.
Whisk and combine together the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic powder, and black pepper.
Put sweet potato cubes into a bowl then toss with half the oil-balsamic mixture.
Spread sweet potatoes onto a sheet pan. Put the pan in the oven, and start to roast for approximately 15 minutes.
Slice sausage into slices about 3/4 inch thick. You can trim off the ends so the sausages will be flatter.
When sweet potatoes have roasted approximately 15 minutes, add sausage pieces to sheet pan and roast approximately 10 minutes.
Cut up broccoli into pieces.
Put broccoli into the bowl and toss the broccoli with the remaining oil-balsamic mixture.
Remove sheet pan from the oven and flip sausage pieces over. Spread sausage and sweet potatoes apart then tuck broccoli pieces between them.
Put sheet pan in the oven and cook approximately 15 minutes more, or until broccoli is done just the way you like and sausages and sweet potatoes are browned.
Season with salt and fresh-ground black pepper.
