This sausage and peppers recipe is super fast, easy to throw together, and comes out delicious and ready to serve in about 20 minutes. How’s that for a weeknight meal?
Tuesdays in our house are super busy, and by the time I get home, I’m whooped.
I have ballet and speech on Mondays, and acting, tap, and voice on Tuesdays, so even though it’s the beginning of the week, I’ve already put in hours of physical activity (and mental, too!)
Undoubtedly, Tuesdays and Wednesdays require fast meals and crockpot dinners since I’m in survival mode after a full 8 hour day at school.
This past Tuesday I made sausage and peppers for dinner because it takes about 20 minutes from start to finish.
You can cut even more time from that by chopping the veggies and sausage the morning of, or the night before and storing it in the fridge.
Sausage and Peppers Recipe
What I love the most about this meal is that it’s super customizable. This particular week I gave it a barbecue twist by adding Stubb’s bbq sauce to it after it was done cooking.
You can even throw it back in the oven after coating it in a sauce to caramelize it a bit, but I skipped this step and it came out delicious all the same.
Sausage and peppers are good on their own, but you can also add your own twist to them and they will still come out really good!
- Barbecue – add some bbq sauce
- Tex Mex – add some frozen corn, cumin, oregano, and cayenne pepper
- Pasta – serve over pasta
- Rice – serve over rice
- Sausage and Potatoes – throw some diced potatoes on the pan as well before baking to add a carb
- Plain Jane – add some regular seasonings like onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper and enjoy as is!
Just a few ingredients
We use 2 packs of sausage for our family of 5 (the 3 kids are all under the age of 5).
Slice up the ingredients and toss in oil on a foil-lined baking sheet. Add spices and toss again.
Bake at 425 for 15-20 minutes, depending on how crispy you want the edges to be. I honestly forgot about mine and let it go a couple of minutes longer than I intended, but it actually tasted perfect.
Add a sauce if you wish, or serve as is. I used Stubbs, which is the absolute best barbecue sauce.
From here, you can throw the pan back in the oven on broil for a minute or two to caramelize, but I did not. It was still delicious!
