Brats & Spuds Sheet Pan Dinner

Jump to Recipe

Sheet Pan dinners are an amazing way to cut down on dishes and make a great food. When you can put everything on the pan at once and pop it in the oven while you do other things around the house, it’s a win-win on a weeknight. This week I made Brats & Spuds Sheet Pan Dinner – and it turned out so so good.

Brats & Spuds Sheet Pan Dinner

If you can’t find fingerling potatoes – you can totally just use baby potatoes of any kind (red, golden, etc.). I like to use the multicolored fingerling potatoes because it’s just more fun. You can also change up the veggies – I love the combo of onions and peppers but you could add other things as well. I included mushrooms (mostly because I had some on hand and wanted to use them). You could add broccoli, zucchini, or squash too.

Sometimes when I make a dish, I decide at some point to tweak it or change it in some way. When I pulled the sheet pan out of the oven, I immediately thought – this needs a sauce of some sort. And the hubby immediately say it needs BEER CHEESE! So I decided to make a quick beer cheese sauce to go on top of the brats & spuds. I have added that recipe below.

Now Let’s Get Cookin’!

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
