Kielbasa & Potato Sheet Pan Dinner

Jump to Recipe

Sheet Pan dinners and weeknight meals go hand in hand! They are quick to put together, quick to cook and quick to clean up – all the things you need on a busy evening. I usually try to make mine with a meat, a starch, and a veggie. Then I bring it all together with some seasonings. I followed this formula to a T with my Kielbasa & Potato Sheet Pan Dinner recipe. The interesting flavor in this dish is the chives. I love the unique flavor they bring to meal.

I opted to use dried chives over fresh because fresh are more likely to burn too fast when cook along with the potatoes. With the moisture already removed, they more just release their flavor. I also used dried minced onions because I love the flavor of them when they rehydrate in a dish like this. It is such a powerful punch. Both dried chives and minced onions are also a time saver – as its just a shake-shake, instead of chop-chop-chop!

When it comes to kielbasa sausage, I prefer an all beef kielbasa. However, you are welcome to use your own favorite kind – I have seen chicken, pork or turkey. The name kielbasa refers more to the way the sausage is made and seasoned then the type of meat that is used. If you cannot find Kielbasa, you could also swap it out for a smoked sausage, as long as it’s in a link and not ground. The ground meat would need to be cooked separately and probably take longer.

This hearty meat and potatoes doesn’t really need an additional side dish, since it has the green beans cooked in there too. But you could certainly do a simple green salad or a nice dinner roll on the side.

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.
