How to Make Sausage and Peppers

- Next, slice the onion into strips the same size as the peppers, about a 1/2 inch wide.
- Cut the sausage into circles about a 1/2 inch thick.

Tips for the Best Sheet Pan Sausage and Peppers:
- Make sure the sausage is cooked through prior to serving. It sounds like common sense, but I wanted to mention it. Some sausage is sold precooked, so it only needs to be reheated. Other sausage needs to be cooked all the way through. This recipe should allow enough time to cook the sausage thoroughly. However, it’s best to know what kind of sausage you’ve purchased prior to getting started.
- Cut the ingredients to the same size to ensure they’ll cook evenly. Nothing is worse than having overcooked onions and under-cooked peppers, because they’ve been cut to different sizes.
- Choose flavors you and you’re family will enjoy. If you don’t like green peppers, leave them out. Maybe add some herbs or spices like a sprinkle of fajita seasoning or taco seasoning. As with all of our recipes, many of the ingredients are interchangeable. We want you to enjoy the food, so make it to your liking. Use our recipe as a guide.
