Sheet Pan Kielbasa Dinner Recipe
When I was talking to Carrian (Cade here, nice to see you all!) about what a busy year we have ahead of us since signing on to tour with Time Out For Women, she mentioned that she didn’t want family dinner to suffer. I agree with her, making the decision ahead of time that we will always sit down as a family for dinner is really important. We want healthy one-pan dinners to make appearances too as that will help keep us full in the right ways, which is why we are sharing our sheet pan honey garlic kielbasa and potatoes with broccoli recipe with you today!
Sweet potatoes and a mixture of potatoes (like purple, golden Yukon, etc.) help this dish fill you up so you won’t be reaching for a snack after dinner. The broccoli adds a layer of freshness and variety in color, and, as we all know, adding more color to our plates is not only good for vitamins and nutrients but your brains actually respond to the food more which helps you not send signals later that you aren’t satisfied.
Broccoli doesn’t need all the time that the other ingredients need though, so make sure you don’t throw that on until the last 10 minutes.
The honey garlic sauce is only going on the meat as well. I learned an important lesson years and years ago with Carrian that the seasoning, if it’s really good, doesn’t need to go on everything. I made lemon pepper chicken with lemon pepper potatoes and lemon pepper broccoli and though she tried to eat it and never mentioned how bad it was, we were soon coughing from so much pepper and everything tasted the same, which wasn’t good. I guess there really is too much of a good thing.
What’s in This Kielbasa and Potatoes Recipe?
We wanted to keep this kielbasa dinner recipe as simple as possible, so we used all pantry staples to whip up this quick meal. Here’s what goes into this kielbasa recipe with potatoes and broccoli:
- Pork kielbasa
- Sweet potato
- Other potatoes (your choice!)
- Olive oil
- Unsalted butter
- Dijon mustard
- Dried basil and oregano
What is Kielbasa?
Kielbasa is a Polish sausage that’s usually flavored with garlic. It’s either hot or cold smoked, though today you’ll find it most often hot smoked. The meat is usually cured and then has garlic and spices added to it.
How to Cook Kielbasa in the Oven
Cooking kielbasa on a sheet pan is easy peasy. Here are the basic steps to mastering this recipe:
- Whisk together the honey garlic sauce in a bowl.
- Oil the sheet pan and spread out the chopped potatoes in a single layer. Toss with more olive oil, salt, and pepper.
- Add the sliced kielbasa to the sheet pan and brush with all but 2 tablespoons of sauce.
- Bake for 20 minutes, then add broccoli to the sheet pan and bake for another 5 to 10 minutes.
- Brush the kielbasa with the remaining sauce just before serving. Enjoy!
Can I Use Different Veggies in This Sheet Pan Recipe?
Absolutely! You definitely don’t have to use the same veggies we did, we just loved how the Polish kielbasa sausage paired with the root vegetables. However, you could use asparagus, carrots, or any other veggies you have on hand.
Can I Double This Kielbasa Recipe?
Have more mouths to feed? You can definitely double this recipe, but you’ll want to split the ingredients between two sheet pans and rotate them in the oven halfway through baking. If you try to cram the ingredients onto one sheet pan, you’ll overcrowd the pan and the veggies will steam instead of roast.
Tips for Cooking Kielbasa and Potatoes
We still serve this kielbasa dinner recipe with a side salad just to freshen things up even more. Grains like rice and quinoa also pair nicely with this sheet pan dinner. But this truly is so filling on its own — and what’s the point in a one-pan dinner if you’re going to do even more work?
In the same vein of keeping this kielbasa recipe as simple as possible, note that you don’t have to peel the sweet potatoes before roasting them. Just give them a thorough wash under warm water and pat dry before dicing them. The skin is packed with nutrients!
This sheet pan recipe is best the day it’s made, but leftovers keep in the fridge for up to 5 days.

This was incredibly delicious! I will be making this again and again. My husband loved it so much that unfortunately there is not enough left for another complete meal! 😆
Hi Anita! This is the best news! Thank you so much!
Making this right now.tasted the sauce.it is soooo yum.
Hope you enjoyed it! Thanks Lisa!
We made this tonight and EVERYONE loved it!!!! It’s going on our permanent monthly rotation! I followed the recipe to the letter, and it turned out perfectly and was so easy to prepare! Thank you!!!
Yay! Thank you so much Robin!
Made this last night for dinner and it was delicious and easy! The glaze added a nice amount of sweetness and flavor without being too overpowering. Next time I would bake the potatoes separately for an extra 10 minutes because I prefer them to be a bit crispy. I will definitely make this recipe again!
Thank you so much for the feedback Morgan! This is a family favorite in our house!
Made this for tonight’s dinner. Was delicious. My husband wants me to make this recipe and use salmon.
Yay! So glad you enjoyed it! Oooooh, salmon sounds yummy! Now I’m going to have to dry that!
Sooo good! Super easy didn’t take long and inexpensive as well! And husband approved!
Thank you Brooklyn! These are all things I love…easy, yummy and inexpensive!!
To lose weight, eat wholesome meals and proteins, particularly vegan plant protein powder.
We make this like once a month and the whole family loves it (ok, except my little that still turns her nose up at sweet potatoes). Great way to use kielbasa/smoked sausage.
Yay! Thank you so much Sarah!
Delicious! We used sweet potato, Idaho potatoes, green beans, and carrots.
Yummmm! Sounds amazing!
My daughter said “We should make this everyday!”. Amazing recipe, I will make this often!😋
That is the best thing I’ve ever heard! Thank you Kolleen!!
Delicious! I had to substitute vegetables because I didn’t have sweet potatoes or red potatoes. I used regular potatoes, carrots and broccoli. My guy had 3 servings!
Hurray! Love to hear this! Thanks for the feedback!
I made this the other night and it was delicious! I used butternut squash instead of sweet potato since I had some in the fridge that needed to be used up. I also used chicken and apple sausages instead of kielbasa since we had it on hand. That sauce was sooo good! I love a simple sheet pan meal and this did not disappoint – we’ll definitely be making it again!
Thank you so much Michelle! We love sheet pan meals too! It’s so convenient. I love butternut squash in this too!
This dish is so damn delicious!! It’s an absolute hit and normally have to make an extra portion because one of us is greedy 🤣! I love it with beetroot and coleslaw! I make this regularly!
Yay! Thank you so much Delia!
Love this recipe and have shared it many times, but it seems like you should credit Damn Delicious for adapting the sauce recipe as they are virtually identical. https://damndelicious.net/2015/06/27/one-pan-honey-garlic-chicken-and-veggies/
Hi Amanda! We love Damn Delicious! A few of the ingredients are slightly different. It’s a pretty standard honey garlic sauce and we’ve been making it for years and years. I promise we didn’t copy anything from Damn Delicious! I’m so glad you enjoy this recipe!
I sure hope you didn’t! 🙂 I started making her recipe the other day and thought- wait a sec, I’ve made this before. Sure enough, the only difference between the two sauces was a slight decrease in brown sugar. I definitely prefer it with the kielbasa though. Thanks for your response.
We love it with kielbasa too! Thank you for the support!
Very yummy but how did you calculate the nutrition facts? The calories per serving seem very low and kielbasa would have more than 1 g or protein.
I plan to make this tonight! One question- did I miss info on how to/when to season the broccoli. Use oil, the sauce, just S& P before? I know, it’s not a big deal, but asking for your best suggestions.
Hi Nancy! Great question! I need to make that more clear in the instructions. You can just drizzle a little olive oil and salt and pepper on the broccoli before adding it in. You will only use the sauce on the kielbasa. Enjoy! We would love to hear what you think!
Trying it tonight and am excited but the instructions don’t say how to prepare the garlic or to use minced garlic.
Hi Althea! I’m so sorry for the confusion. The garlic cloves should be minced and then mixed into the honey sauce that goes onto the veggies and kielbasa.
Love this dish! Prep time for me is closer to 30 minutes though. Perhaps I’m a slow chopper?
Hi Linda! It is always so hard for me to judge prep time with chopping. I’m so glad you loved this!
BY FAR a favorite recipe of mine. I have made it multiple times and it is always a hit! I tweak it here and there according to how I’m feeling, whether using different veggies or leaving out the white potatoes, but any way I do it it’s great. I like to add red onion and I make extra of the sauce because I like to put it on everything! (I also usually add Sriracha to the sauce and MAN does it make it.)
Thank you so much Hannah!! I love mixing things up the veggies on this one too! It’s so versatile! I love the sounds of adding a little sriracha for some heat…yum!
Always a favorite..made it a few times. The trick is cutting the potatoes into small chunks. The only minor caution is the misleading calorie label those who are into counting calories. It really depends on the size of your potatoes so always do your own weighing and measuring.
Thank you so much for the feedback and the great tips Phoebe!
If it helps anyone, I put each of the ingredients into a custom recipe in my Lose It app and it came out to 355 calories per cup, with my potato measurements at 1.25 cups cubed sweet potatoes, 1.25 cups cubed red potatoes, and 1.5 cups cubed Yukon golds, plus 2 cups broccoli florets, though I sometimes use an asparagus and broccoli mix.
Thank you for the extra info!!
This is SO STINKING GOOD!!! My kids wipe this out!
Thank you!!! Anytime you can find a recipe that the kids will eat, it’s a win!
Oh my this was amazing! Thanks for a yummy recipe. Definitely making again!
Thank you Emily!
This was fabulous! Will be making again, which is a rare accomplishment for new recipes in my house.
Yippee!! Love to hear that Susan! This is on the rotation in our house as well!
I was directed to this recipe from Real Mom Nutrition. It looks amazing in terms of the seasonings so I want to try it. Do you have any suggestions on ways to tweak it with out sausage? Can I use any other protein? We don’t eat pork.
Hi Jacquelyn! Yes you can totally use any protein you want. If you want to keep the sausage flavor, you can use a turkey sausage. I do that a lot just to make it a little healthier. You could also use chicken breasts cut up in chunks or even shrimp would be delicious!
Made this tonight and we are devouring it! So delish! Thanks so much for a fun new way to cook turkey kielbasa!
We love this for a quick summer meal! So easy and light! I’m so happy you enjoyed it too and thank you for taking time to leave a comment! Xoxo!
Is the kielbasa in your recipe already cooked? I have some fresh (not cured or cooked) I plan to use and am wondering whether I will need to change the recipe.
It’s fresh! It should be totally fine.
This recipe is delicious however when I do the calorie count it is way off. I entered the recipe and for 4 servings it says it’s almost 700 calories per serving. Perhaps it is the brand of kielbasa that caused the discrepancy? I will continue to make this but I will omit the butter and cut back the Oliver oil to help lower the calories. The honey sauce is simply amazing!
I will look into it and get back to you, I’m glad you liked the sauce!
This is delicious! Incredibly easy to make.
Thank you so much! It is one of my go-to’s for a busy night!
Can this be turned into a freezer meal?
Yes! I would freeze it before cooking it and before adding the sauce. Then when you are ready to cook it, let the kielbasa and veggies thaw in the refrigerator overnight and then add the sauce and bake as directed.
Very good and so easy! Thanks.
Thank you Bev!
For the honey garlic sauce, do you use a specific type or brand of honey?
No, we buy the big bottle at Costco since we use it so much.
This was really great! The mix of Yukon golds with sweet potatoes was perfect. I could see how you can easily sub other veggies in if you have picky eaters. Thanks for this!
Thanks Angela! I love sweet potatoes in this too!
I made this tonight and we loved it! I subbed carrots for the sweet potato and added a few halved baby sweet peppers. We prefer the meat and vegetables with a char so I upped the temp to 425 the last 10 minutes. This will be on the rotation in the future!
We swap out veggies all the time! What a great idea! Thanks for the feedback!
Really good recipe! I was looking for something to make with 2 packages of keilbasa in my fridge and this was perfect. Thank you!
Hurray!! So glad you enjoyed it!
Hi Carrian and Cade. I am literally exploring so many different recipes from your website. You can definitely try for Masterchef.
You are too kind Mike! Let us know when you try something out and how it goes!
Hello again. Just wondering if you have suggestions on pairing this with something for dinner. I’ve read your notes about this is good on its own, what would be good with it besides salad? We will be having company this weekend and thought of serving this because this is one of the best/my favorite among your recipes. Thank you.
I also love a good rice dish with it or some kind of grain like quinoa or cous cous. We’ve had it with rice pilaf and a fruit salad. Enjoy!!
Very good and so easy! Thanks. We paired it with chicken fettuccini.
Hi. I would like to double this recipe. Do I need to adjust the oven temperature and/or the bake time? My husband and I love this recipe! Thank you.
Nope, should be exactly the same, just make sure you don’t overcrowd your sheet pan. You might even want to spread it out onto two sheet pans and rotate them halfway through the bake time. We love this one too!
i always read your recopies and every time my i think how you can do it, outstanding,
This dish is amazing! I followed the recipe exactly, and then added yellow onion and slices of apple. I also tossed the broccoli with a little butter, splash of lemon juice, salt and pepper before adding to dish. Everyone LOVED it!
Thanks sooo much!
Yum, BeLinda! That sounds delicious! Thanks for taking a moment to leave a comment for us!
Really good recipe. Thank you for sharing.
Thank you, Jodi!
Made this tonight and really enjoyed it. As the recipe for the sauce did not mention how to prepare the garlic, I minced it. I also blanched the broccoli for a few minutes knowing it would not be tender enough for me with only ten minutes in the oven. I did put the broccoli in the pan with the kielbasa and potatoes after 20 minutes, but as I wanted my meal on the well done, carmelized side I left the pan in the oven for another 30 minutes after adding the broccoli (a total cooking time of about 50 minutes). Will definitely make again!
Great comment for others who try the recipe. Thank you so much for taking the time to do that!
This looks like such an awesome weeknight dinner! I love using kielbasa for really quick dinners. It packs such great flavor. But that honey garlic sauce looks soo good! Can’t wait to try it out!
