I make this dish monthly. At least. It’s quick and easy to prepare, the ingredients are cheap, and my family loves it.
However, I never considered it a blog-worthy recipe. In fact, until this post, there was no recipe. It’s something I’ve always just thrown together without giving much thought to steps and ingredients.
Once I started sending out my weekly meal plans, I realized I this simple sheet pan dinner needed its own post. So what if it’s stupid simple? Isn’t that kind of the appeal?
The onions almost caramelize while they roast in the oven, turning them into a sweet accompaniment to the smoked sausage. I like to season everything with a healthy sprinkle of Tony Chachere’s Cajun seasoning. Cajun seasoning is on the spicy side, so I typically have to season one side of the pan with seasoning and the other side with salt and garlic powder for the kids.
