It wasn’t until we moved back to the Springfield, MO area that we had Chicken Sausage for the first time. My mom had us over for dinner and it was delicious. So, when I stumbled upon this Chicken Sausage and Peppers recipe, I knew this was a healthy sheet pan dinner that would be a new favorite.
Not too long ago I shared a Sheet Pan Recipe for a Mini Meatloaf Dinner and mentioned that I committed to sharing more sheet pan dinner recipes. I honestly didn’t expect that it would be this soon, but I’ve been spending a little more time in the kitchen and enjoying every minute of it.
However, don’t ask me how the work room/craft room is looking these days… I still haven’t completely unpacked in there, but my stomach is happy. Haha. Sometimes I wish there was a magic wand I could use to just finish up the decorating, projects, unpacking, etc, etc. Ya know?
Anywho, this past weekend while I was doing a little work (i.e. this Chicken Sausage and Peppers Healthy Sheet Pan Dinner), my brother happened to be staying with us. He was asking a lot of questions about blogging and the process. After doing this for almost 6 years, it’s so second nature to me, so I forget how it can be quite an unusual concept to others. It was kind of fun talking him through it all and watching him try to wrap his head around all of it.
He asked what happened after the pictures were taken. I replied, “We eat!” And that we did… I enjoyed my dish by slicing the sausage into thinner pieces and layering the meat and veggies on the toasted baguette slices. Oh my goodness. It was like eating a tiny toasted sandwich. So good.
I’m super excited to share this Healthy Sheet Pan Dinner is served. Enjoy, friends!
