Sheet Pan Sausage and Peppers with Balsamic BBQ Sauce

Sheet Pan Sausage & Peppers with Balsamic BBQ Sauce

Charlotte Hancey
Sausage, peppers, and onions are roasted on a sheet pan with Italian seasoning. A homemade, tangy balsamic BBQ sauce is the perfect condiment for drizzling. Add to hoagie buns with a sprinkling of parmesan for a delicious, easy, crowd pleasing meal.

  • 8 smoked chicken sausages, bratwurst, or Italian sausages (see note)
  • 3 bell peppers, sliced
  • 1 large yellow onion, sliced
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste

For the Balsamic BBQ Sauce

  • 3/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 1/4 cups ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne (add more if desired)

For Serving

  • 8 hoagie buns
  • Parmesan cheese, grated


  • Preheat oven to 400°.
  • Arrange sausages, peppers, and onions on a large sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Bake for 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
  • While sausages are roasting, make the BBQ sauce by adding all ingredients to a medium-sized saucepan. Bring to a boil then simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.
  • Place a sausage, peppers, and onions on a hoagie bun. Drizzle with BBQ sauce and sprinkle with parmesan.


  1. If using "fully cooked" sausage, cook according to directions above. If your sausages are raw, roast them without vegetables for about 10 minutes. Then add peppers and onions and roast until sausages are cooked through.
  2. If you have leftover BBQ sauce, it is delicious on grilled chicken or pork.
