Brats and Peppers Sheet Pan Dinner: An easy and delicious kitchen supper. Make it for your kids tonight – they’ll love it!
I know brats are not a very attractive food to photograph, but I do hope you’re going to give them a chance anyways. They taste amazing, and are so easy to make!
How this recipe works
- Place all the ingredients (apart from the liquid) in your biggest casserole dish and toss – no need to dirty an extra bowl!
- Turn the sausages about halfway through the cooking time and deglaze the dish with wine or stock
- Finish roasting until the sausages are browned and the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork
This recipe comes from Mary Berry – a cook whom I adore and my entire family finds very incredibly weird. Tastes are different, but I sure hope you’re sharing my taste for an easy sausage supper 🙂
- When I photographed this recipe, we used the last few red peppers left over in our garden. Obviously we don’t have fresh red peppers anymore, so we used a jar of roasted ones. Tastes just as good!
- Do use a coarse pork bratwurst for this – not the smooth-looking white Bavarian ones. You can use any variety you like – we had an Italian seasoned one.
- If you’re not a fan of mushrooms you can just leave them out. It’s a pity, but you can because I like you 😉
- If you have big eaters around the table, serve with a crusty homemade loaf of bread on the side. I definitely can’t do this dinner without a nice slice of country loaf.
