Sheet Pan Meals

Since purchasing the Breville smart oven air last year, I have become quite fond of sheet pan meals. I might hesitate to run the big oven so often for just myself, but I think nothing of filling the air fryer basket up with veggies in olive oil, salt and pepper, and sausage or shrimp. It’s fast, delicious, and it’s hard to beat a roast veggie!

Tonight’s simple meal included polish sausage, sweet potatoes, onions and garlic, brussel sprouts and red peppers. The roasted garlic is my favorite part, I tossed an entire head in, leaving the cloves whole. I suppose I should try not to breath on anyone tomorrow.

Steamed veggies are well and good, but I’m not a big fan. I adore them roasted though. They caramelize and the flavor is enhanced so much.

I finished binge watching Bridgerton. I can’t wait for more seasons, it’s every bit as good as Downton Abbey! I think perhaps the regency dresses from that time period are my favorite. They are timelessly classic, can be dressed up or down with overlays, lace and beading, look amazingly comfortable, and incredibly elegant. I might be torn between regency and early 1900’s dresses. After the high neck period ended :).

I especially love this dress!

I might feel the urge to make a doll dress coming on!

    That looks so good. I think I will buy the oven.

      I love the oven Diane. While their website doesn’t accept coupons for 20% off Breville items, I had no problem using my coupon in store at Bed, Bath and Beyond, saving a hefty chunk off the oven. The size is what makes the oven so great! It will hold a standard 9×13 pan (as long as there’s not side handles), a 12 x 16 jelly roll pan, and a standard pizza pan. Not to mention a Dutch Oven!

      Isn’t is gorgeous? I absolutely LOVE that style.


    How long did you air fry or bake them and what temperature…looks delicious 😋

    1. tinksquared

      I used the air fry basket and air fry mode, at 425 degrees. 30 minutes total. I coated everything in olive oil, salt and pepper. Started the sweet potatoes for 10 minutes first, then added everything else for the last 20.

    Roasted veggies are our favorite! I even got my sister in law and niece to *love* brussels sprouts after trying our roasted ones. We mix it up occasionally using Tony Chachere’s or Zatarains in place of salt/pepper. We also like to drizzle a little balsamic vinegar after they come out of the oven. Ditto on Bridgerton – I’m looking forward to the next season, I hope it comes out soon. I also watched all 5 seasons of Poldark on Amazon Prime. It’s a totally different time period (post Revolutionary war), but very enjoyable.

      We loved Poldark so well we bought the DVD’s! Anything historical is hands down my favorite. The Tudors was pretty fantastic too.
      I love roasted Brussel sprouts with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper and parmesan!

    I discovered sheet pan meals about 8 months ago. They have become a staple and are our favorite meals. Simple, quick and healthy. I’m using my oven but need to look into the smart oven since summer is quickly approaching and I don’t like heating up the house. Depending upon the ingredients I’m using I will make foil packs and throw them on the grill.

      Aren’t they wonderful? I’ve only been doing them about a year myself. I can’t recommend the Breville Smart Oven air highly enough. It’s really a great little oven.

    Is yours a Breville Smart Air Fryer or a Breville Smart Air Convection Toaster oven? Also, if I bought one, it would have to sit on the counter underneath the overhead cabinets. Does it need to sit out in the open or would it be safe underneath the overhead cabinets? My space is limited.
