Sheet Pan Sausage & Shrim Jambalaya

It’s hard to believe sheet pan meals are a new thing in my world.  Why didn’t I think of this sooner?!?  It really is the most convenient way to get a nutritious and tasty dinner on the table fast.  The combinations are endless and clean-up is a breeze!

One of our new favorites is this sheet pan take on Jambalaya.  While it may not be an authentic jambalaya recipe, it hits all the right notes…sausage, shrimp, peppers, and plenty of spice. Serving it over rice (or cauliflower rice) completes the package.

For Whole30 plans, look for a compliant sausage with no added sugars.  There are several brands of chicken and andouille sausage that would work well here.  I have also made this with an all-natural turkey sausage with great results.

For this recipe, I made my own Cajun seasoning blend.  I love using these Homemade Seasoning Blends to spice up my meals in different ways (and control the sodium level) but feel free to use a store bought Cajun or Creole blend if you prefer.

Tips for Sheet Pan Shrimp & Sausage Jambalaya

Invest in a set of good sheet pans!  I love this set of three that come in different sizes.

The ingredients for this meal could easily be prepared and frozen in a large freezer bag.  Just remove from the freezer in the morning, thaw, and bake for dinner!  Better yet, double the recipe, cook one tonight and freeze a batch for later!

If your family isn’t a fan of lots of spice, omit or reduce the cayenne pepper in the spice blend.

Build Meal Prep bowls with servings of cauliflower or white rice for an easy grab-and-go lunch.
