Creole Mixed Grill Sheet Pan Dinner
I love easy fuss-free dinners for my busy weeknights. It just seems that 5 o’clock rolls around way before it should and I haven’t even thought about dinner. That’s when simple dinners with minimum prep really come in handy.
This sheet pan dinner came together with what I had sitting around in my fridge and freezer. And, I don’t know about you, but I definitely don’t want dinner to just be a ho-hum,”oh it’s leftovers” night meal. Believe me, this sheet pan dinner will taste like anything but leftovers! And bonus, it’s gluten-free, Whole30 and, if you eliminate the potatoes, low carb as well.
Substitutions you can make to suit your family’s tastes
- Don’t have creole spice? You can make your own, see recipe in notes, or use Old Bay seasoning as a substitute.
- Chorizo too spicy for the family? You can either omit it or add andouille or mild Italian sausage to the mix.
- Seasonal vegetables that work well for sheet pan dinners include broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, yellow squash and bell peppers’
- Sweet potatoes will also work in place of white potatoes or leave out for a low carb option.
