Sheet Tray Cooking: Chicken Sausage Stuffed Peppers

   Recipe By: Chef Lisa A. Heidelberg

Cook Time: 15-20 mins

Serves: 4-6 ppl


  • 1lb bulk chicken sausage or removed from casing. (I used an Erie gem, Larry’s Central Market’s signature chicken sausage which is stuffed with a mix of chicken, spinach, sundried tomatoes, cheeses and spices. DELICIOUS!)  
  • 1 Bag of multi colored mini sweet peppers, tops removed and peppers sliced open like a book lengthwise.
    • Don’t worry if you cut all the way through and get 2 halves
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
  • 1-2lbs of potatoes, sliced in half (Yukon, red or baby potatoes)
  • 1 tsp house blend (salt, pepper, granulated garlic & onion)
  • ½ tsp Italian seasoning
  • Cherry tomatoes, optional


  • Preheat your oven to 425.
  • Cover a baking sheet tray with aluminum foil and mist with cooking spray
  • Load each pepper with your chicken sausage and place them on one side of the baking sheet.
  • Lay your halved potatoes on the other side of the tray with cut side down, season potatoes with house blend and drizzle with EVOO (extra virgin olive oil).
  • Place tray in hot oven and bake until sausage is cooked, peppers are a little charred and potatoes are crispy on cut side and still fluffy inside. Should take about 20-25 mins. Enjoy!

Chef’s Note: The mini peppers make a wonderful heavy hors d’oeuvre for a dinner party. They are delicious hot or room temp. For a smoky kick, try filling jalapeno peppers with sausage and wrap with bacon then bake until crispy!
