When you’ve had a long work day, with no plan for dinner, it can be easy to choose something unhealthy. Grabbing some take-out, ordering pizza, or cooking from a box are tempting options to turn to.

But there are healthier options for an easy last minute dinner that’s ready in about 30 minutes.

One of my favorite last minute weeknight meals is a sheet pan dinner, like this one made with Dew Drop Cabbage and sausage.

Sheet pan dinners are where everything for the meal is piled onto one big sheet pan and roasted together.

We always seem to have carrots and zucchini in the fridge, and I also had some Dew Drop Cabbage. Since cabbage and sausage are such a classic combination, I decided on chicken sausage for our protein.

Eric picked up the sausage on his way home, and I quickly threw this Dew Drop Cabbage and sausage dinner together.


Did you notice the unique pointy shape of the cabbage steaks in the cabbage and sausage sheet pan photos?

That’s because these are the Dew Drop Cabbages from Tanimura & Antle.

I just love the petite size and sweet flavor of these cabbages. They always fit easily in the fridge and are easy to incorporate into any recipe.

I will typically just slice them in half, or into quarters. Just 1-3 cuts and the prep is done! Whether you’re making cabbage and sausage, a cabbage salad, or coleslaw, I can’t recommend the Dew Drop Cabbage enough.

The sausages you use for this dinner are completely up to you. We really like chicken sausages and used chicken sausage stuffed with mozzarella and artichokes.

But you could use turkey, beef, or pork sausage as well. You could even go with Italian sausage or smoked sausages for your Dew Drop Cabbage and sausage dinner!

Whatever sausage you decide on, make sure to check their oven cooking temperatures and times. This recipe is really forgiving, and easy to adapt. Our sausage needed to cook just 10 minutes at 350F.

I started roasting the veggies before the sausages, knowing they would need to cook longer.


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Start by slicing your produce. Cut a couple peeled carrots into thick circles and slice a zucchini into half circles.
  3. Slice two Dew Drop Cabbages in half, lengthwise through the stem base. Then slice each half lengthwise through the base again so you get 8 cabbage steaks.
  4. Arrange the cabbage steaks, carrots, zucchini, and some grape or cherry tomatoes on a large sheet pan.

  5. Spray with olive oil and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper.
  6. Roast the vegetables for 10 minutes, then remove from oven.
  7. Nestle your whole sausages among the veggies. Return sheet pan to the oven for another 10 minutes (or for as long as your sausages need to cook).
  8. Switch your oven to BROIL for five minutes to add a slight char to your cabbage and sausage.
  9. At this point you can eat your dinner as-is. But I recommend you whip up a creamy lemon parmesan dressing to drizzle over everything.

If you don’t have fresh lemons, you can skip the lemon zest and use bottled lemon juice. It’s still a delicious dressing that goes so well with cabbage.

  1. Zest and juice two large lemons.
  2. Place olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, grated Parmesan, Dijon mustard, minced garlic, and black pepper in a blender or food processor.
  3. Blend until smooth and creamy.
  4. You can pour over the whole cabbage and sausage sheet pan straight from the oven. Or serve the dressing on the side for people to dress individual servings.
