  • Ivory: Looks yummy, going to try this out. September 13, 2017 at 11:06am Reply

  • Douglas: I think any recipe that contains parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme should be required to list them in that order. Sounds great though, I think I’ll try this soon. September 19, 2017 at 3:56pm Reply

    • Douglas: Tried this earlier this week, was incredible. Mixed the leftovers with eggs the next morning into frittata that was also amazing. October 1, 2017 at 11:18am Reply

    • Jaclyn: So glad you think so Jackie! September 20, 2017 at 11:15pm Reply

  • Trish: What are your recommendations for fresh vs frozen and thawed brussel sprouts? September 28, 2017 at 10:08pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: I’ve never cooked with frozen brussels sprouts but I’m assuming they wouldn’t roast the same as fresh. Frozen vegetables are usually blanched and you usually end up with excess liquid once they thaw and a soft texture so if possible here I’d definitely go with fresh. October 10, 2017 at 10:34am Reply

  • SF: This is DELICIOUS. I used a mix of smoked chirazzo turkey sausage and sweet Italian sausage. Wowee. (Probably ruined my pan though…LOL… but what a way to go!) September 30, 2017 at 10:23am Reply

    • Jaclyn: Glad you liked it! Thanks for leaving a review! September 30, 2017 at 10:54pm Reply

  • Cooking mama to 7: I’m making this for tonight supper. Using brussal sprouts, diced taters, blend of carrots broccoli and cauliflower along with our thick sausage. I’m laying veggies out as they are frozen. Can’t wait for this new meal 😀 October 8, 2017 at 10:10am Reply

    • Jaclyn: I hope you and your family love it! October 8, 2017 at 10:58am Reply

  • Amy L.: Sometimes I like to go all-veg for my main courses. Does anyone know if veggie sausages can stand this kind of high-temp cooking? Or would they need to be browned separately and added at the end? Thanks. :) October 13, 2017 at 1:35pm Reply

  • Lyndsay: This meal was AMAZING. My boyfriend even devoured it and pointed out what a great lunch it was. October 17, 2017 at 12:12pm Reply

  • Courtney: I LOVE this idea! Simple and not a ton of dirty dishes! Only if my dude liked sweet potatoes :( Think I could substitute butternut squash? October 19, 2017 at 3:01pm Reply

    • Autumn: I subbed with baking potatoes. I bet red would be good also. January 3, 2018 at 4:23pm Reply

  • Amanda: How many sweet potatoes make 16oz? And how many Brussels sprouts? October 19, 2017 at 6:00pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Usually 2 medium or 1 very large sweet potato is about 1 lb. Then on the brussels sprouts I’m guessing about 20. October 29, 2017 at 9:50pm Reply

  • Jaclyn: I’d go with butternut squash it would also be delicious here! Hope you both love it! October 19, 2017 at 11:22pm Reply

  • Kellie: Do you fix anything else with it? Like side dishes? October 22, 2017 at 6:34pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: No that’s one thing I really like about this is that it’s a meal in one :). You can’t go wrong with fresh French or sourdough bread though. October 29, 2017 at 9:46pm Reply

  • Leah Ryder: Made this & my whole family loved it! I added some craisins and sliced almonds on top & it was so yummy. I baked for 10 minutes longer than suggested time & it was perfect. No left overs ! Lol October 24, 2017 at 5:49am Reply

    • Jaclyn: Glad the fam enjoyed it Leah! Thanks for commenting! October 24, 2017 at 12:07pm Reply

  • Judi: OH, my amazing…you never cease to amaze me with your recipes…Candied Almonds cooking now, and did this last night….NO LEFTOVERS…that speaks for itself and they asked for a repeat of the dinner again tonight….that has never happened….thank you…perfect winter meal!!! I did the butternut squash substitute and turkey kielbasa… December 8, 2017 at 3:03pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Thanks for your feedback Judi! December 11, 2017 at 11:15am Reply

  • Cherie: This was a hit with the whole family, including a 12 and 10 y.o., and so healthy too. I used whatever veggies I had left from a party vegetable tray: cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, and a large Gala apples. Took another reviewer’s suggestion and sprinkled sliced almonds and craisins over everything, and cooked an additional 10 minutes. Yum-a-rama. I do think there was a bit too much olive oil on the bottom of the pan, so I will decrease that next time. I wasn’t sure how apples, garlic and olive oil would come out but we were pleasantly surprised. I made extra hoping there would be leftovers for lunches the next day, but no such luck… January 10, 2018 at 7:54am Reply

    • Jaclyn: Thanks for your feedback Cherie! January 17, 2018 at 12:07pm Reply

  • Amanda: Fabulous recipe! The first time I made this, I used frozen butternut squash, frozen brussel sprouts and a regular onion because I didnt have the ingredients fresh or the red onion. I also forgot to crush the rosemary. My husband and I absolutely loved it but the toddler didnt like the little “sticks.” I made it a second time with fresh veggies and left rosemary out. It was also fantastic. Tonight, my husband is making it himself :) I love how easy and versatile this recipe is.

    Great recipe! Thank you for sharing! January 14, 2018 at 3:45pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Thanks for letting me know the family enjoyed it Amanda! January 17, 2018 at 12:54pm Reply
