Cajun Sausage Sheet Pan

I’ve made many Cajun recipes (see my Cajun Chicken Wings for example!) but I think I have found my new favorite. Those Cajun Chicken wings are absolutely delicious, but omg, this Sheet Pan Cajun Sausage dinner is going to blow your mind!

Dream with me for a minute. Imagine a homemade, easy dinner recipe that uses one pan and is ready in just 30 minutes. I don’t know about you, but I am all in! Enter, delicious pork or chicken andouille sausage, cooked shrimp, bell peppers & onions, and Brussell sprouts all tossed in a simple homemade Cajun seasoning made from spices you have on hand! Served over cauliflower rice, this meal is delicious, low carb, and healthy.

Ingredient Swaps & Recipe Notes

Andouille sausage: While this delicious Cajun sausage might seem hard to find, it’s actually very common! You can find it at your local grocery store. Andouille Cajun sausage is typically made of pork, so be sure to check the label to make sure you’re getting pork sausage instead of an alternative like chicken sausage.

Chicken sausage: One great thing nowadays is that many brands make chicken sausage instead of pork sausage. It’s a healthy swap and tastes great if you’re want to skip the pork! Brands like Aidell’s Cajun Style Andouille chicken sausage can be found at your local grocery store or click here for a store locator!

Cajun seasoning: The best part about my homemade seasoning is that it’s just the combination of common spices that make it Cajun! It just calls for these 8 spices below. Check the Commonly Asked Questions section below to find some helpful notes on Cajun seasoning in a pinch!

  • paprika
  • garlic powder
  • salt
  • pepper
  • onion powder
  • oregano
  • cayenne pepper
  • dried thyme

Bell peppers: I used red, yellow, and green bell peppers. Feel free to use your favorite colors. 

Heat: If you’re looking for a milder temperature, use less cayenne pepper. If you want to turn up the heat, add more!

Tips & Tricks

Storage: IF you have leftovers, and I really mean if because your whole family is going to love this sheet pan recipe! Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container for up to 4 days in the refrigerator. I recommend storing the leftover cauliflower rice separately for reheating purposes.

Reheating: Heat the andouille sausage, shrimp, and veggies in a skillet over medium heat for 5-7 minutes or in the microwave for 2-3 minutes. Make a fresh batch of frozen cauliflower rice or heat separately in the microwave for 1.5 minutes. Then combine and enjoy!

Freezer: If you want to freeze your leftovers for future meals, store the andouille sausage, shrimp, and veggies in an airtight container for up to 3 months in the freezer. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator and then follow the reheating instructions above. I recommend making a new batch of cauliflower rice.

Meal Prep: This recipe works so well with meal prep! Make your sheet pan cajun sausage, shrimp, and veggies, then make the cauliflower rice and combine in meal prep containers, and store in the fridge. Follow the reheating instructions above. Lunch for the week! Woo hoo!

Popular Cajun Side Dishes: While my Cajun sausage recipe calls for low carb cauliflower rice, here are some super popular Cajun sides that would go great with this cooked shrimp and sausage! FYI, not all are diet-friendly!

  • Red Beans and Rice
  • Cajun Dirty Rice
  • Fried Okra
  • Cajun Hush Puppies

Commonly Asked Questions

Substitute for Cajun seasoning: If you’re in a pinch and you don’t have all the ingredients to make homemade Cajun seasoning, you can always buy Cajun seasoning from the grocery store. Brands like McCormick and many store-bought brands have Cajun seasoning blends that are easy to use!

Help! I’m missing a few spices for the Cajun Seasoning! If you can’t make it to the store and are just missing a few spices to make the complete Cajun spice recipe, you can omit many of them. Paprika and/or cayenne, garlic powder, oregano, salt, and pepper are the most important, and many of these are kitchen staples!

What else can I make with Cajun Sausage? Cajun recipes are seriously so yummy, right? That kick is just right, and andouille sausage is mouthwatering good.
