I've come across a number of sheet pan recipes, and finally decided to try one. I looked at a number that involved shrimp and chicken sausage and took bits and pieces from several recipes to create my own version.

SHEET PAN SHRIMP AND SAUSAGE DINNER
There's a bit of prep at the beginning cutting up the items, and because I was using a number of different items that would take longer to cook than others, realize that the cooking process to this recipe works in stages. Total cook time is 50-60 minutes.
5 small yukon gold potatoes
1 pkg. chicken with apple sausage
1 lb. large shrimp
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp. honey
couple squirts of lemon juice
1. Cut all items (with the exception of the shrimp) into bite size pieces
2. Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees
3. Using a large plastic bag, place the potatoes in the bag, add some canola oil, kosher salt, dried rosemary and pepper. Seal and shake to coat the potatoes.
4. Spray the section of the sheet pan that the potatoes will be placed on. Cook for 20 minutes
5. In the meantime, coat the broccoli and cauliflower with the same flavor combination (or add other ingredients that suit you). Add to the sheet pan (I did not spray any other portion of the pan during the rest of the baking) and cook for an additional 20 minutes.
6. Using a separate bag, add the shrimp with a little canola oil and some Old Bay Seasoning and pepper to your liking (I probably put in 2 tsp. of Old Bay and 1 tsp. of pepper).
7. Add both the sausage and shrimp to the pan and cook for approximately 10-15 minutes, watching the shrimp to ensure they are adequately cooked.
I chose to make a dipping sauce as listed above, which I thought blended well with everything, including the veggies. My husband chose to drizzle the sauce over his entire plate. You choose....or go naked....whatever, floats your boat.
