Sheet Pan Brussels Sprout Chicken Sausage Pepper Onion and Kale Puff Bake

IMG_9040.jpg

Around the Holidays, I often find myself craving simple veggie filled meals among all of the wine, cheese and tasty sweet treats. I also find that the last thing I want to be doing is planning/making complicated meals that take away from time spent with family and friends (or just relaxing!). This sheet pan bake is the perfect weeknight dinner. It's loaded with high fiber veggies, lean protein and Dr Praeger's kale puffs made with red bliss potatoes for a flavorful and balanced meal.

If brussels sprouts aren't you're thang, you could totally sub any vegetables you like here (cabbage or cauliflower would also be delish). This meal is super versatile, but I do highly recommended the fresh parsley + pomegranate seeds as a topping because it takes the flavors in this meal to the next level (with very minimal effort). 

Bottom line: I could eat this meal every day and totally plan on doing so for the rest of the week. So excited for you to try!
