Have you ever had roasted fennel before? If not, you need to try it immediately! It mellows out the licorice flavor, and it gets soft and caramelized and it oh so delicious.
It pairs perfectly with sausage! I love using it in the Whole30 + Keto Sheet Pan Sausage + Fennel.

Keto Sheet Pan Sausage Dinner
I absolutely love sheet pan dinners! You add all your veggies and protein on the sheet pan raw, then the oven does all the work for you. Perfect for busy weeknights, or if you’re like me and have a toddler who wants to be held at all times when you’re cooking.
I love how the sausages infuses the fennel with even more flavor as it is roasting. Sausage and fennel pair very well together.
Serving Sheet Pan Sausage + Fennel
I had broccoli on hand when I made this, so added that to the sheet pan to roast as well. But feel free to use whatever vegetables you have on hand! Cauliflower, green beans, radishes, etc.
Nothing better than sausage and mustard, so serve it up with some mustard on the side if you have it! I also love it with True Made Foods Ketchup (the best keto friendly ketchup EVER!)

Whole30 + Keto Sheet Pan Sausage + Fennel
- 1 pound sausage, I used a smoked beef sausage. Any type of chicken, beef or pork sausage will work!
- 2 fennel bulbs, chopped (watch the recipe video if you've never chopped a fennel bulb before)
- 1 head of broccoli, florets and stems chopped
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- salt + pepper
- Preheat your oven to 425ºF. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup.
- Toss the fennel bulb in 1 tablespoon olive oil. Toss and spread in an even layer in the top half of the sheet pan. Season with salt and pepper. Place the sausage on top of the fennel.
- Toss the broccoli in the remaining tablespoon of olive oil. Spread in an even layer in the bottom half of the sheet pan. Season with salt and pepper.
- Roast for 30-40 minutes until the fennel and broccoli are soft and getting crispy edges, flipping the sausage half way through.
- Serve warm with dijon mustard and/or True Made Foods Ketchup.
- Leftovers will keep for at least 5 days in an airtight container in the fridge, or 6 months in the freezer.

So easy and delicious! A great way to work in those “uncommon” veggies. Never used fennel before but it cooked so nicely with the sausage. I added some asparagus in the last 20 minutes of cooking to add another veggie choice! It felt good making a whole food healthy dinner for my family of 5 🧡
I too was a little skeptical of fennel but I sure have become a big fan of it. I also love the way it pairs with sausage. Adding asparagus is a genius idea.
Made this with Hatch Green Chile Chicken Sausages from Sam’s. YUM!!
Oh my, making it with Hatch Green Chili Sausages sounds fantastic Ashley!
Can a person use frozen broccoli in this recipe or for that matter when ever I see fresh veggies in your recipes can I use frozen? I live over an hour from the grocery store and even in normal times aka prior to covid19 I only go to the grocery store once a week and sometimes longer between visits making frozen veggies a bit easier to keep.
Yes you can use frozen broccoli in the sheet pan dinner recipe Lura. During this pandemic I have cooked a lot of frozen broccoli and have been amazed at how delicious it is! I always used to purchase fresh and didn’t give much thought to frozen, so I am pleasantly surprised. Here’s how you cook the frozen broccoli. Pour the frozen broccoli into a bowl (no need to thaw) and toss with olive oil and a bit of salt and pepper. Roast at 400 for about 20 minutes. It’s perfect every time!
I sure hope you like it! Happy cooking!
First time eating roasted fennel. Added radishes (first time roasting those, too) and Brussels sprouts to the pan b/c that’s what I had on hand. And all I had was kielbasa, so that subbed for the sausage. It was fabulous. Looking forward to trying it with sausage.
What an incredibly versatile recipe!! Just rotate the veggies and protein and the possibilities are endless. Thank you for creating the blueprint! 💜
I am so glad you liked my sheet pan dinner Merrill. What a fantastic dinner you must have had. I love that you made roasted fennel and roasted radishes for the first time and liked them! You are so right, the veggie combinations are endless!
Well, this was easy and really good. I’ve never had roasted fennel before and I really liked the mild flavor. I had chicken Italian sausage and it went very well with the fennel. Good flavor plus easy cleanup makes for a great work night meal. Thanks for another winner!!!
I’m so happy you liked the roasted fennel, it’s one of my favorite veggies Sarah. The easy clean up makes this a win, win!
