Sheet pan bratwurst and sweet potatoes is an easy dinner recipe where the meat, toppings, and side dish cook all on one pan. The bratwurst brown and ‘crisp’ up while the sliced onion softens beautifully. Stone ground mustard and warm spices flavor the roasted sweet potatoes for a complementary and delicious side dish.
