Ingredients Needed

For the turkey:

  • Turkey breast tenderloins– always check that your meat hasn’t been injected with any allergens. But, this should be allergen friendly and safe in general
  • Garlic powder– we trust McCormick spices. You can buy in bulk on Amazon or other online retailers.
  • Dried rosemary
  • Dried thyme
  • Salt and black pepper– we like to use kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper

For the vegetables:

  • Sweet potato
  • Sweet onion
  • Celery
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Olive oil- feel free to trade this out for other cooking oil, grapeseed oil is a popular one we like
  • Garlic powder
  • Dried rosemary
  • Dried thyme
  • Salt and black pepper
  • Dried cranberries
  • Pecan halves– you can omit these if you have a nut allergy

For the croutons:

  • Gluten and dairy free bread – use your favorite bread. Our go-to is Udi’s Whole Grain Sandwich Bread found at Costco and other retailers. Many also enjoy Canyon Bakehouse to make croutons and use for other bread needs. But really, any brand of gluten and dairy-free bread will make wonderful croutons. You will need about 12 slices of bread to make some yummy croutons with.
  • Dairy-free butter – we enjoy using the gluten, dairy, and soy-free Earth Balance Buttery Sticks
  • Dried thyme – always double-check that dried herbs and spices are gluten and dairy free. The McCormick brand is known for being safe.
  • Dried parsley flakes
  • Garlic powder
  • Kosher salt
  • Ground black pepper

How To Make The Turkey Breast Sheet Pan Dinner 

  1. Preheat the oven to 400F and gather all of your ingredients. Line your rimmed sheet pan with aluminum foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a mixing bowl, mix the seasonings for the turkey and coat the turkey breast tenderloins using a pastry brush if necessary. Place the turkey breast tenderloins in the middle of the baking sheet.
  3. In another large bowl, add the sweet potato cubes, onion, celery, and brussel sprouts. Drizzle with olive oil and toss to coat the vegetables. Sprinkle with the seasonings from your mixing bowl and toss vegetables again. Transfer the vegetables to the large baking sheet around the turkey but in a single layer. Cover the meat and vegetables with aluminum foil and bake in the oven for 35 minutes.
  4. While that cooks, prepare 2 large baking trays with a nonstick mat or parchment paper; set aside. Then place 12 slices of bread on a large cutting board.
  5. Next in a medium size mixing bowl, whisk together the melted dairy free butter and seasonings.
  6. Then with a silicone pastry brush, lightly brush both sides of the bread with the butter mixture.
  7. Cube the bread into small, even squares so they bake evenly, about 12 cubes per bread slice.
  8. When the timer sounds, carefully remove the rimmed baking sheet pan from the oven and remove the cover. Add the croutons and pecans over the top of the vegetables around the turkey. Return the sheet pan to the oven, uncovered, for an additional 10 to 15 minutes or until the croutons are crispy on top.
  9. Sprinkle the sheet pan with cranberries, slice the turkey and serve. Enjoy!

FAQ

What other veggies could I use with this sheet pan meal?

There are so many delicious options to mix things up a little when it comes to this sheet pan turkey dinner recipe.

We suggest adding or substituting some of the veggies for green beans, broccoli florets, zucchini, and mushrooms. Make it your own and just enjoy it. 

What other meat could I use?

This is a really versatile method of cooking meat and veggies. You could use chicken breasts instead, or even cook up turkey or chicken legs instead.

The flavors and vegetables will also work well with fish. However, you may need to cook the veggies first as fish won’t need as long in the oven. 

Can I use frozen turkey?

Sure! Our advice would be to marinate the turkey and then bake in the oven for a few minutes before adding the veggies to the sheet pan.

Increasing the cooking time of the boneless turkey breast will enable the meat to become room temperature as the other ingredients and cook everything at the same time.
