Sheet Pan Ham and Sweet Potatoes Ingredients
For this easy sheet pan meal you will start with two medium sweet potatoes that have been peeled and diced into roughly one inch pieces and a pound of shredded brussels sprouts. You will need two to three cups of chopped or diced ham.
This can be store-bought pre-cooked ham, or leftover from a previous meal. Beyond that you only need a tablespoon of minced garlic, four tablespoons of avocado oil, and a teaspoon of sea salt.
Prepping and Cooking Instructions
You’ll start by first preheating your oven to 425 degrees F. If you haven’t done so already, shred the brussels sprouts, peel and dice the sweet potatoes, and chop or dice the ham, and add all of the ingredients onto a large sheet pan.
Drizzle the oil and sprinkle the salt and garlic over the top and use your hands to gently toss it all together until everything has a light coating.
Pro tip: If you want to save time on cleanup, you can line the sheet pan with parchment paper before you add the ingredients. I recommend crumpling up the paper and flattening it into the sheet pan so it doesn’t curl, as well
Serving and Storing Instructions
Serve this sheet pan meal on its own or pair with eggs and fresh fruit or yogurt for a tasty breakfast. Add your favorite breakfast sausage or an English muffin or toast as well.
Store your ham and Brussels sprouts by letting it cool to room temperature and placing it in an airtight container or individual meal prep containers and refrigerate. It will keep well for about 5 day refrigerated.
Personally, for this recipe, I like to use the individual meal prep containers and have an simple breakfast that reheats super easily on hand and ready to go!
