Why You’ll Love Sheet Pan BBQ Meatballs and Vegetables

I’m on a sheet pan dinner roll and this Sheet Pan BBQ Meatballs and Vegetables recipe is my latest masterpiece! This dish is like a modern take on meatloaf, and it isn’t any harder than the traditional way of making meatloaf – if anything I would say it’s easier!

Since we are sticking to just one pan, there’s no separate cleanup for the potatoes and green beans (thank goodness). Instead, we are going to roast everything!

The potatoes will go into the oven first to get a head start because they will take the longest to bake, but be sure to stir them once during baking so they can get crispy all over! While they’re baking, get the green beans and meatballs ready so that when the potatoes come out you can quickly put everything on the baking sheet and back into the oven. During the last 5 minutes of baking, brush those nice little meatballs with bbq sauce.

Now that’s an awesome dinner everyone can enjoy!

There are two delicious components to this recipe: meat and vegetables. The meatballs are simple to make, and you probably already have all of the ingredients! 

The veggies are simple as pie too, but if you have broccoli on hand instead of green beans, go ahead and make the swap. Do what makes life easier on you!

Step-By-Step Instructions

Step 1: Preheat

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Step 2: Prepare Vegetables

Place the potatoes on a large baking sheet and drizzle them with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and toss to coast. Bake them for 20 minutes, stirring once. Meanwhile, in a medium-sized bowl, toss the green beans with olive oil, salt, and pepper then set them aside. 

Step 3: Form Meatballs and Roast

In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, onion, oats (or breadcrumbs), garlic, egg, and milk. Form the mixture into 2 – 2 ½ inch meatballs and place them on the baking sheet with the potatoes once the potatoes come out at 20 minutes. Add on the green beans as well and then bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the meat is no longer pink. In the last 5 minutes of cooking, brush each meatball with bbq sauce.

FAQ

Can I use parchment paper to line my sheet pan?

You can use parchment paper or aluminum foil to line your sheet pan! It’ll help reduce the amount of food that sticks to the pan itself.

Should I let my meatballs rest before baking them?

You don’t have to let them rest, no. The only time I’d recommend doing that is if they’re going into a fryer.

Why do I need to put milk in my meatballs?

You add milk to meatballs to make them nice and moist! We don’t want a dry meatball, do we?

    So glad I finally tried this…..we have a new family favorite now, and my husband says I can make it “all the time” as far as he’s concerned! Love the fact that it goes together quickly and cuts way down on all the dishes involved in making it. Winner!

      • I know this is lazy, but if I use frozen meatballs, should I thaw first, or toss on frozen, but at which stage? Wondered if you had ever played around with that? The whole sheet pan idea looks great! 🙂 Thanks!

        • Sorry I didn’t get back to you sooner! You are not lazy, just using what you have! I would toss them on frozen at the very beginning. Not sure exactly how long they will cook but that’s what I would do.

    Ok so I was googling to find this recipe again and couldn’t believe the lack of ratings compared to others. YOU WILL NOT REGRET MAKING THIS. my husband loves it and it is a bi monthly staple in our household. I use a couple tbsp of the bbq sauce and a tad more bread crumbs in the meatballs but I can not express how much we love these!!

    • Put the potatoes and green beans on the pan and cook together for 20 minutes then while they are cooking get your meatballs ready. Remember to stir the vegetables once while they are cooking. 🙂 After the vegetables have cooked for 20 minutes take out the pan, stir the vegetables and add on the meatballs then continue to cook for 25-30 more minutes or until meatballs are done. In the last 5 minutes of cooking brush the meatballs with bbq sauce. Hope you enjoy!! 🙂

        • I am sorry you are correct on adding the green beans with the meatballs. Sorry if I made that last reply a little confusing rushing the kiddos off to school this morning, lol. Thanks again! 🙂
