Roasted gnocchi and brussels sprouts is an easy to put together dinner with only a sheet pan and and handful of ingredients. Easily vegetarian by simply leaving out the bacon!
No precooking of gnocchi or bacon for this easy sheet pan dinner!
You use shelf stable gnocchi uncooked and place the bacon on the sheet pan uncooked and it all cooks together for the a crispy, delicious dinner.
This is how easy this sheet pan gnocchi and brussels sprouts is to make:
- Toss ingredients in a bit of oil (minus cheese and bacon )
- Dump onto sheet pan, top with the bacon.
- Bake for 20 minutes, add cheese, finish baking.
Why bake gnocchi vs boil it?
For this recipe, you don't have to boil your gnocchi because 1 - why dirty another pot if you don't have to, and 2 - the texture is far better baked vs boiled!
Can I meal prep this?
You can. When you microwave reheat the texture of the gnocchi will be a bit softer. I highly suggest pan frying this for reheat if you can.
Can I add chicken to this?
Yes, you can add chicken. You may want to reduce the veggies or split into 2 baking sheets to prevent over crowding.
You can leave the chicken breasts whole on the sheet, but just make sure they are cooked to 165F.
Do not over crowd the chicken if you do decide to add it.
Can this be prepped ahead of time?
- Yes, add the veggies, garlic and oil to an air tight container.
- Leave the bacon, gnocchi and cheese out until you cook the dish.
- Can I use frozen gnocchi? - yes, the cook time may have to be increased by a few minutes.
- Can I use different veggies? - yes, the key to sheet pan recipes is to use similar cook time veggies, or cut longer cooking veggies into smaller pieces.
- Can I make this vegetarian? Of course! Simple leave the bacon out and add 1 tablespoon of additional oil.

So good! A new recipe on rotation! Easy to prep and quick for busy nights
So yummy! And so easy!!
This is a really great, simple recipe! I will definitely make this again as it was quick and easy, the most time consuming part was just cutting the brussels sprouts! The baked gnocchi is such a great texture.

So easy, quick, and delicious! I wonder if putting the sheet pan closer to the the top of the oven would help the bacon crisp up more, or would that make everything else cook too quickly? I like crispy bacon and I had to keep adding time to try to crisp it up some more.
