If you guys love my “dump-and-bake” dinners, then you’ll love this one too! We’re basically just dumping our ingredients on one tray and popping it in the oven…which means that it’s super-simple, and you won’t have many dishes to wash at the end.

What is A Low Country Boil?

If you’re not familiar with the traditional Low Country Boil that Louisiana is famous for, it’s a seafood dish that combines shrimp (or crawfish), sausage, corn, and potatoes. It’s a one-pot meal that’s often cooked outside to serve a large crowd at social gatherings.

There are many variations of the dish and it’s super easy to adapt with different veggies and seafood.

Technically, instead of a Low Country Boil, I should probably call the recipe a “Low Country BROIL.” We’re putting a twist on the classic recipe, and we’re not actually boiling anything! Instead, the oven does the work for us!

I’ve transformed the classic into an easy weeknight dinner that you can adjust to feed your family of 4, that you can scale down to serve 2, or that you can multiply to feed a party.

There’s no outdoor campfire required, and I think that the crispy ingredients are even better than their boiled counterparts!

This idea came to me last fall when I shared my recipe for our favorite 3-Ingredient Crispy Seasoned Potatoes. Y’all LOVE those potatoes, so I knew that you would appreciate an entire meal that cooks on the tray as your potatoes!

Since Keith loves to season his corn on the cob with Old Bay as well, this Sheet Pan Low Country Boil instantly came to mind. It combines the Old Bay corn and the potatoes, along with crispy sausage and tender shrimp.

This seriously melts in your mouth!!!

Serving Suggestions

This low country boil is just bursting with flavors and would go great with some cornbread or a biscuit on the side.

If you’d prefer something fresher and low carb then go for a big fresh salad which would also work really well!

Top Tips For Making the Best Low Country Boil

  • I used a package of frozen Bird’s Eye Mini Corn on the Cob, which came with 6 mini ears (so I didn’t have to cut them in half). If using frozen corn, thaw first before using it in the recipe.
  • I like to use Jumbo shrimp (16-20 shrimp per pound) for this recipe, since it’s larger and has a slightly longer cooking time than smaller shrimp. This way it doesn’t get overcooked while the other ingredients finish baking.
  • Cooking Just for Two? Cut the ingredients in half! The baking instructions remain the same.
  • Leftovers will store well in the fridge for 2-3 days and can be eaten cold or reheated. You can even use leftovers to make a hearty soup or stew.

  1. This looks amazing, Blair! I’ve never made a boil before, but I do love all of the ingredients and have got to try this! Love that you made it an easy sheet pan meal! My husband would gobble this right up. Pinning this beauty!

    1. Thank you, Gayle! It’s so delicious — my husband LOVES this meal! I hope you’ll give it a try, and thanks for the pin!

  2. My kids don’t like seafood (I don’t know who’s kids these are). Could I use chicken? If so I plan to cook both!!

    1. Hi, Kathy! Yep, you can definitely use chicken. You can substitute with an equal amount of diced chicken breast. The chicken will require 20-25 minutes to cook, so you will want to add it to the pan after the first 10 minutes of baking. You can also double the amount of sausage if you prefer, and just omit the ingredient that you don’t care for. Enjoy! 🙂

  3. OMG this came out soon good! It was delish Blair and the entire family enjoyed it! Since I have little kids I used less of the spice on the shrimp and boiled them their potato but the rest of us loved the recipe !!!
