These 14 Easy Sheet Pan Dinners are ready in 30 minutes or less and are ideal for busy weeknights. One pan means clean-up is easy, too!
Sheet pan dinners are amazing. Seriously, if you want a quick and easy dinner without a lot of work, this is definitely the way to go. Just fix it, forget it, and in 30 minutes or less, dinner is served!
I don't know who started the trend, that person is my hero. When I first heard about making an entire dinner on a baking sheet, I was hooked.
See, we have a large family, and I do a lot of cooking for the blog, which means we have more than enough dishes to wash. And I really, really hate doing dishes. Really! Then last year, our dishwasher decided it was overworked and underpaid, so it quit. Just like that!
We practically lived on sheet pan meals for a few months until we got the dishwasher fixed, and now I have a small collection of these easy dinners. So, with the kids heading back to school and the busy season starting up again, I have a nice roundup of one sheet pan dinners for you.
Tips for Cooking Dinner on One Sheet Pan
- Use a sturdy baking sheet with rims and not a cookie sheet
- Line the sheet pan with heavy duty aluminum foil
- Apply cooking spray or oil before adding food
The last two dinners in this roundup are actually made in a baking dish. I included them because all you really need to round out the meal is a salad. You can serve them over rice if you want, but we usually keep things light. So these are still one pan dinners, even if they aren't made on a sheet pan!
