I have become a fan of things I can make in one pan. Sadly, my family doesn’t always love soups or casseroles. The logic is a little varied between all of them. They don’t like everything altogether? Can’t control the things that they don’t like that end up on their plate? Who knows?

So, sheet pan meals seem to meet both of our requirements: they get to have separate mains and sides and I get to have everything cooked at once.

Win-Win!


This delicious sheet pan dinner is easy enough to pull together for a fast weeknight dinner. It tastes like you’ve been cooking all day long but only takes around 30 minutes.
