When it comes to cooking family meals throughout the week, the sheet pan meal is one of the easiest. They’re so simple and healthy.

Also, can we talk about how amazing it is that you’re only cooking on one baking sheet! This makes clean up soo much easier. So yes, I love them, and I know that if you aren’t a fan of sheet pan dinners yet, I’m about to convert you.

What is a sheet pan dinner?

Sheet pan dinners are like a mom’s best friend. When the evenings are hectic and you want to get something quick and healthy to the dinner table, look no further!

First You’ll (obviously) need a baking sheet. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy.

  • Most sheet pan recipes consist of vegetables and a protein. So to prepare your dinner, you’ll be quickly chopping up some veggies. These veggies tend to be heartier and can withstand baking in the oven. Think brussels sprouts, broccoli, carrots, parsnips, beets, potatoes, and kale.
  • For the protein you can use chicken breast, beef, tofu, pork, fish, seafood or eggs.
  • Most recipes will require you to season everything with spices, sauce or a marinade.
  • Once everything is placed on the baking sheet, add it to the oven, and dinner is ready.

Sheet pan meals are also great as leftovers and meal prep. You can make an entire week’s worth of lunches using this method. In our home, we eat a lot of sheet pan dinners with a side of rice or quinoa. I usually have a big batch of grains in the fridge already cooked that we use throughout the week. But it’s easy to cook up a batch while the sheet pan is in the oven.
