I’m always looking for shortcuts in the kitchen, and I think I’ve found a magical one—and all you need is a large sheet pan. These meals have probably been around for a while, but they now have a name: sheet pan dinners!
The basic premise is that you cook all the components of the meal on one sheet pan. Sometimes you add a sauce before; sometimes after. Sometimes these sheet pan dinners are a meal in themselves; for others, you may want to cook a starch like rice or pasta on the side.
It’s considerably less mess than having all these things going in different pans, and if you line your sheet pan with foil, then clean up is especially easy!
Here are 16 sheet pan dinners that all look delicious to me and that I’m planning to try in the new year.
