7 Sheet Pan Recipes For Quick And Easy Weeknight Dinners

The Baker Mama

We love one-pot dishes like simple slow-cooker meals, but it’s always nice to have some variety on your dinner plate. But this can often mean several recipes to follow and lots of dishes being used — and who has the time or energy for that? We found the perfect solution, and it involves baking every part of your meal on a single sheet pan, streamlining your prep — and your clean-up.

If you’re looking for some recipe ideas, here are seven sheet pan dinners that are not only delicious, but make preparing dinner a breeze.
