Six easy and healthy sheet pan meals the whole family will love. Roast chicken, pork, steak, salmon, vegetables, and potatoes all at once!
Preparing dinner for a family is no easy task, forget worrying about making something healthy for them. What if you could make an easy and healthy dinner that cooks all at the same time? Oh, and clean up is also a breeze. Would you believe me? You better because that’s what I’m sharing with you today. Five easy and healthy sheet pan meals, plus a sheet pan breakfast.
Until recently, I had no idea there was a difference between a sheet pan and what is more commonly used, a jelly pan. Both are similar in size and shape, but a jelly pan is thinner and can’t withstand the high temperatures that sheet pans can; they warp during cooking. Have you ever heard a loud bang when your pan is in the oven? If you answered yes, you have a jelly pan, not a sheet pan.
A sheet pan is made of aluminum and can withstand high temperatures. It can be used for anything from baking cookies to roasting vegetables. I purchased this inexpensive sheet pan from Amazon and so far I’m loving everything about it. Another must have when cooking with sheet pans is a silicone baking mat to prevent food from sticking. This is the exact mat I use; it prevents the use of butter, oil, or spray and replaces parchment paper.
Why sheet pan dinners are the greatest ever:
- All your food cooks together
- Keeps clean up to a minimum
- No scrubbing pots and pans
- Most ingredients can be prepped before hand
