Sheet Pan Dinner

I absolutely love the ease and convenience of a sheet pan dinner. You put some oil on a sheet pan, then load it up with whatever protein and veggies you have on hand, and drizzle a little bit more oil on top. Pop it into a 350°F oven, give everything a stir around 30 minutes, then roast for another 15 minutes or so and dinner is ready. The exact time depends on what items you're using and what size the pieces are, but I generally find 45 minutes to be just about right. 

Here's our family's dinner from a recent weeknight: pineapple sausages (from Costco), sweet potatoes, baby carrots, cauliflower, and broccoli. The veggies all came from our produce box

I've made sheet pan dinners with a lot of different things, but my favorite protein to use is frozen, fully-cooked sausage. It heats perfectly in 45 minutes, I don't have to worry about over- or under-cooking it, and the steam it produces helps keep the vegetables moist. Here's the "before" picture - notice the sausages are completely frozen. 

Are you a fan of sheet pan dinners? I'd love to hear any successes (or failures) you've had!

  1. I've never done a sheet pan dinner. Roasted chicken and veggies only. That takes 90 minutes but no need to stir mid-way.
