 Quick and easy sheet pan dinners  These quick and easy sheet pan dinners are perfect for everyone from busy moms who want something simple and nutritious, but still tasty, to serve to their family… to the busy professional looking to meal prep for a busy workweek.

Here’s some of the reasons I love quick and easy sheet pan dinners:

  • Virtually ZERO clean up! Yep. You read that correctly. Just line your sheet pans with parchment paper before sticking them in the oven and the only things you’ll need to clean are utensils!

  • They don’t require a ton of meal prepping skills. Just pick a veggie, starch, and protein option and you’re good to go. (Keep reading for foods that have similar cooking times and pair well together.)

  • It’s a great way to let kids help you prep dinner. Let them arrange the veggies and starch choices on the pan and if they’re old enough, you can even let them help chop some things up.

  • Quick and easy sheet pan dinners are great for weekend meal peppers too. See the pictures below for great ways to store your meals and have dinner ready to go all week long.

To start, set your oven to 425 degrees, and line a large sheet pan (I prefer one that has sides), with parchment paper. Then pick your foods based on how much time you have…

10 minute quick and easy sheet pan dinners:

  • Veggies: green beans, asparagus, spiraled veggies

  • Starch: sourdough bread slices, corn

  • Protein: shrimp, sausage, thin white fish (like snapper)

15 minute quick and easy sheet pan dinners:

  • Veggies: broccoli, cauliflower, chopped brussel sprouts

  • Starch: chopped butternut squash, thin sliced potatoes and sweet potatoes

  • Protein: salmon, tofu

25 minute quick and easy sheet pan dinners:

  • Veggies: carrots, bell peppers, onions, mushrooms

  • Starch: frozen rolls (I love BraziBites), sweet potato chunks, potato chunks,

  • Protein: chicken breast, pork chops, chickpeas

And to add flavor, you definitely want to use things like spices, oils, cheese, herbs, etc. to spice things up a bit. Below are three of my favorite quick and easy sheet pan dinners! Enjoy!
