Dinners That Can Be Made On A Sheet Pan

The sheet pan is often seen as a tool in the kitchen for baking cookies or biscuits. There are a few ideas for dinner that you can make on the thin pan. Many of the recipes are made with healthy ingredients and items that the entire family would enjoy. A benefit of these dinners is that they are very easy to make as many of them only require laying a few ingredients on the pan and putting the pan in the oven.

One of the dishes that children will likely enjoy includes fries and chicken. Place chicken covered in BBQ sauce on one side of the pan. You will need to bake the chicken first to get it done before adding the other items. In the middle of the pan, add any kind of fries that you enjoy. The other side of the pan can include a vegetable, such as asparagus or corn that you might place on the grill.

If you enjoy a delicious sausage and pepper sandwich, consider putting the ingredients on a sheet pan and assembling the sandwich after everything has been roasted. Add sliced onions, slices of green peppers and whole pieces of Italian sausage on the sheet pan before baking for about 30 minutes or until the sausage is done. Sprinkle salt and pepper on the peppers and sausage for flavor.

A delicious meal that can use some of the summer foods that you get from the garden includes pork chops and squash. Coat the pork chops with the kind of breading that you enjoy, and bake the meat in the oven until it’s almost done. Add slices of yellow squash and spinach that has a drizzle of honey. Sprinkle salt and pepper on the squash as well as a bit of butter for a crispy touch to the vegetable. Chili powder is an option for the squash or the spinach if you want something with a little more spice.
