Everyone wants a delicious and healthy dinner, but very few have the time (or patience)! Here are 15 super simple and healthy single sheet pan meals.
I don’t think anyone PREFERS to order take out over a good home cooked meal. But let’s be honest, life gets BUSY. And sometimes, it’s hard to have the time (or patience if you’re like me), to get home from a long day of work/school and want dirty a ton of dishes to make one meal. → Insert delicious single sheet pan meals ←
A lot of my 1-1 clients as a registered dietitian, tell me 1 of 2 reasons why they struggle to have real, whole food, home-cooked meals: Lack of time to make meal, OR lack of energy to make meal (and clean up after). Well first lack of time, check out this post on meal planning and prepping right here! And for the second reason of having a lack of energy to make and clean up, keep reading below.
When I made my first single sheet pan meal, I was amazed. “Wait, you can seriously make every part of a meal, using only one pan?!”, was basically my reaction.
I ever went back. Okay that’s an exaggeration, because some of my meals I don’t dirty just one pan, I dirty just one crockpot. I mean, have you ever witnessed first hand how easy crockpot meals are too??
But back to this post’s focus, single sheet pan meals. Thanks to Recipe Redux’s monthly theme for September being just that, I decided to round up some of the most delicious single sheet pan meals in one place.
Reasons to Make Single Sheet Pan Meals?

- Not only easy, but they are delicious (at least these below are)
