Cooking a real dinner, especially, on a busy weeknight is a HUGE challenge for so many moms… including me. I am running from one thing to another all day and after picking my kids up from school, I’ve grabbed one too many “hot and readys” from the drive-thru.

That’s where the magic of sheet pan dinners come in. I call them Cheat Sheet Meals because it’s so simple, it’s like cheating! Not to mention it’s hard to make these meals unhealthy or mess them up… unless you forget to take the sheet pan out of the oven!

In sticking with our Spring Clean your Life in a Week theme… we are Spring Cleaning the way you cook dinner. I’ve created the round-up of roundups by rounding up other bloggers’ roundups.

That’s a mouth full!

The other thing I adore about these meals is they are very easy to use with different dietary requirements. For instance, if a family member is on a low carb or gluten-free diet, simply add more veggies for them and add roasted potatoes or squash for everyone else.

No more boiling water for pasta or rice unless you want to add them as another side dish. But these sheet pan dinners are so hearty and delicious they’re great all on their own.

To make it super simple, I’ve just linked to each roundup list. You’re going to want to save this post for easy access to all these healthy and yummy recipes for later.

Never think about dinner again. It’s all done for you!

I’ve found sheet pan recipes before and I usually cook the meat how I normally do and cook the veggies in the oven. I love finding new ideas to roast veggies in the oven.

Pan dinners… What a great idea! I sometimes bake sweet potato nuggets in the oven or even spaghetti squash, but I don’t usually bake other veggies on a pan. Thank you for the tips!

Aw man Kristin! When I discovered this dinner strategy on Pinterest… it changed everything. It’s the perfect way to merge fast and healthy!

I need to give these a try! I just got a silicon baking mat and I love it for roasting potatoes and cooking chicken. It would make sheet pan dinners super easy!

Thanks Sarah! I can’t spend all night getting dinner ready so sometimes chicken nuggets go into the oven. Sheet pan dinners are just as fast as nuggets but WAY healthier and tastier too!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
