Pros and cons of sheet pan dinners!

Do you ever get tired of cooking and then cleaning up, especially after a busy day? We all do, this is why sheet pan dinners are so popular!

The recipes are simple and easy to prepare, most of the time you scatter all the ingredients on a large rimmed baking sheet or a baking tray, season with herbs and spices and drizzle with olive oil. That’s it, then just bake until the veggies are caramelized and the meat or fish is tender, juicy and flavourful.

For the cleanup, only one pan 🙂 I love sheet pan dinners and so does my family. When you cook everything in one pan all the flavours blend and infuse the veggies and or proteins. The juices in the pan are so good so make sure to drizzle them over everything just before serving.

Another good point about sheet pan dinner is, you don’t have to have a lot of meat. Use extra veggies instead, the meat will flavour everything beautifully, making sheet pan dinners more cost effective.

And lastly, you will spend very little time in the kitchen, leaving you time for more important things, like helping your kids with homework or sit down, put your feet up, and have a glass of wine 🙂 So there you have it for the pros.

Now, let us examine the cons. I can think of only two. One, not having a large enough pan to use, because sheet pan dinners work the best when you don’t overcrowd them. The second, the dinner is so delicious that more often than not there will be no leftovers for the next day…oh NO 🙁
