Sheet pan dinners make short work of dinnertime. They’re basically shorthand for minimal prep and minimal cleanup, which makes them ideal for weeknights, or even a really busy weekend night. Which is why you’ll pretty much always find a sheet pan supper in our weekly rotation. And, because we’re always looking to mix things up, we’ve rounded up 10 more recipes we’re turning to right now.
Some of these recipes are super-adaptable, like the chicken shawarma. It works with tofu, too! Craving breakfast for dinner? Try the sheet pan sweet potato hash — and you can go ahead and skip the bacon if it’s not your thing. Never had nachos for dinner? These loaded veggie nachos may make you a believer, especially since you can serve them directly from pan to plate. Or your mouth.
1. Sheet Pan Sweet Potato Hash from How Sweet Eats
Breakfast for dinner is always a winner, but especially when you can put it all on one pan — including the eggs. This recipe calls for bacon for the full breakfast effect, but feel free to skip it to make it vegetarian.
2. Asian Glazed Sheet Pan Salmon and Broccoli from Completely Delicious
Salmon is loaded with omega-3s and is so much easier than you think to prepare. Ginger, garlic, sesame oil, hoisin, and honey provide a great glaze for salmon and broccoli. If you’re keeping tabs on sugar, feel free to halve the honey. Serve with rice – or as is.
3. Veggie Sheet Pan Nachos from Two Peas and Their Pod
You might not think about serving nachos for dinner, but they’re easy to load up with veggies like peppers, corn, tomatoes, radishes, and cabbage. Make it more or less cheesy, depending on preferences. Use grain-free tortilla chips or a no-salt option to customize the nachos to your health preferences.
4. Baked Chicken Shawarma (Vegan Adaptable!) from Feasting at Home
If you’re got a household of meat-eaters and vegetarians, or just want a recipe that can work both ways, this baked shawarma recipe is your jam. Choose your protein (chicken or tofu work great!), add peppers, cauliflower and onions, and toss with cumin, coriander and turmeric. Serve as a bowl, in a wrap, with an optional tahini sauce, or with rice.
5. One Pan Pork Tenderloin and Vegetables from My Kitchen Love
This pork tenderloin dish is dusted with za’atar, the delicious Middle Eastern spice blend that includes sumac, thyme, and sesame seeds.
6. Spicy Thai Sweet Chili Shrimp from Killing Thyme
Like takeout, but way better—especially if you go with the homemade chili sauce option, which uses honey rather than oodles of corn syrup that a store-bought one would have.
7. Sheet Pan Italian Chicken from Well Plated by Erin
Italian chicken and veggies is a crowdpleaser and feels destined to become a weeknight regular. Pair it with a big salad to add even more vegetables.
8. Sheet Pan Tofu Fajitas from Darn Good Veggies
Everything you want to roll up inside a fajita goes right on the sheet pan, tossed with a marinade of tamari and spices. From there, it’s straight to the tortilla. Bonus: Try the recipe for homemade corn tortillas!
9. Sheet Pan Marinated Steak Tips with Veggies from Lexi’s Clean Living
Sirloin steak tips and a ton of veggies get mixed with fresh rosemary and avocado oil and roasted on one sheet pan for a hearty weeknight meal.
10. Herbed Asparagus, Potato and Chickpea Sheet Pan Dinner from Simply Veganista
If you’ve never roasted chickpeas before, you’re in for a treat. They become sweet and nutty and irresistible. And, tossed with potatoes, asparagus and some dried seasonings, they make for a hearty vegan dinner.
