26 Healthy Sheet Pan Dinners

Is there anything better than making an entire meal on one pan? No there is not. I compiled 26 healthy sheet pan dinners that make weeknight meals a breeze!

What is a sheet pan dinner you may ask? The best creation in the food world. Half kidding, but they are pretty incredible! Here’s what you need to know about sheet pan dinners:

  1. You’ll need a sheet pan.
  2. Nine times out of ten your entire meal goes on that sheet pan.
  3. Meal prep and baking is a breeze.
  4. When the oven timer goes off, your entire meal is ready. WHAT!

I’ve decided that I need more sheet pan dinners in my life. The best thing about them is obviously that they only use one pan! Team less dishes for life. I also love how the flavors all kind of combine and mesh on the pan… not in a bad way but in a true, put together meal way!

These meals are amazing fresh out of the oven, but really great as leftovers as well. Repurpose as is, eat over grains, eat over greens for an easy meal-sized salad – the options are endless!

Here I’m sharing a few sheet pan recipes I’ve created but also featuring some of my friends and recipe creator pros in the blogging world!

      This is some really good information about sheet pan dinners. They look like they would be so much easier. I find it really cool that you can cook salmon with this method.

      How do you cook veggies with a high liquid content(like bell peppers) on a sheet pan? Every time I have tried the veggies become limp because they are getting steamed. What ma I doing wrong?

        I think you have to use really high heat for less time or keep cooking and put them in way before the shrimp
