Five Sheet Pan Supper Recipes You Can Make Tonight

The best part: No clean-up required.

Like one-pot meals, sheet pan suppers fit all your weeknight criteria: Fast, easy, minimal cleanup—and delicious. But, unlike ingredients stewed together in one pot, roasting different items on a baking sheet affords you a wider variety of flavor. Like, say, a pile of juicy bell peppers cooking alongside fresh corn, next to spiced beans, next to jalapenos, which can all be wrapped into a warm burrito shell with avocado, cilantro, and a spritz of lime. Everyone can customize their own plate, picking and omitting ingredients.  These types of meals, friends, are anything but homogenous and soupy.

With sheet pan suppers, there is no sneaky extra work. No pre-boiling, no dough-rolling, and nobody complaining about the dishes. Below, you will find five delicious sheet pan supper recipes.  The ‘‘recipe’’ list is a little unconventional in that no measurements or precise cooking times are listed. This is an inspiration board, to adapt, double-batch, and season how you please. In those cases where one ingredient has a longer cooking time, it is indicated to give a head start accordingly.

To line your sheet pan, I recommend using parchment paper or a reusable baking mat (such as a Silpat®).
