10 Sheet Pan Dinners That Will Save Your Weeknights

I’m a big fan of sheet pan dinners because I am essentially a lazy cook. I can’t stand when meals require more than three cooking receptacles. It messes with my time-management system, because who has time for all those dishes? This is why sheet pan dinners are ideal for busy weeknights. Put everything on one pan, toss it in the oven and you’re good to go. These sheet pan dinner recipes are some of my tried-and-true favorites because they save on time, but never skimp on flavor.
