Sheet pan dinners are amazing in autumn for lots of reasons. The plethora of delicious fall ingredients available, filling your home with their enticing scents and warm, fuzzy feelings is enough to make anyone want to grab a chef’s hat and run to the kitchen. But sometimes all of those wonderful fall flavors come with complex cooking techniques and hours of labor. And let’s be real — sometimes (usually) we just don’t have time for all of that. But what if we told you that preparing a healthy and wholesome, beautifully fall, exquisitely tasty dinner could be done with just one pan and hardly any time at all? Sounds pretty remarkable, doesn’t it?
Sheet pan dinners are something of a miracle. And while they can be made year-round, of course, there’s something about fall that makes these dinners taste even better. So grab your favorite sheet pan, and let’s dive in.
