Smart Tip: For an Easy & Elegant Meal, Make a One-Sheet-Pan Dinner

Bon Appétit

With their quick prep and convenient cleanup, one-pot meals are perfect for busy weeknights, but if you're looking for an interesting alternative to the usual soups, stews and casseroles, give one-sheet-pan dinners a try.

In the March 2012 issue, Bon Appétit included a spread on sheet-pan dinners, which cook the protein alongside the vegetables on a rimmed sheet pan in the oven. Ingredients with longer cooking times can either go into the oven first, with quick-cooking components added later, or they can be cut into smaller pieces for faster cooking.

Dinners like this look a little fancier than the usual one-pot meal, but cleanup is just as quick, making them a great option for no-fuss dinner parties.
