With summer here, the last thing I want to do is slave in the kitchen making meals. But I also don’t want my family to live off salads and sandwiches either. There is a solution, and it’s called sheet pan meals. My newest book 200 Best Sheet Pan Meals show us how to combine all our ingredients on a single cooking sheet and create stunning meals.
- 25 Extra-Simple Pantry Meals
- Breakfast and Brunch
- Meatless Meals
- Fish and Seafood Meals
- Chicken and Turkey Meals
- Pork, Beef and Lamb Meals
- Sheet Sweets
The one sheet pan meal is, in essence, a reinvention of the one-pot meal, but with updated ideas. It sounds so simple, and it is. We may have all the latest and greatest appliances and kitchenware, but sometimes the humble sheet pan and an oven are all you need to whip up a delicious and nutritious meal.
Not all sheet pans are created equal. The beginning of the book helps you choose which sheet pans are best and which ones to avoid. Did you know that silicone sheet pans can melt if heated above its heat threshold? I had no idea. The sheet pan pantry section shares what foods you will need to create the included recipes. The rest of the book is all about the scrumptious recipes and your sheet pan.
25 Extra-Simple Panty Meals will introduce you to creating lots of convenient and uncomplicated dishes for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinners, desserts, and snacks. As a vegan, the Spaghetti Squash with Pesto and Chickpeas captured my attention. In less than an hour, you can make, bake, and serve this family favorite.
Need a break from meat, but still, want your daily protein? The Meatless Meals chapter has a plethora of healthy alternative recipes that will satisfy your taste buds and your dietary needs. I confess I want to make every recipe in this chapter.
The recipes are hearty, savory, and made with local ingredients. A few recipes included in this section are Crispy Baked Falafel, Warm Edamame, Quinoa & Corn Salad, Spicy Pinto Bean Burger, and Pepper Jack and Black Bean Oven Quesadillas.
Dessert lovers will not be disappointed; the Sheet Sweets chapter has lots of tasty and tempting dishes that are oozing with pure yumminess. How about making some Sheet Pan Cheesecake, or Vanilla Rhubarb Crumble, or Peanut Butter Cookie Tart with Raspberries, or Rustic Apple Tart? These mouthwatering recipes are easy to make and utterly sumptuous.
The 200 Best Sheet Pan Meals recipes will make you look like you’re a pro in the kitchen. The recipes are quick, no fuss, easy to follow, super fun to make, and a breeze to clean up. They’re perfect for family get-togethers, parties, backyard barbecues and game night. What more could we ask for? I love this cookbook and I’m delighted to have it as part of my culinary collection.
