The holiday season can be a busy time. We often have more items on our to-do list, but less time in which to do them. In addition, we may be entertaining friends and family or hosting guests at our house. All this added busyness and stress can make it burdensome to plan meals.
Sheet pan meals are a great solution to this problem. Using a baking sheet, you can prepare countless recipes with ease—from open faced sandwiches, to roasted meat and vegetables—all on a single pan. This method requires minimal clean-up, which means more time spent with family and friends! Sheet pan recipes also make it easy to scale the ingredient quantities to fit your party size, meaning you can serve four…eight…ten people at once.
Here are three sheet pan meals to get you started—one each for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!
Breakfast – Eggs-in-a-Hole
This sheet pan version of eggs-in-a-hole is a great way to prepare breakfast for a lot of people. Whereas traditional eggs-in-a-hole may be fine for 1 or 2 people, this oven-baked method lets you easily scale your recipe for parties of 3 or more.
Lunch – Open Faced Ham, Pear, and Cheese Melt
Cooking grilled cheese sandwiches for multiple people can be a hassle because you often have to cook them in batches of only 1 or 2, depending on the size of your skillet. Using this sheet pan method to create open-faced sandwiches, you can cook as many sandwiches as you need at the same time.
This method also makes it easy to customize the sandwiches to each person’s liking. Try topping your open-faced sandwich with ham, pear, and gruyere cheese, like in this recipe!
Dinner – Honey Garlic Chicken Hoagies
Baking sheets are a great way to cook a lot of meat and veggies at one time, as long as they require the same oven temperature. Try this method with marinated chicken and veggies, oven-roasted, then served on Martin’s Hoagie Rolls.
