The Benefits of Sheet Pan Meals

Get ready for the easiest meal idea ever -- the sheet pan meal! Breakfast, lunch, dinner, or dessert — tray bake recipes make big-batch cooking and cleanup a breeze.

Benefits of sheet pan meals include:

Time savings -- They come together super quickly and are perfect for when you haven't quite planned your weekly menu out in advance. Most recipes are easy and just take a few minutes of prep time. The oven does all the work so you can be productive in other ways – help the kids with homework, shower, or relax, hang out on the couch, and watch TV -- whatever you need to do while everything's cooking. And since everything cooks together on one pan, cleanup is fast and easy too.

Almost anything goes -- Sheet pan meals are a great way to clear out the fridge. Usually it's just a matter of pairing proteins and vegetables that have a similar cooking time tossed with a bit of olive oil, a vinegar, hot sauce, soy sauce, or honey mustard, and some spices from your pantry. Even easier is to use any of our Bellisari’s Sauces and Spreads as the pizazz to your pan meal. Maybe add some fresh herbs at the end. There's your basic sheet pan meal formula!

No fancy or expensive equipment required -- The humble sheet pan may be the strongest workhorse in the kitchen. A sheet pan takes the concept of a one-pot meal and flips it onto a pan. A sheet pan is a wide, shallow baking pan made from aluminum or stainless steel whose low sides encourage airflow and browning. It’s the go-to pan for roasting vegetables, meats, and often entire meals.

The best sheet-pan meals are as beautiful and complex-tasting as any meal you spent hours (and many, many pots and pans) crafting, with contrasts in texture and flavor. With Bellisari’s gourmet spreads and sauces, your sheet pan meals will be extra delicious and even easier! Visit to get some fantastic recipes.
