The bottom line
Lots of people make mistakes with sheet pan-style cooking.
One of the errors people make when they cook these single-pan meals is when the sheet pan is overcrowded with food.
Another is when the ingredients don’t cook evenly or at the same time.
The worst of all would be when your sheet pan meal lacks flavor, and nobody wants to eat it.
You can avoid these issues by taking note of some of the things you should do when planning a sheet pan dinner.
For starters, you should always cook these dinners with a good quality sheet pan.
Try to avoid sheet pans that warp in the oven, and the best way to avoid this is to buy commercial-grade ones that are made with heavy-duty aluminum or aluminized steel.
To address the mistake of uneven cooking, there are two things to remember–don’t overcrowd the pan and cook ingredients with similar cooking times.
If your recipe calls for different ingredients with different cooking times, try adding the quick-cooking ones a few minutes before you’re ready to serve.
This will help you cook everything to perfection.
You can also try to tweak the recipe you’re following to use ingredients that cook at approximately the same time or chop the ones that take longer to cook into smaller, quicker cooking sizes.
For lackluster and flavorless meals, these can be easily avoided with proper seasoning and marinating meats ahead of time.
Also, investing in a good sheet pan will help you achieve any of these sheetpan dinner recipes easily.
It will also help you make amazingly tasty meals for your family and friends in a fraction of the time.
