Dinner has never been so easy.

One of the worst things about cooking dinner is all the cleanup. Not only do you have to wash the dishes, but usually there are a few pots and pans that also need scrubbing. This, on top of the work it takes to actually cook the dinner, can be enough to inspire folks to give up altogether.

Enter sheet pan dinners. They simplify cooking.

The great thing about sheet pan dinners ― which are basically meals you make on a sheet pan and pop in the oven ―- is that there’s significantly less cleanup. There’s also less work that goes into the actual making of the meal. Bonus: you can expect it to be just as good as a meal that used up every dish in your cupboard.

You just need one sheet pan, and then one of these 15 different dinners can be baked in your oven in no time:
