Watch The Cooking Times Of Vegetables
When you whip-up sheet pan dinners, it’s important to keep cooking times in mind. Certain veggies roast faster than others. Be sure to start with harder veggies like potatoes and carrots (along with your meats, of course!).
Use Different Types Of Meat
Chicken and potatoes are a classic pair. If you have pork chops, you can bake those instead. Use your favorite type of meat. Just make sure that no matter which type of meat you use, you always check the internal temperature with an instant-read food thermometer. This way, you will know it is fully cooked.
Use Parchment Paper
Don’t forget to use parchment paper. You could also use aluminum foil. Either way, cover up the baking sheet. This will save you so much time after dinner because you won’t have to scrub the baking sheet. Some of the veggies and even the meat like to stick to the tray.
