What’s the appeal of sheet pan dinners?
Paleo and AIP sheet pan dinners make life a little simpler — with low-fuss meal prep and very little clean-up.
All of the recipes here use healthy, easy to access ingredients — yet some are extra flavorful, colorful and exciting.
You can always adapt recipes, too: increase the veggies or protein if more people are eating — or if you want leftovers for easy lunches and follow-up meals!
You can also halve the ingredients if cooking for two people or less!
What is a sheet pan for cooking?
Are all of the sheet pan recipes AIP-compliant?
Several of the Paleo recipes below use black pepper. I have noted next to these recipes to omit it (for AIP).
One other recipe below uses brown sugar, so I have indicated to substitute maple sugar or coconut sugar in its place.
Enjoy these, and let me know which ones are your favorites!

Tips for your own sheet pan dinners
If you want to improvise and try out your own sheet pan combinations, great! Just make sure you pair meats and veggies that have similar cooking times.
- For uneven cooking times, use two sheet pans to ensure proper cooking times for each.
- With meats that cook quickly, chop or slice your vegetables small, to allow a quick cooking time for both.
- For meats that take longer, use larger cuts of root vegetables, such as sweet potatoes.
- OR — Put the food that needs a longer cooking time on one side of the pan. Bake. Remove from the oven when it’s time to add the second food (that requires less cooking), and place it on the second side of the pan. Finish baking.
It’s best to start with tried and true recipes to ensure your dinner is uniformly and properly cooked — and to ensure the best flavors. So enjoy the ones here! 🙂
How to feed a large family with sheet pan dinners
Two pans work well when you’re doubling a recipe to feed a large family (four or more).
Most sheet pan recipes can easily be doubled:
- Feeding 4 to 6 people OR you want leftovers!: Use two full sheet pans, and consider doubling the recipe. Often there’s enough protein, so just double the vegetable part of the recipe.
