You know what else has power? Many home cooks need fast, flexible, family-friendly meals that don’t leave you with a ton of dishes to clean.
How to clean and care for your hobs – and worry less about how they look
These are among my reasons for loving these one-pot wonders. Here are some top options from our recipe finder.
Feta on a Romesco-inspired plate with peppers and tomatoes. Move over, TikTok’s Baked Feta Pasta: Daniela Galarza has a different way of enjoying this briny cheese that yields to supple perfection when roasted. Here you include it on a plate with vegetables for a dish reminiscent of a Spanish romesco sauce.
Plate dinners are the easy and adaptable way to quickly get dinner on the table
Italian sausage and peppercorn sandwiches on a baking sheet. This Daniela recipe has made its way into my regular dinner rotation. I tend to make mine with vegan sausage, but whichever you choose, you’ll end up with a satisfying sandwich, best served with fries and a pickle. For another sausage dinner from Daniela, check out Sheet of sausages with sauerkraut and mustardwhich will be perfect once the evenings start to cool down.
The baking sheet is the most versatile element in your kitchen
Sheet of cheesesteak. The only extra dish you’ll be smearing for this meal is a bowl in which you’ll microwave the sauce. Otherwise, everything in the Philadelphia classic-inspired sandwich comes together on the skillet.
The Thanksgiving Plate Plan

Maple mustard chicken thighs and red cabbage on a plate. Brushing the chicken thighs with a sweet and tangy mixture of gritty mustard and maple syrup creates an extra-crispy skin, a nice contrast to the soggy bed of cabbage. For another chicken option, consider Dorie Greenspan’s Plate Chicken with Apples and Kalewhich can be done with breasts or thighs.
Salmon leaf with mint peas, oranges and fennel. Salmon fillets cook over a vibrant mix of sliced orange, fennel and red onion before frozen peas are added for the last few minutes in the oven. The Brown sugar and salmon rubbed with chilli also combines fish and vegetables for a flavorful effect.
Roasted Cod With Parsley-Shallot Sauce And Broccolini. If you don’t mind breaking out your mini food processor (or mini bowl for your regular food processor) for the bright green sauce, you can whip up this simple yet elegant dinner on the table in half an hour. The popular sweet fish takes a star turn in Horseradish-Crusted Cod with Carrots, Parsnips and Dill Mustard Drizzle as well.
Mini food processors are an essential tool for kitchens of all sizes
Baked Tofu with Peanut Sauce and Bok Choy. You’ll need a blender or food processor for this recipe, but feel free to swap out a store-bought peanut sauce you like if you want to streamline. This recipe uses two baking sheets, one for the tofu and one for the bok choy.
Sheet Pan Caponata and Couscous With Goat Cheese. While the veggies finish on the baking sheet, quickly whip up a casserole of couscous that will help melt the goat cheese “into a creamy, salty, tangy puddle,” says Daniela.
