Easy Recipe Tips for Making 5 Star Sheet Pan Dinners

  • Does it matter what type of potatoes I use when making sheet pan recipes?

I like to use red potatoes for making sheet pan meals because they seem to hold up better than Yukon Gold or russet potatoes; this makes the red potatoes easier to toss and they won’t fall apart when you are doing so.

  • My family doesn’t like cabbage. Will this sheet pan dinner still be good if I use just sausage and potatoes?

If your family isn’t a fan of cabbage, you can opt to leave it out of this sheet pan dinner – no problem. IF, however, you can get your family to give this sheet pan meal WITH the cabbage included, they will see that the cabbage totally takes on the other delicious flavors of the dish, making them prominent. The cabbage is truly so good in this meal.

  • What type of baking sheet should be used for making sheet pan meal?

A heavy-duty (or commercial grade) sheet pan is key for promoting even browning when making sheet pans meals. Good browning of all the ingredients is what really contributes to deeper, richer flavors in anything we cook. A heavy-duty sheet pan is worth the investment.
