Sheet pan meals are everywhere lately. It is no surprise though, we all want a quick, simple, and satisfying dinner. Um, yes please. This Fall Pork, Apple and Squash Sheet Pan Dinner is the meal of your dreams. Save you time and win points with the family, dreams.
Let’s stop and address something real quick. When did our meals become so complicated? It seems that every dish is elaborate and time-consuming. And if they aren’t super complex they are incredibly unhealthy. What gives?
Don’t get me wrong, I adore making fancy dishes, in the right setting. I save these meals for special occasions and Sunday suppers.
For instance, I don’t skimp on holidays. Many of these dishes and meals are all out elaborate. They are few and far between though, so I can pull it off.
- Top a green salad with your leftover veggies and meat, and drizzle with your favorite dressing.
- Turn the leftovers into a savory soup by reheating in homemade broth, and adding some fresh herbs such as thyme and sage.
- For a breakfast hash, reheat leftovers in a skillet. Make 4 wells in between the ingredients, and crack eggs into wells. Add a top to your pan and let the dish steam until eggs are cooked to your liking.
