Weekend Special: Crispy Tofu Teriyaki with Broccoli

Weekends should be special. A much needed “me time” is essential for everyone’s well-being, even for those with families. Given that, we want to make weekends special by cooking delicious meals, yet not spend too much time in the kitchen. With a Kitchenatics baking sheet, cooking a sheet pan dinner is definitely made easier.

There are times when I prepare a lavish meal on Sundays, when I’m well-rested. Even my hubby takes time to smoke or grill some meat. However, there are days when we just want to relax and have a good meal without the fuss. That’s where these sheet pan dinners come in handy. Just toss all the ingredients together in a baking sheet and let them roast in the oven.

Sheet Pan Dinner Ideas You Should Try

Sheet pan dinners have always been a lifesaver. You could easily make them and let them cook while you attend to other tasks. They are also extremely helpful when you have surprise guests.

One of the famous sheet pan dinner recipes that I made is this Stuffed Chicken with Spinach and BaconA friend of mine dropped by with her son. I had already cooked something for lunch but decided that it won’t be enough so I made this recipe. As we were eating, my friend looked at her son and had this surprised look on her face. Later, she told me that her son hated veggies, especially spinach. So she was really surprised that her son did not give a fuss. When asked later on how he liked the spinach, his son said, “Oh, if you cook spinach like that, Mom, I wouldn’t notice.” So I gave her the recipe.

Another famous recipe is my Keto-friendly Bacon and Asparagus. I had a guest who was strictly on the Keto diet and we invited her over for dinner. I totally forgot that she was on the Keto diet so I didn’t have time to go to the grocery. Good thing I had some asparagus and bacon stocked up so I made her these. She totally loved it and said that she would definitely add this to her meal plan.
