You’re going to want to sit down as we’re combining two of our favorites—Trader Joe’s and sheet pan dinners—for the ultimate easy dinner option. For most of these “recipes” (and we use that term loosely) all you have to do is cover your sheet pan in foil, preheat the oven, and dump your favorite Trader Joe’s items on the pan to bake. The best part is that they’re no active cooking and you can typically bake these at anywhere from 350-425 degrees (just by adjusting the cooking time), perfect for when you want to add some rolls or other items to go along with them.

Mini Gnocchi + Spinach Artichoke Dip + Cherry Tomatoes

Trader Joe's sheet pan dinners with gnocchi are delicious.
Kate Loweth

You can find these mini gnocchi in the fresh food section and the spinach artichoke dip in the freezer. Drizzle your pan with olive oil, dump the mini gnocchi and tomatoes in the pan, add a few cubes of frozen garlic along with some salt and pepper, and plop the artichoke dip into the center of the pan. Bake until the tomatoes burst and the dip has melted. Add a little stock or cream to loosen up the dip and stir to combine. You don’t even have to boil the gnocchi before baking; it’s that easy!


Broccoli + Unexpected Cheddar Chicken Sausage + Cauliflower Gnocchi

If your family members are fans of the cult-favorite Unexpected Cheddar, then this dinner will make them happy. Cut the pre-cooked sausage into half moons and then dump them on a foil-lined cookie sheet along with cauliflower gnocchi and broccoli florets. Bake at 400 degrees until the gnocchi is done to your liking, around 20 minutes. Give it a stir once or twice so everything browns evenly.


Shawarma Chicken Thighs + Sweet Potato Frites + Naan

If your crew can handle a little bit of heat, this option could not be easier. Cover your sheet pan in foil and put the shawarma chicken on one side and the sweet potato fries on the other. Follow the package instructions for cooking the fries. Your chicken should be cooked through by the end of this process but check the internal temp for doneness. Serve with naan to make “naan tacos” for one of the most kid-friendly Trader Joe’s sheet pan dinners.

Shrimp + Asparagus + Lemon

Set your oven to 400 degrees and run the shrimp under water in a colander until they have defrosted. Dry them with a paper towel and place them on a cookie sheet with some olive oil. Add a package of frozen asparagus spears or fresh asparagus and spread them out on the pan. Slice a lemon thinly and place the slices over the shrimp and asparagus. Bake until the shrimp are cooked through, about 8-10 minutes. Squeeze another lemon over everything and serve.


Salmon + Salmon Rub Seasoning + Colorful Carrot Coins

Kate Loweth

A piece of salmon is pretty much the easiest thing you can bake, trust us. Pick up some salmon filets from the fresh meat section and a bottle of the new salmon rub seasoning. Cover your pan with foil and drizzle a little olive oil on it. Place your salmon skin side down and sprinkle with salmon seasoning. On the other half of your pan, spread out the colorful carrot coins. Bake at 425 degrees for 12-15 minutes until the salmon is cooked through. Serve with rice.


Peppercorn Garlic Boneless Pork Tenderloin + Cauliflower Gnocchi + Haricots Verts

Kate Loweth

We love this pork tenderloin as it cooks up in no time. Start by searing it in a hot pan and then transfer it to a sheet pan with your cauli gnocchi and haricot verts. Add a little olive oil and garlic powder/salt/pepper and bake at 425 until the pork is cooked through, usually no more than 20 minutes. The gnocchi and green beans will come out nicely browned and the pork flavorful.

Santa Maria Style Tri Tip Roast + Chimichurri Sauce + Brussels Sprouts

Kate Loweth

The cooking instructions for this roast say to cook it at 425º for 30-45 minutes and that’s the perfect amount of time to get some nice roasted Brussels sprouts going. Cut the ends of the sprouts off and then cut them in half before placing them on a sheet pan with a drizzle of olive oil. Add the roast to the pan and cook until the roast is done, giving the Brussels sprouts a stir once during cooking. Serve with a drizzle of chimichurri sauce and a warm baguette.


Grass Fed Beef Sirloin Roast + Mashed Potatoes + Lemon Arugula Basil Salad

Kate Loweth

This might be a little bit of a cheat but we had to include this fully-cooked roast on our list because it is the ultimate lazy dinner choice. Heat it up along with the microwaveable mashed potatoes and the salad of your choice for the ultimate easy Trader Joe’s sheet pan dinner.

We’re obsessed with these salmon bowls that come together in a flash. Line your sheet pan with foil and add your salmon with a dash of salmon rub. Bake until cooked to your liking. Microwave the rice and assemble your bowls with your favorite toppings: edamame, cucumbers, Soyaki, seaweed sheets, and whatever other vegs you have on-hand.

Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas

Pollo Asado, fire roasted veggies and tortillas for Trader Joe's sheet pan dinners.
Kate Loweth

All you need is 20 minutes to pull this delicious meal together. Set your oven to 425 and cover your sheet pan in foil. Cut the Pollo Asado into long, thin strips and spread it out with the fire-roasted peppers and onions on your sheet pan. Bake until cooked through (about 15 minutes) and then broil for a minute to get some nice char on the chicken. Serve in your favorite tortilla with salsa to top.


Haricot Verts + Balsamic Rosemary Beef Steak Tips + Harvest Grains

Kate Loweth

These flavorful bites of beef are easy to cook under the broiler. Partner them with green beans or their skinny cousin the Haricot Verts and you’ll be set with a main and a side. We love these served with the Harvest Blend grains.
