Oven-Baked Dinners The Whole Family Will Love
Most people don't enjoy spending a busy weeknight huddled over the stovetop making dinner for hours. Trying to decide what to make, dealing with so many pots and pans, and cleaning up the mess that comes afterwards can be overwhelming. On those nights when you're too tired to really cook, your trusty old oven is all you need to get a delicious, hot meal on the table. And Mashed has all the recipes you need to satisfy any appetite.
From low-key sheet pan dinners that you can assemble in ten minutes or less, to comforting casseroles and simple yet hearty pasta bakes that can be made ahead and go straight from your freezer to the oven, we've rounded up our best oven-baked dinners the whole family will love. Just preheat, pour a glass of wine, and enjoy the glorious aromas that fill up the house as your dinner roasts to perfection.
Here are few basic things to keep in mind while using an oven.
1. Most ovens come with different metal racks. Use the one according to the dish you are cooking and remove the others. Make sure your oven is clean and does not sneakily hide any burnt leftovers from its last use.2. Temperature is important – both while pre-heating and while cooking. Usually, the oven is pre-heated to its maximum temperature. Also, make sure you don't oven the oven frequently with the dish inside as it causes the heat to escape and that will increase the cooking time.3. Keep in mind that hot air or heat rises up. Therefore, if you want to cook something slowly, play it in the bottom tray. On the other hand, if you're looking for a crisp surface then place your dish on the top tray. In most baking and roasting recipes, it is best to use the middle rack as the heat remains consistent there.

30 Easy One-Tray Oven Dinners
Stop using a million pots to cook your dinner, like a fool. Just let those meats and veggies cuddle up together in the oven.
Braising a pork shoulder the size of Rhode Island is an awesome activity for a lazy Sunday. But sometimes you need dinner on a more immediate basis. You need a sheet-pan dinner!
Also called "jelly roll pans" and "rimmed baking sheets" — sheet pans are invaluable in the kitchen. A great feature in Bon Appétit showed us their ultimate use: roasting veggies and a fast-cooking protein on one pan.
The most simple formula is sheet pan + protein + vegetable(s) + salt + oil = dinner. You can also use a casserole dish in place of a sheet pan — the only difference there is the height of the pan's sides, which doesn't matter too much.
The key to using the formula correctly is understanding your ingredients' cooking rates. For example, potatoes take longer than chicken, which takes longer than eggs. That's where these recipes are super helpful. Once you get the hang of it, you can go nuts inventing your own tray-riffic (SORRY) meals.
"This was a huge hit! The kids got up this morning and asked if there were leftovers (there weren't)."

Oven-baked dishes recipes
The oven can be a lazy cook’s best friend, as most foods can be left to their own devices when ensconced in its consistent blanket of heat. The possibilities are endless and appetising: a piping hot pie with crisp crust hiding a bubbling beef and ale filling, a virtuous vegetarian moussaka, a creamy fish pie topped with buttery mash. A classic toad-in-the-hole is ludicrously easy once the oven takes over, while a lasagne would not be the same without its sojourn on the oven rack for its molten, golden-brown topping. The only trick is to make sure you know your oven – fan assisted ones should be set 20C/70F lower than what the recipe suggests, while a digital thermometer could help you really gauge what temperature your oven is working at.
This hearty veggie bake can be prepared in advance and topped with cheese and breadcrumbs just before cooking.
