One-pot and one-pan meals are one of my go-to mealtime hacks, especially during the busy work week. Nights after work with my kids go by so fast between picking them up, prepping dinner, and attempting to enjoy a family meal together. Soon, we’re onto the bathtime and bedtime routine, so if I can spend more time hanging out with them and less time cleaning up, it’s a win for me.
This roundup of recipes includes slow cooker comfort foods, savory skillets, veggie-packed stir-fries, and delicious pasta creations—all made in one pan or one pot (even the veggies)! We also included a few tools of the trade if your kitchen is missing one of the essentials for one-pot and one-pan meals.
