This Sheet Pan BBQ Meatballs Green Beans and Potatoes dinner is super easy, hearty and comforting! What more could a person ask for?? Oh, and it’s all made on one pan, you’re welcome.
I’m on a sheet pan dinner roll!!! I promise to slow down now and start sprinkling in some fall desserts because I love all those spices and those wonderful flavors of apple, caramel, maple and pumpkin!
But for today we are gong to be talking about this sheet pan bbq meatballs, green beans and potatoes. It isn’t any harder than the traditional way of making meatloaf and if anything I would say it’s easier!
It’s easier since we are sticking to just one pan. No, separate pans for the mashed potatoes and green beans to babysit. Instead we are going to roast everything, not that mashed potatoes are bad just impossible to make in the oven. And since we are trying to make things a little easier we are going to roast the veggies.
The potatoes will go into the oven first to get a head start because they will take the longest to bake. Be sure to stir them once during baking so they can get crispy all over. While they are baking get the green beans and meatballs ready so when the potatoes come out you can quickly put everything on the baking sheet and back into the oven. During the last 5 minutes of baking brush those nice little meatballs with bbq sauce.
Now that’s an awesome dinner everyone can enjoy!!
