7 One-Pan Favorite Fall Recipes

Created by Dixie®
When temperatures dip in autumn, it’s time to bring back meals with hearty ingredients and bold flavors. These quick and easy recipes are prepared in one dish for quick clean up.
  • Turn a favorite Italian appetizer into an oven-baked meal by adding chicken and ditching the bread to create a dinner that’s bursting with flavor and so simple to make. (If you miss the bread, serve a rustic loaf on the side.)


  • This Asian-inspired bowl is full of healthy veggies, making it a great option for vegetarians or those nights when you want to go meatless. Noodle dishes also taste great the next day. If you have any left over, package it up for tomorrow’s lunch.


  • Need a change from the usual slow cooker pot roast? Switch it up by turning it into tacos. Just slow cook the roast in a Tex-Mex seasoned broth, then shred the meat and serve in tortillas. Top with shredded cabbage, radishes, and pico de gallo for tacos that are good enough for company!


  • Welcome friends and family in from a chilly day with this classic cajun dish that will warm them up and keep them full. Chicken thighs and sausage combined with seasoned rice and veggies makes this a complete meal that’s also perfect for busy weeknights.


  • Use up those last few garden tomatoes and basil leaves for a fresh and simple pizza that can be made on a sheet pan, pizza pan, or stone. Refrigerated dough makes prep time super fast. All you have to do is roll out the dough, top it, and bake.


  • This hearty skillet recipe is perfect for crisp fall days. Caramelizing the onions and sweet potatoes brings out their natural sweetness while also giving them a rich color. The dish is finished off with sage, a bold and savory herb that complements the pork.


  • Today’s pressure cookers are easy to use and can make almost anything— even dessert! A traditional apple crisp takes almost an hour in the oven but this one is done in minutes. For a fun weekend activity, take the kids to an apple orchard to pick varieties unique to your area.
