How Useful are Baking Sheets?

I'm almost embarrassed to admit that I had reached the ripe old age of 72 before I ever used a Baking Sheet (also known as a Cookie Sheet).

Before that I had always used a deep baking tray, the sort that comes with your oven, and is used for roasting meat. I hadn't even consciously noticed the existence of flat baking trays.

The Day I Started Cooking With Baking Sheets:

One day when I was visiting my daughter's family and we were all messing about in the kitchen, I saw that she was using one, and from that moment I was sold on the idea.

I bought a single baking sheet, and found it was very useful for roasting vegetables in a shallow tray. The beauty of cooking with a shallow tray is that it doesn't take up much room in the oven, height-wise, so you could cook meat at the top of the oven, vegetables in the middle, and a pudding or sweet on the bottom shelf. This is especially useful if you are cooking for several people, and space in the oven is at a premium.

Once I began using it, I discovered that it was great for baking ready-made pies, pastries, taco shells, fish cakes, frozen chips, crispy baked vegetables, and partially cooked bread sticks.

More Useful Than a Deep Pan

I started to use this flat baking sheet more and more, because it took up less room in the dishwasher than a deep pan, and was therefore more manageable - a bit like finding space for a plate rather than a saucepan, if you get my meaning.

Then I noticed in shops that you could get whole sets of these cookie sheets, and I decided that, regardless of price, I must have a set. In fact they were not particularly expensive at all, well under $20 (approximately £12), and the new ones were non-stick, and therefore very easy to use and keep clean.

So I bought myself a present - a set of three baking sheets, and I have been delighted with them. They are three different sizes, so you can cook, say, lots of baked vegetables on the larger tray, a few chicken Kievs (dare I mention that city whilst it is currently in uproar?) on the medium tray and a few mince pies on the smaller tray. Being non-stick, the trays are particularly easy to clean, and are dishwasher safe.

Here's a Quick and Easy Recipe for Baked Vegetables, Using Your Baking Sheet

You can use various other vegetables by trial and error - some of them are nicer baked than others.

For instance, as well as, or instead of some of the vegetables listed in the ingredients below, you could use sliced potato, sweet potato, aubergine, leek, tomato, celeriac, or breadfruit (but not leafy vegetables like cabbage or spinach) - just experiment.

Cook Time for Mixed Baked Vegetables

Prep time: 8 min
Cook time: 25 min
Ready in: 33 min
Yields: 1 - 2 tablespoonfuls per person

Ingredients - All or Any of These, According to Choice and Availability

  • Onion, peeled and thinly sliced
  • Broccoli, sliced into single florets
  • Red Peppers, de-seeded and cut into chunks
  • Courgettes, sliced
  • 1 or 2 Cloves Garlic, thinly sliced or finely chopped
  • Olive Oil
  • Optional Sprinkling Salt
  • Optional Sprinkling Dried Chilli Seeds

Instructions

  1. Lay out some silver foil to fit the tray, or lay the vegetables direct onto the tray, oiling the surface very lightly with olive oil or olive oil spray
  2. Lay out the prepared vegetables on the oiled surface and sprinkle with a small amount of salt and crushed chilli seeds (if desired). Then add a few drops of olive oil on each vegetable piece and put the tray in the oven Mark 6 or 200 for about 20 minutes, turning over once, so that the vegetables are baked on both sides.
  3. The vegetables should have browned slightly, so if they are not done enough, leave for a further 5 minutes. Then remove and serve with the rest of the meal, or on their own.

      I love the newer non-stick cookie sheets. I have a set of 3 like yours. We use them a lot. Great for re-heating leftover pizza, too.

      I never think to use them for anything but cookies or as a liner to catch a dripping casserole - hm...I'll have to use mine for roasting veggies and other things (or at least try to remember)

      I can't believe that you never used a baking sheet before. These are all nice to have.

      @DawnRae64: I suppose you could always put a tray underneath the tray, to catch the drips :)

      Wow, baked tomatoes never looked so good.

      I've never used cookie sheets, but i've sure ate a lot of goodies baked on them.

      This might be a great Christmas gift.

      Thanks

      We love baking on flat things...cookie sheets and baking stones. Occasionally i get too ambitious for the pan size and things run over the edge. But i still prefer the trays. Nice lens.

      Diana, welcome to the world of baking sheets! :D Another benefit of using baking sheets vs. roasting pans for baked goods is that the lower sides allow air to circulate more evenly and don't create steam/condensation that can affect the texture of the baked goods. Enjoy your new baking sheets - what a wonderful gift to yourself! :)
