After a busy day, the last thing you want to do is spend hours in the kitchen preparing supper.

Sheet pan suppers make it easy to create dishes with exceptional flavor depth that come together quickly, go straight into the oven and clean up just as fast.

Keeping a variety of vegetables on hand makes it simple to pull together a family meal. Onions, for example, are versatile, flavorful, easy to store, have a long shelf-life and are available year-round from U.S. growers.
