Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

An easy sheet pan side dish that is super simple to throw together!

I love sheet pan meals and side dishes. Anything that’s easy in the food prep realm I am always game for. Crispy sheet pan potatoes are a favorite of mine, because it’s a super hands off way to make potatoes and also works great as a dinner side, breakfast accompaniment – you name it!

I enjoy that this dish is simple, but combines a lot of really great flavors. The sweet onion, basil and goat cheese truly add to the entire dish in a unique way. I love the melting pockets of goat cheese and the pop of basil as I am eating this. Enjoy this simple and delicious recipe – happy cooking!
