24 baked recipes that will take the stress out of midweek meals

All-in-one dishes to feed the whole family.

By BTYB Fairy
Who doesn't love a one-pan or one-pot wonder? From warming potato bakes to flavourful spins on the Sunday roast, these baked dishes are an easy menu item that will see you right through the cooler months. Not to mention, they're quick to prep and cook, making them a midweek lifesaver when you're short on time.
But while prepping and cooking is simple, it's the wash up that can prove the biggest challenge. These hearty bakes can leave pots and pans covered in tough, greasy stains – not a situation you want to be dealing with late on a weeknight! Fairy dishwasher tablets can help with the after-dinner wash - cleaning dishes with ease with no pre-rinse required either.
So forget the stress of the mess and whip up one of these all-in-one winners. There's sure to be a flavour combo amongst the lot that will become an absolute hit with the family.
