McCormick

Whether you’re tackling weeknight dinners or a last-minute dinner party, one-pot meals are your best friend. They have all of the elements we love in a recipe: they come together quickly, taste great and clean-up is minimal. 

With a few great ingredients and an arsenal of spices, there are one-dish options for every course in a meal. We’ve collected some of our favorites below—from mains to sides to desserts, they’ll all help you get dinner on the table in a flash. 

LOUISIANA-STYLE EASY ONE-POT JAMBALAYA

Bringing a taste of New Orleans home is easier than you thought with this one-pan version of the Louisiana classic. Cayenne pepper brings the heat and complements the hearty mix of shrimp, sausage and chicken. It comes together in under an hour and is one of those dishes that tastes even better the next day!

SLOW COOKER CORNED BEEF AND CABBAGE

Irish eyes are smiling whenever this dish hits the table. The slow cooker does the heavy lifting here, making for an easy St. Patrick’s Day main or a hearty meal for a cold winter’s night. Pickling spice adds a pop of acid that balances the rich brisket, creating the corned beef flavour you know and love with minimal effort.

SMOKEHOUSE MAPLE CHICKEN SAUSAGE AND EGG HASH

Hosting brunch is easier than ever with this one-skillet meal. Smoked Applewood and Maple Bacon seasoning add additional depth to everyone’s favorite breakfast flavours: eggs, hash browns and cheddar. It all comes together on the grill, which adds a little extra smoke and makes for an epic presentation. Your house just became the hottest brunch spot in town!

SLOW COOKER SCALLOPED POTATOES

When making dinner for a crowd, the easiest thing you can do is outsource to the slow cooker. First, Gluten-Free Chicken Gravy comes together on the stovetop before coating the potatoes in the slow-cooker. While the gravy and potatoes work their magic, you’re freed up to work on the rest of the menu (or maybe just sneak a few bites of appetizers!).

GREEN BEAN CASSEROLE

It’s a classic for a reason—this casserole is super easy to assemble and sure to please everyone in your family. While the holidays come once a year, we are fans of making this dish year-round. Really, we’ll take any excuse to top a meal with French's® Crunchy Onions.

BLACK FOREST SKILLET CAKE

Dessert on the grill? Excellent party trick. Wow everyone at your next gathering with this one-skillet cake. Rich chocolate and cherries get an unexpected twist from smoky ancho chili and black pepper. The real trick is that it only takes 10 minutes to prep and about 40 minutes to cook, making this dessert even sweeter.
