One Pot Summer Dinners are on the menu this week. Healthy, delicious and easy. One reminds me of the south of France, others are perfectly suited to dinner on the patio. All are easily adaptable, and simple!
One pot dinners are a great option for warm-weather meals. Whether that be on one sheet pan, pot, or skillet. It always means easy clean-up and simple serving.
In the summer, it’s a great way to highlight the bounty of the season. With markets brimming with fresh vegetables, every meal can be adapted to what’s in season at the market.

Another option for one pot dinners made easy in the summer is the slow cooker and Instant Pot or pressure cooker.
Here are some recipe ideas using these easy appliances. I especially love the Instant Pot in the summer as it helps keep the kitchen extra cool!

One Pot Summer Dinners
On Monday, we’re having breakfast for dinner — skillet style. It’s a simple, quick-fix dinner, packed with summer produce. Add your favorite July vegetables for Monday’s dinner.
Tuesday’s dinner is a simple, healthy, refreshing seafood dinner that reminds me of southern France. I’m not sure why unless I’m remembering a very similar meal I will never forget on a very hot August evening in Nice. Simple, flavorful food is what I love best about that region.
For Wednesday, it’s a one-pot pasta that is easy to customize with your favorite ingredients. The recipe is written for ground beef, but any ground meat will do (you can even eliminate it if you wish)!
Thursday’s dinner is a one skillet shrimp and brothy beans dinner that seems perfectly suited for a summer evening on the patio.
On Friday, we’re grilling. Which could be done indoors or out, whether that be a BBQ or even a skillet on the stovetop. It’s a chicken dinner packed with charred corn and zucchini! Yum.
The treat is a classic favorite I’m sure you’ve made a time or two.
Have a wonderful week!
