These flavourful traybake recipes are easy to make. Just prepare the ingredients, place them on a baking tray and let the oven do the rest
The worst part about cooking is the clean up afterwards, especially if you’ve just cooked a large dinner for the whole family.
After stuffing yourself with a hot meal, the last thing you want to do is scrub pots and pans.
Traybakes are the easiest way to cook flavour-packed dinners without leaving a trail of dishes behind — prep the food, put it on a tray and pop it in the oven.
