  1. When cooking multiple items, check how long each takes to cook. For example: Let’s say a frozen lasagna takes 60 minutes, garlic bread takes 10, and meatballs 20 minutes or so. Start by baking the lasagna and 40 minutes later, put the frozen meatballs in the oven, and 10 minutes after that, the bread goes in.
  2. What if the cooking temperatures vary between items that need to be prepared? It’s usually ok to split the difference. For example: If one item needs to cook at 400 degrees, and another at 350, you can set the oven for 375.
  3. You can also cook one item in the oven and another in your air fryer. Or one in the oven and another in a skillet, if possible.
  4. Keep in mind that while the hot food is cooking, that’s the time to make a salad and set the table.
