Chicken Salad Croissants

Chicken salad is a great way to use leftover chicken from rotisserie chicken from the store or homemade roast chicken. Celery gives this tasty chicken salad a nice crunch, and it has just the right amount of seasoning.

Hot Roast Beef Sandwiches

This is a delicious and easy way to use use leftover roast beef.

Easy Cheeseburger Pie

Easy Cheeseburger Pie is an easy one dish meal that can be adjusted to a variety of flavors. Add Montreal Steak Seasoning for a punch of garlic and black pepper, or serve it with salsa, sour cream, and fresh cilantro for a southwestern flavor. I like to play around with various cheese for variety; Monterey Jack or Irish cheddar would give completely different flavors.

Broccoli & Fettuccine Alfredo

For nights when you have no time for dinner and very little in the way of ingredients on hand, prepared sauces can be a lifesaver, but with fresh ingredients the homemade version is worth the effort.  You can make homemade Alfredo sauce and use fresh broccoli for a quick and easy Broccoli & Fettuccine Alfredo dinner.

Turkey Caprese Sandwiches

You can use either deli sliced turkey or roast turkey slices in this easy and delicious turkey caprese sandwich. One of the best ways you can save money on groceries is to shop when food is on sale, and you can freeze turkey roasts, whole turkeys, and turkey breasts as well as deli turkey slices.

Tuna Casserole

This easy recipe can be made with either chicken or tuna and takes very little prep time. If you prefer, you can make it vegetarian but adding more vegetables and omitting the meat altogether.

Cowboy Hot Dogs

With sautéed onions and shredded cheddar cheese, these hot dogs will please grown ups while leaving the option for kids to eat them however they prefer.

30 Minute Hash Brown Potato Soup

Hash Brown Potato Soup is so quick and easy that it is one of my “crisis meals”—meals that can be made in 20-30 minutes with shelf-stable (or freezer) ingredients that I keep on hand.

Black Beans and Rice

This quick stovetop Black Beans and Rice can be made in the time it takes to cook the rice. Adjust the spices to your taste by using salsa that is hot or mild, or add a chopped jalapeno to the pepper and onion.

Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Soup with a sandwich is often relegated to lunch fare, but it makes an easy and delicious supper when you are short on time. I’m a big fan of sandwich makers to make a quick meal, and I used mine to make grilled cheese sandwiches to serve with this creamy soup.
