What recipe ideas do you employ to help make serving meals a little easier and less reliant on dining out?
Throughout the past year, Lunch It Punch It has shared recipe ideas that can be made ahead of time and packed in a lunch, which means they work well for this time of year. The Mini Meat Loaf recipe allows you to customize with for Italian, BBQ or Mexican tastes. Lin’s Little Chicken Pot Pies are perfect serving sizes for kids and adults and they can be frozen so you can make a batch and save for later.
My Baked Spaghetti is not just my favorite it was fan approved by two Lunch It Punch It fans and it can also go in the freezer for use later in the week. When you’re running short on time and haven’t made any meals ahead, try this Fast Creamy Chicken Pesto Pasta. When you need a feed a group, choosing Italian or Mexican-based meals helps because you can size up the recipes and these Taco Burritos are a nice twist on the usual. Don’t forget to pair it with Mexican Rice a nice guest post from fan, Emmy!
If you’re looking for an easy breakfast casserole that can be made ahead of time and baked in the oven while people are getting ready in the morning, try this Sausage Egg Casserole. The Easy Fruit Crostata works well at breakfast or as a dessert.
And if you want to get festive, you can make a shrimp tree like I did for my family Christmas party!
