3 Lazy Dinner Recipes

Sometimes when we get home at the end of the day, we just do not want to cook dinner. Maybe we’re lazy. Maybe we just don’t have a lot of time on our hands. Either way, it is important to have dinner recipes you can pull out at a moment’s notice and whip up a meal without a ton of effort or time taken. Here are three top examples:

Grilled Sandwiches

Okay, so the most popular is grilled cheese. All you need for this is a few slices of cheese, bread, and butter. Butter the outside of the bread, fil the middle with cheese, and grilled it on a frying pan (or sandwich maker). If you want more to your sandwich, you can add ingredients like spinach, ham, bacon, even apples! This adds interest to your sandwich, along with additional nutrients (depending on what you chose to add).

Quick Salad

One of the most popular salad choices, especially when it comes to eating salad as a meal, is chicken Caesar salad. This salad normally consists of chicken (grilled, sliced), romaine lettuce, Caesar dressing, croutons, and parmesan cheese. You can go for any other type of salad, like a Cobb salad. We just do not recommend relying on the lettuce and dressing alone—add some protein into your salad for dinner!

Simple Spaghetti

When it comes down to it, you can easily get away with cooking noodles and dumping canned sauce on them. If you need a little more substance or nutrients, and most of us do, try buying a package of frozen vegetables and some precooked meatballs. These will need a little more prep (e.g. in the frying pan, oven, or microwave) but it will add more to your simple spaghetti meal without you needing to exert a lot more effort.
