Make-Ahead Baked Egg Sandwiches
Easy baked egg breakfast sandwiches. Another frugal recipe that can be made ahead and frozen, then microwaved for fast breakfasts on the run. Try using other cheeses for extra flavor. I used Colby-Jack Slices. My boys loved this recipe!
One Pot Pasta
Quick, easy, and one of our favorites. Note: You must use a nonstick pan to keep it from sticking.
Grandma Maggio's Spaghetti Sauce
This Italian tomato sauce from Grandma is one that was recited to me, from memory alone, and used descriptions like "a hand of garlic," though the quantities listed now should be accurate. I encourage buying the cheapest versions of these ingredients you can find; it will feed an army for about $15 without ruining the taste. You should add more seasonings based on preference. A great vegetarian sauce, or with meatballs, makes great meatball sandwiches.
Baked Potato with Mushrooms
A big baked potato topped with sautéed mushrooms and a dollop of yogurt is an easy and filling meal after a long day at the office or before a game. Starting the potato in the microwave speeds up the total cooking time. I like to serve this with a salad or green beans.
Just like twice-baked potatoes, except these are cooked twice in the microwave for a faster but equally tasty result. Russet potatoes, cheese, green onions, and sour cream star in this hearty side dish.
Mongolian Beef and Spring Onions
A restaurant-quality dish of beef and green onions with a soy-based sauce.
Baked Teriyaki Chicken
Teriyaki chicken thighs are baked in the oven with a deliciously sticky glaze.

Blue Cheese and Garlic Bread
A friend showed this to me years ago, and I added and changed amounts around to fit my taste. This goes great with any pasta dish, steak, or even seafood. If stored in a plastic bag, either open bag and microwave with a cup of water in microwave, or place 1 tablespoon of water in bag to ensure moist bread after heating.
Berbere Spiced Chicken Breasts
One of my favorite uses for berbere spice is this berbere chicken breast recipe. But you can also use a pork chop or a piece of lamb; it's so versatile.
