There are so many easy recipes to make with pantry ingredients. Here are ten easy recipes for self-quarantine using what you already own.
My family is practicing social distancing during the pandemic and only going out when we absolutely need to. To avoid multiple grocery store runs, we’ve teamed up with my parents/siblings to shop for each other. We all try to purchase food items we can use various ways.
Here are ten easy recipes for self-quarantine using what you already own.
A Western Egg Scramble or Omelette consists of eggs, beans, cheese, onions and peppers. Whether you have canned black beans or kidney beans, Monterey Jack or Cheddar cheese, this dish is simple to make and filling!
Spaghetti (or Ziti) is a staple in our household and has been since I was a little girl. My Mom is Italian, so she was always whipping up something using pasta. An easy pantry recipe is Spaghetti Cacio e Pepe, but if we were eating it at my house there would be a bit of garlic salt and red pepper flakes on top!
Frozen tortellini is a key staple for any pasta loving household since it can be used so different ways. Tortellini Soup with Chicken and Spinach is delicious and easy to make. If you don’t have chicken, try adding white beans, ground turkey, or sausage.
Potato Soup is a mistake-free recipe using pantry ingredients. We add bacon and cheese to this Loaded Baked Potato Soup, made in a crockpot over a few hours.
We ALWAYS have a box of Macaroni and Cheese or the ingredients for homemade Mac N’ Cheese in our house. Noodles, cheese, butter, flour, and milk is everything you need to make one of our favorite comfort foods. Looking for a dairy free option? Or maybe you to make it fun – Bake your Macaroni and Cheese in a Muffin Tin.
If I let my daughters, they would eat cheese and refried bean burritos for lunch and dinner. We always have the necessary ingredients, as well as chips and salsa on the side.
We have never made Fluffy Peanut Sandwiches, but this delicious treat only requires three ingredients. I’ve made the executive decision we will make these for dessert this week.
Never underestimate a package of Ramen Noodles. There are so many fancy ways to make a $.60 pack of Ramen an entire meal – like this Quick Fix for the Ramen Soul or one of these 6 ways to upgrade your Ramen.
Breaded Chicken Breast is moist and delicious – this recipe calls for homemade bread crumbs, but I buy Italian breadcrumbs at the store. It’s prepared, baked, and enjoyed in less than an hour with a multitude of sides. From salad to rice or potatoes, we enjoy breaded chicken breast many different ways.
Lastly, this Chicken Parmesan is my FAVORITE. You can make it so easily with just a few ingredients!
