Easy Weeknight Dinners

Nothing is better than going home to good food.

For some of us, midweek dinners can be a real chore, so we resort to take-out or pre-prepared meals bought from our local supermarket.  Yet we can do better than that.  These recipes are all delicious, easy, quick and healthy.  So why not try spending a half-hour cooking something, rather than buying an

The last thing you want to do after a long day at work is spend ages standing at the stove making dinner.  So, from Averie Cooks we have this baked ham and cheese omelette, and ham and cheese are such a great pairing.

A pasta bake is such an easy and versatile dish, and Amanda Wren-Grimwood, at Chez Le Rêve Français, has this great recipe for a chicken and broccoli pasta bake.  Most of us should be able to whip this up in a half-hour.  Looks delicious to me.

If you are having friends over, or you just want something more exotic, Petra at Food Eat Love has this onglet steak with loaded fries.  This will take you 10 to 15 minutes to prepare, and you can make yourself a great salad while it’s all cooking.

Talking of great salads, Tieghan Gerad at Half Baked Harvest has just posted this utterly beautiful Tuscan summer stone fruit, tomato, and burrata panzanella salad.  I love Tuscan and this is one recipe I am certainly going to put on my own regular diet.

If you are vegetarian, or vegan, then maybe try this fresh tomato spinach garlic pasta from San Francisco Lady Andrea at Cooking with a Wallflower.  This dish has just a few ingredients and should be ready in 30 minutes.

Finally for this week, from Chungah at Damn Delicious we have 10 weeknight chicken breast recipes ~ including this fabulous chicken lazone.  Always worth keeping some chicken breasts in your freezer, all you have to do is remember to take what you need out of the freezer in the morning and put it in the refrigerator.

If you have a slow cooker, then try using that to make a weeknight dinner, which will last you a couple of days ~ and you can also take to work for lunch.  There are some slow cooker recipes on an earlier post of mine.

  2. Okay, now … it is 4:00 a.m. over here on this side of the pond … I am working at catching up on my friends’ blogs, sipping coffee and chain-smoking, saying “just one more post, then I am going to bed” … and NOW, Jack Collier, you have made me hungry!!! I will eat a granola bar, though it will not compare to these pictures … and next week, perhaps I shall try one of your recipes! ❤

      1. Definitely!!!! But … at 4:00 a.m., I am highly UNLIKELY to make an omelet. More likely to grab a handful of crackers and some hummus — sweet red pepper flavour, of course! 🙂

  3. I may have to try the omelette—One thing I do to help prepare for meals is kind of odd. When I purchase ground meat, I cook it all at once. Then, after it cools, I measure it and put it in freezer bags or in containers. If I am going to make something for dinner which needs ground beef, it is easy to pull it from the freezer and use it.
