Need some quick, easy meals that don’t require a ton of ingredients? Here’s 10+ of my favorite 5 ingredient dinner recipes that you can make in minutes!
Hello! I hope you’re feeling great today! We got our “Stay at Home” order from the governor last night. And since it seems to be happening throughout the country, I thought I’d put together a round up of some of my favorite 5 ingredient dinner recipes.
Hopefully, these recipes will help you throw together some easy meals for the family…without having to venture out to the grocery store.
And even if you can get to the store, who knows whether or not you’ll be able to get the things you need right now?!
Most of these recipes take less than an hour to make, too! Soooo…BONUS – no spending hours in the kitchen!
You can adapt the recipes as needed to fit the ingredients you have available…
No French bread for French Bread Pizza Burgers (recipe below)? Use Italian instead.
No Italian bread? Use any bread you have on hand. If you don’t have any bread, but you have baking supplies, then try making my Basic Italian Bread recipe.
It’s easy to make and only requires 6 basic ingredients…water, sugar, flour, salt, oil, yeast, egg. Then, use it in place of the French Bread or any other bread you might need.
No ground beef? Use ground chicken, lamb, turkey or pork instead. Or chop up leftover meat of any kind.
And so on…
Don’t be afraid to substitute ingredients to your liking or to what you have available in your pantry. You’ll never know what something tastes like if you don’t try!
Alright…moving onto these delicious 5 ingredient dinner recipes…
