Busy cooks know the value of a good One Dish Dinner. Once you find recipes for easy weeknight meal ideas, you want to hang onto them for years.
A week of one dish dinner ideas includes some Crockpot recipes with veggies and meat as well as stove top meals and oven baked dishes. Comfort foods and summer one dish dinners are included also.
Crockpot One Dish Dinner Ideas
We make this Crockpot recipe for Corned Beef & Cabbage a couple times each year. It’s a good St. Patrick’s Day dinner and it is always a good Fall recipe.
This Crockpot Pierogi recipe with Meatballs and Alfredo sauce is super easy to toss together for a weeknight meal. Ready in 2 to 3 hours on low or 4 to 6 hours on high in your Slow Cooker.
Anytime you are in the kitchen trying to create a new recipe, you hope it will turn out to be tasty and requested again. That is what happened when I created this recipe. My family loves this cheesy macaroni and cheese with sausage, broccoli and tomatoes. I love how easy it is to prepare this one dish meal.
Comfort Food One Dish Dinner Ideas
A hearty stick-to-the-ribs comfort food meal that leaves good leftovers for lunch the next day. A good chicken pot pie recipe to make again and again.
Foil Pack Dinners are great one dish dinner ideas and easy to prepare plus you get to toss the ‘pan’ in the trash afterwards.
Our Classic Lasagna recipe does not use a ton of ingredients so it won’t break the bank or leave the kitchen a disaster.
Shrimp Fried Rice is an easy recipe to make at home when you are craving some Chinese Food. Incorporate this recipe into your Weeknight Dinner Ideas because it’s an easy stir fry one dish dinner with lots of flavor and a nice change of pace.
