Man cannot survive on fast food alone. Make these easy lunch recipes to fuel you during the work day.
Just a simple "no frills" chicken salad recipe I came up with .. can be made quickly and easily with ingredients on hand. Enjoy it on bread, in a pita pocket, or over a bed of lettuce.
Great easy sandwich. New version of a classic. So simple and good, you'll wonder why you hadn't thought of it before.
A delicious ham salad for sandwiches or on top of your favorite crackers.
Don't worry--these don't have eccentric California ingredients! In fact, they are very traditional. The only exception is the use of sourdough bread crumbs, which lend a fuller, tangier flavor than crackers or plain crumbs. Combine the sourdough bread crumbs with a perfect blend of spices and vegetables and lots of crab, and you have a winning combination. Make smaller cakes for appetizers, or larger ones -- like these -- for main dishes. Enjoy!
I pull all the meat off a rotisserie chicken, cut it into small bite size pieces, and add paprika, dry mustard, mayo, and celery. Sample as you fold in all the ingredients!
A delicious and easy way to cook fresh green beans, with a hint of smoky salt from the bacon and interesting herbal notes from the dill. Classic.
As the weather changes, I want a light meal, but I also want to feel like I ate something. This fits the bill.
If you don't have an oven available but you want pizza, this stove-top version using sandwich bread and whatever extra lunch meat you have on hand might be just what you need.
An easy to make sandwich blending the flavors of tuna, avocado and chipotle peppers that results in a tasty, lower-fat alternative to the standard tuna salad sandwich. Easily makes six sandwiches. I prefer using "bolillos" (Mexican rolls) but toasted white or whole-wheat bread works well too. Serve with any kind of chips, tomato wedges, celery sticks etc.
A play on the New England classic, made with imitation crab and a bunch of kick! You can substitute broken shrimp in this recipe as well! Serve with cold crunchy dill pickles!
It's good served smoking hot or chilled. The perfect snack for all oatmeal lovers.
Odd sounding sandwich, but it is delicious. Hey, you might be out of mayo someday and have a hankering for a sandwich!
One of the most basic sandwiches and easy to make.
Here's a great snack kids can make themselves. It is a like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, but with a small tortilla instead.
A buddy of mine LOVES all things pepperoni. So why not dump a bunch into a tomato-based pasta soup and see what happens? Broiled cheese on the top sets it off. Be sure to serve with breadsticks!!!
Simple to make Roast Beef wrap.
A refreshingly easy lunch treat.
Healthy school lunch for kids and adults.
Makes a thick spreadable paste similar to the Loma Linda Sandwich Spread that has been discontinued or Humus. I like it on home made bread with a dill pickle but it is good plain. It is also an excellent cracker spread. Seasonings are optional; you can try other nut butters if you're not into peanuts.
Whoever said that cheese and seafood don't go together is crazy! This quiche is great for breakfast, lunch, or brunch... or for a snack during a good movie.
