Your favorite easy recipe?

Asked by Minute_And_A_Huff (588points) June 26th, 2010

I need an easy recipe where I don’t have to buy a whole lot of ingredients. What’s your favorite 5 ingredient or less recipe (not including salt/pepper)?

Grilled cheese sandwiches

2 slices or bread
1 slice of cheese
A little bit of butter

Spread butter on one side of each slice.
Put one slice in a frying pan.
Layer the slice of cheese on that piece of bread.
Put the other slice of bread on top of the cheese.

Make sure either buttered side is facing out.
Cook as long as you wish.

Ad a slice of ham if you’re feeling frisky.

I learn this recipe from this site. And that’s my new favorite recipe. It’s so easy(I think It’ll take quite a long time but I love slow cooking).

Onigiri (rice balls). Simple and easy to make, affordable, nutritious, and fills an empy stomach. You roll rice into fairly large balls and fill them with vegetables, salmon, egg, etc., and eat them with your fingers. My Mom used to make them for me when I was little. Here’s a recipe:

Hot chocolate fondant. Really is one of the simplest yet nicest chocolate desserts. Nicest thing is 4/5 of the ingredients you should have lying around all the time.

Recipe makes 2, but can be double/tripled etc.

50g dark chocolate. The darker the better, although you can always add cocoa powder
50g butter plus extra for greasing
50g flour
50g sugar
2 eggs

1. Melt chocolate and butter together until smooth, and let to cool for 5 minutes
2. Whisk sugar, 1 egg and 1 egg yolk in a bowl until pale and thick.
3. Sieve flour into the bowl and add the chocolate and butter mix.
4. Fold everything together
5. Add to two already buttered ramekins
6. Put into a preheated oven at 160°C for 14 minutes.
7. Remove from ramekins and serve with cream/icecream and/or dust with icing sugar.

There are some nice alterations to this recipe – such as adding liquor or chilli flakes to the chocolate mix in stage 1, but this goes over the 5 basic ingredients. Original recipe had 60g of sugar, but I found 50g is still fine and saves you 5g per serving :P. Can probably use sweetener to save your soul.

Am going to try this recipe with white chocolate to see if it works out if anyone is interested in finding out what happens.

Roast with gravy

3lb – 4lb Chuck Roast
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
1 can tomato soup
1 packet Lipton Onion Soup Mix

Preheat oven to 300. Put the roast in a roaster pan, mix soup and Lipton soup mix together with a can full of water and pour over roast. Cook covered for 3 hours, turning every hour. The last hour, cook uncovered and turn again at the half hour mark. Makes the best, most tender roast and gravy! You can also cook in the crock pot on low for 7–8 hrs.

I always make mashed potatoes and corn and mix it all together in a bowl. Yum! Talk about comfort food… :)

Stewed Lamb:

Cheapest cuts of lamb I find
1 bell pepper in big chunks
1 onions in big chunks
1 #10 can of peeled tomatoes, use the lid of the can to chop them up while still in the can.
Ground pepper and salt to taste
put in covered casserole dish and bake at 400 for a few hours until the meat is all tender.
option: I rummage through the frig for “expiring” vegies and throw them in too.
Cook up a box of wild rice Rice o Roni (I use only ½ of spice packet) and serve the cooked goulash over the top.
