One item that is always on my shopping list is eggs! Boiled, poached, scrambled or dressed up as eggy bread, served with a side of bacon, baked beans, sauteed mushrooms or baby spinach, with or without toast, eggs take just minutes to prepare and form the backbone of my dinnertime back-up meal. You know, that one super quick meal that you can always turn to on the day you just don’t feel like cooking, or you forgot to take meat out to defrost, or you forgot to set up the slow cooker…all of which happen with reasonable regularity in our house! My Quicker Than Takeaway Tuna Pasta was our easy, dinner back-up for the longest time but with the little one turning her nose up at anything fish-related and the fact that a gluten and dairy free cheese sauce is just not quite the same, it’s been retired for the time being.
Always on the lookout for quick and easy dinner recipe ideas, I would love to extend my collection of back-up ideas so I am wondering, what is your dinnertime back-up meal?
