10 Easy Meals To Make When You’re Home Alone

It’s safe to say that everyone has been in the same boat of being home alone and having no idea what to eat. Ordering food can be expensive and snacking isn’t always healthy. Here’s a list of 10 meals that are easy to make when you are home alone. 

1. Omelette

The task of preparing an omelette may seem daunting, however, all that’s actually needed is eggs, milk, and any ingredients you’d like to include in your omelette. Simply mix your eggs and milk, put it in a pan, and add your ingredients to the mix, then enjoy. 

2. Grilled Ham and Cheese

Think of making grilled ham and cheese as preparing a sandwich on the stove. Butter your toast, toast it, and incrementally add ham, cheese, and any veggies you’d like. Then add your second piece of bread and flip. It’s as easy as that. 

3. Buffalo Chicken Dip

Dip is a great compliment to most snacks, but salsa and guacamole are boring. Making buffalo chicken dip is both easy and delicious. Mix cream cheese, cheddar cheese, blue cheese, chicken, and hot sauce in a bowl. It can be eaten both cold or warm and cooks relatively quickly in the oven. Eat with chips…or by the spoonful (no one will judge).

4. Pasta

The steps to making pasta are as follows: Boil water, add pasta, wait for the pasta to cook. There is not much easier to make than a bowl of pasta. Season the pasta with whatever for endless flavors and possibilities.

5. Salad

Feel like eating healthy, but don’t want to spend $15 on the same old salad? Make one yourself. A salad can consist of anything from meat to nuts to fruit, and everything in between. The only efforts required are a bit of chopping, mixing, and tossing.

6. Hamburgers and Hotdogs

It doesn’t require a genius to make hamburgers or hotdogs. In fact, almost anyone can do it. For optimal cooking, place patties/dogs on a grill and cook for 10-15 minutes. Rotate hotdogs every few minutes and flip the burgers halfway through. Don’t waste money on expensive burgers when they are this easy to make.

7. Wraps

Feeling sick of boring old sandwiches? Make a wrap! Wraps are very easy to make and give for a different flavor than the same regular sandwich. Tuna fish, veggies, chicken; Whatever you put in your wrap is sure to make it a delicious meal.

8. Ramen with Hard-Boiled Eggs

Ramen is one of the easiest foods to make, however, is not always the healthiest. By buying organic brands and adding outside ingredients, you can make your ramen both delicious and healthy. Simply cook the ramen and boil your eggs and within 15-20 minutes you’ll have a meal that’s not only tasty but also loaded with protein.

9. Tacos

Whether soft shell or hard, tacos never fail to make for a delicious meal. Making tacos is about as easy as cooking the meat. Place your beef/chicken/steak in a pan, cook, and enjoy with whatever ingredients you manage to gather from the fridge or pantry.

10. Smoothies

If you have access to a blender at home smoothies are the perfect thing to make. Fruits are high in nutrients and vitamins, and a smoothie provides an easy way to get the most out of a variety of different fruits and even some vegetables. Try one with banana, strawberry, apple, mango, and kale, or make whatever you desire.
