They said cooking is better than picking up fast food. Unfortunately, in life, everything moves quickly and to help you keep up here is a list of 10 fast meals that you can prepare in 10 minutes (or less). Ready. Set. Go.
This is the first of the many fast meals. This is a simple and quick meal. All you need is 2 slices of bread, butter, ham or your choice of meat, lettuce, tomatoes, dressing and chips of your choice. Spread butter on each slice of toast and place in the toaster or on top of the stove, until golden. Then apply your desired amount of dressing to the toast. Next, add lettuce and tomatoes on one piece of bread and add your meat to the other slice. Put the slices together and grab a handful of chips and enjoy.
Grab a small block of Velveeta Rotel cheese, milk, tortilla chips, and ground beef. Melt the cheese on the stove and add about ¼ cup of milk. While this is melting on another burning in a skillet cook the beef on medium until brown. Add the beef to the cheese and cook together for about 2 minutes. Place your chips in a bowl and spread your cheese on them.
Grab any vegetables you would like to add, cheese, 2 eggs. Some vegetable examples can be, bell peppers, caramelized onions, olives, sautéed mushrooms, and tomatoes. Cut your vegetables into small pieces. Crack the egg on the skillet and add vegetables. When the egg starts to whiten, add cheese and with a spatula fold half of the egg onto the other side of the egg which should cover the vegetables. Cook for 1 more minute and then enjoy it. This is one of my favorite fast meals that can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
Grilled Cheese Sandwich
You will need just a few items. 2 slices of bread, butter, 2 cheese slices. Warm the skillet on the stove’s burner and butter one side of each bread. Place the bread into the skillet. Once the bread is golden flip it over and then add a slice of cheese to each piece of bread. Once golden combine the bread together and eat up!
If you are more on the healthy side, I got a recipe for you. Grab the amount that you desire of Greek yogurt, strawberries, blueberries, and granola. The more the merrier. In a jar or a bowl layer the bottom by adding the Greek yogurt. Then add the fruits. Then add another layer of Greek yogurt. Finally, top it off with granola, sprinkle as much as you like.
These fast meals don’t require too many ingredients but this one is different. The green you choose would be the most important part of your salad. I prefer a mixture of arugula, spinach, and kale. Whatever green you choose you can’t go wrong. Grab 2 handfuls of your green delight, ¼ cup of shredded carrot, ¼ cup of chopped tomatoes, a few slices of red onion, about 10 chickpeas, 1 garlic clove minced, sprinkle of salt and pepper. Place all the ingredients together in a bowl and toss the salad and then eat!
Set oven to 500° F and greased baking sheet, so it has to be hotter than usual. Place your desired amount of pizza sauce on premade dough and any ingredients you would like to add on top. Ingredients can be things like mozzarella cheese, goat cheese, bell peppers, onions, olives, mushrooms, avocado, fresh basil bacon bits, pepperoni, sausage, artichoke, and so much more! The toppings are whatever you desire. Once the toppings are applied place the pizza in the middle of the oven for 8 minutes.
Instant long-grain rice, sesame seeds, Chinese eggplant, corn, carrot, peas, 2 tablespoons of soy sauce, 2 eggs, and chicken broth. Let’s start with instant rice, this will take maximum of 7 minutes, depending on how you like your rice. While the rice is cooking you can scramble your eggs and then add in your vegetables and chicken broth. When the rice is about 3 minutes from being complete add in the vegetables. Then in 3 minutes, you are done and ready to enjoy this fast meal.
Beef or Chicken Taco
Grab hard or soft tortilla shells, precooked chicken fajita, chopped tomatoes, shredded lettuce, sour cream, salsa, shredded cheese, guacamole, jalapeños, chopped onions, and refried beans. For this fast meal, first warm up the shells in the microwave for about 20-30 seconds, depending on your microwave. Then heat up the beans for about 30 seconds and place them to the side. Then put the chicken in the microwave for 5-7 minutes. When that is done get the shell and add on your desired toppings.
Tuna Fish Sandwich
This meal is very simple and makes great leftovers. All you need is 1 6 oz can of tuna fish- drained, a pinch of salt and pepper, 1 cup of mayonnaise, ¼ cup of chopped celery, 1 teaspoon of lemon juice, a loaf of bread. Mixed everything but the bread together in a bowl. Add more or less of the ingredients. I prefer the mixture to be thick and not so much tuna, so I add less tuna and more mayonnaise. Once you get your mixture to your liking put 1 large spoonful on your bread and dig in.
Bean and Cheese Taco
This is the last of the fast meals, this one takes less than 10 minutes and is one of my favorite meals. You can eat it for breakfast, lunch and even dinner. All you need is 3 items; soft taco shell, refried beans, and shredded cheese. Remember, you can never have too much cheese. To start heat up your refried beans in the microwave for 30 seconds. When it’s done spread your desired amount on your shell. Then my favorite part, the cheese. Grab as much cheese as you like and place it on top of the refried beans. Then fold up that taco and devour! Repeat these few steps as many times as you like.
