Top Lazy Dinner Ideas

Followers are head over heels for my lazy dinner ideas. 30-minute meals, 5-ingredient dinners, and one-pot recipes land high on the most made list! And you cannot go wrong with any of these popular options.

Here are the top breakfast recipes my readers are loving right now:

  • Cheeseburger Tater Tot Casserole – This is a quick and easy dinner that calls for only 4 simple ingredients and is on the table in under an hour! Kid favorite and adult approved.
  • French Bread Pizza Recipe – No time for dough? This one is for you! Homemade pizza sauce is spread over a sliced French loaf. Top with your favorite items, bake, and voila! Easy dinner with minimal effort.
  • Slow Cooked Pork Sandwiches – This is what we like to consider a dump and go meal. Everything is put into the slow cooker in the morning and by evening you have pulled pork that is flavor packed and incredibly tender. Great for sandwiches, nachos, or even pizza!
  • 5-Ingredient Baked Ravioli Recipe – Another dump and go meal. This easy ravioli bake has 5-ingredients and can be prepped in advance.
  • Naan Bread Pizza – Like the French bread version, but single serve! Flatbread, or Naan, is used as the crust and is the perfect way to use up leftovers (creative toppings!).

Easy Dinner Recipe for the Family

We are a small family of three, but often cook for the extended family. Having kid, and adult, approved meals is a MUST.  They have to meet three requirements- Quick, easy, and full of flavor. These are the top five easy dinner ideas.
