One of my favorite breakfasts is huevos rancheros, so one of my favorite breakfast-for-dinner meals is huevos rancheros. How perfect, then, to have this recipe for Weekday Huevos Rancheros at The Other Side of the Tortilla. It doesn’t get any better or easier, especially for #MeatlessMonday. (You can even keep this vegan and the family will have no idea!)
Pro tip: The salsa verde at Trader Joe’s is a delicious shortcut!
If you’re not familiar with za’atar, a delicious middle-eastern spice mix that’s becoming increasingly popular, this Za’atar Short Rib Stir Fry at Climbing Grier Mountain the perfect introduction. I love the stuff and put it on everything from plain Greek-style yogurt (with a drizzle of olive oil) to avocado toast, so I can’t wait to try this. My mouth is already watering!
The recipe for this Rosemary Citrus One Pan Baked Salmon at Cotter Crunch had me at 20-minutes, but I’d be willing to put more time in given the delicious combination of flavors. The recipe calls for you to roast the fish over asparagus (yay for being a truly one-pan meal with veggies and protein), but if you can’t find any that look good at the market right now, consider green beans.
Have you read this fantastic tutorial on how to cook en papillote? Once you do, you’ll be hooked on the fast, easy, healthy method of cooking, because it’s super versatile, too, and perfect for family-friendly weeknight cooking. Case in point: the Mediterranean Chicken Packets at Real Food by Dad. Everything cooked in packets for the win!
Are you kidding with these thin, stacked Pimento Cheeseburgers at Cooking and Beer? Holy moly they look fantastic! Homemade, fast-food style burgers made with a quick homemade pimento cheese spread sounds like an absolutely perfect way to ring in the weekend.
