Dish it Out

Stock your cabinets with a few multi-purpose ingredients that will make preparing and storing Meal Ideas For One a breeze. By and large, ceramic and glass casserole dishes are considered microwave safe, but it doesn’t hurt to double-check for a seal or symbol on the bottom of the pan or on the packaging.

Ideally, you should choose containers with lids so that you can pop on the top and store in the fridge or freezer. What’s better than knowing there’s Comfort Food available in the freezer whenever the craving strikes? Just remember, if you’re pulling a prepped dish straight from the freezer, it’s not a bad idea to let it sit before directly throwing it into the microwave — even microwave-safe bakeware can be susceptible to thermal shock.  There’s no better recipe to try than our Cheesy Chicken and Rice Recipe with Broccoli when the urge strikes.


A crunchy topping is the perfect finishing touch. Don’t simply skip the breadcrumbs; there are plenty of options in your pantry that make great substitutes! Pretzels, crackers, cornflakes or potato chips will give your dish the crunch you’re craving.

Alternatively, seeds and nuts bring both texture and new flavor notes. There are other options, like rolled oats, that can be used when mixed in – as in meatloaf – but aren’t ideal as a topping as they won’t crisp up as well.
