How often do you find yourself needing a quick and easy dinner recipe? Or, what about a one-pot meal? We have found that these are the easiest meal solutions for our kids. Not to mention, it is simple for us to prepare and cook. It’s really a win-win for everyone.
We usually begin with mac & cheese. Why? The kids love it and it is such a versatile dish! Plus, with a few diet restrictions in the house, the Horizon® Gluten-Free Macaroni & White Cheddar Cheese is an excellent choice for our family. Not to mention, it is easy to make and ready in minutes. And it is made with organic pasta from a blend of rice, lentil, and corn flour in addition to real Horizon organic cheese. This means that it is good for your family too!
Now, if you have 20 minutes you can have a nice warm, one-pot meal based solely on the Horizon Gluten-Free Macaroni & White Cheddar Cheese. OR… you can add in a few different simple ingredients and really make it a full meal. A little protein and/or veggies and you have a balanced meal for your little ones! Here are just a few ideas:
- Baked Chicken Strips
- Peas and Carrots
- Bacon and Chive
- Ground Hamburger Meat
- Peas, Bacon and Shredded Cheese
- Macaroni Salad
And these are really just the beginning. Get creative and use foods you know your kids already eat and enjoy. You know, like chicken nuggets! You are adding more value and substance to their plates and they just enjoy the food!
Add a Lowfat Chocolate Milk Box from Horizon to the meal for the perfect drink. For dessert, a bowl of Honey Snack Grahams are a delicious, kid-friendly treat for any time of day! They are made with organic wheat and offer 8g of whole grains per serving. Thus, an ideal way to top off the tasty one-pot meal. Kids and parents alike can be full… and happy.
What is your favorite one-pot meal?
