Lazy Food:
Really Quick, Really Easy Recipes

Sometimes it is just too hot to cook, or you're just too busy, too tired... or lazy.  Here a few quick and easy recipes that are easy for beginning cooks to make but also taste great:

MomsRetro Lazy Egg Salad Sandwich

This 'salad' uses all the same ingredients as normal egg salad, it's just a lot easier, and it's perfect for just one person.


2 Slices of Bread, or Hot Dog Bun, or Cut-Open Roll or...
Worcestershire Sauce
Paprika (optional)
Salt and Pepper to Taste
Sliced Hard-Boiled Egg

Spread mayonnaise on both slices of bread.  If you like a lot of mayo, use a lot, just use an equal amount on each slice.

On ONE of the slices, spread on a small amount of mustard.  About one spoonful or less, mustard is the spicy part.  Mix it around on top of the mayo.

On the 'mustard' slice, add 2 to 3 drops of
Worcestershire Sauce.  This is the secret ingredient.

Layer hard boiled egg slices on bread.  Top with salt and pepper to taste and put sandwich together.  Enjoy!

Note:  This is a great sandwich recipe to make and refrigerate for later.  The longer your ingredients have to blend together, the better your sandwich.  Just wrap it up and keep your snack chilled in the fridge for a few hours.

Quick and Easy Pasta Salad


Cooked pasta
Salad dressing of your choice

This is a two step recipe if you have salad dressing.  Just cook your pasta and drain.  Use bow tie pasta, macaroni or a special salad pasta.  You will adjust your dressing amount accordingly. 

Good dressings to try with this recipe are Italian, ranch or green goddess.

Pour salad dressing onto pasta and chill.  Pasta salad can be chilled overnight or for a few hours.  Make sure your container is sealed, you can use a heavy duty freezer bag in a pinch.

Start with a small amount, maybe 1/2 cup of dressing to start.  Mix in and taste.  You can always add more dressing but it's hard to take out.  If you add too much, some will soak into the pasta in a few hours.

Quick Egg or Pasta Salad Additions:

Jazz up the basic recipe with any of the following easy additions:

chopped olives,
artichoke hearts (undrained if you like the taste),
chopped avocado,
shredded cheese,
chopped ham,
bacon bits (great with creamy dressings),
chopped carrots.
