Comfort classics are matched up with light and easy recipes this week to make balanced meals that are perfectly delicious and simple to make! Your family is going to love eating these meals as much as you will enjoy making them. Monday Menu has everything you need to get tasty meals on the table for breakfast and dinner with snacks and dessert!
This Week’s Secret To Success
These meal ideas are the perfect balance of comfort food and light and easy recipes. For instance, Classic Chicken Fried Steak Fingers with their crisp breading is deliciously complemented by the light pops of spring that a layered spring salad brings.
Not only do they taste delicious on the same plate, but they are balanced in cooking and prep time too. Recipes like Chicken Fried Steak Fingers that take a bit more cooking should always be pared with dishes that can be whipped up with little to no effort, so that the meal stays simple and isn’t too big of an ask to put together.
Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad is a quick and easy recipe that gets a touch of its own classic comfort with Homestyle Deviled Eggs.
And 3 recipes this week share a little bacon, meaning you can prep that ingredient once and be ready all week long! Enjoy!
Dessert This Week
Chocolate Meringue Pie is an old fashioned chocolate pie recipe with a dark, rich chocolate filling balanced by a soft, fluffy meringue topping. I’m sharing my grandmother’s signature recipe and all my best tips for a successful pie every time!
Here’s What We’re Snacking On
I can eat my weight in these Ham & Dill Pickle Rollups! They make great after school snacks and are awesome appetizers at picnics, game nights, and cookouts. These aren’t just your ordinary rollups, these are made pinwheel style with a little red pepper kick.
Making Breakfast Easy
Tender, moist with a sweet crackle crust and loads of chunky apples, this Cinnamon Apple Quick Bread is drizzled with a cinnamon glaze and filled with all the warm, sweet flavors you’d expect from an old fashioned apple recipe while still being easy to make. A warm slice with a cup of coffee or glass of milk is an excellent way to start the day!
