Lunch Recipe Roundup
In a lunch rut? Here are 20 delicious lunch recipes that are easy, exciting, and delicious!
Need delicious lunch recipes? Do you ever get in a lunch rut? You know, when you stand in front of the refrigerator and think something different will magically appear? Lunch is often difficult when we don’t plan for it.
I’m not a big breakfast eater, so when lunch rolls around I want something a little more substantial. One solution for a lunch rut is to make a bit extra at dinner and eat it for lunch the next day. This is what I do quite often. Or I make things like soup in the morning so they are ready for lunch.
Here are lunch recipes that will get you out of a rut for sure!
HERBY ITALIAN ORZO SALAD
I love a delicious salad that eats like a meal at lunchtime. This Italian salad is full of herby flavors, creamy orzo, olives, feta, and more! This salad would be great for lunch or dinner.
APRICOT BRIE GRILLED CHEESE ON CHALLAH BREAD
I love how Becca describes this sandwich, as ” the dessert of grilled cheese“. Just the image makes me want to lick my computer screen. LOL! It hits so many notes: sweet, salty, peppery, and buttery.
If you don’t have challah bread another enriched bread would work too!
BLT SALAD RECIPE
This salad has all the scrumptious aspects of a BLT but is far less messy!
This is such an easy recipe for me to assemble. I bake bacon in my oven and then freeze it so I can pull it out and microwave it until it sizzles. And I have hardboiled eggs on hand too. YUM!
Thanks, Erica for this great salad recipe!
EGG SALAD RECIPE
I’m a huge fan of egg salad! It’s delicious on toast for breakfast or for lunch. And this recipe is both easy using ingredients for maximum flavor. YUM!
Natasha, you are amazing and so is your egg salad!
LOADED BAKED POTATO SOUP
This soup is delicious and filling and takes taste inspiration from a loaded baked potato. I make this for dinner and have it ready for lunch the next day.
