Hi Hungry Girl,

I love all your recipes, but I'm usually cooking dinner for my entire family. What kid-friendly meals have you got that feed four or more?

Hi Mama in Maine,

Healthy Multi-Serving Meals

First things first, here's a neat little trick: To search the HG site for only recipes that make four servings, type this into the search bar: directions, makes 4 servings. Or just click here! Now, on to some of my top picks for family-friendly meals. Check 'em out...

Mac 'n cheese and more. Kids of all ages love mac 'n cheese, and there are plenty of HG recipes for it. This Mega Mac & Cheese is classic and easy, the Big Bacon Mac 'n Cheese is adored by all, and our Cheesy-Good Tuna Mac has "kid friendly" written all over it! Wanna really up the protein? This SW Chicken Mac 'n Cheese is a must-try. (Skip the chili powder if the kids don't do spicy.) As for other pasta meals, check out this Takes-the-Cake Ziti Bake, our Veggie-rific Noodle-Free Lasagna (shhh... they'll never guess), and this Funkadelic Chili Mac.

Casserole city. Easy to prepare and the cleanup is minimal... What's not to love about casseroles? Okay, the kiddos may need more convincing than that, so give them the following choices: Hungry Duke Casserole (cheesy, beefy, biscuit-y goodness), Taco-rific Spaghetti Squash Bake (as yummy as it sounds), or Bacon Cheeseburger Egg Bake (breakfast for dinner)!

Kid-sized servings. Personal pot pies and mini meatloaves? Yes, please! These Mini Veggie Pot Pies are amazing. And this email serves up Three-Cheese & Veggie Deep-Dish Pizzettes, Cheese-Filled Mini Meatloaves, and an entire roundup of multi-serving recipes with individual portions.

Meat 'n potatoes. Speaking of individual portions, these Mashie-Topped Meatloaf Cupcakes are mind-meltingly good! And here's a yummy one: Easy Shredders Pie, a.k.a. creamy meat filling topped with hash browns! Last but not least… Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole. 'Nuf said.

Hungry for more? Check out this kid-friendly recipe roundup from last year! Tacos, a tater-tot casserole, chicken dressed up like pizza, and MORE. Awesome!

Don't hog all the recipes... Pass 'em along to all your friends with kids! Click "Send to a Friend" NOW.


It's the first week in May, which means it's National Raisin Week. Now, raisins alone are kind of a meh snack, but they rule in this Rais' the Roof PB&J Quesadilla!
