HG Staffers' Favorites Recipes

Hi Finding Favorites,

Yup, there's always something new cooking at Hungryland! Every. Single. Day. And everyone here has their go-to recipes...  

If you've been reading HG daily emails for a while, you won't be surprised to hear that we LOVE growing oatmeal bowls: They're delicious, big, and crazy filling. The flavors that get made the most? Blueberry Muffin, classic Apple, and Raspberry White Chocolate. Oh, and for those who prefer sleeping to cooking, these overnight oats recipes earn HUGE marks. Another popular type of breakfast? Egg mugs, a.k.a. microwave-made egg scrambles. Last year, we tried to put together our TOP ATE egg-mug recipes, but we could only narrow it down to these nine!

Is it lunchtime? Then you can find at least one member of the HG team making Slow Cooker Spaghetti Squash. That's usually topped off with low-fat marinara and Parm. Make-ahead HG casseroles like the Noodle-Free Chicken Tetrazzini are another favorite afternoon meal -- cook it once, and eat for days. And for a last-minute lunch, it's common to see some variation of our Scoopable Chinese Chicken Salad being made. The veggie drawer of our fridge is often full of broccoli slaw...

The hungry girls (and boy) here have a soft spot for HG stir-frys. One of them mentioned the Big Green Stir-Fry, and another says this sloppy joe stir-fry is her go-to dinner ("It's a way to get me to eat broccoli… I HATE broccoli!"). The bulked-up mac 'n cheese recipes are also popular, especially this slow-cooker mac made with butternut squash. And there are some major fans of the Slow-Cookin' BBQ Chicken and Dan-Good Chili here at Hungryland.


Okay, here's what I've learned from assembling the answer to your question: Hungry Girl employees love snacking! Many of them mentioned that the Buff Chick Hot Wing Dip is the perfect party snack -- I believe the word "unreal" was batted around a few times. Another fave dunking sauce is the two-ingredient Creamy Guac Dip. When it comes to sweets, Hungrylanders love the Clean & Green Shamrock Shake, the Chocolate-Chip-Stuffed Strawberries, and the Peanut Butter Banana Protein Muffins. And finally, I have to tell you what one staffer said about HG's baked fries: "Don't leave them near me unless you want them all to be GONE."

Wanna know my recent favorites? I'm pretty much obsessed with our Cauliflower Fried Rice with Chicken... Seriously, it's the best thing EVER. I also love our Zucchini So Low Mein with Chicken. This broccoli-bacon salad is another top pick -- who knew grapes and bacon would go so well together? And last but not least, I'm nuts about our Spaghetti Squash Bolognese. I could eat that stuff EVERY day...
