Easy Single-Serving Recipes for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner & Beyond

Dec 23 2020
Question@2x Hi Hungry Girl,

I’m cooking for one these days, and I always struggle to scale down multi-serving recipes. Do you have some favorite everyday recipes that just make a single serving? Thanks!

Answer@2x Hi Solo,

Yes!!! I have a lot of recipes for one. Here are some of my favorites for each meal of the day (and beyond). And keep reading until the end for an exciting announcement and resource for even more single-serving recipes!

Breakfast

A bowl of cereal isn’t your only option! Feel free to add a side of fruit or a slice of toast to that egg mug for a full meal…

Lunch & Dinner

Protein + veggies is a great place to start, but you can dress things up without a lot of effort (or calories)! These meals are delicious and satisfying…

Snacks & More

While I do enjoy the ease of packaged snacks, sometimes I like to DIY. These snacks only require a few ingredients -- I love them!

Today, December 23rd, is National Pfeffernüsse Day. Making these 2-ingredient oat cookies is way easier than spelling "pfeffernüsse."
