Every mom has her "go to" dinners...The super quick, super easy meals. Meals the majority of the family claims at least one as a favorite.
These are the most requested, most cooked, and most eaten meals at my house. Funny thing, when we have people over for dinner, my family still requests these dishes- I just "supe them up".
Presenting: The Boyer Family Top 5
5. Loaded Quesadillas
One of my favorite recipes is Cowboy Quesadillas by Our Best Bites. Love it! But, not everyone in family family does. So, I set out several yummy items to put in quesadillas, and then let each person choose what they want in theirs, and put it in a bowl. Then I mix it with cheese, and cook.
Ideas for filling: chopped tomatoes, rice, corn, green onions, black beans, bbq sauce, salsa, cilantro, chicken...
We LOVE dipping the quesadillas in ranch & bbq sauce (equal parts of each)-- if we've used bbq sauce in the filling.
4. Pasta Bar

3. Million Dollar Meatballs and Rice
Ingredients: Package of frozen meatballs, jar of grape jelly, jar of chili sauce
|This is the best kind of chili sauce, but there are other good brands. Just make sure it's chili SAUCE - not Chili!|
Serve with rice and a veggie. Delish!
2. Potato Boats

I bake potatoes. Let them cool for a few minutes. Cut in half and scrape out the insides. Then add filling of choice - my kids LOVE cottage cheese, ranch, salt and pepper. Fill the potato skins. Eat.
(Kind of a twice baked potato without baking twice).

My kids just like a little butter and brown sugar on their crepes.
When we have guests, I serve lots of toppings: strawberries, bananas, pineapple, mandarin oranges, berries, lemons to squeeze, nutella, biscoff, powdered sugar, chocolate, brown sugar, peanut butter, whipping cream.... anything else on hand.
What are your "go to" meals???
