Not a fan of leftovers? Make just enough with these breakfast, lunch, and dinner recipes for two. 

Plus, each of these recipes can be made in roughly 30 minutes or less. 

  1. Honey Glazed Salmon and Zoodles

    Take a giant short cut and pick up spiralized zucchini noodles in the produce section at Hy-Vee. That puts you 10 minutes closer to dinner and shaves at least 10 minutes off cleanup. 

  2. Cheesy Tuna Melts

    For a quick lunch or casual dinner, don't forget about this quick and easy option.

  3. Walnut Crusted Salmon

    This recipe calls for using a salt plate to bake the salmon. If you don't have one, no worries. Just use a greased sheet pan. On the side, try a simple Green Bean Gremolata, Apricot Rice Pilaf, or roasted veggies.

  4. Loaded Pancake Sandwiches

    Fruit and yogurt is great for you in the morning, but every now and again, who doesn't crave a Loaded Pancake Sandwich? 

  5. Turkey Zucchini Thai Noodle Salad

    It's fun. It's different. It's quick. And it's got ALL the veggies and protein to keep you feeling full. 

  6. Pan Seared Rib Eye Steaks

    Ok, so these two steaks could technically serve four. But who doesn't want leftover steak to make quick work of Caesar Steak Wraps, Steak Sandwiches, or a Steak Salad the next day? 

  7. Citrus Cream Waffles

    From frozen to fabulous, make your own flavored syrup to top your morning toaster waffles.
