Goodbye, lovingly-made baon from home. And hello, fend-for-yourself meals. Accept it, kiddos! The sooner you do, the sooner you can master the art of baon-making. Don’t even think about relying on restaurants or takeout; that’s simply a fast ticket to brokeville.
The omnipresent excuse of I don’t have time isn’t going to cut it, either. What’s half a day of cooking compared to a whole week of enjoying hassle-free, budget-friendly meals? Make these baon recipes in advance, and face the week utterly confident you won’t go hungry!
8. Toasty Mac & Cheese
Why settle for instant mac & cheese when you can easily make the version from your dreams? Once you’ve achieved the mouthwatering product, just cover it with plastic wrap and freeze for up to 3 months. And when it’s eating time, all you gotta is thaw the pasta, cover it with foil and bake for just a few minutes.
7. Salmon & Black Sesame Onigiri
You don’t have to be a skilled sushi chef to enjoy great onigiri. It’s as easy as combining cooked rice, flaked smoked salmon (or your choice of fish) and seasoning, and then forming the mixture into balls. The nori strip secures the onigiri and adds even more 6flavor.
To keep, wrap it in plastic wrap and refrigerate. Just pop it in the microwave for 30 seconds when you’re about to eat.
6. Freezer Breakfast Sandwiches
Take the time to assemble these breakfast sandwiches, and you’ll definitely be the envy of every cranky, hungry, non-morning person. Go ahead and let them take a bite. They’ll be put in a good mood (like you) right after tasting the scrumptious combination of egg, ham, cheese and English muffin.
5. Baked Spinach & Tomato Penne
In the world of advance-baon-making, consider the casserole your ever-dependable BFF. Casseroles require just a bit of sautéing, and then you can leave it in the oven to turn delicious on its own. Just remember to put on a timer!
This particular recipe is a healthy, full meal that will definitely solicit ooohs and aaahs from everyone around you.
