What is your quickest, yummiest meal for one?

I'm the only one that follows LC in my home. Many nights I am able to share the main dish and just make me a different side. BUT....sometimes the fam wants something that is totally not something OP. I have a few things I do but was looking for some new ideas.
So, what is your favorite easiest meal for one?? Also, I am not a leftover eater so alot of people suggest making a casserole and heating it up, but I know that I won't do that. Thus the "for one" part of the request.

I'll share one of mine....

Place chicken breast in baking dish and cover tightly with foil. Bake at 375 for about 30 mins. (or until done). Take out of oven and cover generously with mozzerella cheese, pepperoni and parmesan cheese. Put back in oven and cook until cheese is melted. Serve with a side salad.

I brown some ground beef in a pan, add chopped pizza toppings (mushrooms, onion, whatever I have). Top with mozzarella cheese and sliced pepperoni. Let cheese melt and dot with pizza sauce.

I like to make a White Castle Pie (Linda Sue recipe) and simply take a slice out of the fridge and nuke it when I need a quick meal! Also, steak in the grill pan is a standby for me. Always easy, always delicious.

1) Melt one tbsp butter. Fry 1/3 c chopped onion and 1 c frozen chopped spinach in it (maybe 5 minutes?). Add two scrambled eggs and a few dashes each of hot sauce and nutmeg (cuts the mineral taste of the spinach). You can add a torn-up slice of cheese while the eggs are cooking, or a couple tbsps grated parmesan.

2) Slice half a pound of zucchini. Fry in a tbsp of olive oil with 1/3 c chopped onions. When they look cooked, add 1/3 c canned chopped tomatoes, and 14 slices (one serving according to the package) of pepperoni, cut in quarters. Keep cooking until hot. Stir in 2 tbsp parmesan cheese (garlic and Italian Seasoning is good with this, too).

3) Form half a pound of ground beef into two burgers. Fry. Top with mustard. Cheese optional.

What I do is keep pre-made hamburger patties in the freezer. They are already seasoned and individually saran wrapped. I can defrost in microwave really fast and cook up 1 or 2 for me for a quick meal.

Brown ground beef in pan with a little onion.....add a good size spoonful of cream cheese, a splash of HWC, and a sprinkling of parmesan cheese. Mix it up and eat. Goes good with a side of broccoli.

Great ideas everyone!! Easy ingredients that we all usually have around. I am going to make a printout with all the ideas and have it for quick reference when I need to make something just for me.

no, u are NOT boring, Charcutier...

I AM a family of one, and STEAK & EGGS is one of my all time faves whether it is just myself. or a big crowd. I have been doing a lot of red meat lately. My carno nature is more dominant than ever. I just might have that for dinner, with the remaining 4 spears of roast asparagus. Love & Profits: FLATFERENGHI

Lately, my fav is a tuna melt. If I have an oopsie I will put it on that but not crucial. It is just as tasty and satisfying in a bowl.

My 'old fav' was egg drop soup.

Sometimes when I'm eating without my husband, I just have really good cheese, some almonds and olives. I call it my "appetizers for dinner" night and I like it because I don't have to actually cook anything.

Guess what I am eating right now!

Ground beef, browned with mushrooms, onions & chopped kale, seasoned with Celtic sea salt and garlic powder. That's breakfast!

Whenever I cook up a favorite lc meal, I make a ton of it so I can freeze it in individual sizes. My freezer is a virtual buffet of yummy meals.

I am a very lazy cook, so when I do cook, I cook a LOT.

Absolute quickest?

I chop up some chicken breast and throw it in the skillet with a chopped up bell pepper. I add some Jamaican jerk spices and olive oil. A few minutes later, it's done.

This is my REALLY lazy meal:
Rolled up deli ham with mustard for dipping and sliced cucumbers w/dressing.

Sometimes making a salad seems so daunting.
