Feeding a large family can be a challenge, especially if you find yourself running short of recipes and ideas. Trying to coordinate everyone’s meal preferences and tastes can also be a challenge. Fortunately there are some recipes that almost everyone in your family, including the pickiest eaters will enjoy.
Casseroles are a good choice for a main course for large families because recipes can easily be doubled or even tripled if necessary, and the possibilities are almost endless. You can do a quick breakfast casserole by combining egg, ham and cheese and mix in other seasonings and toppings, if desired. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 10 to 30 minutes depending on the amount and type of ingredients used. You can also do a lot of chicken and rice casserole by following recipes are on the backs of rice packets.
Spaghetti and meatballs is a perennial favorite, since this meal is both affordable and easy to make in large quantities. You can experiment using different types of pasta and sauces and add vegetables and other ingredients for the sauce. You can also replace turkey, chicken or soy for hamburger in meatballs.
If you have a grill, you can create large amounts of hamburgers, hot dogs, grilled chicken and other dishes at once. Try the grilled veggie skewers for a healthier option too. If you have a large freezer, you can buy large quantities of meat when it’s on sale and then freeze it to use later, saving you both time and money.
