Double-Duty Dinners

Double-Duty Dinners

Plan for not one, but two (or even three) evenings' meals. These ‘planned-overs’ create new meals from a previous night's dinner and give you more time to spend doing what you love.

Green Giant and Old El Paso Sponsors

If you cook for two or brown bag for lunch double-duty—or planned-over cooking—makes sense. If you hate throwing out leftovers—and who can afford to do that—these cook once, eat a time or two ideas will give a whole new meaning to that word! Look for Planned Overs tips on some of our recipes for more ideas.

Time-Savers

Trim prep time using these quick tips:

  • Boil water with the lid on the pot.  Be sure the water is unsalted; it will boil faster.

  • Chop extra onions, celery and bell pepper, and refrigerate or freeze for ready-to-use veggies. Do the same when cooking pasta and rice.

  • Use convenience items such as sliced, shredded and cubed cheeses, pre-cooked bacon and meat; and packaged salads and vegetable mixtures.
