MINI-HAMBURGER BENTO

Japanese-style hamburgers are like round miniature meatloaves in flavor and texture, rather than all-beef American-style burgers, which can get tough when cold. These stay moist and flavorful, just like day-after meatloaf. Get the recipe: Mini-Hamburger Bento

HAWAIIAN PIZZA MUFFINS

For a good time, call upon these savoury little muffin friends. They’ve got the goodness of pizza (ham and pineapple, what’s up?) in a perfect handheld vessel. Get the recipe: Hawaiian Pizza Muffins

QUESADILLAS

Cheese is the friendliest ingredient, says us. It's there to comfort you and make whatever you have laying around taste better. Case in point, quesadillas. Throw in whatever wilting vegetables or leftover meat you've got and watch them be transformed by the gooey goodness that is cheese. Get the recipe: Quesadillas

PULLED BEEF, PORK OR CHICKEN TACOS

BUTTER CHICKEN SANDWICHES

You may be more familiar with butter chicken in a bowl with soft naan bread to sop it up, but the same rich dish can be piled on a crusty baguette. For a good time, look this one up. Get the recipe: Butter Chicken Sandwiches
