7 Dinner Recipes For One That'll Make You Wish You Had Leftovers

Crispy Air Fryer Pork Chops

We don't usually get particularly enthused about pork chops. They come out tasteless, depressing, and often overdone. All of that changes when you cook them in an air fryer!

Baked Feta Pasta

It goes without saying that cooking a block of feta with bursting tomatoes would taste amazing. Does it, however, measure up to the level of this one's torn TikTok? With reluctance, we say yes. It's brilliant—incredibly simple, yet sophisticated enough for a date night with a plus one. 

Turkey Taco Lettuce Wraps

This is one of our favorite ground turkey recipes, and we're always looking for more. These lettuce wraps are incredibly tasty, quick to prepare (20 minutes!), and customizable to your preferences. Add your preferred taco toppings on top of them—anything goes!

Cast-Iron Skillet Steak

Feel that in order to enjoy a delicious steak, you must dine at a nice restaurant? Nope. A restaurant-quality steak may be prepared at home in 15 minutes, sometimes even less. The secret is to start the searing process with a perfectly seasoned and dry steak in a very hot skillet.

Pasta Alla Gricia

Enjoying this is as simple to prepare as it is to make. The authentic Italian method employs guancial, or cured pork jowl, which has a delicate, somewhat sweet flavor. If unavailable, substitute pancetta or thick-sliced bacon!

Dragon Roll

The dragon roll, with its exquisite "scales" of finely sliced avocado and mango and a sriracha mayo drizzle, may be Uramaki's pinnacle of decadence. The roll is loaded with crunchy cucumber, a mixture of buttery avocado, and crispy shrimp.

Chicken Caesar Salad

Salads don't normally conjure images of being “decadent,” but this one does. This Caesar salad is more decadent than healthy, with crunchy croutons, soft, roasted chicken thighs, and a generous amount of freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
