Ahem, let me set the scene for you: You’re standing at the fridge, zoning in on the half loaf of bread left in there and that random container of grated parm and pecorino mix for a hot sec, and then you close the fridge. You tap your heels together three times and open up the fridge again. Woof, there’s no food to eat. Close it again. Lather, rinse, repeat. Sound familiar? Well, I’m here to help you from screaming, “BUT I HAVE NOTHING TO EAT AT HOME!” into the abyss.

Yeah, sure, melted parm and pecorino on toast is a pretty dope makeshift grilled cheese idea when you *truly* only have that in your fridge (bookmarking that, BRB), but let’s get real. We both know that the food in your kitchen right now has so much more potential. 


Without further ado, here are 15 actually bomb meals you can throw together with a handful of pantry staples. Pro tip: These all are paired best with being curled up on the couch under a blanket and Bravo on in the background. Bon appétit, ma chérie!!

1. Buttery, gooey grilled cheese

As mentioned before, this is always a tasty option when there’s nothing else to make, especially since it’s a good canvas for other random ingredients you may have in the fridge. These Salsa Cheddar Grilled Cheese sandwiches from Spabettie are perfect for a super-lazy night. Bonus points if it’s below freezing outside because this sh*t will warm you right up.

2. PB&J because duh

It is easy and filling and actually tastes like second grade and your Powerpuff Girls lunchbox. Plus, you can add stuff like bananas and waffles if you want to zhuzh it up a bit. Make PB&J Banana Waffle Sandwiches from Liv Life and go watch That’s So Raven on Disney+ for a good-ass time.

3. Tuna melt tostadas

It’s a truth most universally acknowledged that the tuna melt is the world’s most perfect sandwich. Still not convinced? Okay, three words: tuna melt tostadas. Make Tuna Melt Tostadas yourself from The Weary Chef. I promise, they’ll change your life and make that canned tuna sitting in your pantry look sooo much less boring.

4. Pancakes! Pancakes!

Hi, while you may be craving your beloved hometown diner’s stacks of luscious pancakes right now, I have a money-saving alternative that requires all but three ingredients!! This recipe from Food Network requires only (1) a banana, (2) two eggs, and (3) some butter or oil for greasing up that pan. Feel free to throw in some chocolate chips, blueberries, or, dare I say, ~rAiNbOw SpRiNkLeS~ for a fun time.
