Whether it's just for you, your whole family, or a party, "make your own" meals are always fun. These are meals where each individual gets to decide what they put in their meal. Everyone gets what they want, and they have fun building their meals in the process. Here are my top 5 make your own meal ideas.
This is a favorite but may take a little extra time since you have to cook it in the oven, or on the grill if you know how! You can prepare crusts for each individual and even give them the choice of wheat or white. Then it's just a matter of them choosing from a line of toppings. Sauce, cheese, veggies, meat, whatever they want and as much as they want!
Quesadillas only take a few minutes to cook which makes them a little bit easier than pizza. If you prepare various veggies and meats and cut into bite size pieces, your guests just have to pick their fillings and give you the folded quesadilla. You can use the stove or use a griddle if you have many to make at once. Serve with sour cream, pico de gallo, and salsa.
For a party this would be a very easy idea. Cook up different kinds of noodles, stuffed or un-stuffed, and cook up a few different sauces. Your guests can go down the line picking their pasta, their sauce, and adding veggies and meat and whatever else you've offered up.
This is perhaps the easiest make-it-yourself meal. You can buy lunchmeat and cheeses individually, or buy a tray that already has it all set up for you! Throw in a variety of breads and spreads and your guests will be eating in no time.
Well I have to throw at least one dessert on the list! Brownie Sundaes are so good. All you have to do is make brownies, maybe make 2 kinds if you are in the mood. Throw out some different flavors of ice cream and all the toppings. Everyone can make exactly what they want, and as much whipped cream as they want too :)
Make it yourself meals can make it easier on the host while providing some fun for the guests or your family. Even if it's just your immediate family, it makes for a fun evening. Kids and adults alike will enjoy making their own meals.
