I have been asked to provide some easy to prepare & digest meal ideas for quick pre & post game suppers. Whether it’s soccer, baseball, football or both, everyone seems to be on the run to some activity or another and supper is something to get out of the way, although it needs to make sense with work, school and camp schedules as well as with bedtime. Some of the following ideas are meat-based while others are not. If you are feeding your gang post game, you may consider a lighter option as it will likely digest easier before bedtime.
Before making my meal suggestions, I will highly recommend the purchase of a panini maker, George Foreman grill or some form thereof. these machines are not just for panini but you can grill boneless chicken breast in about 6 minutes and burgers in about 8. Grilled veggies are a zip and can be used in pasta, salad or an egg-based frittata. This machine is a mom’s best friend and a Mommy-Must-Have in my books.
Here are some ideas for you:
Meat & Poultry:
Shish Taouk Chicken with side salad
Teriyaki Chicken Stir Fry ( buy chicken already cut in strips)
Hamburgers with oven fries & salad
Turkey Sandwiches & Salad
Meatball Subs (your favourite meatballs in a hollowed-out whole wheat baguette topped with shredded lettuce & veggies…mmmm)
Lemon-Dill Tuna Salad Sandwich
Egg Salad Sandwich
Cheese Blintzes or Cheese Bagels
Panini & Salad
Pasta & Sauce
Steak-Spice Salmon with Quinoa & edamame
Breakfast for dinner:
Eggs- any style with toast & fruit or veggies
