Here are over 25 Pantry Recipes that will help you use up those pantry staples. Shelf stable foods can last a while, and having easy recipes to utilize them can be daunting, but not anymore!
With COVID19 going on at the moment, everyone is looking for easy shelf-stable recipes to make at home. Ingredients that you can stock the pantry with are essential during a crisis. Head to stores like Costco or Aldi to get the best deals on canned foods.
What are Pantry Recipes?
I also consider pantry recipes to include foods that will stay fresh in the fridge or on the counter for a long time. This can include vegetables such as potatoes, onions, sweet potatoes, and carrots, and also things like eggs, cheese, milk, a some other dairy products. Also, freezer items including frozen vegetables and fruit, meats, and breads. Use your best judgement and with a lot of recipes, they can be switched to include items you do have that are similar. Feel free to email me or send me a message on Facebook or Instagram with any questions.
