Easy Meals For Bachelors To Cook

Updated on January 24, 2013

Are you a single guy living on hotdogs? I was once in your spot. Over my years, I have learned how to cook a few easy meals that even the worst cooks can make.

Homemade Mac and Cheese

You'll love this!

At the grocery store buy a bag of shell macaroni. I like the shells because they hold the cheese.You can use elbow macaroni if you want. Also buy a block of Velveeta cheese. I only use Velveeta, the lesser priced cheeses just don't taste as good. You will also need milk. 

Boil macaroni per instructions on package. Cube two cups of the cheese. Put cheese in saucepan and add 1/8-1/4 cup milk. Stir constantly over low heat until all is melted.

You must stir constantly so that milk and cheese won't burn.

When shells are done, drain them and add to cheesesauce. Stir together. and chow down!

Real geniuses add add a pound of browned ground beef. Make sure and brown it first in a frypan, unless you like raw hamburger.

This is a great meal and can go a long way. 


Buy a 16 ounce bag of elbow macaroni and cook per instructions.

Buy 16 and a 8 ounce cans of tomato sauce and some chili powder and 1 pound hamburger. Buy some cheese slices. 

Brown the hamburger.

You need a 11 inch by 9 inch casserole dish.

Pour sauce in a mixing bowl and add 1 1/2 teaspoons of chili powder and mix. Drain noodles and add to sauce mixture and mix evenly. Add browned and grease drained hamburger to mixture and mix evenly.

Pour entire contents in casserole dish and top with cheese slices.

Bake for 15-20 minutes on 350 degrees.

Eat up!! Good stuff! 


I have lived on this cheap meal since the dawn of time.

Go buy a pound of ground beef, 2 cans of mushroom soup, some milk and a loaf of bread.

Brown your hamburger.Now a lot of people use dried beef-you can use that too! 

In a saucepan heat the two cans of soup and add a cup of milk.

Add the soup mixture to your hamburger after you drained grease off the hamburger. Mix it all together and keep it on warm on the stove.

Toast some of the bread and pour a generous amount of the mixture on the slices of toast on a plate and chow down.

You'll love it so much, you'll probably need another loaf of bread. 

I hope this hub will help you out some. Hotdog's get old after a bit. I found experimenting to be fun too.

Any question's just message me and maybe I can help!

      I'm not a bachelor either, but I must say you captured some of my favorite recipes. Everything goes better with pasta, cheese and hamburger.

      P.S. I just love your avatar. Reminds me of my fave photo of my little brother in his crib wearing his bunny suit (that's what we called them growing up). Nostalgia is wonderful.
