There’s nothing we like more than doubling a recipe, making it once, and serving it twice. Whether it’s for lunch the next day or to free up some of your precious time the next evening. Take the pressure off and enjoy healthy meals with less work with some make-ahead meal options.

Little potatoes make the whole business simpler because they don’t need washing or peeling. Our microwave-ready Creamers keep things quick and no-fuss: ready in about five minutes, and the herb seasoning pack is included.

These tried-and-true dishes get a 10 out of 10 on the easy scale, plus they’re healthy and delicious. Some taste even better the second time around because the ingredients have time to mingle and gel a bit, combining flavors for a more robust final result. Give these recipes a try this week—mix up the proteins, take them for lunches, and enjoy all the extra time you’ve just earned for yourself. You deserve it!

Green Bean and Potato Salad


This dish is summery, and savory and looks gorgeous, don’t you think? Pick up some fresh green beans (or yellow, which are sweeter and more tender), snip off the ends, and simmer. Gently boil (or microwave) our Little Yellows potatoes. Toss in a dressing of olive oil, lemon juice, and Dijon mustard, plus freshly chopped basil and chives. The crunchy beans pair nicely with our silky, mild Baby Boomer. Chives add just the right amount of zing. Serve with grilled meat or tofu and for the next meal, take it for lunch!

Easy Mexican Flavored Tin Foil Dinner 


Anything prepared in foil on the BBQ is a winner, as far as we’re concerned because that means no pots and pans to wash. This recipe is not only super straightforward, but it’s also a dinner-in-one. Just prep the ingredients, wrap them in aluminum foil, and grill. That’s it. Bell peppers add sweetness to taco-seasoned chicken breasts and tender Little Trios. Smothered in salsa, onion, and cheese this dish is bound to be a hit at your next BBQ. Top with green onions, sour cream, and avocado, for delicious extras. The next time you eat it, the seasoning will have had time to marry for a deeper flavor.

Creamy Italian Potato Salad


Salads are for summer and this one hits all the right notes. Bring a bowl to the company picnic or family potluck. With sun-ripe grape tomatoes, basil, roasted peppers, and cheese, this dish looks bright, fresh, and enticing. Juicy tomatoes are a perfect complement to smooth Little Reds. Spinach, garlic, apple cider vinegar, and Parmesan add just the right amount of bite and tang. Prepare the ingredients, boil the Little Potatoes, drain, and cool. Whisk the dressing and toss it all together. Presto!

Quick BBQ Potato Skillet

One pot is all you need to make this colorful dish—a hearty breakfast or dinner. Italian sausages and your choice of barbecue sauce infuse a pleasant smokiness into the mix of onions, peppers, chicken, and our A Little Savory Herb. Serve with a simple side salad. Enjoy!
