Quick and Easy Nacho Cheese Casserole {Meatless}

So Lent starts in two days! That means meatless Fridays (and Ash Wednesday) starts this week.

I used to panic about trying to come up with meatless dinners for Lenten Fridays.  I was trying to make meatless dinners that were also fancy.  Which is kinda besides the point of fasting and abstinence. Duh.   Once I figured out I didn’t need to make anything super fancy and meatless, it wasn’t so hard. Actually, Lenten Fridays have become my favorite dinner days because it’s a great “excuse” to keep things super-duper simple.

Who says you can’t serve your family cereal or eggs and toast for dinner?

If, however, you’d like something a tad more exciting than breakfast for dinner, here’s a meatless recipe I shared last month at that’s super easy but looks a little fancy too. They’ll never know how hard you didn’t try.

You only need Five Ingredients, an Oven, and about half-an-hour to put this together and on the table. Go here for the full recipe and, while you’re there, I suggest you check out all the delicious’s Meatless Friday Dishes.  

What are your favorite go-to meals for Lenten Fridays?


3 Ingredient Salmon Salad {Lettuce Wraps} 2

Well now that there are only 2 weeks left of Lent, I’m finally going to contribute my own “Meatless Meals for Lent” idea.

It’s fairly simple – only 3 main ingredients – and nothing really that spectacular but I liked it and you might too.

Salmon Salad {Lettuce Wraps}

 All you need is:

One can of salmon (I used Alaskan pink salmon)

Half a cup of mayonnaise

1 teaspoon of salt 



Dump all of salmon into a big bowl. Add the mayo & salt. Mix well until all incorporated to your liking. Scoop onto some lettuce leaves. Wrap, bite, crunch, enjoy!

You could also use this as a dip with crackers or on pita bread or in a croissant with other accessories such as cut up grapes, raisins, cranberries, celery, carrots, and more!

How would you make yours?
