    For EveryDayAmnesiac...

    -Toast English muffins
    -Melt cheese on one side
    -Apply layer of canned three bean salad (well drained)
    -Top with sliced ham (nuked in the mikey)
    -Form into sandwich and eat

    Fulfills all the basic food groups, takes less than five minutes and most importantly, cheap.

    Hmmmm.... I thought they had an all in one mix that specifically addresses this need... Ah yes, here it is...
    [​IMG]

    Seriously though, when I was a bachelor, didn't always eat so well.... in fact I kind of went by the rule below....

    [​IMG]

    And paid for it! Big Time!

    Switching to eating healthy really has made quite a difference!!!!

    Lol come on guys, this isn't even food..
    Salmon
    Fennel
    Spinach with balsamic

    And
    Chicken (marinated in equal parts honey, balsamic vinegar, hot sauce)
    Baked Cauliflower
    Roulette with balsamic

    I have a lot of recipes that require very easy preparation and are healthy, but these are my favorite. When I want to go cheap, ya its not easy to eat something healthy, but I try not to eat from restaurants, so no money wasted there.


    Edit: now I'm craving a hot dog badly. Haven't eaten one in years after hearing a million people tell me "do you know what's in a hotdog?".

    It's no "Bachelor's Delight," I tell you what!

    But... it does feature all sorts of unnecessary Bachelor protein, so... I'm going to give it my "Seal of Approval."




    All of that looks and sounds disgusting. I love it!

    You're drifting dangerously close to my "Cheap High-Qualitly Supermarket Frozen Pizza" thread, @CarolKing! :lol:

    And in true bachelor fashion, I've already passed out, woken back up, and am starting all over again. :tup:

    I like the blue and white label CHEDDAR & BACON POTATO SKINS - POTATO SKINS STUFFED WITH CHEDDAR CHEESE AND BACON.

    "As an adjunct to hamburgers, chicken fingers, pizza, or most other meals the TGI Friday's Cheddar and Bacon Potato Skins are an exceptionally tasty and easy to make side dish or appetizer. Right out of the toaster oven these potato skins taste exactly as if they were served fresh from a TGI Friday's Restaurant."

    Any self-loathing bachelor should have some outrageously expired Chinese food in his fridge...



    Wow. I'm REALLY entertaining myself tonight...

    You're probably right. That is an unnecessarily complex recipe. Especially when it consumes valuable time better spent on the PlayStation.

    For the single guy on the go I was thinking waterdogs, but then there's the hassle of rinsing out the pot afterwards and disposing of the paper plate. So eat them right out of the wrapper. It does say "fully cooked" on the label.

    Yes, the other thread should be merged into this one.

    If not, I'm going to start a "Best Frozen Tater Tots For Bachelors" thread. :lol:

    I think one of the greatest disappointments was discovering the vast conspiracy that puts hot dogs in packs of ten, and hot dog buns in packs of eight.

    I do have a question for this thread. Inside a can of pork and beans, what is that stuff that looks like yellow cubes? Is that supposed to be the pork? Flavoring? What is that thing?

    Cooking is pretty much my favorite hobby and has been for a long time. I always tell my bachelor friends to learn (at least) one dish REALLY well. It doesn't have to be fancy or have a lot of ingredients. When you finally do meet miss right, or even miss right now, you can impress her with your serious cooking talent. Even if you don't have anyone to impress at least you have a tasty dinner that you can make.

    Does hamburger helper count?

    Until you cook for her a second time, and she learns you only know one dish. Awkward. It's like wearing the same clothes to two consecutive dates.

    And the tears of loneliness will drip on the mountain of dishes left afterwards.

    Just kidding around, that's good advice about learning one dish well.

    Yeah, I think that you're correct. That's the token pork portion to make it pork and beans...technically. I've noticed that there's usually only one cube too.

    BTW, you can turn that ramen into gourmet fare by adding P&B's. Don't knock it until you've tried it.

    Multiply the extra $ spent on that second pack of buns...one of the biggest food conspiracies evah

    May as well just slurp it straight out of the can... while sitting on the can! :ko:


    And why not something to help wash it down?

    Well, I had quite a few leftovers to use up, so...

    I ended up mixing chili beans, saute'd cabbage & kale and spaghetti sauce and mixed it up with four eggs and extra oregano and LOTS of black / red pepper. Added some sliced tomato and mozzarella on top.

    Started like this:

    Ended like this:

    Now, if that's not bachelor chow, I don't know what is...

    Tasted quite similar to lasagna, actually. :lol:

    Bachelor's Breakfast of Champion

    5 eggs cooked in bacon stock from last nights dinner w/ aprox 2 grams ABV. Pepper, garlic salt, and some Swiss cheese.

    2 large pieces of toast slathered in butter
    1 with jam too (blackberry)

    And some Bacon cheese mashed potatoes. Cause bacon and potatoes make everything better (Some of last nights left overs cooked by my lovely wife. )

    Eggs were really good even with a relatively large amount of ABV. The nuttiness of the herb mixed in really well. Although my wife comes in right after I finish my bachelor breakfast and asks "why does the whole house reek like weed?" :shrug: :lol:

    I thought to qualify as bachelor chow, you could only use 3 or 4 ingredients. The last couple posts looks like GOURMET bachelor chow.

    Hahaha I don't think any of my food has been referred to as gourmet before even in the context of bachelor food :D so thank you @syrupy :tup:

    For full disclosure my bacon stock.... Was the grease left over on the pan from the night before. Don't tell my wife she would give me a jimmy Fallon
    [​IMG]

    With reheated left overs in a microwave, toast, and a slice of deli cheese in the eggs..... I mean it's definitely a step up from ramen with an egg tossed in it, but not that far off :lol:

    Btw: still got a nice little buzz goin for an ABV edible made a nice baseline.

    To me, bachelor chow is adding kechup to mac'n'cheese. Or rice-a-roni-- three ingredients: water, rice, butter. Hungry Man Salisbury Steak mystery meal. Putting seasoned salt on ramen noodles. Doritos and a beverage. Popcorn and water. You guys are getting into iron chef territory by comparison.

    Hmm. To me, bachelor chow is just mixing a bunch of guy food together into a sloppy mess that looks like it belongs in a trough or a dog food can and then being drunk / stoned enough to convince yourself that it's actually a pretty good recipe... :brow:

    Although @Puffers breakfast wouldn't take much convincing... :)
