We’re college students. It’s in our nature to always be rushing. When it comes to life on the run, we need quick and easy meals to chow down and head to class. Here’s a list of my favorite three ingredient meals that’ll never bore your taste buds.

  1. pigs in a blanketHot dog, cheddar cheese, puff pastry– Lay out your puff pastry (crescent roll dough), put a slice of cheese on it, followed by a hot dog. Roll the combo up, slice the hot dog into three pieces. Place the pieces on a tray and bake for 15 minutes at 425 degrees and you’ve got yourself some piggies in a blanket.
  2. Jalapenos, bacon, creme cheese– Slice the jalapeno popper and scrap out the seeds. Spread creme cheese on the popper and wrap it entirely with one piece of bacon. Bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees and bam, jalapeno poppers.
  3. Chicken breast, barbecue sauce, breadcrumbs– Dip the chicken in the bbq sauce followed by the bread crumbs. Bake for 15 minutes at 400 degrees, take it out, add more bbq sauce and bake for 10 more minutes. BBQ chicken tenders!
