Dorm Recipes

The average college student, does not cook on a regular basis. We do not cook mainly due to time and secondly due to budget. Many students simply cannot afford to cook every evening. When you do choose to cook in your dorms or apartments, I hope you will consider some of these recipes below. Each recipe is written as cost efficiently as possible.

This hearty meal is sure to remind you of home!

Chicken Noodle Soup

What you will need:

One pack of chicken breasts or tenderloins

One pack of egg drop noodles

One large carrot or a small group of mini carrots

Two stalks of celery

One container of chicken broth

Oil

Salt

Pepper

Any additional seasoning that you would like to add. I typically add Parsley Flakes and a small amount of a pepper to help the flavor.

Directions:

Pour all of the chicken broth into the pot. Place the egg drop noodles into the pot. Add about two cups of water into the pot or put just enough water to cover the pasta. Then, add oil to a large skillet. Sautee the carrots and celery. Then, take the chicken and cut it into cubes before cooking it. It is totally fine if the pieces are not even cubes. Next, grab another large pot and fill it about three fourths of the way up. Boil the chicken until it is almost done. Be careful not to cook it all the way because it will need to be cooked in the pot with the noodles. Once the chicken is cooked, add the chicken, carrots, and celery to the pot with the egg drop noodles. Then, add salt, pepper, parsley, and any other seasoning you prefer. Put a lid on the pot once the soup is boiling. Cut it down on low and allow it to simmer for about twenty five minutes. Make sure you are still stirring the contents of the pot so that the noodles do not stick to the bottom. Once the soup is done, grab a bowl, and enjoy.

This delicious classic is sure to fill your stomachs in preparation for a new day!

In a large bowl, mix two eggs, a cup and quarter-cup of milk, two dashes of cinnamon, one cup of sugar, and a dash of vanilla(if you’d like). Mix all of these together until you have an even liquid consistency. Use a large skillet, spray Pam or something similar and coat the skillet with it. Take a piece of bread and batter it in the liquid mix. Make sure to coat the bread thoroughly on both sides. Place the battered bread into the skillet and cook until texture of desire is achieved.
