What To Cook This Weekend

The 4th of July is over and Summer has officially kicked in. Here are some cool recipes to cook this weekend or during the week for easy dinners or breakfasts.

Bacon, Egg, and Tomato Toast

Fry up bacon, tomatoes, and eggs all in the same skillet for this seasonal upgrade on the classic breakfast sandwich.

Brown Butter Steel-Cut Oatmeal

If you indulged a little more than you wanted over the 4th, a bowl of oats will be healthy and satisfying—and they can be made right in the Instant Pot. Steel-cut oats have a chewy, hearty texture. Taking the extra step of browning them in butter gives the oatmeal a toasty, rich flavor.

Banana-Stuffed French Toast

Still have guests in town for the holiday? Hanging out at a beach house? Nothing pleases a crowd like banana French toast.

Chicken Salad with Apricots, Celery, and Blue Cheese

This summery chicken salad offers a mix of sweet, creamy, and acidic flavors, and tender, crunchy, and juicy textures. In other words, it’s got everything.

Grilled Bistecca with Herby Fish Sauce

Why baste your steak with fish sauce? It’s called umami. Get into it.

Cabbage Wedges with Warm Pancetta Vinaigrette

Every grilled steak dinner deserves a classic wedge. This one gets extra flavor points from its charred, smoky leaves.

Roasted Niçoise Salad with Halibut

Marinated artichoke hearts get super-crispy and addictively delicious when roasted, making them the secret star of this simple sheet-pan dinner.

Southern One-Cup Peach Cobbler

In this summery cobbler recipe, the batter puffs up around the fruit, creating a cakey top and a gooey base.
