    Default Good Microwave Food?

    Can somebody recommend some good microwaveable food?? I live alone and don't have time to cook so I usually just buy pre-cooked food. Lately I'm getting a little tired of Swanson Frozen Dinners. Anything else good out there??

    Has anyone tried those Bagel Bites? Are they good?

    Thanks

    Bagel bites are good once and a while, but not all the time. Buy chicken fingers, 15 min in the oven and you're set.

    You can even do Chicken fingers in a pan, and fries, how about wings??

    Microwaving all your food is so bad for you.

    Hit up Costco and go nuts there. They got so much good stuff there that you can't get everything at once. I can't even begin to start listing what's good there.

    M&M has some good stuff too.

    I try not to microwave very much stuff if possible. Just pop it into the toaster oven and let it sit while I go do some homework or something. Comes out a lot less soggy than when in the microwave...

    I think you lose a lot of the nutrition when you nuke shit as well, not to mention most microwaveables don't have too much nutrition to begin with... to my knowledge.

    Are bagel bites crunchy and hard like real bagels? or are they soggy?

    In the past I've tried those Michelina Rice Bowls and those were so soggy and covered in sauce. Ryan loves Pizza Pops but they taste like paper to me.

    Anyone know anything specifically that is good? Everytime I go to the supermarket I have a hard time deciding which to get since there are a million choices

    bagel bites ARE crunchy....that's the good thing about them, I expected them to be soggy sicne they were microwaved but they come out really nice and crunchy almost as if they were made in the toaster

    This thread is sweet!
    Microwaves aren't unhealthy.... they're a vital survival tool!

    Try these sandwiches, they have lots of different kinds.

    These are easy too, and lots of different kinds.


    If you want to do chicken nuggets, bagel bites, or mini pizzas, they will taste like crap out of the microwave. It cooks them unevenly. I do all of my "oven foods" in this little baby right here.

    Those sandwiches aren't frozen are they? The chicken pot pies look yummy. Where do you buy the foods?

    The sandwiches are fridge stored, very fast and easy. The pot pies are good because the veggies aren't gross, and the crust is not bad.
    These are from Costco.

    I have more to add to this thread tomorrow. Other people better start contributing by then!

    Here is my "secret" chicken finger dip. This will beat hands down all plum sauces, honey mustards, chipotle, ranch, sauces EVER!

    Sputnik's Ultra Type-R Honey Dill Supremo Chicken Finger Dip SS GT R32!

    Its simple... here are the ingredients.

    - Honey
    - Hellmanns REAL Mayo
    - Dried Dill

    I really have no idea exactly what proportions to use, but start with about 1/2 cup mayo to 1/4 cup honey and a quite a bit of dill. Then mix it together. You should have a creamyish consistancy that is approaching being translucent.

    Taste it. You should be able to taste the dill and you shouldnt have a strong honey taste but it should still be a bit sweet. If its too sweet add mayo if it still looks too much like mayo add honey. The dill should be visible throughout at all times.

    Then refridgerate for about an hour or so to let the flavours blend.

    Enjoy!

    M&M is your friend

    Their food is pretty good, I'd say for frozen food it's a lot better than the commercial stuff they sell at superstore or costco.
