My Favorite Four Ingredient Recipes

When I wrangled all of my Dollar Tree craft ideas into one handy post, it was a colossal hit with my readers.
Who knew that it took so little on my part to make you so giddy? Need to remember that. Just kidding. I will always work hard on each post.
Unless I don’t.

So I came up with this four-ingredient thing in bed one morning, early in my blogging “career”. Back then, I would spend every waking hour thinking of cool new things that would bring my readers back again and again. When you are a newbie blogger, you do this. Those who are newbie bloggers now are nodding their heads now.
So I thought….hmm, I know we all like to be cheap save money. And I also know we all like to stuff our faces full of food eat. And I also know that we all are really impatient in the kitchen want to spend more time with our families.
Then I counted on my fingers how many ingredients I use in most of my recipes.

Four. Huh. I never really noticed the pattern. Most of my beloved recipes had just four ingredients. So there and then my Four Ingredient Recipes was born. So here are my top eight favorite Four Ingredient Recipes, because Top 10 would be way too easy and predictable.


1- Low Fat Pizza

This went a little wild and crazy viral on Pinterest last year. I think in one day this post alone got like 2000 hits?
I might have exaggerated a little. Maybe like 200 hits? That’s a lot for this one-horse town blog. So either many people love themselves a good pizza recipe or they just liked the picture of the pizza on Pinterest. I have to admit it was one of my better pictures as far as pictures of pizza run.

This blog post was before I started taking pictures of my food. I used to think it was really weird to do that before I got into all these recipes. But now, my camera sits next to me when I am whipping up a four-ingredient concoction. And yes, it’s better than Panera.

 I won’t go into details about this as you can read it on the link but can I just say this is amazing and so easy to make.

4- Filipino Egg Rolls

Oh my heavens, if I could eat just these morning, noon and night? I would. I would, I would, I would. They are so absolutely, wonderfully happy and tasty. They will make your mouth smile. And your hips lumpy. But it is worth every lump.


5- White Castle Cheeseburgers

 I can guarantee these are healthier than the fast-food version. I can also guarantee that most likely every food source known to man is healthier than White Castle.
