Main Dishes

Discover main dish ideas starring beef, chicken, turkey, pork, ham, lamb, fish, seafood, vegetarian options, and roasts, pastas, and soups. My best entree recipes include restaurant copycats (like Alice Springs Chicken with Mashed Potatoes and Roasted Broccoli), family heirloom recipes, vacation-inspired eats, and so much more.

For brunch, lunch, or dinner, these main dish ideas are designed to be the centerpiece of your plate. Whether you’re feeding one, your family, or the entire block at a potluck, these entree recipes with meat, poultry, fish and seafood, and vegetarian ingredients are the ones that I have on repeat at my own home. In addition to my own cozy Midwestern recipes, I’m mixing in plenty of restaurant copycats (from Surf and Turf to Shrimp Fajitas to Starbucks-style Egg Muffins).
