If he likes and can handle Polish sausage, our favorite is just dumping some Polish sausage (cut up or not) on a pan with cut-up vegetables (carrots, sweet/white potatoes, anything really) plus any combo of fresh herbs/garlic/onion (optional) and little olive oil and salt and pepper. Roast in a hot oven around 375-400 degrees or so until the vegetables are soft. You can serve this with bread or rice or noodles, or just plain. Really good!

Also, what about canned bean dishes - burritos (beans, rice, cheese, salsa, lettuce - vary the ingredients any way you want), black bean soup (puree beans with some broth, onion, garlic, maybe some tomato or tomato paste), huevos rancheros (eggs with black beans), etc.

Another idea is egg dishes and "breakfast for dinner"-type stuff like waffles/pancakes and eggs for dinner.

I dont know if this was posted yet, but an easy way to make chicken parm. is to use frozen chicken patties. cook them first till almost done. top with a spoonful of spagetti sauce, then top with provalone or mozzarella cheese. heat them until cheese melts.( this can all be done in a microwave if he wants) the leftover sauce can be used for a side of spagetti. leftovers can be put into hamburger buns for sandwiches.

Yes, Trader Joe's (hopefully, there's one nearby him) has all kinds of pre-seasoned, pre-cooked meats that all you have to do is heat them.  They also have incredibly easy recipes at their sample counters AND they have the ingredients right there ready to buy if you want to. That would make shopping for recipes -at least that days' particular recipe- brainless (I like that!).  Cheesy

I'm not sure if some one else has suggested this, just because i haven't read threw all 4 pages! but what if you taught him how to make an easy pizza crust. i know freshman year i spent a ton of money on pizza, and later on i learned how to make it my self, and every weekend my friends and i would make pizza. plus with pizza you can use up just about every thing, and the meats that go on pizza are precooked such as pepperoni, and sausage. Also if he gets into i would recommend getting a pizza stone, it makes pizza come out much crisper!

Meat kind of freaks me out too.. well beef does anyway. I grew up on moose and I swear beef wreaks in comparison..  Lips sealed anyway..

Can he handle burger? I know if I throw it in the skillet and turn up the overhead fan I can get through burger ok. Also seasoning helps the smell.

What about fish?

This is something my little nephews like and is fairly quick.
Cook pasta or noodles, While it is cooking mix together vegetables of choice I use defrosted veg  mix with baked beans in tomato sauce and slices of hot dog or ham basically cold meat of choice. When the pasta/noodles are cooked drain and mix with the rest of the things. Place in an oven dish. Pour over some pasta sauce top off with a little cheese if you want then put into the oven to warm through for about 15 -20 mins depending on the oven and how much you have made. Then enjoy.

Hopefully, he will be near a Trader Joe's, as they seem to be popping up everywhere *yaaaaaay!*  . TJ has many pre-cooked meats, ready to heat and eat - including little mini roasts, all of the meats pre-seasoned. Yummy!  They also sell fresh pizza dough by the pound for 99 cents here in Southern California. The prices are pretty good, depending on what you buy, of course.    They also have the frozen meatballs, both meat and a vegetarian one, too.   Sometimes, I don't bother to put anything with them, just fry and eat in a bowl.

re the pizza dough: you don't have to use tomato sauce, pizza sauce or spagette sauce, etc.  I have put fresh asparagus spears and a swissy cheese or parmesan on top and it tastes excellent!  You can put anything on the doughs. Maybe slice those frozen meatballs on top before baking.

Even in regular grocery stores in the meat dept:  prepacked and cut up, meats and vegies together, ready to stir fry!

So far he only knows how to make noodle ramen, pasta with sauce from a jar, microwave mac and cheese and sandwitches.

Noodle ramen is so good. Cheesy

I love Trader Joe's. Great for easy to make lunches.
