3 ingredient recipes

Make any of these easy, flavorful dishes with only three ingredients! These recipes will reduce your grocery budget without sacrificing flavor. There are hundreds of breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert recipe ideas. Also, most of these recipes take less than 20 minutes of prep time so dinner will be on the table in no time!

I don’t count staples (basic seasonings, spices, oil, flour, etc) as ingredients because you most likely have these items in your pantry and the cost is nominal in small amounts.
