Quick Dinner Recipes from the Broiler

quick dinner recipes from the broiler

If you’ve got an oven, you’ve got a broiler―but chances are you’re not using it to its full potential. Broiling quick-cooking cuts of beef, chicken and fish make for easy weeknight mains (add veggies for an easy all-in-one meal), and a trusty two-piece foil-lined metal pan makes cleanup a breeze.

Niçoise Tuna Melts

The broiler makes a quick sandwich-for-dinner feel substantial and satisfying. This open-face sandwich is a cross between a tuna melt (hold the American; we’re talking Comté, Emmentaler, or Gruyère, here) and Niçoise salad.
