Cook Like a Pro with These 5 Easy and Affordable Dorm Room Recipe

Living entirely on protein bars and trail mix is possible, but gets boring after a while. There’s just something about a hot meal cooked at home, even if home is a dorm room, that can bring you comfort. 

Thankfully, it’s possible to make delicious meals even if you don’t have access to full-sized appliances.

Access to a toaster oven, microwave, Instant Pot, or hot plate opens you up to a wide variety of cheap and easy meals. 

According to one Redditor, slices of garlic bread (or bagels) make for a great toaster oven pizza base. From there, add sauce, cheese, and whatever other toppings you’d like.

Toaster Oven Pizza

You can cook your pizza at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for about 8 minutes, or until your cheese has melted and the bread has toasted. 

To make Instant Pot egg bites, the first thing you’re going to need is a silicone baby food tray or individual silicone cups. Other than eggs and milk, the other ingredients you put in your egg bites are up to you.

Instant Pot Egg Bites

Fill your tray or cup halfway with your egg mixture and add cheese or other ingredients on top. Pressure Cooking Today recommends cooking your egg bites on High Pressure for 11 minutes. 

Let your eggs sit for five minutes before switching your Instant Pot to Venting to quickly release the residual pressure. Just be careful; steam will come out of the pressure release valve.  Finally, let your eggs cool on a wire rack or something similar for about five minutes.
