Sometimes the best way to enjoy food is to mix it all together. From ice cream to salads to smoothies, everything tastes better blended. Today’s dining hall recipes follow this same concept. Mix it up and enjoy!
Mixed-up OatmealOatmeal is a morning staple, regardless of the dining hall. This delicious and nutritious breakfast dish can be made so much more enjoyable if you take advantage of your surroundings. Fill a bowl with oatmeal, but leave about an inch of room from the top.Go to the waffle station and add a ladleful of maple syrup.Add a layer of raisins from the fruit and salad bar.Make your way to the spice rack and add two or three shakes of cinnamon to the top of your oatmeal.Procure a glass of milk and add about three tablespoons (just a little bit). Mix it all together and enjoy your tasty breakfast!
Mexican Fiesta BowlA strange, yet delightful twist on KFC’s Famous Bowls. The combination of mashed potatoes and seasoned beef gives a Mexican kick to this new take on Shepherd’s Pie. Get a large pasta bowl and add one large scoop of mashed potatoesTake your bowl to the Mexican food line and add one scoop of seasoned beef, a small dollop of sour cream, and a sprinkling of cheese.Add a large spoonful of corn from the steamed vegetables section.Mix the different food together.
Cheesy PotatoesNot the healthiest of snacks, but they’re delicious! Get your cheese fry fix in the dining hall and avoid those late night cravings that send you cross-campus to Reckers.Find the form of fried potatoes that the dining hall is offering (the fried seasoned potato cubes are the best, but any fries work well too).Get one of the small bowls used for Jell-O and pudding and fill it with the Nacho cheese sauce from the Mexican food section. A little sour cream is good too. Dip and enjoy!
