last minute meal ideas

This past week’s episode of Cutthroat Kitchen got us thinking about timing. In the most recent episode, called Wing It, competitors were forced to make last-minute updates to a chicken wing plate by using some unconventional ingredients. None of us are strangers to spur-of-the-moment changes in the kitchen, so we’ve rounded up a list of our best last-minute meals. Next time you find out you’re suddenly having guests over for dinner, make sure you’re prepared to wing it and turn a dinner for 4 into a dinner for 10. Check out our suggestions!
