Ten Dinners
Prepping 101 Series: Food storage dinners

Get started prepping by assembling ten shelf-stable dinners for your family. While
you can enhance the meal with fresh foods or l
ong lasting foods from your
refrigerator, all the dinners listed below can sit in your prepper's pantry
unrefrigerated. These are hearty and nutritious meals.

Ten Shelf stable Dinners for Preppers
Here are some ideas for ten shelf-stable dinners for preppers to get you started:

  • Shelf Stable Dinner #1: Taco Dinner: Gather shelf-stable corn tortillas,
    canned hamburger, salsa and seasoning and you have the makings of a
    delicious shelf-stable meal. The Garden of Eatin' Yellow Corn dinner kit
    includes 12 taco shells, sauce and seasoning. To enhance the dinner, you can
    stock: canned olives, a box of Mexican or Spanish rice, and whatever fresh
    foods you may have in the fridge or garden. Be sure to stock cheese and
    onions in your fridge.  Onions are best stored in a root cellar, but they do
    well in the fridge. You can wax your own cheddar cheese and it will keep
    aging to perfection! Don't like crunchy tacos? Soft corn tortillas last for a long
    time in the fridge!

  • Shelf Stable Dinner #2: Chicken Alfredo. All you need is some pasta sauce
    in a jar, pasta and chicken chunks in a can to make a tasty shelf-stable
    chicken Alfredo meal. Be sure to have freeze dried parsley on hand.

    marinara or spaghetti sauce in your cupboards, add some canned hamburger
    meat, Kraft Parmesan cheese, freeze dried parsley, and you're ready with a

    with Hormel shelf-staple bacon, pictured at the bottom of the page, or

  • Shelf Stable Dinner #5: chicken and sausage gumbo.

  • Shelf Stable Dinner #6: chili beef and bean roadhouse.

  • Shelf Stable Dinner #7: Italian Ravioli! Chef Boyardee provides a hearty
    meal in  a can with overstuffed Italian Sausage Ravioli.

    cook? Shelf stable chicken dinner or beef stuffed cabbage in a box, pictured
