10 Best Customizable Recipe Ideas | Recipes, dinners and easy meal ideas

We’ve all been there; you bookmark a recipe that looks great, but when you get home and take a look in your pantry you realize you’re missing a few ingredients. Unfortunately. And while that might be a deal breaker for some recipes, you’ll find that there are plenty of others where it’s totally OK to take creative control and use what you have on hand. These recipes represent the latter; they are really adaptable and practically made to handle all the substitutions you throw at them. If you stick to swaps that are similar in texture and moisture content (e.g. mixing different nuts and seeds or replacing one green leafy vegetable with another), we’re confident you’ll get great results every time. One of our all-time favorite recipes to play with? Fried eggs. This satisfying layer makes a hearty meal of leftover bits of bread and cheese (although you could just as easily apply the same go-anywhere mentality to a quiche or frittata). Grandma gave us the go-ahead to use this recipe – so feel free to use any type of cheese, leafy greens, meat, or bread you happen to have on hand.
