My favorite is roasted whole chicken. Eat the roast for one meal, then for later in the week you can make soup from the bones and leftover meat, chicken sandwiches, shredded chicken with salsa and cheese is also good. The last chicken I roasted (mind you I'm a family of two) made dinner for one night and then 6 servings of soup for lunches that week.

How many are you cooking for? I find that now that I'm just cooking for myself, most recipes will feed me at least twice. I'm sure you could take most any recipe and double it, also.

My favorite multi-serving dishes are soups and chillis. I don't have a microwave and I like that they're easy to reheat on the stove, and taste even better the longer you let them sit!

any cooked vegetables (including roast potatoes etc - and sausage, ham if you eat meat) - then add it to eggs and make a frittata with a bit of feta cheese. Delicious cold for lunch the next day too.

Pasta dishs are good for this! Basically, make it on Sunday, then make a bake with the leftovers. For example, I make a creamy broccoli and mushroom pasta that is tasty on day one; day 2, it goes into the oven topped with cheese and breadcrumbs and becomes a totally different dish :D

I make stuffed peppers and freeze them. I usually do it when peppers are on sale or if they are in the discounted bin. I make mine vegetarian, but there are a lot of recipes for different types. I steam the pepper halves and then add the filling. Instead of baking, I cool them in the fridge then transfer them to the freezer. Great for lunches or a quick dinner.

I use my crockpot for that. I make stew, chilli, taco soup and have some left over that I freeze for another time. I also save one for Sunday after I get home from work.

i found lots of recipes for roast turkey, then a second yummy meal, then soup or stock. Three meals for the meat of one.

roast pork serves later on for skinny fried rich, omelets, pulled pork for sandwiches. I use pork loin, so it is lean.... and there's usually enough for four or five meals. I freeze some of it so we don't start oinking by the end of the week....

My go to is usually chicken. Today my hubby boiled a package of chicken thighs then took the skin off and took the bone out. I made chicken and dumplings for dinner tonight and then later this week we'll use the leftover chicken to do chicken salad, chicken enchiladas, chicken helper, etc.

I am looking for recipes where I can cook it on Sunday, and then have a second recipe to eat later in the week.
