Ranking and Review of 14 Budget Bytes recipes

Some information on me that should inform how you read this post:

My cooking skills fall somewhere between beginner and intermediate. I've made recipes before and the basic eggs and stuff without a recipe and feel confident in my ability to follow a given recipe, but this is the first time I've been cooking

Other than the bad chili they served occasionally for two years in my high school, I never had tex-mex before

I made some substitutions and am judging based on them and will say by each recipe what they were

I am ranking mostly based on taste, not price or health or anything else

And so, the ranking from most favorite to least favorite

I replaced the oyster sauce with half hoisin sauce and half soy sauce. I really don't have much to say about this. It's just really fucking good. The flavors all come together really well and the crushed red pepper adds a nice spice that gives the whole thing the perfect bit of heat. I think the only thing I want to do different next time, other than maybe obtaining oyster sauce, is cracking the spaghetti in half to make it easier to apportion. Picture of how mine came out

I made this with ground beef instead of ground turkey and did not include the scallions/green onions. I don't really know the difference between the taco option and the quesadilla option, I think I did something in between. This is the one I just made so I haven't yet reheated the leftovers and eaten more than one portion. Regardless, who kept quesadillas/soft tacos from me all my life? idk if it's just this one or if they're generally amazing, but holy crap, it's really good, highly recommend it. Might edit in a picture if I can get a clean quesadilla out of the leftovers (didn't flip right the first time since it was my first time ever trying it)

Like mac and cheese with some burger in it and a kickass sauce. Note that when Budget Bytes refers to ounces of cheese, they're referring to weight, not fluid. I figured that out from. somewhere, I don't remember. The pictures on the site don't do it justice for how cheesy it is, but it is supposed to be that cheesy and it's really good. The recipe mentions how the hot dog relish really gives it that burger taste and I very much agree. I doubt I'll use it for anything else, but I made two batches of this recipe and I'm very satisfied with my purchase.

Used light coconut milk instead of regular, as suggested in the standalone savory coconut rice recipe, used the teriyaki sauce recipe rather than sweet chili sauce since I had all the ingredients for it already, and used a percentage of a larger can of pineapple chunks rather than an 8oz can of pineapple tidbits because stores near me did not have the latter. The star of this show was the coconut rice tbh. I don't usually like coconut because of its texture, but the coconut flavor along with the jasmine rice and the garlic all came together to make some really good-tasting rice. Especially since I used a rice cooker so I didn't need much water besides from the can of coconut milk. tbh this recipe doesn't really do the rice justice because the teriyaki mixture overpowers the subtle flavor of the rice. Maybe the sweet chili blends in better idk. Regardless, every component of this recipe tastes good. Only thing Iɽ change is that the recipe should call for an amount of broccoli that you can divide in four to make the same four portions that the chicken makes. Considering that frozen broccoli is sold in 12oz packages, not 16oz, I say just buy two packages and make them both at once and split in four for 6oz/portion rather than 5.3oz with none left for the fourth portion. Picture of how mine came out

This tasted very similar to the above since Iɽ replaced the sweet chili in the above with teriyaki anyway. I think I liked the above recipe slightly more because I prefer the broccoli in that recipe over the mixed peppers I bought for this one's frozen stir fry vegetables. Also the coconut rice. It's mostly a matter of which process you prefer I suppose and then customize your preferred process to suit your palette

I like this one chili recipe unlike the other one because it tells you how to customize it. Also because it tastes good. The customization options I used were using two pounds of beef rather than including beans, using Guinness beer instead of water (side note, not a big beer person, but I drank the leftover beer and I prefer Blue Moon and Miller Genuine Draft), and adding a teaspoon of smoked paprika, a cup of frozen corn kernels, some shredded cheese, scallions, and crushed tortilla chips. I really liked the chili a lot, but ngl by the sixth serving I was ready for something else. As a single man living alone, Iɽ definitely prefer if this recipe made four servings rather than six.

I should probably make this again now that I've made more things, this is only the second thing I made, but I was really surprised by how much I liked it considering I don't generally like beans. The Turkey Taco Skillet also has black beans in it though and I like that too, so I might just only like black beans idk. Some recommendations for making this: Use a mild salsa, not medium. I used medium tostitos salsa and it was a little too strong for me. Also, slice your jalapeno as thin as you can and don't refrigerate it. It's very easy to have the jalapeno flavor be too strong. Other than that, go ham on it, it's a surprisingly good recipe.

This would be ranked higher if the recipe were better made. They taste very good. Some tips: the rolls are never going to look like they do in the pictures, idk what filter they used on their camera or how their oven was miscalibrated or whatever. I used an oven thermometer to make sure my oven uses the right temperature and in waiting for it to get as golden on top as in the pictures, the bottom burned and the rolls were hard. They still tasted good after reheating them in the microwave on a damp paper towel since that softened them, but I recommend making them how I did the second time, only waiting a couple minutes longer than the 25 minutes the website says. They won't really look right, but they taste amazing, especially dipped in soup or olive oil. Some recommendations from the comments: If you want whole wheat, use one cup out of four rather than the usual two. Be super liberal with the flour. Use pinch and tuck rather than just rolling into balls. Use parchment paper rather than aluminum foil with cooking spray.

I used a nonstick skillet and a shitty bbq sauce (Open Pitt) and couldn't get it right. It still tasted pretty good because chicken, but if you're gonna make this, I recommend using a thicker bbq sauce and a stainless steel skillet or other type that's meant for making pan sauces, not nonstick. The pictures make it look super appetizing, but idk. I'll try it again when I buy a nonstick pan I suppose, it is chicken after all.

Not sure what the author loves about the sauce so much. This to me was very standard spaghetti in sauce with a very small amount of ground beef that really didn't do much to bring it up a notch or anything. Not bad in the slightest, but nothing special.

You have no idea the hell I went through to get pumpkin puree for this recipe. No store near me had it for some reason. Anyway, this was a fairly decent soup, nice flavor, nothing special, good to dip those rolls in. C Tier because fuck pumpkin puree and how hard it was to find.

This one was ok, but I don't like beans and it makes 9 servings so by the time I finished it, I was pretty sick of beans. If I were to make it again, Iɽ swap out the beans for more ground beef. Would probably taste good then tbh. I like the corn in this recipe.

Lots of beans, not really a fan, but I put in a lot of pepper which was great and of course it was good soup for dipping those rolls into.

I feel bad putting this last because I actually really liked the cauliflower and masala part, but there's a reason another name for chickpeas is garbanzo beans. They have the texture of beans. Not a fan.

This is the second to last recipe in the meal plan and at this point I am all beaned out and I just don't have it in me to make another 6 servings of a bean dish I know I won't like so I'm not bothering

All in all I had a pretty good time making and eating this food over the course of a month and a half or so. I really wish I liked beans because Budget Bytes uses them a lot and they're like, cheap and nutritious or something, but I've now tried beans in multiple dishes and I think I can say with certainty that I do not. I would recommend checking out this meal plan if you're like me and don't want to have to choose what to make every day. Some tips on using it: Do use the grocery list at the starting to know if you should buy something in bulk or just a small amount. Do look at the actual web page for each recipe so you can find tips and substitutions and comments rather than just the recipe. Do look at this post and the couple of tips I've scattered throughout. I hope yɺll enjoyed this post and will make some of those amazing S and A tier dishes. I was truly amazed at just how good the S tier ones were

Especially since I used a rice cooker so I didn't need much water besides from the can of coconut milk. tbh this recipe doesn't really do the rice justice because the teriyaki mixture overpowers the subtle flavor of the rice. Maybe the sweet chili blends in better idk. Regardless, every component of this recipe tastes good. Only thing Iɽ change is that the recipe should call for an amount of broccoli that you can divide in four to make the same four portions that the chicken makes. Considering that frozen broccoli is sold in 12oz packages, not 16oz, I say just buy two packages and make them both at once and split in four for 6oz/portion rather than 5.3oz with none left for the fourth portion. Picture of how mine came out

This tasted very similar to the above since Iɽ replaced the sweet chili in the above with teriyaki anyway. I think I liked the above recipe slightly more because I prefer the broccoli in that recipe over the mixed peppers I bought for this one's frozen stir fry vegetables. Also the coconut rice. It's mostly a matter of which process you prefer I suppose and then customize your preferred process to suit your palette

I like this one chili recipe unlike the other one because it tells you how to customize it. Also because it tastes good. The customization options I used were using two pounds of beef rather than including beans, using Guinness beer instead of water (side note, not a big beer person, but I drank the leftover beer and I prefer Blue Moon and Miller Genuine Draft), and adding a teaspoon of smoked paprika, a cup of frozen corn kernels, some shredded cheese, scallions, and crushed tortilla chips. I really liked the chili a lot, but ngl by the sixth serving I was ready for something else. As a single man living alone, Iɽ definitely prefer if this recipe made four servings rather than six.

I should probably make this again now that I've made more things, this is only the second thing I made, but I was really surprised by how much I liked it considering I don't generally like beans. The Turkey Taco Skillet also has black beans in it though and I like that too, so I might just only like black beans idk. Some recommendations for making this: Use a mild salsa, not medium. I used medium tostitos salsa and it was a little too strong for me. Also, slice your jalapeno as thin as you can and don't refrigerate it. It's very easy to have the jalapeno flavor be too strong. Other than that, go ham on it, it's a surprisingly good recipe.

This would be ranked higher if the recipe were better made. They taste very good. Some tips: the rolls are never going to look like they do in the pictures, idk what filter they used on their camera or how their oven was miscalibrated or whatever. I used an oven thermometer to make sure my oven uses the right temperature and in waiting for it to get as golden on top as in the pictures, the bottom burned and the rolls were hard. They still tasted good after reheating them in the microwave on a damp paper towel since that softened them, but I recommend making them how I did the second time, only waiting a couple minutes longer than the 25 minutes the website says. They won't really look right, but they taste amazing, especially dipped in soup or olive oil. Some recommendations from the comments: If you want whole wheat, use one cup out of four rather than the usual two. Be super liberal with the flour. Use pinch and tuck rather than just rolling into balls. Use parchment paper rather than aluminum foil with cooking spray.

I used a nonstick skillet and a shitty bbq sauce (Open Pitt) and couldn't get it right. It still tasted pretty good because chicken, but if you're gonna make this, I recommend using a thicker bbq sauce and a stainless steel skillet or other type that's meant for making pan sauces, not nonstick. The pictures make it look super appetizing, but idk. I'll try it again when I buy a nonstick pan I suppose, it is chicken after all.

Not sure what the author loves about the sauce so much. This to me was very standard spaghetti in sauce with a very small amount of ground beef that really didn't do much to bring it up a notch or anything. Not bad in the slightest, but nothing special.

You have no idea the hell I went through to get pumpkin puree for this recipe. No store near me had it for some reason. Anyway, this was a fairly decent soup, nice flavor, nothing special, good to dip those rolls in. C Tier because fuck pumpkin puree and how hard it was to find.

This one was ok, but I don't like beans and it makes 9 servings so by the time I finished it, I was pretty sick of beans. If I were to make it again, Iɽ swap out the beans for more ground beef. Would probably taste good then tbh. I like the corn in this recipe.

Lots of beans, not really a fan, but I put in a lot of pepper which was great and of course it was good soup for dipping those rolls into.

I feel bad putting this last because I actually really liked the cauliflower and masala part, but there's a reason another name for chickpeas is garbanzo beans. They have the texture of beans. Not a fan.

This is the second to last recipe in the meal plan and at this point I am all beaned out and I just don't have it in me to make another 6 servings of a bean dish I know I won't like so I'm not bothering

All in all I had a pretty good time making and eating this food over the course of a month and a half or so. I really wish I liked beans because Budget Bytes uses them a lot and they're like, cheap and nutritious or something, but I've now tried beans in multiple dishes and I think I can say with certainty that I do not. I would recommend checking out this meal plan if you're like me and don't want to have to choose what to make every day. Some tips on using it: Do use the grocery list at the starting to know if you should buy something in bulk or just a small amount. Do look at the actual web page for each recipe so you can find tips and substitutions and comments rather than just the recipe. Do look at this post and the couple of tips I've scattered throughout. I hope yɺll enjoyed this post and will make some of those amazing S and A tier dishes. I was truly amazed at just how good the S tier ones were


Ranking and Review of 14 Budget Bytes recipes

Some information on me that should inform how you read this post:

My cooking skills fall somewhere between beginner and intermediate. I've made recipes before and the basic eggs and stuff without a recipe and feel confident in my ability to follow a given recipe, but this is the first time I've been cooking

Other than the bad chili they served occasionally for two years in my high school, I never had tex-mex before

I made some substitutions and am judging based on them and will say by each recipe what they were

I am ranking mostly based on taste, not price or health or anything else

And so, the ranking from most favorite to least favorite

I replaced the oyster sauce with half hoisin sauce and half soy sauce. I really don't have much to say about this. It's just really fucking good. The flavors all come together really well and the crushed red pepper adds a nice spice that gives the whole thing the perfect bit of heat. I think the only thing I want to do different next time, other than maybe obtaining oyster sauce, is cracking the spaghetti in half to make it easier to apportion. Picture of how mine came out

I made this with ground beef instead of ground turkey and did not include the scallions/green onions. I don't really know the difference between the taco option and the quesadilla option, I think I did something in between. This is the one I just made so I haven't yet reheated the leftovers and eaten more than one portion. Regardless, who kept quesadillas/soft tacos from me all my life? idk if it's just this one or if they're generally amazing, but holy crap, it's really good, highly recommend it. Might edit in a picture if I can get a clean quesadilla out of the leftovers (didn't flip right the first time since it was my first time ever trying it)

Like mac and cheese with some burger in it and a kickass sauce. Note that when Budget Bytes refers to ounces of cheese, they're referring to weight, not fluid. I figured that out from. somewhere, I don't remember. The pictures on the site don't do it justice for how cheesy it is, but it is supposed to be that cheesy and it's really good. The recipe mentions how the hot dog relish really gives it that burger taste and I very much agree. I doubt I'll use it for anything else, but I made two batches of this recipe and I'm very satisfied with my purchase.

Used light coconut milk instead of regular, as suggested in the standalone savory coconut rice recipe, used the teriyaki sauce recipe rather than sweet chili sauce since I had all the ingredients for it already, and used a percentage of a larger can of pineapple chunks rather than an 8oz can of pineapple tidbits because stores near me did not have the latter. The star of this show was the coconut rice tbh. I don't usually like coconut because of its texture, but the coconut flavor along with the jasmine rice and the garlic all came together to make some really good-tasting rice.

I made this with ground beef instead of ground turkey and did not include the scallions/green onions. I don't really know the difference between the taco option and the quesadilla option, I think I did something in between. This is the one I just made so I haven't yet reheated the leftovers and eaten more than one portion. Regardless, who kept quesadillas/soft tacos from me all my life? idk if it's just this one or if they're generally amazing, but holy crap, it's really good, highly recommend it. Might edit in a picture if I can get a clean quesadilla out of the leftovers (didn't flip right the first time since it was my first time ever trying it)

Like mac and cheese with some burger in it and a kickass sauce. Note that when Budget Bytes refers to ounces of cheese, they're referring to weight, not fluid. I figured that out from. somewhere, I don't remember. The pictures on the site don't do it justice for how cheesy it is, but it is supposed to be that cheesy and it's really good. The recipe mentions how the hot dog relish really gives it that burger taste and I very much agree. I doubt I'll use it for anything else, but I made two batches of this recipe and I'm very satisfied with my purchase.

Used light coconut milk instead of regular, as suggested in the standalone savory coconut rice recipe, used the teriyaki sauce recipe rather than sweet chili sauce since I had all the ingredients for it already, and used a percentage of a larger can of pineapple chunks rather than an 8oz can of pineapple tidbits because stores near me did not have the latter. The star of this show was the coconut rice tbh. I don't usually like coconut because of its texture, but the coconut flavor along with the jasmine rice and the garlic all came together to make some really good-tasting rice. Especially since I used a rice cooker so I didn't need much water besides from the can of coconut milk. tbh this recipe doesn't really do the rice justice because the teriyaki mixture overpowers the subtle flavor of the rice. Maybe the sweet chili blends in better idk. Regardless, every component of this recipe tastes good. Only thing Iɽ change is that the recipe should call for an amount of broccoli that you can divide in four to make the same four portions that the chicken makes. Considering that frozen broccoli is sold in 12oz packages, not 16oz, I say just buy two packages and make them both at once and split in four for 6oz/portion rather than 5.3oz with none left for the fourth portion. Picture of how mine came out

This tasted very similar to the above since Iɽ replaced the sweet chili in the above with teriyaki anyway. I think I liked the above recipe slightly more because I prefer the broccoli in that recipe over the mixed peppers I bought for this one's frozen stir fry vegetables. Also the coconut rice. It's mostly a matter of which process you prefer I suppose and then customize your preferred process to suit your palette

I like this one chili recipe unlike the other one because it tells you how to customize it. Also because it tastes good. The customization options I used were using two pounds of beef rather than including beans, using Guinness beer instead of water (side note, not a big beer person, but I drank the leftover beer and I prefer Blue Moon and Miller Genuine Draft), and adding a teaspoon of smoked paprika, a cup of frozen corn kernels, some shredded cheese, scallions, and crushed tortilla chips. I really liked the chili a lot, but ngl by the sixth serving I was ready for something else. As a single man living alone, Iɽ definitely prefer if this recipe made four servings rather than six.

I should probably make this again now that I've made more things, this is only the second thing I made, but I was really surprised by how much I liked it considering I don't generally like beans. The Turkey Taco Skillet also has black beans in it though and I like that too, so I might just only like black beans idk. Some recommendations for making this: Use a mild salsa, not medium. I used medium tostitos salsa and it was a little too strong for me. Also, slice your jalapeno as thin as you can and don't refrigerate it. It's very easy to have the jalapeno flavor be too strong. Other than that, go ham on it, it's a surprisingly good recipe.

This would be ranked higher if the recipe were better made. They taste very good. Some tips: the rolls are never going to look like they do in the pictures, idk what filter they used on their camera or how their oven was miscalibrated or whatever. I used an oven thermometer to make sure my oven uses the right temperature and in waiting for it to get as golden on top as in the pictures, the bottom burned and the rolls were hard. They still tasted good after reheating them in the microwave on a damp paper towel since that softened them, but I recommend making them how I did the second time, only waiting a couple minutes longer than the 25 minutes the website says. They won't really look right, but they taste amazing, especially dipped in soup or olive oil. Some recommendations from the comments: If you want whole wheat, use one cup out of four rather than the usual two. Be super liberal with the flour. Use pinch and tuck rather than just rolling into balls. Use parchment paper rather than aluminum foil with cooking spray.

I used a nonstick skillet and a shitty bbq sauce (Open Pitt) and couldn't get it right. It still tasted pretty good because chicken, but if you're gonna make this, I recommend using a thicker bbq sauce and a stainless steel skillet or other type that's meant for making pan sauces, not nonstick. The pictures make it look super appetizing, but idk. I'll try it again when I buy a nonstick pan I suppose, it is chicken after all.

Not sure what the author loves about the sauce so much. This to me was very standard spaghetti in sauce with a very small amount of ground beef that really didn't do much to bring it up a notch or anything. Not bad in the slightest, but nothing special.

You have no idea the hell I went through to get pumpkin puree for this recipe. No store near me had it for some reason. Anyway, this was a fairly decent soup, nice flavor, nothing special, good to dip those rolls in. C Tier because fuck pumpkin puree and how hard it was to find.

This one was ok, but I don't like beans and it makes 9 servings so by the time I finished it, I was pretty sick of beans. If I were to make it again, Iɽ swap out the beans for more ground beef. Would probably taste good then tbh. I like the corn in this recipe.

Lots of beans, not really a fan, but I put in a lot of pepper which was great and of course it was good soup for dipping those rolls into.

I feel bad putting this last because I actually really liked the cauliflower and masala part, but there's a reason another name for chickpeas is garbanzo beans. They have the texture of beans. Not a fan.

This is the second to last recipe in the meal plan and at this point I am all beaned out and I just don't have it in me to make another 6 servings of a bean dish I know I won't like so I'm not bothering

All in all I had a pretty good time making and eating this food over the course of a month and a half or so. I really wish I liked beans because Budget Bytes uses them a lot and they're like, cheap and nutritious or something, but I've now tried beans in multiple dishes and I think I can say with certainty that I do not. I would recommend checking out this meal plan if you're like me and don't want to have to choose what to make every day. Some tips on using it: Do use the grocery list at the starting to know if you should buy something in bulk or just a small amount. Do look at the actual web page for each recipe so you can find tips and substitutions and comments rather than just the recipe. Do look at this post and the couple of tips I've scattered throughout. I hope yɺll enjoyed this post and will make some of those amazing S and A tier dishes. I was truly amazed at just how good the S tier ones were


Ranking and Review of 14 Budget Bytes recipes

Some information on me that should inform how you read this post:

My cooking skills fall somewhere between beginner and intermediate. I've made recipes before and the basic eggs and stuff without a recipe and feel confident in my ability to follow a given recipe, but this is the first time I've been cooking

Other than the bad chili they served occasionally for two years in my high school, I never had tex-mex before

I made some substitutions and am judging based on them and will say by each recipe what they were

I am ranking mostly based on taste, not price or health or anything else

And so, the ranking from most favorite to least favorite

I replaced the oyster sauce with half hoisin sauce and half soy sauce. I really don't have much to say about this. It's just really fucking good. The flavors all come together really well and the crushed red pepper adds a nice spice that gives the whole thing the perfect bit of heat. I think the only thing I want to do different next time, other than maybe obtaining oyster sauce, is cracking the spaghetti in half to make it easier to apportion. Picture of how mine came out
