Friday Dinner Recipes: Muffuletta Sandwich And Chocolate Truffles

Ease into the weekend without lifting a fork

Not feeling inspired by your usual dishes? Here's what's for dinner.

You've worked hard this week, so there's no reason to put in any more effort today. And that means feeding yourself with your hands, the two most useful eating utensils in your kitchen. But you don't have to go the defrosted frozen dinner route—from a sweet, lemony oyster to a silky chocolate truffle, a dinner of homemade finger food awaits.

① Appetizer: Oysters with Preserved Lemon and Apple

Keep your forks on lock and start your night off with a classy seafood bite—or slurp rather. Plus, if you're cooking for two, we hear oysters are the way to go.

② Main Course: Muffuletta

The best way to eat a real meal without using silverware? Put it on bread. This New Orleans classic had us at "piles of meat." We can't help it; we're still in Southern mode.

③ Dessert: Toasted Almond Truffles

These one-bite wonders pack as much chocolate flavor as a slice of cake. We suggest you store any spares in your freezer for when a craving strikes.
