I hate cooking what are some good frozen dinners like you would buy at wal-mart.

I like the boneless pork rib by Banquet. They're usually the cheapest ones. Some can be as much as $20-$2.50, but the Banquets generally run a buck.

ugh. I can't imagine eating them more than once in awhile. Talk about punching holes in your health and the cost is outrageous for anything even half-decent. That said, it varies as several brands have a few that I like...most of what I see at the grocery store are:

Healthy Choice
Smart Ones
Lean Cuisine
Marie Callendar
Stouffers
"cheapos" (Banquet, Michelenos etc)

Marie Callendar's are usually tastiest I think and (surprise) least healthy. Lean Cuisine has a beef tips n broccoli I like. Healthy Choice are OK but tend to be a bit bland and I don't like how they put the little "dessert" in there. Smart Ones mostly IMO aren't very good. I generally like Stouffers if nothing else grabs me.

I don't get the actual 'dinners' but I could make a meal out of either of these...

Stouffers spinach souffle

Marie Callender chicken pot pie - double crust - yum!

Both are full of sodium and other 'bad' things. The pot pie has loads of fat. Either turns out alright after being cooked in the microwave - hooray.

I suspect this is a joke thread? But either way - happy frozen food memories LOL.

Don't forget Amy's Organic. I think the Mexican enchiladas are good, and I assume the other items are too. Kind of expensive, though.
I agree the Marie Callenders are good, but what you should definitely try are the PF Chang frozen entrees. This would require you to warm it in a pan, if that's not too much for you. Get yourself a pouch of 90 second microwavable Uncle Ben's rice to have with it.
Not frozen, but have you tried the take and bake pizza from Walmart/Sam's? It's good.

Jennie O boneless white meat turkey breast is a great buy-( but if if your watching sodium it's high). It's not a whole dinner-but add stove top stuffing which is easy to make- steam fresh corn and if you want a salad- it's an easy meal!

My favorite frozen dinner for years has been Stouffer's Chicken ala King. I also like their stuffed peppers, lasagne, and salisbury steak with mac and cheese.

Its not too often that I do frozen dinners, maybe something for lunch at work but my preference is home cooked. And I buy only the Marie Calendars. It costs a little more but the taste is worth it.
