What do we do?
We help busy families prepare healthy, delicious meals in a fraction of the time it normally takes – at a fraction of the cost of a restaurant meal. We offer a new set of main entrees every month, which you can purchase one at a time or through our quantity discounts. We also offer side dishes, desserts, and items for kids, lunches or light dinners.
We order our food based on orders we receive so everything is always fresh. We strive to select ingredients that do not contain preservatives, highly processed sugars and trans fats. We can also accommodate many special dietary needs, including gluten free. Our recipes represent time-tested recipes that families like yours have tried and loved. Stop in at either our Lakewood or Lone Tree location and check us out!
How do I place an order?
It's easy! For online ordering, just select the MENU icon or click the ORDER NOW tab on the HOME page.
Then, choose your entree choices, order logistics, date and time, and payment options. We offer two options in terms of order logistics: (1) You can choose to PICK UP at either our LONE TREE store or LAKEWOOD store. (2) You can choose DELIVERY (subject to delivery fee).
Or if you prefer, you can call us to place an order. Please note that we request 24 hours notice for all orders.
You may also order in person at either store - we always love to see you!
NOTE: Meals made for store pickup will likely be frozen. By solidly freezing your meals in our commercial freezers, your food will travel more safely, require less energy by your home freezer, and actually have an extended shelf life. Should you want one or more of your meals fresh, not frozen, just let us know. Delivery orders will arrive frozen.
How much does it cost?
Entree prices are "a la carte" and vary depending upon ingredients (for example, you would expect to pay more for a shrimp dish than a vegetarian dish.) Also, prices vary depending on entree size: we offer three sizes of entrees: (1) Large size serves 6, (2) Medium size serves 3, and (3) Small size serves 2. Entree costs per serving are as low as $4.80 when purchased in quantity discounts.
* Prices do not include tax
What payment options are available?
You can order through our website which allows you to pay via Visa, MasterCard, AMEX or Discover. You can also pay by check, cash or credit card when you come into the store to pick up your order.
How does Easy Entrées save time?
We do all the work for you, including the planning, shopping, and ingredient preparation (like chopping vegetables!) Meals are made fresh and designed to be frozen so that you always have a meal on hand to thaw, cook, and serve. Meals can be frozen for up to 3 months. When you’re ready to eat, simply thaw the entree and follow the simple cooking instructions. Our meals require only basic preparation, such as baking, simmering, sautéing or grilling – most meals are ready in 30 minutes or less.
If you want to save even more time, Easy Entrées can deliver them right to your front door at a modest additional charge.
How can Easy Entrées save me money?
We buy high-quality ingredients at wholesale prices and pass the savings on to you. And, since we offer a new menu of 16-20 entrees every month, you can try new recipes and enjoy "culinary diversity" – all without investing in full-sized containers of spices, herbs, cooking wines, extracts and other expensive ingredients. Also, there is very little waste with our meals, as we provide exactly what is needed to cook and serve each one. Say "goodbye" to that half-used onion or now-unidentifiable container of something at the back of the refrigerator!
What makes Easy Entrées healthier than fast food or frozen meals?
Our meals are made from scratch with quality ingredients, including, for example, restaurant-quality beef, all-natural (hormone- and antibiotic-free) poultry and pork, and wild-caught Alaskan salmon – at least a grade above what’s available in the grocery stores! We only use natural seasonings, juices, extracts, and herbs in all of our recipes. We strive to offer fresh fruits and vegetables and source locally produced and/or organic foods whenever possible! Nearly all of our sauces are homemade. We seek products free of MSG, trans fats, and excessive preservatives. And, because we always strive to provide the healthiest choice, our entrées are often more nutritionally balanced than fast food or processed meals.
What are the menus like?
We focus on creating seasonal menus with wide appeal. We also like trying new and interesting combinations and flavors. We typically offer 16-20 different entrees every month, with the more popular entrees offered on a recurring basis. We also offer Gluten Free entrees and side dishes, which can be found under our Gluten Free tab. Included with all of our meals are easy-to-follow cooking instructions, and most meals take less than 30 minutes to cook.
What if I don’t want certain ingredients in my meals?
Some people don’t like onions, while others can’t get enough…we all have different tastes. Not to worry, Easy Entrées creates all dishes with flexibility in mind. Except for the primary ingredients such as meat, poultry or fish, you may alter entrées as you wish. If you don’t like cheese, leave it out. Watching your waistline? Reduce the amount of butter or olive oil. It’s all up to you. If you would like to alter an entree, please indicate this under Order Comments / Special Instructions when you place your order.
Please note the following:
- Special requests apply to the preparation of entrees only.
- Special requests may require an extra business day to prepare and/or an additional charge. We will call to let you know.
We can also accommodate some food sensitivities and allergies; however, please know that although we will take every precaution to ensure your meals are made to your specifications, our kitchen produces a diverse menu and we cannot guarantee there will be no cross-contamination. If food sensitivites or allergies are life-threatening, we may not be your resource for meals. With that said, we would love to serve you and encourage you to call us with any questions or concerns you may have!
What do I need to bring when picking up my order?
Completed entrées are packaged in boxes, plastic freezer bags or foil pans provided by us. Your entrees will be placed in re-useable plastic carryout bags. If you're feeling "green," bring your own insulated bags or large cooler to safely transport your delicious meals home!
