‘Young & Hungry’ Will Return This Summer, So Satiate Your Hiatus Hunger With These Recipes From The Show
With its spring finale on Wednesday, April 6, fans are wondering when will Young and Hungry return? Season 3's fall series is on its way, don't worry. And, when it airs, the second half of Season 3 could create more fodder for Gabi and Josh’s "will they/won’t they" dynamic, but it will also bring more of Gabi’s innovative and tasty recipes. As a personal chef on the series, Gabi (played by Emily Osment) is always whipping up something enviable, but is Freeform cooking up another season beyond the second half of Season 3? Will Young & Hungry return for Season 4? [UPDATE: Emily Osment confirmed on Instagram that the show will return June 1.]
According to TVLine, Young & Hungry has been renewed by Freeform for a fourth season, though a premiere date has not yet been set. And, we still have more to expect from Season 3, with its summer premiere expected to air in a few months (based on the premiere date of previous seasons). While there will be some down time between the spring finale and the show's return, there are a couple of ways fans can satiate their Young & Hungry craving. You can marathon old episodes on Netflix or make recipes from the show. (Or both!) Why should Gabi and her closet of adorable aprons have all of the fun in the kitchen? Here are the 9 best dishes seen on Young & Hungry, with recipes you can try at home.
1. Cheeseburgers On Pretzel Bread
In “Young & Secret,” Gabi whips up some cheeseburgers on pretzel bread for Josh and Cooper. Her secret ingredient? Store-bought ketchup. Her secret work affair? Cooper.

2. Champagne Deviled Eggs With Caviar
Considering this recipe appeared in “Young & Pregnant” I could make a gross egg joke here, but I won’t.
3. Josh’s Favorite Chocolate Chip Banana Nut Muffins
Gabi made Josh these adorable muffins in “Young & Thirty,” though she saved Sofia the runt muffin made from leftover batter.

4. Car Funeral Lemon Pies
Gabi’s pie scheme does not save her car, so she serves the lemon pie collateral at her car’s funeral. Whatever the occasion, lemon pie is a good choice.

5. Bacon In The Pie Crust
When Gabi and Jilly (Josh’s then girlfriend) face off in the kitchen, Gabi’s signature move (bacon in the pot pie crust) is a dead giveaway.

6. Fudgy Cake For Benji
Turns out, Sofia’s little brother Benji has changed a lot since Gabi saw him last. But, he still loves fudgy cake.

7. Food Truck Bacon Mac 'N' Cheese Pops
No wonder Gabi and Jake’s food truck sold out! Also, why does food always taste better on a stick?

8. Peanut Butter Wedding Cake
In “Young & Earthquake,” Gabi sets up a cake tasting for Elliot and Alan, and for Elliot the clear winner is the peanut butter cake. Yum.

9. Life-Changing Grilled Cheese
It all started with a grilled cheese sandwich. Gabi snagged her job — and Josh’s heart — in the pilot after making him a grilled cheese sandwich.
See you in the summer for the show's return, hopefully with some more yummy snacks!
