    Default What is your most inexpensive meal?

    I am looking for really inexpensive meals to make. They need also be

    healthy and contain at least 1 serving vegetable, protein and

    starch/grain per person.



    My healthiest and least expensive meal is vegetable stir fry over rice

    and egg drop soup. I can always find a 16 ounce bag of mixed

    vegetables for $1, old fashion long cooking rice is .69 a pound and

    eggs are around $1.70 a dozen, so per serving it is less than .50 each.



    Any other ideas?

    I make a Tuna Noodle Casserole that costs me under $3

    (because I get all the stuff on sale and stock up when

    its cheap)



    Boil Egg Noodles (I use 1/2 a bag because its just me

    and my 2 kids) Then add all these together, noodles, 1

    can cream of mushroom, 1/2 can peas, 1 can tuna, 1/2

    cup milk, small amount of shredded cheese. Then top

    with a sleeve of RITZ crackers. Bake for 20 min at

    350 degrees.

    Omelets with cheese and veggies are also really good, inexpensive meals.

    Add some homemade bread as a side item if you need a starch.

    I am a vegetarian, lacto ovo. I boil angel hair pasta

    and over a colander I steam green peppers, carrots or

    broccoli or whatever veggies you like and have that

    over the pasta with cheese. You can use ground beef

    or in my case, boca substitutes.



    Also, pound for pound, baked potatoes with cheese

    makes a great low cal/ low cost meal.

    I make pancakes for dinner sometimes. I buy the complete mix on sale for .99 and

    it lasts us at least 3 or 4 meals. You just have to add water. I also stock up

    on breakfast sausage and bacon when its on sale and keep it in the freezer. Its

    a quick, easy dinner and because we don't have them often, the kids LOVE the

    novelty of it.

    This is Yugoslavian thing that my mom use to make. We take old home made bread (with hard crust and heavy bread) cut it on a thicker side. Make french toast from it. When you flip it on the other side sprinkle mozzarella cheese so it melts while the first side is browning. To serve we pour tomato juice over it. As dessert we then pour maple syrup over it. My kids love it. We will have it for breakfast or dinner.

    Also I cook egg noodles, drain and rinse in cold water. In another pot I will peel and (small) cubed potatoes, cook and drain. In a frying pan I will brown onions and add paprika. In the potato pot add noodles, the onion mixture
    and 1/2 to 1 c water, salt to taste. Heat thoroughly and serve.

    Then in another pot I will ad 1 or 2 eggs, oil, cottage cheese, feta cheese and noodles. Heat till the cheeses melts, add water and salt.

    Crapes are inexpensive. Milk, flour, an egg or 2 and little salt. You can sprinkle sugar on it, preserve, hazelnut chocolate spread. We like it best with cottage cheese and sliced strawberries.

    When I was a little girl we didn't have a hole lot, so my mom was creative with what she had and today I still enjoy it and so do our kids.

    I like to roast whole red peppers till the skin is black. Peel and remove seeds and cord. Separate in 1/2 and bread it. I make a pepper, cheese and tomato sandwich.

    I love to cook.

    I read your post and I have used this meal which can be inexpensive if you have ground beef or ground turkey around

    1 lb ground beef/turkey
    1 1/2 cup long grain rice
    1 8oz can tomato sauce
    1 tsp garlic powder
    1/2 tsp comino
    1 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp pepper
    3 cups water

    Brown ground beef/turkey drain off fat
    pour rice into frying pan and cook until it is white
    Add rest of ingredients. I usually put the tomato sauce in first followed by the water then the spiceYou can add mixed Vegetables to the pan right after all the spices. Cover and simmer until the rice is fully cooked. You can stir it several times.

    (1) Beans and cornbread. Make some red beans in the slow cooker, season well. Add some smoked sausage or ground beef or even pot roast if you have it, to bulk it up. Serve over rice for a bit of variety. Put a green veggie or a salad on the side. Quick easy and very economical. Esp. if you use dry beans! In our area, they can be had for $0.49 a bag. (2) Chili (3) Homemade breakfast - pancakes, eggs, fried potatoes. If you have it, add a meat of some kind - ham, bacon, sausage, smoked sausage, etc. (4) Oatmeal, some bacon and toast on the side. (5) Cream of Wheat (5) Biscuits, bacon and eggs (6) Homemade pizza (much less expensive than delivery and easy to customize) Herlean
