Today we’re focusing on favorite frugal meals for Frugal Tips Friday #3.
I don’t cook a lot. It seems I’m always so busy I just eat what’s fast. And I need to do better.
Egg Salad Sandwiches:
A quick frugal meal for me is an egg salad sandwich. Toasted bread with egg salad made of 1 egg, mayonnaise, diced sweet pickle and seasonings like onion powder.
I typically fix baked beans to have with my egg salad sandwich and then I have baked beans for days or possibly a week.
Veggie Burger Meal:
Another quick frugal meal for me is a veggie burger. I put one in my electric skillet. Then when it’s about done I put the two halves of my hamburger bun in the skillet with it to brown them as well.
I add mustard and dill pickle slices to my veggie burger. Sometimes I add a slice of cheese. And in the summer I add tomato slices, lettuce and sometimes an onion if I have them.
I also like baked beans with my veggie burger. So there’s another use for my baked beans in the week I have an egg salad sandwich.
All Veggie Meal:
Sometimes I’m hungry for an all veggie meal.
I might have a salad and two or three veggies. A baked potato is a good filler with margarine and sour cream and chives.
Then I add a hot roll or fix some cornbread. I’m a beans and cornbread and sweet tea kind of girl!
As you can see, I don’t go to a lot of trouble. I eat pretty simply.
So what are your favorite frugal meals?
One of you mentioned bulk meals, so maybe that is your favorite frugal meal. Or freezer meals or both. You could add that here as well.
Would also love suggestions on future Frugal Friday posts.
