I thought this would be a nice add on to Star's post. Ideas could be posted here and then recipes could be posted or PMed for. Oatmeal. Not the processed box of envelopes, the box round box of Quaker Oats. Much cheaper that way and you can add whatever you want to it after it has cooked. Kids loved it with applesauce, brown sugar, or peaches. And honestly, not hard to made and doesn't take that much time. French toast I don't know how others make it but I can stretch 2 eggs between 6 people this way. Pancakes Get your grandmother's or mother's recipe. It's cheaper, and it's easier than you think. Buiscuts Same as for pancakes. Or get the huge box of Jiffy mix. My family gets all the buiscuts they want for dirt cheap. (can also make pancakes from this too) Pot roast or shoulder beef roast Can be roast and gravy - turns into beef and noodles the following day Pot roast with potatoes and carrots - turns into either beef stew or beef hash. I've even made a good soup by adding veggies. Pork roast (or loin) I serve as a roast the first day -second becomes pulled pork (with or without bbq sauce) Whole roasting chicken Bake as chicken the first day _ then turns into chicken hash or chicken and noodles. Could also make a chicken soup by adding veggies. Pork chops Baked, bbq, or candied a fairly cheap meal. Cubed steak chicken fried steak (another cheap meal) mmmmmmmm add brown gravy and bake and it's salisbury steak lol chicken leg quarters (cheap because you cut them up yourself) fried chicken, baked chicken (when in a hurry), bbq chicken (yum) Pork steak cheap meal. I fry it. A family fav Hamburger cheeseburger macaroni, spagetti, sloppy joes, meatloaf, stuffed peppers, stuffed cabbage rolls.......... Some others....... Cheese spagetti Can add hot dogs, hamburger, or just with the cheese. Ham n' beans Made with a ham hock it's delicious and stays good for a long time. Serves many meals. I'll probably think of more.........but this gets it started.
