Dinner on a Dime

I needed a quick and painless dinner tonight, so this is what I did. You can pay $12.50 for 5 pre-made burgers or you can pay $5.00 for 7, you do the math.

This is what I did tonight:
2 pounds of ground beef = $7.50 (on sale)
bread crumbs
parmesan cheese (the dried up spaghetti kind)
1 egg
Parsley
1 package of hamburger buns $1.27
american cheese (if necessary)
Frozen French Fries $2.50

You want to mix the ingredients together to form a patty. I don’t measure anymore, but add equal amounts of parmesan cheese and bread crumbs and it is done just so that the meat will pack well. The egg helps it to stick, and the parsley gives it extra flavor. I was able to make 7 patties out of 2 pounds of ground beef.

For $11.27, I was able to feed my family of 5.

Dinner on a Dime

That is what I am calling my dinner recipes because they really do not cost much at all to make and it will feed a family of 5! Tonight we are having the ever loving “Chicken with Cream of…” dinner. This is a family favorite and very inexpensive to make.

Chicken Breasts (I use 5 for my family) = .58 each (great deal on Tyson boxed breasts)
2 cans of Cream of Celery Soup = .58 each can
Egg Noodles = 2.48 (bag and I will only use half the bag)
1 Can of Carrots = .50
1 Can of Peas = .50

Cook chicken breasts on both sides until fully cooked.
Mix 2 cans of Cream soup with 1/2 cup of milk and heat
Make egg noodles and peas/carrots and mix together
Pour cream soup over noodle mixture and eat with chicken.

YUM! Quick and easy, and best of all CHEAP!!! To feed my family of 5, it cost me $6.30!
