Why we like them: Eggs are a great source of protein and don't necessarily have to be carefully tended while they cook; this recipe also easily scales up or down. If that pack of eggs is cheaper per ounce, go ahead and get it -- eggs last a while and are good for so many things.

The beauty of this recipe is that you simply crack your eggs into an oven-proof dish and let them cook undisturbed -- no monitoring a skillet or swirling water for poached eggs. They're enriched with some butter, cream and cheese use whatever you have on hand and go a little lighter on the dairy if it seems too rich and are perfect with a crunchy piece of toast.

You can easily decrease or increase the ingredient amounts and the size of your cooking vessel depending on how many mouths you have to feed. And you could even serve this for lunch or dinner with a simple salad on the side.

Get this easy baked eggs recipe. Why we like them: They're another great protein-rich breakfast, require zero utensils, can be made ahead -- and welcome any leftover meats and veggies you're looking to use up. This keto-friendly egg bite recipe made in mini muffin pans from the Dirty, Lazy, Keto Cookbook is perfect for anyone missing their morning run to Starbucks.

If you have a multicooker, a similar Instant Pot egg bite recipe will yield a jigglier texture. Switch up the mix-ins depending on what you have; even plain, a few dashes of your favorite spices will jazz them up enough to make you happy to wake up to them all week.

Why we like it: Oats are a good plant-based form of protein as well as fiber to help keep you full all morning -- and if you have the option to buy in bulk, they'll cost much less than packaged oats or oatmeal.

If you really love oatmeal, have a bunch of kids that need breakfast every morning too or simply want to meal prep by batch cooking, this Crock Pot oatmeal recipe makes six to eight servings and is a breeze to throw together.

You can use whole milk or coconut milk, and top it off with whatever you have: fresh, frozen or dried fruit; nuts; shredded coconut or even chocolate chips. If you prefer quick hits, Instant Pot oatmeal is a no-brainer.

And either way, you can freeze individual servings in muffin cups for easy future breakfasts just defrost in the microwave. Why we like them: Chia seeds are considered a superfood and while they can be expensive per pound depending on where you buy them, you don't need to use a lot at once; if they're off the table, you can prepare regular oats in the same manner.

Sure, smoothies are pretty easy, but overnight oats or chia pudding are even easier, because you mix everything up the night before and just take it out of the fridge in the a.

This overnight oats recipe combines ½ cup of rolled oats with a tablespoon of chia seeds plus Greek yogurt, honey, milk and summer fruit. It's a great starting point, but you can use whatever flavorings, fruit and other toppings you prefer or happen to have available.

These overnight oats don't require any chia and demonstrate the near-endless topping possibilities. Why we like them: If you stick to a simple formula and already have certain things like vanilla and honey in your cupboard , buying oats, nuts and dried fruit from bulk bins lets you get the exact quantities and types you like at a cheaper price per pound than premade granola -- plus you can control how much sugar and oil is added.

Not only is homemade granola usually much cheaper than store-bought, it's healthier too -- you know exactly how much sugar and what kind is in the mix, and you can control the ratios of all ingredients to suit your particular tastes.

Skip the nuts if allergies are a problem. You don't even have to stick to oats, as this homemade granola recipe tutorial shows. Keep it around for a relatively healthy snack, or use it to top your favorite yogurt for breakfast. If your pressure cooker has a yogurt function, try this Instant Pot yogurt recipe to save even more money.

Why we like them: Bananas are affordable if you don't buy organic, they average 57 cents per pound and famously high in potassium -- and you can use them even when they're a little overripe instead of tossing them out and wasting money. This vegan recipe doesn't cancel out their benefits with tons of added sugar either.

Prefer baked goods for breakfast? There's no rule that says you can't eat banana bread for the first meal of the day, but for a less sugary option that's also vegan and gluten-free, try this chocolate banana crunch muffin recipe. Instead of adding butter, eggs and refined sugar and flour to the batter, the mashed bananas mingle with coconut oil, a chia egg , and oat and almond flour, plus cocoa powder for the chocolate boost.

Sweetened with maple syrup and topped with granola, they're a real treat that you can feel really good about eating and giving to your kids. Also, they're much easier than homemade bagels.

Substitutions: Don't have coconut oil? Use another neutral vegetable oil instead. No chia seeds to make a chia egg? Substitute 2 tablespoons water plus 2 teaspoons baking powder and 1 teaspoon vegetable oil -- or just ¼ cup of carbonated water.

All out of maple syrup? Honey works just as well here. And if you have whole oats and almonds in your pantry, you can grind both into flour in a food processor just don't blend the almonds too long or you'll get nut butter, which is another nice thing to make at home.

If you don't want to have to think about swaps, though, these healthy banana muffins are similar but call for more common ingredients and you can use regular all-purpose flour instead of whole wheat if AP is all you have.

Why we like it: Made from just three ingredients one of which is instant coffee granules, which tend to be much cheaper than whole or ground beans , this is a true treat that costs far less than anything you've ever bought from Starbucks but we show you how to make Starbucks classics at home , too.

Have you seen this pillowy coffee drink all over social media and immediately assumed you could never pull it off at home? It's actually really easy -- and only involves three ingredients five if you count ice and water. Simply whisk instant coffee granules or espresso powder with white sugar and hot water until it fluffs up, then spoon it into a glass of iced milk whether conventional dairy or a plant-based alternative.

You have a fancy latte alternative any barista would be proud of. Here, you'll find mostly no-cook recipes and some grown-up versions of childhood favorites that actual kids will also like. Why we like it: Canned tuna is a consistently affordable source of low-fat, high-protein nutrition that has all the essential amino acids you need.

There's zero shame in tuna salad, especially when it's dressed up with adult add-ins like fennel, parsley, Dijon and lemon zest that said, check out even more tuna salad recipes if you're fresh out of fresh produce.

You can serve this on bread, scoop it up with crackers and veggies or pile it on fresh greens. And if you're feeding kids, mix up a big batch of tuna with everything except the ingredients they'll object to, then add those extras to what's left over for your own lunch.

Get a grown-up tuna salad recipe. I make it with four cans chili, beans, diced tomatoes, corn and two packets taco seasoning and ranch seasoning. If I'm feeling fancy, I add a can of diced green chiles. Serve with tortilla chips, shredded cheese, sour cream or plain yogurt , and lime juice.

You sauté yellow onions, or if you have a texture issue with those, go right to slicing and frying potatoes. Slice extra thin to reduce cook time, and once the potatoes are cooked through almost see-through , dump them in a can of tomatoes stewed or diced.

Then, you start layering shredded mozzarella and pepperoni, either regular or turkey. Put the lid on and let it simmer as the pepperoni warms and the cheese melts. It feeds an army! Take a pound of whatever meat you have ground meats usually work best and brown them in a skillet.

Then dump them along with any veggies you want to add canned is what I usually use and two cans of crushed tomatoes. Add a tablespoon of garlic salt, a sprinkle of pepper, and any other spices or herbs you want.

If all you have is packets of, like, stew mix or chili mix, these work well also. Leave the crockpot on low for six hours. So for me, it would be dal khichdi. Super easy to make. The base ingredients are the same, but you can fine-tune it to what you want. You can make it less spicy and more spicy and flavorful.

Make it plain. Add in veggies. Or serve it with any other humble yet solid side dish, and that's a happy, filled-up tummy. Brown the ground beef and cook the rice. I like to sauté the cabbage a little bit, too. Then, mix everything in a casserole dish, season to taste, and bake for about 20 minutes at ºF.

I make batch meals all the time, which are probably my favorite, making me at least six servings. I usually cook enough at a time for one serving, and it fills me up until the next meal, and I can eat off of one box of soup and a bag of noodles for about a week and a half.

Cook hamburger and onion, drain off all grease, and cook macaroni in salted water just shy of done. Add macaroni to the meat along with undiluted mushroom soup only Campbell's, NO store brands with salt and pepper to taste. Stir thoroughly, sprinkle with parsley, and it will feed six to eight small children.

Usually ready in 20 to 25 minutes, too. You can feed a family of five with some leftovers at the end. Every tortilla is unique and tailored to the person making it.

We have those with chips, a side salad, or whatever is handy.

We have those with chips, a side salad, or whatever is handy. Seasoned, chopped potatoes with rosemary, salt, pepper, and garlic powder about four dollars for a five-pound bag and mixed vegetables five dollars are all thrown into the oven.

This meal is so quick and easy and also lasts a while! One of our family staples. While the meat mixture thickens, prepare two boxes of cornbread in a bowl and set them aside. Once the moisture is reduced, pour the meat mixture into a 13x9 dish, sprinkle four to six ounces of shredded cheese, and spread the cornbread mixture over the cheese.

Bake at degrees for around 40 minutes until a toothpick in the cornbread comes out clean. My family loves it, especially my daughter. It also serves as a good base for modifications. Great when it's too hot to cook or those busy summer days when there's no time to prepare anything.

We add garlic and onion powder, pepper, salt, and cayenne pepper. We serve chicken over white rice or noodles when it is fully cooked. During the summer, we often marinate chicken breasts in the same marinade mixture and grill outside on our charcoal grill.

It's a cheap, easy, and somewhat quick dish that our young kids and us adults go back for again and again. Eat with your favorite kind of tortilla chips. This is my go-to when I need a quick, easy meal I can microwave when I don't feel like cooking.

No, it's not 'healthy,' but no one complains! If your pressure cooker has a yogurt function, try this Instant Pot yogurt recipe to save even more money.

And if you're feeding kids, mix up a big batch of tuna with everything except the ingredients they'll object to, then add those extras to what's left over for your own lunch. Get a grown-up tuna salad recipe. Why we like it: Protein-packed peanut butter is usually not expensive though of course it depends on the brand you buy and a little goes a long way unless you find yourself snacking on it with a spoon several times a day.

If you've never tried applying heat to the classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich, prepare to fall in love all over again. Once you inevitably become enamored, try these grilled peanut butter sandwich combos for even more revelatory lunches. Most kids will inhale these too.

They happen to be particularly great for reviving frozen bread ditto any other toasted or grilled sandwich. If you or your kids can't eat peanut butter but you have a food processor, you'll usually find it cheaper per ounce to make homemade nut butter instead of buying it at the store. Why we like it: It saves your bread from going stale and lets you use up all kinds of leftovers that might otherwise be thrown away which is tantamount to putting money in the garbage.

This pita pizza recipe is awesome for any meal. Simply top store-bought pita bread or other flatbread with cheese and the toppings of your choice, including any leftover cooked meat or veggies you might have.

You can also add sauce if you like. No cheese? Try something like this chorizo and olive flatbread recipe instead. And if you only have regular bread in the house, this easy Italian toast recipe is in the same delicious wheelhouse.

Making a roasted chicken for dinner is almost as easy as picking up a rotisserie bird -- but however you get there, the chicken will usually yield plenty of meat for lunch the next day too.

If you're lucky enough to have a wealth of leftover poultry, make it into a lively curry chicken salad with almonds, apples, raisins and mango chutney but it will still be delicious if you only have one or two of those fruity mix-ins to contrast the mild spices and savory flavors.

Or try another non-boring chicken salad recipe. As with tuna, you can turn it into a sandwich, use it to top a green salad or simply scoop it up. Why we like it: Beans and legumes are another great plant-based protein; when it comes to cost, dried beans will almost always cost less per serving than canned, but you may prefer to pay a bit more for the convenience of precooked.

If you want to cook them from dried, remember you'll need to soak them overnight first. This may seem basic, but hummus is always satisfying, and pretty healthy as long as you add lots of fresh veggies for dipping along with your pita. Homemade hummus is easy to make with canned chickpeas, but if you're fresh out, try making black bean hummus , white bean hummus or even red lentil hummus.

Have a little spinach or fresh herbs about to wilt? Throw them in too like in the spinach and basil hummus recipe above. In addition to dipping things in any of the above for a grown-up Lunchables sort of affair, you can use hummus as a sandwich or wrap spread, or even in place of mayo in egg salad.

Get cooking with pantry staples. Why we like it: Per serving, beans are much more cost effective than meat and depending on the type of meat, they may be healthier too. Combining beans with ground beef or turkey means you can use less meat and will still be plenty full.

Beans are a pantry power player, and we have a plethora of favorite bean recipes for all kinds of canned and dried beans. But one of the most iconic would have to be chili -- and this easy Crock Pot chili recipe with ground beef and kidney beans is a favorite for the way it basically cooks itself.

You can pick up 4 meals at a time, and eat them for dinner for two days. You can pick up a container of lunch meat or peanut butter and jelly and bread for sandwiches with baby carrots and chips at Lunch, and milk and cereal for breakfast.

Photo Credit: Pat Durkin. The key to subway is to just go for the sandwich and skip the drink and chips. Get a foot long sub, so you can eat the second half for lunch the next day. Drink water at home and pair it with anything found in your house: yogurt, chips, ice cream, raisins and peanuts, or anything you can find.

Hint: You can order online and just walk in and pick it up with no wait. Add cereal, bananas and milk for breakfast. Just need a quick meal out at a cheap restaurant? Try these ideas…. Little Caesars. Perfect to take to a soccer game and eat in the stands rather than taking everyone to the drive thru.

Read my full disclosure policy here. I am ALL about going out to eat for avoiding insanity! I wish we had a Wegmans close by again… I love that grocery store!!! Happy to share Aspen! I just told my husband last night that proximity to a Wegmans would be a huge factor in deciding where we move to.

However, dining out is one thing we really enjoy. But, we never go without a coupon or a deal. It really does make it as cheap as eating at home. Especially if you can control your portions and bring leftovers home.

We usually save eating out for when life gets in the way, since dining out with a 2 year old and a newborn is soooo not fun.

There's zero shame in tuna salad, especially when it's dressed up with adult add-ins like fennel, parsley, Dijon and lemon zest that said, check out even more tuna salad recipes if you're fresh out of fresh produce.

You can serve this on bread, scoop it up with crackers and veggies or pile it on fresh greens. And if you're feeding kids, mix up a big batch of tuna with everything except the ingredients they'll object to, then add those extras to what's left over for your own lunch.

Get a grown-up tuna salad recipe. Why we like it: Protein-packed peanut butter is usually not expensive though of course it depends on the brand you buy and a little goes a long way unless you find yourself snacking on it with a spoon several times a day.

If you've never tried applying heat to the classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich, prepare to fall in love all over again. Once you inevitably become enamored, try these grilled peanut butter sandwich combos for even more revelatory lunches.

Most kids will inhale these too. They happen to be particularly great for reviving frozen bread ditto any other toasted or grilled sandwich.

If you or your kids can't eat peanut butter but you have a food processor, you'll usually find it cheaper per ounce to make homemade nut butter instead of buying it at the store.

Why we like it: It saves your bread from going stale and lets you use up all kinds of leftovers that might otherwise be thrown away which is tantamount to putting money in the garbage. This pita pizza recipe is awesome for any meal. Simply top store-bought pita bread or other flatbread with cheese and the toppings of your choice, including any leftover cooked meat or veggies you might have.

You can also add sauce if you like. No cheese? Try something like this chorizo and olive flatbread recipe instead. And if you only have regular bread in the house, this easy Italian toast recipe is in the same delicious wheelhouse.

Making a roasted chicken for dinner is almost as easy as picking up a rotisserie bird -- but however you get there, the chicken will usually yield plenty of meat for lunch the next day too. If you're lucky enough to have a wealth of leftover poultry, make it into a lively curry chicken salad with almonds, apples, raisins and mango chutney but it will still be delicious if you only have one or two of those fruity mix-ins to contrast the mild spices and savory flavors.

Or try another non-boring chicken salad recipe. As with tuna, you can turn it into a sandwich, use it to top a green salad or simply scoop it up.

Why we like it: Beans and legumes are another great plant-based protein; when it comes to cost, dried beans will almost always cost less per serving than canned, but you may prefer to pay a bit more for the convenience of precooked.

If you want to cook them from dried, remember you'll need to soak them overnight first. This may seem basic, but hummus is always satisfying, and pretty healthy as long as you add lots of fresh veggies for dipping along with your pita. Homemade hummus is easy to make with canned chickpeas, but if you're fresh out, try making black bean hummus , white bean hummus or even red lentil hummus.

Have a little spinach or fresh herbs about to wilt? Throw them in too like in the spinach and basil hummus recipe above. In addition to dipping things in any of the above for a grown-up Lunchables sort of affair, you can use hummus as a sandwich or wrap spread, or even in place of mayo in egg salad.

Get cooking with pantry staples. Why we like it: Per serving, beans are much more cost effective than meat and depending on the type of meat, they may be healthier too. Combining beans with ground beef or turkey means you can use less meat and will still be plenty full. Garlic, red chiles, lemon, and fresh cilantro contribute to making it so—while still keeping it feeling clean.

If you can swing it, add a big pinch of asafetida for an extra savory note. Quick-cooking, budget-friendly, and pretty hard to screw up that dark meat is automatically juicier , chicken thighs are our default weeknight dinner—and this is our simplest way to prepare them.

These battered, oven-baked florets come out crackly before getting bathed in a sticky-sweet gochujang glaze. It means you have croutons. Ground turkey is a lean protein that, when simmered with white beans, seasonings, and chipotle chiles in adobo and topped with Greek yogurt, delivers major body and richness.

The key to stress-free stir-frying is in the prep work. Be sure to chop, slice, and grate everything before even thinking about turning on the stove. Once you do, it comes together in 15 minutes. A little bit of flour and butter, garlic, lemon juice, and capers , and you've got a super savory supper.

Say that three times fast. This cheap recipe leaves out the smoked pork or turkey, which is typical in the American South, and goes heavy on garlic for flavor. This all-star easy dinner recipe will work long after corn has gone out of season.

In the winter, just sub in shaved cauliflower or torn kale. This soup packs in all the ingredients that would make your doctor happy—lentils, sweet potatoes, leafy greens—but the fiery Thai green curry paste keeps things interesting.

This Haitian meal consists of sos pwa nwa, black bean sauce enriched with coconut milk, served alongside mayi moulen, a creamy cornmeal porridge flavored with garlic and herbs. Nothing is cozier. This family-friendly weeknight dinner takes a cue from Japanese grilled chicken meatballs called tsukune as well as the glossy, sweet-and-sour sauce that comes with them.

A classic Italian pesto , this is not. Spinach, cilantro, and miso come together for this uber-green sauce, which dresses, of course, springy ramen noodles.

In this brothy beans recipe, caramelizing fennel, shallots, and lemon builds a base layer that is sweet, tangy, and bright. Tinned sardines add protein and a briny flavor. A beloved Hong Kong dish with approximately one billion variations, this soup—which relies heavily on fridge and pantry staples—is meant to be a little sweet and a touch sharp.

Its silky texture comes from blended potatoes and broccoli stalks rather than heavy cream. Well, this is the salad version, with noodles in addition to pink radishes , orange carrots, purple cabbage, and green cucumbers.

One head of cabbage goes a long way. This recipe, where wedges are bathed in turmeric-accented coconut milk until meltingly tender and sweet, uses just half of one to feed four.

The soul of this recipe comes from the ginger and tamari marinade that gives crispy tofu a sweet and savory glaze. We like to turn leftover tofu into tacos, for some Japanese-Mexican fusion. Toss roasted sweet potato wedges in a sweet and nutty tahini dressing for this quick vegetarian weeknight dinner.

And no, it will not break the bank. This budget meal is about turning leftover side dishes into something totally new. Nearly any roasted vegetable or cooked grain could be worked into a frittata using this method.

This looks like something that took hours in a crockpot to make, but in reality, the black-eyed peas soak up the flavors of an onion- and tomato-based gravy in under 30 minutes.

Tuna salad deserves to be considered a dinner dish, not just a sandwich filling. Let the pan-fried chickpeas and red endive in this recipe convince you.

Pan-crisped and glazed sweet potatoes. With hearty, almost meaty lentils. And pistachios. Purchase lasagna noodles, mushrooms, mozzarella, and Parmesan.

The rest of the ingredients for this cheap dinner recipe are already in your fridge or pantry. One style of cheap meals: recipes chosen with their leftovers in mind , making two meals out of one. For example, these ground beef meatballs and their tomato sauce make for a great hoagie filling the next day.

If you've already got miso in your fridge and don't want to spend on something new, you could use that in this stew recipe instead of gochujang. I usually make enough extra sauce to pour over mashed potatoes.

With only six ingredients, these enchiladas are a breeze to make. Grab your favorite toppings—like cilantro, jalapeños, hot sauce, guacamole, or sour cream—if you want to dress it up once it comes out of the oven.

These "Sneaky" Sloppy Joes earn their name from the addition of onions, bell peppers, and budget-friendly lentils into the meaty mix.

and get those veggies in without a struggle," says Andie. Five ingredients pack a serious punch of flavor in this savory tater tot casserole. Cream of chicken soup melts into the browned beef and mixed vegetables creating a rich filling, while crispy and crunchy tots take the limelight.

There's nothing quite like a ready-to-eat Reuben. This classic hot sandwich features piles of steaming thinly sliced corned beef and sauerkraut with a mixture of melted Swiss and creamy Thousand Island. This wallet-conscious and healthy one-pot meal is also kid-friendly, according to StephR "This is incredibly easy, delicious, and spicy!

Taste-test approved by a very picky 3-year-old. Encrusted with a mayo-and-potato-chip outer layer, this skillet-toasted tuna melt gets extra crunch, perfectly complementing its gooey and melty cheese center.

Minced red onions, pickles, and Dijon lend a vibrance to the tuna mixture; while, sharp Irish cheddar brings it all together. When Chef John proclaims a dish is a hit, you'd better believe it.

Who doesn't love juicy, fall-off-the bone chicken in flavorful Greek spices? This four-ingredient red curry chicken is hassle-free and inexpensive to make, especially when compared to takeout prices.

If desired, substitute white rice for the rice vermicelli noodles, or garnish with cilantro, green onions, or red chile peppers. Simmered tomatoes, onions, garlic, peppers, and spices are topped with eggs that cook sunny-side-up in this traditional Tunisian and Israeli dish.

Serve with warm, crusty bread or pita for dipping into this mouthwatering mixture. This family-friendly casserole is guaranteed to please.
