Meatloaf and mashed potatoes
Spaghetti & meatballs
Burgers and sw potato fries
Chili and cornbread

Pretty much any meal using ground meat and/or beans will be cheap depending on how many you're trying to feed.

A lot of the following involve only needing to pick up one or two extra ingredients for us:

 

 

tuna melt and/or chickpea-salad melt with oven fries

 

"nacho yummies" (tortillas topped with lots of can black beans, peppers, salsa, cheese, etc.  Huge pizza-size tray of it that we all share)

 

stir fry made with frozen veggie mix with rice, plus frozen egg rolls

 

fried egg sandwiches with cheese & spinach

 

cheesy omelets with (frozen) hash browns, big side of steamed broccoli
