Did anyone post rice and eggs? I do this often because my girls love it, and so do we. You just take some eggs, let's say four of them, mix them with a fork in a bowl, add 2 or 3 cups of cooked rice and a couple TBS of soy sauce to taste, then cook the mixture in some butter until cooked. Salt and pepper to taste. I've added frozen veggies (cooked), diced fresh zucchini, fresh spinach or chard, etc. Whatever your kids will eat, you can add it, or just do it plain. This is a true under $2 meal!
My favorite cheap recipe is my version of a restaurant meal I LOVE!
1 can black beans (spiced with taco seasonings, onion and garlic to taste)
2 plum tomatoes, sliced
2 slices mozzarella cheese
4 eggs cooked over easy
dollop of sour cream
Cook the beans however you like them seasoned. I like this dish with a mexican flavor, so I use cumin, garlic, onion (taco seasoning, essentially). Spoon the beans onto a plate with a slotted spoon. put a few slices of tomatoes on the beans, and the mozzarella cheese on the tomatoes. Cook the eggs either sunny side up or over easy if you don't love runny eggs. Pile them on top on the beans/tomatoes/cheese, and put it all under the broiler for a couple mins, until the egg firms up and the cheese is melty. Serve with a dollop of sour cream and a hearty side of toast.
YUM!!!! I make this dish often for guests, for any meal they happen to be around for.
Well tonight I made an incredible meal on the cheap!
Left over rice
2 cups torn up spinich (could easily use frozen)
Saute 2 cloves of garlic in 2 tbsp butter (or olive oil)
add 2 tbsp flour to make roux
add 1/4 cup parmasan cheese (I used the cheepy stuff)
throw in 1/2 cup milk, allow to thicken, add spinich, allow to wilt, add rice and heat through.
Salt and pepper to taste.
You could add left over chicken, shrimp... pretty much anything! We just had it as is, and it was SO yummy.
