Re: Please share your 1 all time hands down favorite thriftyish meal
Shephard's pie is my go-to. You can throw just about anything into it. Brown some meat, mix it with gravy or a condensed cream soup and some veggies (or not), top with mashed potatoes, brown in the oven for 40 mins or so. Voila.
Seriously, any casserole is a win for me, because I can beef it up with extras. Last night I made a chicken alfredo type of casserole, but amped it up with loads of broccoli and cauliflower, and totally snuck in some pinto beans, which meant I didn't have to use so much chicken.
