Re: The "~$5 Meal Ideas~" thread...
I don't remember if I posted this.
1lb ground meat ($1.78)
5-6 potatoes ($2.50 a bag?)
Can of corn (.33)
Shredded cheese (we use either pepper jack or cheddar) ($2)
Packet of Brown gravy (.25)
Just make mashed potatoes, brown the ground meat. Pour a can of corn over the potatoes, add the meat and then cheese and mix it all up till the cheese melts (or you can pop it in the oven and just melt the cheese if you don't want to mix it). Add brown gravy (I do it on an individual basis).
You could also make a homemade verison of the KFC chicken bowls by added popcorn chicken instead of groundmeat, I haven't but it would be yummy!
