Re: ~$5 Meal Ideas~

Truthfully, when it's time to cut down on food costs, we turn to breakfast-for-dinner.

homemade pancakes, yogurt and fruit is our basic cheap meal.

But our favourite is an egg bake.
1 package crescent rolls ( I only buy when on sale with coupon - or generic)
8 eggs
1-2 cups cheese
1 cup milk
cooked bulk sausage (but we use frozen spinach, defrosted & drained/squeezed)

Press crescent rolls into 9x13 pan, sealing perforations.
Whisk together eggs, milk, salt and pepper to taste.
Sprinkle spinach or sausage over crescent rolls.
Sprinkle cheese over top. Then pour egg & milk mixture overtop.
Bake @ 350 for about 25 minutes.

This also freezes well so I often double in case of an event or guests.
