With grocery prices going up I’m happy I know how to create frugal meals at home. On this blog post I will share some frugal meal ideas for your own frugal menus. Also, I believe homemade frugal meals are always healthier than eating out.
We love homemade chili! It is a great frugal meal idea that you can be creative with and choose from a variety of ingredients. Not to mention, if you add crackers/cornbread and cheese you will have all the food groups in one bowl.
Did somebody say homemade cornbread!? Cornbread is a wonderful side for many frugal meals. Dipping sweet cornbread in milk or pouring milk over it is a Appalachian treat 🙂.
Frugal meals are easy to put together and most can be created with what you already have on hand.
Ahh! My favorite Summertime meal (yes, I can make a meal out of fried green tomatoes 🙂). They always taste best if you grow your own tomatoes!
Yeah, I know that chicken liver is not everyone’s favorite. We only have it a few times a year because it is high in cholesterol. However, the iron is also very high in it too. I usually make gravy out of the drippings that is left in the pan. Then, we like to put it over rice.
So easy to make and this is a one pan meal. It looks expensive but it is not.
Another frugal favorite! Homemade goulash with sweet tea on the side. This is living! 🙂
I have discovered that using Bisquick as the pizza crust turns out wonderful! Of course, we all know this is a one pan meal that we all can get creative with.
I hope you enjoyed the frugal meal ideas. My niece, Bailey says a splurge every now and then keeps life enjoyable 🙂 *Note: Banana Splits can be homemade too😇
