I tried a crockpot breakfast bake. It was overcooked because I did not get up to turn it off on time...or to turn it on later. I need to use a timer I suppose. Anyway, it's still edible, but not as palatable.
eggs (free), milk (powdered), leftover ham from last night(already accounted for last night), shredded cheese (1 1/2 cups) .80
While we do have some eggs to come from our chickens, we have a hatchery who gives us their double yolk eggs as they do not hatch well. The cheese we buy from Sam's Club in bulk at a little over $2 a pound.
This is our main buy at Sam's Club! This saving alone pays for our membership.
***Time saver- I mixed the sauce and dough for pizza tonight. I heated the oven once and baked both lunch and the pizzas for tonight at the same time. There will also be enough pizza left over for tomorrow's lunch.
Pizza dough is so inexpensive to make! Buy your flour while it is at least under .40 a pound. Sam's Club currently sells all purpose at .32/ pound for a 25 pound bag. Our local IGA food store has flour on sale for $1.99 for 5 pound bag. Yeast is best bought at Sam's Club or Costco where you can buy them in 1 pound packages, double packed to make 2 pounds. You can freeze yeast and it lasts this way practically forever.
It's sooo much cheaper than buying those little packets. Pizza dough is so easy to make! It can be frozen for future meals as well. With buying cheese in bulk, 5 pound bags, it is good to measure out how much you're using ahead of time so you don't go crazy with it! I measure out 2 1/2 pounds(9 cups) in a bowl.
Buy cans of pasta sauce for $1 or less or make your own with tomato paste, diluted with water, add sugar, salt and italian seasonings.
