Odd, cheap combinations that work - post yours here

An interesting breakfast. Try this:

 

Two Weetabix bricks (or Ruskets)

 

Four eggs

 

Crunch the weetabix to a powder. Add to beaten eggs. Mix. Fry in a little oil with a pinch of pepper or spice of your choice.

Serve with tea or coffee.

 

 

This wheaty scrambled egg is a filling breakfast. It has the right combination of protein, fat and carbs. If it is too dry for you, serve with grilled tomatoes.

An alternative sandwich is the Brussels Sprouts and Grated cheese sandwich. The sprouts have to be boiled very soft first.

I'll leave that for you to devise the exact proportions yourselves but believe me it tastes good.

 

____________________________________

 

Bubble and squeak - the old way.

 

Great for leftovers. Take all the vegetables and mashed potatoes that you didn't serve at dinner and scrape them out of the bottom of the saucepan (the ideal combo is mashed potato with cabbage). Squash them and mould them into blocks or thick pancakes. Fry on all sides until browned.

 

Cheap but tasty. Waste not, want not!

 

_____________________________________

 

Pie and peas - with a pork pie.

 

Depending on the size of the pie, microwave for two to three minutes or oven bake for around ten to fifteen minutes. The hot pie will probably split. Serve with hot mushy peas and gravy. Stir plenty of vinegar into the peas whilst heating up. Serve with or without fluffy mashed potato. Sprinkle lots of ground white pepper on top.

 

A nice, filling hot snack.

Hi Reninitin,

That sounds yummy. Will try. Now I like to make a `mock fish.`

Chopped onion, Grated potato with juice squeezed out, beaten egg, salt & pepper, - mix well & roll into balls coated with bread crumbs. Cook till golden brown.

You could also add real fish chopped, or vegies etc.

Marilyn.

try a sauce you like. I'm not a fan of smoke flavors either. I like honey glaze sauces and others. I didn't have bread and only a little chopped brisquet so i heated it in jack daniels honey glaze and put it on baked potatoes.. Its a family favorite now.

A tasty sandwich spread: 

Take a can of tuna, drain place in bowl and add 

one or two  grated carrots and a spoonful or so  Helmann's mayo, and pepper to taste. 

The spread tastes even better after in the fridge a couple of hours, but tastes also good to use right away.

Now I like rice and cashews. ;)

 

Now one of my favorite sandwiches is   Tomato and onion (with a dab of mustard of course).  Sometimes I'll add some cheddar cheese.
