    How many people do you want to feed for less than $10?

    Eggs are great for cheap quick meals.

    You could do a simple Chinese home-style steamed egg custard (savoury) with or without some pork mince, stir fry some green vegetables (like baby bok choy) and serve with steamed rice. Easily serves 2 - 3 for less than $10.

    A vegetable fritatta is also delicious.

    And if you like tripe, this is one of the cheapest proteins. Lots of delicious possibilities with tripe eg braise with tomato sauce.

    Chinese homestyle dishes are particularly good for making a small amount of protein go a long way. Steamed fish, stir-fry veg and steamed rice will serve 2 people for less than $10.

    Hope that helps.

    when I want a low-cost dinner, I often make biscuits. Another inexpensive dinner is pancakes or mac and cheese. See my hubs for good recipes for these foods.

    Even just a plate of brown rice makes a good nutritious supper. Much depends on whether you are feeding yourself or a family. A person living alone might be quite happy to get by with biscuits or something simple, whereas if you have to feed  a family, it becomes somewhat trickier.

    My favorite all time recipe is Mushroom Goulash. It tastes so good and is every bit as good the next day. Best of all it uses noodles, hamburger and mushroom soup. Items most people have on hand: … sy-Goulash

    Most of my recipes are under $10.00 and feeds 4. Chicken Quesidillas, and Rice are about $7.00. A half of a pork loin is around $7.00. and feeds 4. Slice your own pork chops, cook on the grill, add baked potato and green beans for sides, a little under $10.00. Usually, some left over for a quick lunch. Or cook in a crock pot, with a favorite sauce, serve on crusty buns, with chips, under $10.00, with left overs for lunch. Chicken and dumplings, with grilled cheese as a side, feeds 4, right around $6.00. … ep-by-step
