E is for Egg Burrito (Healthy Style)

Looking for something filling, delicious, and good for you? Look no further!

I discovered this recipe during my second pregnancy and have been making it ever since. If I’m making the recipe for just me (which is often the case), I will make a recipe for four and just add the eggs when ever I’m in the mood for eggs throughout the week. Making it for more than one person is simple too, AND, of course, it’s budget-friendly!

E is for Egg-in-a-hole

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe…

I use it for lunch quite often for my girls, and you can cut any shape you want out of the bread so I mix it up and make “Egg-in-a-star”… “Egg-in-a-flower”… “Egg-in-a-heart”… You get the idea πŸ™‚

Here’s everything you need for one serving:

1 slice of bread (any kind will do), 1 egg (not beaten), butter for greasing the pan, a cookie cutter, and salt & pepper.

Let’s just start off with the cost… only 43 cents for 1 serving! WOOHOO! Sold.

E is for Easy Quiche

Easy, DELICIOUS quiche that is… πŸ™‚

I thought about titling this post “E is for Egg Quiche”, but a quiche by definition is made with eggs, so I decided the “egg” part was obvious.

This recipe is my own. I only had one meat, one cheese and one type of herb on hand so that is what was added. I read through over 50 quiche recipes to see how other people made their quiche (ratios, ingredients, etc.) They ranged from fairly simple and a few ingredients to very involved and heavy with ingredients. Since I was going for a budget-friendly recipe, I needed something simple with just a few ingredients. This made TWO meals for my little family, but we are about the equivalent of 3 people (almost). You may easily be able to finish it off in one sitting! I would say it feeds four adults. Possibly more if it is served with a salad and/ or fruit on the side.

I love to get my stomach rumbling and my mouth watering to jump start menu planning, so here’s the shot of the final product:

So eggy…. so creamy… a little crunch from that crust on top… DELICIOUS

Is your mouth watering?? If not, it will be when you see how easy this is to make…

D is for Dorito-Baked Mashed Potatoes

The last of the Dorito recipes…

IMG_7919

Even if you are NOT a Doritos fan, you MUST try these mashed potatoes! The secret ingredient is actually the cheese I use, though the Doritos were a nice touch (easily removed if you don’t want to use them!) My recipe serves 5-8 people and you can make it ahead of time because you finish them off in the oven!

The potatoes are simple and delicious! They are great for bringing to a get-together as you can make them up to 6 hours ahead and then just bake them for 18 to 20 minutes wherever you’re serving them. No re-heating your mashed potatoes or trying to keep them hot in transit!

Here’s the full recipe:Β Dorito-Topped Mashed Potatoes
