I also appreciate cheap recipes as we are still getting several dz a week. I boil water for ramen and quickly add eggs, beat them well and then continue making the ramen noodles. I also add veggies sometimes. My kids really like it when I scramble a bunch of eggs and make them breakfast burritos. i just add left over meat if we have it and sometimes gr. pepper, maybe cheese and or rice and roll them into flour tortillas.
These also freeze well in wax paper and then in zip lock freezer bags for quick meals. Dh likes Denver sandwiches which are 2 slices of toast with miracle whip on each slice. Mix diced bell pepper, onion and bacon. Fry this and drain oil off of it. Set aside. Beat up a bunch of eggs, add the above mixture. Put by ladelful onto a hot pan and cook. flip and the when done place on the toast with a tomato slice and serve. They are good but I leave out the onion on mine.
I am also from Miami (Florida), have one 3year old ds and 1 on the way (another boy) and also receive WIC. I try and make a quiche at least 2-3 times a month. This is great to use up WIC eggs and Cheese and any leftover items you may have, I generally use the formula Amy D describes in the Tightwad Gazzette. I make the rice crust ahe describes if I have leftover rice. (just add an egg and some cheese and form it in the pie pan and bake at 425 til firm) Now for the quiche, put about 1 cup leftover veggies in the bottom (my favorite is some spinach if I don’t have any leftover veggies to use).
Next I add any leftover meat I may have (ham, bacon etc) Now sprinkle shredded cheese all over. Now mix up 2 eggs, 2/3 cup dry milk powder and 1 cup broth along with salt and pepper. Pour this mixture over cheese and veggie mixture and bake for 45 minutes at 350. The combinations are endless. Here are other ways I got through eggs: I also use eggs in my tuna salad, make breakfast muffins often, pancakes, and breakfast burritos to freeze (scrambled eggs, potatoes, sausage & cheese in a tortilla). These recipes help me save money and pay cash advances on time.
