I followed the recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook. My kids love these muffins and I bake up a few batches at a time. These can be frozen and taken out of the freezer as needed. We eat them at breakfast, snack time, and on the go.
Feeding a family of 8 at a local fast food joint can easily run $100 for us. On Fridays our family fixes our favorite fast food items at home for a fraction of the price and so can you. Below we made Chili Cheese Turkey Dogs & Sweet Potato Fries with watermelon on the side. Here's another example of a dollar store meal that won't break the bank. Enjoy!
All items were purchased from a dollar store with the exception of the Hormel Chili that I purchased for $1 at a local grocery store. I already had cheese on hand and factored it into the overall price.
For $1.22 I was able to feed my family a meal that they like and I didn't break the bank. I always try to add fruit to the mix when we eat high calorie meals and this one was not exception.
Here's a video of my trip to Big Lots this week. Even though it's not a dollar store, they still have many dollar items. Let me know what you think.
I try to rotate breakfast options so that my kids don't get burned out on a particular meal. Fortunately for me, my kids love to eat breakfast anytime of the day so I am always looking for more variety. All items were purchased at a local dollar store.

Cream Cheese- $.15
Final Cost- $.90

I was really happy to find the Apple Cinnamon oatmeal that my kids like to eat at the $.99 store. The oatmeal had 6 packets, the plums were $.99lb and the o.j. was $.99 for 4 servings.
This basic breakfast of oatmeal, orange juice and plums is sure to stick to your ribs as the day goes by!
