I love breakfast for so many reasons, but especially because it’s always reliably cheap to make. No matter how tight my finances, I can always count on an affordable carton of eggs or a giant, $3 caninster of oats to help me make something tasty, healthy, and satisfying enough to get me through my morning.
In fact, most classic breakfast ingredients are similarly inexpensive, which means it’s entirely possible to make a cheap morning meal on the regular. Believe it or not, anything from frittatas to chilaquiles can be made at home for less than $2 per serving, so you can save your money for fancier meals and still eat something totally amazing before noon.
Instead of figuring out the math yourself, make one of these 15 recipes, all of which will cost you less than $2 per serving. (Either the blogger calculated and provided this information, or we did the math using prices from Peapod.) In addition to being tasty and cheap, they’re filled with the fiber, protein, and healthy carbs you need to conquer your day. So they’re good for your wallet and even better for your body.
