*Ham, egg, cheese souflee – 95¢

2024 Update

This is a quickie made in the microwave.

Here’s a vegetarian version made for a little more (remember, you’re cutting the 50¢ ham cost out). Dilute your OJ with half water to cut down on sugar, calories and costs. 

Eggs will cost about 10¢ to 15¢ each depending on where you live.

Ham is expensive. This package of ham (pictured) normally costs $13 at Kroger. I saw three large packs on sale for $3 each and bought them, put one-third of each pack into a sandwich bag and put them in the freezer. You can get Smithfield ham steaks BOGO at Publix for 50¢ for a 2-oz. serving.

Cheap ham
Wait for sales to save big on groceries.

I got $30 worth of free ham! At this price, it came down to 5¢ a slice for the ham instead of 20¢ each.

A few weeks later, I saw 20 lb. hams – regularly $60 each – on sale at Kroger for $8 each! I cut one up, put into freezer bags, and how have affordable ham for months.

I priced the ham at 50¢ for this dish.

I get one to two coupons for cheese from Kroger every month.

If you buy bread from the day-old (more like several-day-old) rack, it’s 3¢ a slice.

Milk at $2.99 a gallon in 19¢ for an 8 oz. glass.
