Foodie Friday on a Budget: 10 Meals on $10

10 meals 10 bucks

Ten Meals on $10

On a budget? Here are 10 great meal ideas–each for about $10!

Splurge on a few ingredients; penny-pinch on others. Striking that balance makes it easy to be creative while feeding a family of four.

Roast Chicken Feast

The meal: Roast chicken makes the perfect special occasion meal. Use smaller broiler/fryers and roast potatoes along with the bird to save money. Carrots gussied up with butter and dill make an inexpensive side. Cost: about $7.

The splurge: A Tin Roof Sundae bar for dessert. Buy a pint of generic vanilla ice cream, a jar of fudge sauce, and snack-pack peanuts. Cost: about $6.


Mangia, Mangia

The meal: Less costly than spaghetti and meatballs, Spaghetti Carbonara calls for eggs, bacon, and Parmesan to flavor noodles. Serve with chopped iceberg salad. Cost: about $9.

The splurge: Garlic Bread. Cost: about $3.


Chili for Four

The meal: One-pot meals are crowd pleasers, not to mention easy on the cook. Elevate this bare bones recipe with the garnishes below and a side of baked cornbread. Cost: about $8.

The splurge: Shredded cheddar cheese, chopped scallions, cilantro, and sour cream. Cost: about $5.


Mac & Cheese Comfort

The meal: The ultimate in comfort food can be a little pricey with four cheeses and cream, so buy bulk dairy products to keep cost down. Serve with steamed broccoli. Cost: about $10.

The splurge: Chocolate Pudding. Cost: about $4.


Made in China

The meal: A veggie-rich stir-fry is so easy on the budget you’ll have money left over to add a few extras. Start the meal with Egg Drop Soup and finish with fresh fruit. Cost: about $9.

The splurge: Fresh pineapple. Cost: about $4.


Tomato Soup & Grilled Cheese

The meal: Tomato soup goes gourmet with the addition of roasted bell peppers and cream. Try different cheeses and breads to send your usual grilled cheese upscale. Cost: about $10.

The splurge: Fresh basil to stir in soup. Cost: about $2.


Quick Quiche

The meal: A store-bought piecrust keeps this broccoli and cheese quiche simple. Serve with a side of mixed salad greens. Cost: about $9.

The splurge: In-season fresh berries. Cost: about $5.


Stroganoff Savvy

The meal: Switching to hamburger instead of beef tips cuts down the price of Stroganoff without sacrificing flavor. Serve with steamed zucchini. Cost: about $10.

The splurge: Fresh parsley to garnish Stroganoff and zucchini. Cost: about $1.


The Ultimate Tuna Noodle

The meal: What budget meal repertoire would be complete without Tuna Noodle Casserole, particularly one with a crunchy potato chip topping? Serve with steamed broccoli florets. Cost: about $9.

The splurge: Homemade butterscotch brownies. $4.


Magnificent Mexican

The meal: This well-loved enchilada recipe is made to serve eight, so cut it in half, or make the full recipe and freeze leftovers. Cost: about $10.

The splurge: Sliced avocado to serve on the side. Cost: about $2.
