Tomato Baked Eggs and Scalloped Sweet Potatoes -$2.40 recipe/$1.20 serving


Sometimes I just want to eat eggs for dinner! I love eggs, they are fast, easy, and you can prepare them a million different ways. Oven baked eggs have always been my favorite, this recipe makes two very large servings and is super filling. You can easily double or triple it for your family, and it’s an easy way to work a vegetarian meal into your dinner rotation. It also requires very little hands on time, which is a nice bonus!

1/2 tbsp. oregano ($0.05)

1 tsp. onion powder ($0.03)

3 tbsp. vegetable oil ($0.15)
