If you are hosting family for the upcoming holidays, you’re probably wondering what to feed everyone. I’ve got some ideas for healthy, inexpensive meals that will be easy on your pocketbook and simple to prepare.
Since holiday visits usually revolve around one big, extravagant meal, I’m going to use leftovers from the main meal and simple ingredients that we already have on hand to make a plan for the other meals.
One breakfast option is to throw together omelets using leftovers. I’ve used ham, turkey, broccoli, green onions, tomatoes, diced potatoes, and just about any leftover veggie in an omelet.
Quick breakfasts are a good way to start the day. I love to make these muffins which use all the staples we already gathered to prepare our main meal.
I love this recipe because it’s light and fluffy and full of flavor. If you’d like to come up with your own variation, start with this basic, whole grain muffin recipe and have fun finding your family’s favorite muffin!
Many healthy, inexpensive meals revolve around leftovers. My all-time favorite use of leftovers is to make shepherd’s pie as it just throws everything all together. Check out this easy and delicious recipe here!
How do you please your houseguests and keep you wallet and waistline in good shape? We’d love to hear your tips and tricks for healthy, inexpensive meals for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
