Budget-Friendly Meal Ideas for #SundaySupper

There are a lot of pressures on the budget at this time of year. Between the grocery bill, travel expenses and holiday gifts, the Benjamins get spread pretty thin. The Sunday Supper tastemakers are working diligently this week to develop budget-friendly meal ideas to ease our pain.

Soups and stews stretch ingredients further, and there are plenty of meal ideas to keep your food budget in balance. We are looking forward to making vegetarian One-Pot Creamy Lentils and Kale from The Wimpy Vegetarian and Easy Cheesy Egg Breakfast Bake with Potatoes and Bacon from Gate to Plate. The breakfast bake would be tasty at dinnertime, too.

Take part in this week’s giveaway and you can save some money, too. For a chance to win a Le Creuset roasting set and a 6-pound boneless prime rib from Certified Angus Beef® brand, post a photo on Instagram of your family around the table and tag it #SundaySupper and #RoastPerfect. Also, you’ll need to download the free Certified Angus Beef® brand #RoastPerfect app. Deadline is 7 p.m. ET Sunday, Nov. 22. More details.

Join us around the table at 7 p.m. ET Sunday on Twitter when we will share our favorite tips for economical cooking. Hosts this week are Shelby from Grumpy’s Honeybunch and Caroline from Caroline’s Cooking. Here are this week’s money-saving recipes:
