Cheap as Chips Breakfast Ideas

1.  Porridge

Not the little-flavoured packets – they cost a fortune and are full of things your body just doesn’t need – I’m talking about the big unflavoured flakes that take a while to cook on the stove.  Do you know it only takes four minutes to cook two serves in the microwave?  Best of all – it is so cheap.

I picked up a large box of Uncle Toby’s Traditional Oats at IGA for $4.50.  I like using oats in cooking, it’s great to place them in the bottom of some pantyhose in the kids’ bath if they have a skin complaint – it’s great mixed with a bit of water as a facemask – so many uses – and so good for you! If you can get porridge on sale it can cost you as little as 13 cents per serve!!!

2.  Homemade Crumpets

OMG!!! I love homemade crumpets–they are so deliciously moreish–this is more of a Sunday morning thing to make because it does take time–but the results will be highly worthwhile!  Best of all, it is cheap to make with simple ingredients. Click here for my recipe!

Homemade Crumpets can be served traditionally with slatherings of butter and jam – or enjoyed as a savoury snack – topped with baked beans and cheese!

3.  Fruit Smoothies

Get out your blender – even the kids will love this one!  Put 1/2 cup of your favourite fruit in the blender (bananas, when they aren’t so expensive, are great, but you can try peaches, apricots or some frozen berries if they are cheap enough) – 1/2 cup of yogurt (plain or flavoured), a cup of skim milk, an ice cube or two – and off you go.  It’s yummy and good for you! Not just for breakfast either!

Plan out a variety of smoothies for the whole week and try these babies out!

4.  Homemade Bulk Muffins

Muffins are terrific – I make them all the time at home.  If I have any fruit that is starting to look manky or some leftover veggies, they all get incorporated into muffins and frozen for a quick breakfast or even to pop into school lunches!
