Side dish from Shopping Trip


Okay, so that was a long title! I thought I'd share a side dish that I made for dinner tonight and fill you in on how much it cost!

Green Bean Casserole:
3/4 cup milk ($0.17)
1 can Campbell's Cream of Mushroom soup (after coupon $0.29)
2 cans of Del Monte green beans ($0.98)
1 - 2.3oz package (approx. 1 1/3cups) of French's Fried Onions (after coupon $1)

In 1.5qt casserole dish, Mix milk and soup, add in a little black pepper, add green beans (drained), add 2/3 cup fried onions. Bake at 350F for 30 minutes. Stir and add remaining 2/3cup fried onions.

Total cost = $2.44 (approx. 6-8 servings; $0.41/serving)

We paired this with tilapia and crescent rolls. Tilapia = $0.60/serving and crescent rolls = $0.60 (whole can)

Our total dinner (2 servings) = $2.62

Great savings for us! Good luck on creating your own meals on the cheap!
