Bargain Meal of the Week


Each week, I post a Bargain Meal idea, based on our local New Seasons Market ad of the week. For Easter week, they are offering plenty of delicious brunch options in their ad; perfect for using up leftovers from Easter dinner, or for a festive way to celebrate during the weekend!

Brunch-style meals also make simple “breakfast-for-dinner” meals. This week’s frugal meal of Migas with a side of fruit makes a quick and delicious alternative to the intensive time & ingredient lists of the traditional quiche!

I substituted bacon, which is on sale, instead of the ham, but if you have some leftover Easter ham, feel free to use that instead! I also like to snip off some of my homegrown potted chives to use in recipes like this: fresh & free!  Sale items are marked in red.
