Grilled cheese sandwich, hotdogs with leftover chili, omelette, salad...

If you're gonna make a Key Lime pie, you have to use real Key Limes!

Made some tinned cannellini beans on toast yesterday. Fried some onion with a but of curry, salt and pepper and just added the drained beans. It was much better that canned baked beans!

There are over 300 ways of combining canned tuna, bits of left over roast chicken, steamed rice, tomato sauce and eggs, though not necessarily all at once, and I have tried 287 of them.

burger gravy over toast, potato, bread
chili/stew w/ saltines
put slivered pork through canned cannelinis & season well
omelettes/scrambled egg w/ a few veggies & then a type of potato as a sidedish
pasta/gnocci- very economical, & meatsauce/meatballs can be, too
soups made w/ dried legumes (split pea, lentil; etc.)
tuna cakes
swiss steak

Sloppy Joes

Poor Man's Stroganoff - Brown ground beef and onions (and celery if desired), drain, add can of mushroom soup, sour cream, season as desired (I like garlic and basil). Serve over noodles or rice. Works with leftover chicken too - just saute the veggies in butter or olive oil.

How fast and how cheap? A fast breakfast around here means whisk an egg, toss it in a frying pan, and when I turn it, throw a flour tortilla on top. Ten seconds, flip the whole thing out of the pan, spread some salsa on the egg and roll it up, folding one end in in the process.

My partner and I are very different, his cheap easy no fuss meal would be instant noodle especially mie goreng witha fried egg.
I on the other hand would die or a cheese and Vegemite(A yeast base spread from Australia, that's not for everyone) toast! Night or day! Super cheap! Nice and easy spread vegemite on bread, add slice cheese put another slice of bread on top and in the cafe press it goes for about 2 mins.

Sautéed mushrooms on toast.

If I happen to have some pesto and already cooked pasta, then that is about as quick and easy as it comes as well as tasty and cheap.
