How about a sausage and milk gravy served over biscuits?

Sorry, but all my ideas are both expensive (relative to what's been suggested anyway), and labor intensive. Of course, mine are also so darn good, it doesn't matter!

Each of these recipes is for two, so you'll have to multiply the ingredients by 5 to feed 10 people.

Ingredients (for 2)
  • 4 small or two large corn or flour tortillas
  • 4 Tbs butter
  • 1 can of your favorite WHOLE beans.( No refried beans please. That's gross!)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 pound Mexican chorizo
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup of your favorite salsa
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup guacamole
Place beans in a saucepan on medium heat. Thoroughly cook chorizo in frying pan, then add to the beans, mix well, and keep warm on low heat. Melt 1Tbs butter in cast iron skillet or frying pan. Heat each tortilla in skillet until lightly brown on both sides, adding 1Tbs butter for each tortilla. Place two tortillas side by side on each plate. Spoon half of bean/chorizo mix over both tortillas. At the same time, place two eggs in a second frying pan with lid and keep lid on until eggs have a light white coating on yolks. Gently place eggs on top of beans, sprinkle 1/2 cup cheese on eggs, add 1/2 cup salsa on top of cheese, and garnish with sour cream and guacamole.

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbs sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 loaf Texas Toast style bread (regular sliced bread optional)
  • 8oz deli sliced Black Forest Ham
  • 8oz deli sliced oven roasted turkey breast
  • 1 pound Swiss cheese
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in medium bowl. Beat eggs and milk; stir into flour mixture until smooth. Let stand for 15 minutes.

Prepare two ham, turkey, and Swiss cheese sandwiches on Texas toast bread, or if using regular bread, a slice of bread, ham and Swiss, a slice of bread, turkey and Swiss and a third slice of bread to create a club style sandwich. Cut sandwich diagonally and secure each half with tooth picks or wooden skewers.

Dip each sandwich half in batter to coat well. Deep fry each sandwich section in 375F oil until golden brown, turning once if necessary. Drain on paper towels. Remove wooden picks. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve one sandwich half per plate with a big dollop of strawberry jam.

nothing beats good sausage gravy over biscuits. You can cook it the night before if desired. Re-heat it in a crock pot. Take some extra milk to thin it when you re-heat...

I'd say pancakes. Easily could be made night before. Doesn't take much time. Definitely not expensive. Easy and fast to heat it up in microwave oven.
You are what you eat.

How about strawberry/cream cheese blintzes? You can even buy ready made crepes in your regular grocery store so you won't have to make them from scratch.

My first thought was what Jeff mentioned, biscuits and sausage gravy. Relatively inexpensive, and very fast in prep time.

Along the same line is SOS. Could serve it over toast or biscuits.

Have a great time.
