$5 Dinner: Quiche and Salad

If you saw May 14, 2012 TV segment this week, you heard me talk about the eggs I got for 73¢/ dozen at Giant Eagle with this SavingStar eCoupon. I also snagged some Betty Crocker Suddenly Salad for $1.25/ box with this SavingStar eCoupon. Here’s a meal I made with these deals: Quiche, green salad, and basil pesto pasta salad. It was super cheap, easy, and a bit hit with everyone (except my one year old…).




8 eggs

1/3 c. milk

sauteed green peppers and onions

1/4 c. mozzarella cheese

salt and pepper to taste

1/2 t. garlic powder

1/4 t. oregano

pie crust (I had one left in my freezer)


Spray pie pan, place pie crust in it, and set aside.

In a medium bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, and spices. Add vegetables and cheese and stir until combined.

Pour mixture into pie crust.

Cover edges with aluminum foil and bake at 425 degrees (or package instructions) for 30 minutes.

Cost Breakdown:

Quiche: eggs- 49¢, cheese- about 13¢ (got the whole package for $1), vegetables- about 46¢, crust- $1, other ingredients- negligible

Pasta salad: $1.25

Green salad: I got the lettuce for free at Giant Eagle w/ a coupon last week. Other ingredients: about 33¢

Total for the meal: less than $4- TOTAL!
