When breakfast and lunch roll around I NEVER enjoyed trying to figure out what we are going to have. So several years ago I began using a two week meal rotation for breakfast and lunch”what’s for lunch”. Additionally, the kids don’t even ask me they just go and check the schedule. <<Smile>>It has been one of my best homemaking choices ever. So in the middle of helping my 6th grader work out some complicated math problem I do not have to waste any brain cells and it’s one of the kids favorite items on the rotation. To top it off they are super simple to make and any of my big kids can make them. They are also easy for you to alter according to your families eating preferences.
Ingredients for English Muffin Pizzas
- English Muffins from the .99 store
- Spaghetti or pizza sauce (canned or homemade) .89 at WalMart
- pepperoni (or a leftover hamburger crumbled) $2.29 Wal-Mart 1/4 of a pack was used
- shredded cheddar cheese or American Cheese Slices (according to your budget) (?? I buy a $12 bag of cheese at Sam’s and make about 12 so $1.20 or .89 for a pack of American Cheese)
Cost is 5.37 or .77 per person
Making English Muffin Pizzas
Cut your English Muffins in Half and place them on a cookie sheet
Put sauce on them
Add the cheese of your choice
Cut the pepperonis in 1/4 ths (or crumble your burger) and add to the top. (Yes, I cut my pepperonis into q/4’s because I am only going to use one pepperoni on the little pizza but I want the kids to get a taste of pepperoni with each bite, remember folks I’m frugal 🙂 )
Bake at 400 for about 15 minutes
I normally serve this with fruit if we have any. So what creative meals do you serve your family for lunch? Do you use a meal rotation like we do or do you wing it?
