The Twenty-Five Cent Breakfast

Hard to believe, I know, but twenty-five cents may be more than the actual cost.  The eggs were $.99 a dozen (so sixteen cents for two); a couple of leftover Tater Tots, and the last two inches of a loaf of home-baked sourdough bread, with a bit o’ butter, rounded out the meal.

I cooked this up in about three minutes, tops, since the pan was already hot from my having fixed DH’s breakfast of two blueberry pancakes, a strip of bacon, and the other two Tater Tots.

In thinking about it, his breakfast was probably in the same fiscal ballpark as mine, maybe even less because he didn’t have the eggs.  But the way bacon has soared in price lately, it probably worked out to about the same amount.

So, even if I am off by 100%, then we both feasted on a delicious, nourishing breakfast for less than a buck.

For those of you who care about herbs and spices, that is Penzey’s “Mural of Flavor” on the eggs.  No salt needed – it was flavorful and delicious.
