I have a confession to make today. It is Fathers Day and we are going to visit the family for lunch today. I had baked beans for breakfast, then baked the quiche with dinner and will have the quiche for breakfast tomorrow. I will show the menu plan as having quiche for lunch though. Does that make sense? 🙂
Baked Beans on Toast
In a single serve pie dish, place one piece of bread buttered on both sides.
Dice onion, carrot and broccoli into very small pieces and either steam. boil or microwave until just tender.
Break one egg into a cup and add enough milk to bring the volume to 1/2 cup, mix well.
In a jug, stir well to combine the vegetables, egg mix and 1 slice of cheese ( crumbled ).
Pour over the bread and bake in a 180 degree oven for 15-20 minutes or until set.
Roast Chicken Dinner
Who would have guessed a roast dinner on just $25.00 food budget?
Chicken pieces roast well and are cheap so why not.
In a small ovenproof dish place a piece of chicken (I have a thigh) on top of a quartered carrot,
add a small potato which has been cut in half ( or quarters if you have a larger potato) Place a few dobs of butter on the chicken and potatoes. Roast in a 180 degree oven for around 30 mins until the chicken is cooked through and the potato tender.
While the chicken is roasting, dice 1/4 of an onion and fry off in a bit of butter, when the onions start changing colour and go translucent, add a dessert spoon of gravy powder and enough water to make a gravy to whatever constituency you fancy.
Serve up your roast chicken, carrot and potato along with a couple of steamed broccoli florets and spoon over the gravy. Enjoy!!
