Frugal Breakfast Recipes

Breakfast Recipes

Cheese Danish
My family and I love a good danish, but they are very costly to buy from the store. So I came up with this simple and frugal way to make them at home. Enjoy!

2 tubes refrigerated bread sticks (on sale for $.50 each)
1 8oz. package of cream cheese (store brand @ $.99)
1/4 c. powdered sugar (aproximatly $.05)
1/2 tsp. lemon juice (pennies)

Frosting
1/2 c. powdered sugar (aprox. $.10)
1-2 tsp. milk (pennies)

Seperate bread sticks but do not uncoil, place on ungreased cookie sheet. With your thumb make an indention into the tops of each coil. In a bowl mix cheese, sugar and lemon juice until smooth. Place about 1 tbs. of cheese mix into indentions. Bake at 400 for 15-20 min. Meanwhile combine remaining sugar and milk until smooth. Drizzle frosting over warm danish. Yields 1 dozen. At about $.16 per danish you can't lose.

Peanut Butter Granola
cost - aproximately $4.12 for all ingredients. Fills a 1 Gallon (recycled) Pickle Jar.

1 1/2 cups Crunchy Peanut Butter. (I bought Home Harvest - 1.19 on sale)
1 cup brown sugar (.20, whole bag costs about .69)
1 can frozen concentrated apple juice. (.99)
10 cups of instant rolled oats. (Also Home Harvest brand. 1.39)
1/2 cup of oil. (I use Safflower oil, has vitamin E added to it. cost of 1/2 c. aprox .35)

Mix the apple juice, peanut butter and oil in one container. Mix the oats and brown sugar in another container, until brown sugar is mixed in well. Add in the liquid ingredients and mix well with a spoon until it gets too thick, then I use my hands to mix, like a cookie dough. The granola mixture will be thick.

Spread on two cookie sheets, making sure to keep the Granola no more than an inch thick on the pan. Toast the Granola at 225 to 250 in the oven for an hour or so. You want it lightly toasted, not dark brown. You will probably have to turn the granola once during cooking. Keep an eye on it, it might not take the full hour. If you are careful turning you will have both tiny flakes and lumps (the lumps are good for snacking, and the tiny flakes are good for breakfast cereal with milk.) Let the Granola cool and put it in an airtight container.

If you wish to add fruit or nuts to this you may, but it makes the cost go up. I use the Crunchy Peanut Butter because it has small pieces of peanuts already in it.
