On the Cheap - Turkey Burgers

We had turkey burgers and sweet potato oven "fries" last night to celebrate Nick's momentous accomplishment. They are one of Nick's favorites.

I'm kidding, they are on the weekly rotation because the meal is one of Nick's favorites.

Anyway, you can find 93% lean turkey burger in a pound roll in the meat section at Walmart for about $2. You can also find it in a roll in the freezer section at Kroger. It goes on sale periodically for about 3 for $5 there. You could pay up to 6 bucks a pound for it in the fresh section. That stuff is brought frozen and thawed out for you at the store anyway. Save your money and buy it in the freezer section.

The break down of the meal (not including trivial amounts of salt, pam, etc.):
sweet potatoes $2
turkey burger $1.67
buns (1/2 of package, froze the rest) $.90
ketchup $.25
broccoli $2.50 (fresh vegetables are always the killer!)

$7.32 total/3 people or $2.44 per person (This probably could be stretched to 4 if you had a normal husband or $1.83 per person. )

I love your blog! I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one to flash pictures of my kids on the web. Yours are very cute, by the way!

I'll have to try the sweet potato oven fries, they look delicious. Not sure if my crew would eat the turkey burgers though.

Happy Holidays!
