Default Re: Cheap, Healthy, Filling lunches for a large family?

How about taking ground turkey/chicken/ beef and making a meatloaf type loaf that you can slice and make into sandwiches?

I don't know if you do a type of Ramen noodles, but I used to do this with ham or with chicken or bacon......... you brown the meat and then sprinkle the the seasoning on the meat. You can add whatever handfuls of veggies at this point you want. Add the noodles.........top with thin cabbage (similar to coleslaw) add some water (about 1/2 of what you need for the amount of noodles you put in.You may have to add a little more, but some water will cook out of the cabbage) Add just a Tbs or so of sugar or syrup and cook for 20 min on low while they water is absorbed by the noodles.

It is a good casserole dish that I took to many suppers at church. It is cheap and tasty.


If you can get a good deal on Salmon, adding an egg, some bread crumbs, onion (you could put spinach leaves) add some hemp seeds, chia seeds, season to taste and pan fry similar to hamburgers......... It is a light meal.


For a side, we make a latkes. I have dehydrated potato flakes. I make a large bowl of mashed potatoes and add an egg or two depending on the amount and just brown them in patty sizes. It is cheaper than french fries and you can add just a little oil to the pan. (because it has either milk or chicken broth with onion or without (sometimes spinach leaves) I feel it has a little more food value.

Salads with cooked quinoa added to the salad,fruit and possibly nuts.
