Do you ever wish you could buy something as all-purpose and healthy as “instant food?” The closest thing I’ve found to instant food is eggs—yup, Grade A large, sold by the dozen. And as fortune may have it, Brookshire’s has large eggs on sale this week!
Save money, save time, save calories, save stress—all with a dozen eggs. Really! There’s the obvious breakfast of scrambled eggs, but have you ever had breakfast for supper? An omelet or frittata or quiche is perfect for that, since you have a bit more time for cooking and prep work.
But how about taking those scrambled eggs and turning them into breakfast tortillas? You can make them in bulk, and save in the fridge for freezer and you’ll have a super-speedy breakfast choice. It’s cheaper and faster than stopping at a fast food restaurant or gas station—so that qualifies it as ‘instant food,’ in my book!
Other choices? Hard boil a handful of them and you’ll always have an instant snack or dinner in the fridge. Take the hard-boiled eggs and make deviled eggs or egg salad.
When you can get eggs for two dollars (or so) for a dozen, that comes out to only about 16 cents per egg. Now THAT’S a bargain, no matter how you cut it!
