Bargain Meal of the Week – Meijer

Thanks to our resident chef Stacie for this recipe. Check out her blog here for some great baking recipes. If you like this weekly feature please stop by her blog and say hi to her to keep this feature going! Thanks!

BLTs – TOTAL $4.37

Serving BLTs for supper is a great meal idea for the summer. Cooking the bacon is the most time consuming part, but can be done ahead of time (idea: serve the other ½ pkg for breakfast earlier in the week) and reheated in the microwave. Meijer has their Home Grown Vine Ripe Tomatoes for $1.28 a pound, but, if you’re like me and planted some tomato plants, hopefully one is ripe about the time you want to make these BLTs.

½ pkg Thorn Apple Valley Bacon – $1.25
8 slices Meijer Wheat Bread – $.49
1 lb Home Grown Vine Ripe Tomato – $1.28
½ head lettuce – $.60
½ Cantaloupe – $.75

Cook bacon, slice tomatoes, wash and cut up lettuce.
Toast bread and top with lettuce, tomato and bacon. Serve with cut up cantaloupe on the side.
Other sandwich ingredients: Mayo, cheese, avocado/guacamole if your budget allows 🙂

Each week we feature a meal for around $5 for 4 people which is comprised of buying ingredients from one store. Thanks to our resident chef, Stacie! For more such recipes, visit $5 Dollar Dinners.
