Five Dollar Dinner Challenge... #1

A friend introduced us to a new food challenge yesterday at Five Dollar Dinner Challenge. I was really impressed and since I have been creatively feeding my large family on a budget now for many years I felt right at home. So I decided to take her challenge and tonight WE give you...

(serves 4 people)
1 Large Can (26 oz) Cream of Tomato Soup ($1.57)
1 package Hot Dogs ($.88)
8 Slices of American Cheese ($.75)
1 Can Biscuits ($.45)
26 oz 2% Milk ($.60)


Make the pigs in the blanket by individually wrapping each hot dog with a slice of cheese and a flattened biscuit. Bake at 350* for 30 mins or until golden brown and not doughy inside.

Mix and heat soup as directed on the can. You can save even more here, by mixing the soup with water instead of milk. Our family just prefers a creamier soup...

Cost: $4.29 for entire meal

Note: For a fun and completely balanced meal you can serve with a side of Fruit Cocktail infused Jell-o for dessert at a total cost of $5.75.
