Egg Dinner Recipes that Save you Money

Egg recipes are an easy way to save money on family meals. Eggs are an inexpensive protein and can be cooked in so many ways. These egg dinner recipes are some of my family's favorites!

We use eggs for meals throughout the day, but they're especially handy as an easy family meal. If it's a busy day and we don't have anything planned, any of us can whip up a breakfast for dinner using eggs.

Egg recipes for frugal dinner ideas

Are eggs a frugal protein?

Eggs are a great alternative to meat when preparing family meals. Typically, you will spend much less on eggs per person than you would for beef, chicken or pork. Eggs are also an easy way to get your family eating vegetarian a few times per week, whether you do that to save money or for health reasons. Eggs are high in protein as well as vitamins and minerals.

Ways to prepare eggs

Our favorite way to use eggs through the day is hard boiled. With this easy-peel method, we have them on hand in the refrigerator for the kids to use for breakfast, lunch or snacks. My family also loves deviled eggs. That's our go-to for potlucks and parties, and they're always enjoyed!

When making eggs for dinner, we prefer scrambled with cheese, omelets or dinner egg casseroles. I like adding vegetables and savory flavors to make “breakfast” food feel more like dinner.

Egg dinner recipes

One of the easiest ways to use eggs for dinner recipes is in quiches and casseroles. Honestly, I have begun doubling up my quiche recipes and simply baking them in a casserole dish just to have enough servings for my big family. If you're cooking for 4 or less people, a glass pie plate is enough for a crustless quiche.
