Alright, the need to be creative and frugal was a must this morning. The fridge and pantry were pretty bare and I didn’t get a pay check until this afternoon. I had lots of odds and ends going on and I was trying to pull all of them together for a somewhat decent meal. It ended up being a combination of a sweet potato, an avocado and some eggs. Put it together and you get..sweet potato toast topped with diced avocado and a scrambled egg. Yes, yes I know it’s oh so fancy. I must say this though; don’t knock it until you try it.
Overall Cost: $2.50
-1 small sweet potato (.70 cents)
-1 small avocado (.80 cents)
-2 eggs ($1.00)
1. Slice sweet potato into even, medium sized slices
2. Put the slices through the toaster 2 or 3 times depending on your preference
3. While the sweet potatoes are toasting, slice/dice the avocado and scramble the eggs
4. Layer it all together and enjoy!
One word: yum. I would have never thought of a sweet potato as a substitute for bread, but I must say it will be done more often. Sweet potatoes are a great way to pack in fiber and other essential nutrients into a meal! Top that with eggs and avocado and you’ll be full with energy for the morning. For the future, I am going to be experimenting with other toppings like peanut butter, fruit and more! Until then.
