Every once in awhile, someone will ask me, as the author of Cheap Recipe Blog, what the cheapest recipes on my blog are. Valid question. And until now, I didn’t know the exact answer to that question.

So I decided to create a list of the cheapest of the cheap recipes on my blog.

These are the recipes that will get you through the tough times, whether you just lost your job, are a college student or are saving up for a big purchase. Or maybe the economy is kicking your butt, dealing with inflation, shrinkflation, and supply chain issues.

And the best part? You won’t sacrifice flavor or quality. Some of the recipes below are my favorite recipes of all time (apple oatcakes, I’m looking at you!)
