Good Friday Frugality

Here is the Easter edition of a $2 meal just in time for a fishy Good Friday. I think a few squares of good quality dark chocolate would finish it off nicely. No, its not included in the $2 but so worth sacrificing.

Stuffed Potato

1 x 200 g potato cooked whole in the microwave
100g tin tuna, drained
1 tablespoon snipped chives
1 tablespoon of grated reduced fat cheddar cheese

Cut the top off the cooked potato and scoop out the flesh. Combine the flesh with the tuna and chives using a fork and then place mixture back into hollowed out potato. Top with grated cheese and potato lid and bak in moderate oven for 10 minutes until cheese is melted.
Serve with 150g steamed carrots and 100g cooked frozen peas.

Serves 1
Cost = $1.97

    Great that someone has a good word to say about the faithful old potato. Spring onions finely chopped make a tasty substitute for chives and try a mini-mini sprinkle of nutmeg over potato, and before cheese. When I buy spring onions I often PLANT half of them straight away for future use, I’ll never get through the whole bunch otherwise.
    Great yummy recipe Julie, might have it for brekkie!
