Bargain Meal of the Week 2/12/09

It's time for another week of Bargain Meals! Erin over at $5 Dinners (a great read!) is hosting a gathering of bloggers all over the Internet, creating frugal meals straight from the sales circulars of their favorite stores. Check it out for even more inspiration. I contribute every week for the current sales at Publix, which run from Wednesday to the following Tuesday. Keep in mind that you do not need to purchase two of a product to get the buy one get one price. Publix marks down their products to half price for the BOGO deals.

Occasionally I like to serve breakfast for dinner. The kids love it! Here is a great casserole recipe that works well for either breakfast or dinner. Serve with eggs cooked however you prefer!
