15 Budget Friendly Family Recipes

Who doesn’t love a few new ideas for budget friendly family recipes? We all get into a rut, cooking the same few things week after week, often out of habit and routine rather than the fact that our families love the recipes. Am I right?

Unless, of course, you’re one of those really great meal planners that spends time over the weekend sifting through cookbooks and recipe sites to craft the perfect weeknight menu…posted on the kitchen chalkboard.

That’s not me. But, I am kinda jealous of those menu chalkboards and of meal planning. True story.

I do try and throw new recipes into the mix at least once a week. Sometimes new ideas stem from what I’ve received in my Hometown Harvest bag – the small fixed bag shows up with a variety of produce, none of which I’ve selected myself. It’s fun! Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon was an example of this from last week. YUM!

Here’s a treat for today to get your weekly meal routine changed up! It’s a recipe round up of 15 budget friendly family recipes, pulled together by fellow blogger Angela from WriterMom’s Blog. My Baked Ziti is #12, but there are 14 other great recipes to check out too!
