Omelets

Eggs are tantalizing not only for their taste, but their pricing as well. They're simply one of the cheapest and most versatile groceries around! You can usually find a dozen eggs for $2 or less, which breaks down to less than 17 cents per egg! Omelets, in particular, are easy to whip up and can produce a well-rounded meal from practically nothing. Similar to quesadillas, recipes like this Basil Omelet can include pretty much any add-in you have a hankering for, from veggies to meats. Of course, fresh veggies can get pretty pricey, so you might want to pick one or two of your in-season favorites to incorporate into the meal, like tomatoes and onions.
