How to Save Money on Food Bills


When our money supply is low, hopefully there is no shortage of leftovers. If it's still good, don't toss it out. For example, if bread is a bit dry, it can still be used to make french toast.

Here we will learn about easy ways to save money using leftovers to reduce our food bills. Actually, there are some real good recipes for using leftovers.

Things You'll Need:

  • A little imagination in the kitchen.


Leftover Bread – Use slices for french toast. Use dry crumbs for brown betty, croquettes, and fried chops. Use soft crumbs for meat loaf and stuffings.

Leftover Cooked or Canned Fruits – Use for fruit cups, fruit sauces, jellied fruit, quick breads, shortcake, upside down cake, and yeast breads.

Leftover Cooked Meats, Poultry, or Fish – Use in casserole dishes, hash, meat patties, meat pies, salads, sandwiches, and stuffed vegetables.

Leftover Egg Yolks – Use in cakes, cornstarch pudding, custard or sauce, pie fillings, salad dressing, and scrambled eggs.

Egg Whites – Use in custard, fruit whip, meringue, and soufflés.

These are just a few examples of how you might save money on food bills by using leftovers creatively. Do you have some innovative ways to use leftovers to make inviting meals? Please take a moment to leave a comment, and share your ideas with others.
