Oct 14: Pinto Bean & Andouille Stew on Fry Bread with Egg; Bratwurst with Apple Bacon Slaw


Since we already had the Pinto Bean and ‘Andouille sausage’ made (although with Chorizo) we decided to do some ‘fry bread’ (toast in the panini press) and top with an egg.

  • The pinto bean chili is $1.85 for a full serve, but we had a bit over half a serve each, or $1.11 per serve.
  • The bread is 16c a slice
  • A pastured egg is 50c
  • Add 30c for butter.

This version of the Pinto bean stew is pretty good. On toast with an egg it’s great for $2.07 per serve.


We thought we’d use all the slaw on Saturday night, but with left overs, we rethought our plan and defrosted some Trader Joe’s Bavarian Bratwurst and grilled them to serve with the salad.

  • The bratwurst are $3.49 for the pack, or $1.75 per serve
  • The salad is $1.19 per serve.

A pretty good meal for $2.94 per serve.
