Jan 29: Baked Beans on Toast with Fried Egg; Mushroom and Red Wine Meatloaf


Since we still had some Boston Baked Beans left, we heated it, served on toast and topped with a Fried Egg.

  • Dave’s Killer Bread is 33c per serve
  • The Baked Beans have already been accounted for
  • A Pastured Egg is 51c.

It was pretty good for 84c per serve.


When you dinner guest is a “meat and potatoes” kind of guy, what better than a Meatloaf and Mashed Potatoes with Gravy! We served ourselves some Sugar Snap Peas and reverted to our tried and true Mushroom and Red Wine Meatloaf.

  • The dry aged ground beef was $20.16 or $5.04 per serve
  • Sliced portobello mushrooms were $2.49 or 63 per serve
  • Onions and garlic add 20c per serve
  • Two large eggs are $1.02 or 25c per serve
  • The butter is $3.99 per block, and we used about 3/8 for four serves, or 38c per serve
  • Red wine adds $1.00 or 25c per serve
  • Add 20c for Worcestershire sauce and other spices per serve
  • Gravy was $1.99 or 67c per serve
  • The Potatoes were $3.57 and we only used half, or 60c per serve
  • Sugar Snap Peas were $3.47 and we used half, or 87c per serve
  • The Sour Cream was 99c and we used ΒΌ or 13c per serve.

The Meatloaf was very successful. The ‘secret’ to this meatloaf is to chop onion and mushroom very finely, so they don’t break the texture of the meatloaf. A good meal for $9.22 per serve.
