Budget recipe: savory bread dish

Must Try

I had recently taken bread out of the freezer for breakfast and lunch on the weekend. But plans changed and I was left with a bag of bread after the weekend. I thought you could also make a nice main course with it.

I had already made a sweet bread pudding with cinnamon and apple. But this ham and spinach recipe proves that you can also make tasty savory bread dishes. This dish is therefore ideal for using up old bread or other leftovers from the fridge. For example, replace the ham with leftover fried chicken or minced meat. Or add a bell pepper instead of the tomatoes. You can also flavor the egg mixture with a tablespoon of pesto instead of a teaspoon of mustard.

The recipes I make for this budget series don’t cost more than 2 euros per person. They contain as many fresh ingredients as possible and are a complete meal. The prices for the recipes are usually based on those of the Jumbo and AH. You can probably make the recipes even cheaper through certain offers or, for example, the greengrocer.

The total costs of this recipe are € 5.61 : 3 = € 1.87 pp

Drain the spinach mixture in a colander or sieve and squeeze out most of the moisture. Cut the bread into quarters (or smaller). Beat the eggs with the milk and mustard and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Grease a baking dish with butter or oil.
