This was breakfast this morning, Cinnamon Toast, very scrummy and moreish. I have been thinking about breakfasts, and Cinnamon Toast sprang to mind. Great for snacks and hollow leg filling too.
Cinnamon toast is a real classic breakfast or snack. It’s usually made with milk and egg. But we don’t usually have enough funds for either of those on a Thrifty Lesley Meal Plan. So I experimented using just bread, oil, sugar and cinnamon.
How To Make Cinnamon Toast
for each person, drizzle a tsp of oil on each side of a slice of bread and rub it in.
sprinkle on half a tsp of sugar and a generous pinch cinnamon and press it in
flip over the bread and repeat the oil/sugar/cinnamon.
put the slice in the toaster and toast it for about 3 minutes.
This was really delicious, I am going to try it with other spices too. Ginger, Mixed Spice, Nutmeg – yum yum 🙂 .
Meal Plan Budgets
When I make a meal plan for Thrifty Lesley, I budget a fluid 20p for breakfast and lunch, 50p for dinner, 10p for a cakey thing on the £1 a day, so if you have this for breakfast, options open up. A 2nd slice! or an extra 16p somewhere else during the day, a more expensive dinner perhaps, or pop the extra few pence in a jar to save up for some kind of treat. A new nail varnish or lipstick, or a pint down the pub.
This is included. in Meal Plan 2, a complete 7 day plan for 2 adults. Contains 3 meals a day, plus snacks , all recipes and a shopping list
