If you’re self-quarantined, you probably need some recipes that use the ingredients you already have. Recipes that use bread, butter, sugar, eggs, and not much else are great to always have at the ready.
When times are rough, either financially or because of a raging pandemic, for instance, it’s nice to have some tried & true recipes to go to. A yummy spicy chili is a good one. We also love this post that features 22 recipes that only need 3 ingredients to make.
Recipes Using Only Bread, Butter, Sugar, Eggs, and Milk
We’ve all heard stories about the great depression. Not saying that’s happening now. But this virus definitely has us all thinking of ways to use what we already have and to save our nickels. Most of us typically have staples, like bread, butter, sugar, eggs, and milk. The recipes we’re sharing today use those ingredients so that even when times are tough, you can make something your family will appreciate. (Bonus: they’re inexpensive to make.)
