Meijer Meal Planning Week 1/31 : 6 Meals Under $50

It’s a new week of bringing you these awesome budget friendly meal planning for all of you Meijer Shoppers. 

For this week the Meijer Matchups posted here on Fresh Outta Time, I’ve been able to come up with a whole week’s worth of dinners that will cost $50, along with a few things from your pantry!   You can also print out my FREE Meal Planning printables that will help you plan and organize your meals each week! (this is always super helpful for me!!)

  • This is based on a family of 4-5- so you will need to adjust it accordingly for a bigger or smaller family.

Meal 1:  Grilled Kielbasa with Sauerkraut and Tots  $5.42

  • 1 pkg Eckrich kielbasa
  • 1 can Frank’s sauerkraut
  • 4 Meijer hotdog buns

  • Olive oil (pantry)

Directions:  Grill the kielbasa until the skin is crisp.  Heat the sauerkraut to simmering. Cut the sausage into 4 pieces and serve with the kraut in buns.  Place the tater bites on a rimmed baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and bake as directed on the package.

Place the pan in a 425°F oven and bake for 8 minutes, until the chicken is cooked throughout. Place the chicken on a plate and add the oregano, onion, garlic, and pepper flakes to the pan.  Stir and saute over medium heat for 1 minute. Add the chicken stock and reduce by half.
