“Good old mashed potatoes are budget-friendly and something almost everyone will eat. I did 10 lbs (pound) to serve 25-30 people last year, and they were gone.

I take Yukon golds and add homemade roasted garlic butter, half & half, salt and pepper. Simple and delicious.”

“Any root vegetable or combination of them cut up into cubes, tossed in olive oil, salt, and pepper, and roasted at 425 Fahrenheit until they get the nice crispy bits. These always do well. Remember to turn them over at twenty minutes, and if they’re done, but you want a little crisper, broil them for a minute or three.

This recipe works for any complex, crunchy vegetable, so try it with broccoli or Brussels sprouts.”

“Last year, I made roasted carrots in some honey-thyme glaze, and they came out amazing. Carrots are cheap, and I’m sure I had all the sauce ingredients on hand already!

“I love making my specialty, either asparagus or Brussels sprouts tossed with salt and pepper and some olive oil with optional red chili flakes for a bit of a kick. Brussel sprouts can be cut in half or served whole in the oven at 425° Fahrenheit to your preferred texture (soft or a bit of a crunch). 

Once they’re almost ready, toss them with some grated Parmesan and broil for a couple of minutes to melt the cheese.”

“Butterscotch Yams and green bean casserole are my go-to! There’s a few minutes of stirring with the yams, but they’re cheap and easy past that. I just got Bruce’s yam cans and a bag of marshmallows for the top. 

Other than that, I keep things like karo syrup and sugar/cinnamon in the house already. I use the green bean recipe from the fried onion container. If I recall, it’s French-cut green bean cans, cream of mushroom, salt and pepper, and a good amount of crispy onions. All these ingredients can be found at the dollar store.”

“Noodles. Mix flour and eggs to make a dry dough. Roll out. Let dry further. Cut into noodles. It can be made beforehand and frozen until ready to boil. Boil in broth for the best flavor.”

“I make crockpot cranberry sauce. A bag of fresh or frozen cranberries, one seedless orange (or use seeded and try to remove seeds), brown or white sugar, one cinnamon stick, or some powdered cinnamon is refined.

Throw the cranberries in a small crockpot with the sugar and cinnamon over the top. Cut the orange into 4ths and juice over the top. Throw in the squeezed orange portions. Cook for 3-4 hours on high, stirring every hour. Remove the orange portions after the sauce is cooked down before serving.

I have made this for 3-4 years, and it’s always a hit.”

“Sweet potatoes in the oven at 500-525 Fahrenheit until they start leaking black from the end. Once it cools, the skin will be loose, and the sugars inside caramelized. Add butter, milk, and salt. It’s not intended to be as sweet as yams. They’re perfect and simple.”

“Turkey. You can get a 15 lb (pound) turkey for $15. Mashed potatoes, a 5 lb bag is like $3. Then, if you take the turkey drippings and add some flour and optional seasoning, you have gravy.

Biscuits are a good option, too, $2 max for about 8-12 biscuits. If you still want more food, corn is decent, but prices vary based on what kind you like. Can easily get a can to feed five people for $2 or less, though.”

“A can of pumpkin is cheaper than pecans, so a pumpkin pie. Trader Joe’s seems to have the cheapest butter around if you do an all-butter crust. Prebake the crust; I like Hoosier Mama’s recipe a lot.”
