Coffee cake and oatmeal? No problem. I have a handful of rich recipes I use for brunch.
Wait! This budget menu doesn't include sour cream or cake mix; neither can I spare 4 eggs. Retro Food rescued me with a tasty 1-egg version that calls for shortening instead of butter.
The family approves.
Bonus: I can use this recipe for company without so much expense.
