Rubber Chicken (4), Chicken and Pea Risotto 84p a portion
Home made herby chicken goujons, mash and peas, 97p. Plus how to stay on budget for the day

The simplest of simple breakfasts this morning.

I got some yellow stickered smoked mackerel this week. So this morning I toasted a slice of granary bread, slathered on some soft cheese and flaked half a mackerel fillet on top. Simples!

Slice toast, a 22 slice 75p loaf, 3p
Half of a fillet of smoked mackerel, Basics, £2/250g 50p
40g soft cheese, Basics, 300g/73p, 10p

At 63p, this is an expensive breakfast if you are budgeting £1 a day. But doable nonetheless. It could be done by enjoying it for lunch, and if you have access to a toaster at work, you could do it exactly as it is. If not, it could be enjoyed with 2 slices of bread instead of 1, as a sandwich. Or if you like cold toast, do the toast before you go to work, slice it into fingers or quarters and assemble it at work.
