Quick-Cook Steel-Cut Oats
Speaking of oatmeal, it's another breakfast staple on my grocery list. Oatmeal is by no means the most exciting breakfast, but it's one of the cheapest and most filling. For a step above the microwaveable packets, I opt for quick-cook steel-cut oats ($2 at Trader Joe's). These stove-top oats cook in about eight minutes, and the container lasts for weeks in my pantry.
