Bargain Meal - Bi Lo (2/11/09)  

Posted by: Julie in

Here is a pretty yummy bargain meal I found using the Bi Lo sales paper.

Tilapia is on sale BOGO so your cost for (1) 16 oz package is $4.00
Southern Home 10 oz frozen broccoli $1.00 (sorry for more broccoli but it's a good deal and it goes with the tilapia recipe)
Blue Ribbon Extra Long Grain White Rice is BOGO. Use approximately 1/2 of the package and your cost is $0.55.
(You will need a few spices and lemon juice but I've not figured this into the cost. I assume if you cook much at home that you will have these basic supplies already on hand)
To make the Tilapia, spray a baking dish with cooking spray. Place your fish in the dish, dot with butter and sprinkle with salt, garlic powder, Old Bay seasoning and paprika. Add a dash of lemon juice to each piece of fish or place a lemon slice on top. Place your frozen broccoli in the baking dish around the fish. I like to sprinkle the spices on the broccoli to add a bit more flavor, but that is optional. Cover with foil and bake at 375* for 25 - 30 minutes.

Prepare rice according to package directions.
Serves 4

We tried this dish for the first time earlier this week and the kids just LOVED it!

Total Cost: $5.55
