Mint and Yogurt Bread for $2.38

This may seem a bit odd to you all. But trust me. It tastes amazing. This is a perfect bread for a lazy Saturday morning. Toast it and put your favorite jam on top of it and you have a real game changer.

What you will need:

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 cup greek yogurt
  • 4 teaspoons mint
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 1 tablespoon yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt

How to make:

Step 1: Get 1/4 cup of warm water and put it in a large mixing bowl with yeast and sugar . Let sit for 20 minutes.

Step 2: 1 cup of flour and stir. Add honey and salt and stir. Add second cup of flour and stir. Add greek yogurt and stir. Add remaining 3/4 of cup and stir. Stir until well combined. And knead on a lightly floured surface for 3 minutes.

Step 3: Put dough ball in oiled bowl and cover it with a clean towel for 1 and a half hours.

Step 4: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Put dough ball on a oiled baking sheet and let cover it again for another 30 minutes.

Step 5: Pop in the oven for 35 minutes or until sufficiently golden brown. Serve and enjoy!

Cost breakdown:

  • I did not include sugar, salt and honey costs in this recipe since you are hardly using any.
  • A five pound bag of King Arthur flour goes for $4.95. You get about 18 cups out of it. So food cost for this dish is about 0.82 cents.
  • The great value brand of 32 oz. of Greek Yogurt costs $3.78 for 32 oz. I used 1 cup. So food cost for this dish would be around 0.94 cents. 
  • Mint was 2.50 at the store for around 4 oz. I used about 1 oz. of mint. So food cost for this dish would be 0.62 cents.

This leads us to a grand total of $2.38
