Cover and let rise in warm place for 15 minutes.

Bake at 375 for 15 – 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Grand Total for both recipes $4.74

Now my family is larger than most with 6 people (sometimes more depending on who stops by), so this would feed all of us with only a little leftovers. If your family is an average size of four people this would be one meal for dinner and one meal for the freezer. If it's two meals the grand total would be $2.37.  Now thats what Savvy Coupon Clippers likes!  Not to mention it's supper yummy!
