Dec 8, 2021 Arthur Murray

Do you and your partner struggle with budgeting money? Here is the list of delicious dinners you can make that will be less than $10 per person! A big part of your date night will be spending time together as a couple, talking, and enjoying some good food. That means you need to make sure that you both are on the same page when it comes to money and spending.

These recipes are all under $10 per person, which means you will have more cash left over for fun date activities like a visit to a museum, movie theater, or something you’ve always wanted to try.

I know that there are some of you out there who are a bit uncomfortable with trying new foods. You might be afraid that you’ll be disappointed and that will ruin your experience.

Don’t worry. The recipes are very simple, and I’m sure you’ll love them. If you do find somehting that you’re not crazy about, it’s easy to make a substitution or adjust the ingredients.

Here is the list of the 7 dinners you and your partner can make that are under $10 per person.

7 Delicious Dinners for Couples Under $10

These 7 recipes are perfect for any date night, whether you and your partner are in the mood for a nice romantic dinner, a casual dinner for two, or you just want to treat yourself.

The best part is that you and your partner can both enjoy these dinners as they are not too heavy or too rich. The food is comforting, delicious and (some of it, at least) is healthy, so you can feel good about eating it.

Check out these delicious dinners that cost under $10 to put on your menu:

  1. Turkey and Cheese Sandwich- Turkey, cheese, and any veggies of your choice – it doesn’t need to be fancy, but go with a lean turkey so you don’t overload yourself.

  2. Pizza – A pizza is an easy way to get your partner to try something new while keeping it familiar. Go with either a traditional crust or a gluten free crust, but experiment with white pizza or a calzone and then top them it as many toppings as you would like.

  3. Grilled Chicken – For a real easy and cheap date night dinner option, make some grilled chicken with just lemon and olive oil. Then you can make some grilled veggies to serve alongside the chicken.

  4. Pesto Pasta- This is one of my favorite dinners. It’s so simple and only costs $6 for a large serving. It’s perfect for two as a main course, or two people as an appetizer.

  5. Chicken and Dumplings – This is so easy, it’s almost cheating. I’ve made a few times this as an easy and delicious dinner for $5 and under. It’s so simple, and yet everyone has loved it!

  6. Salmon Salad – This is a go-to for many dates that I know, and it’s usually about $10 per person. I have it with a grilled salmon, a couple of tomatoes, and a drizzle of olive oil.

  7. Sushi Rolls – Another simple option that always works. We usually sheets of nori (that’s the green seaweed sushi is wrapped in) and roll our own. This will be less than $10 and always a good option. That’s right. It’s so much cheaper to make sushi at home than it costs at a restaurant.

Thanks for reading. I hope you enjoyed these simple, cheap and budget friendly dinners!
