This Cracker Barrel Meal Hack Feeds Your Whole Family for as Little as $40

And you get extra time with the people around your table.

<p>Cracker Barrel</p>

Cracker Barrel

Restaurant food for $10 a person doesn't seem likely these days. Even fast-food restaurants can charge $15 or more per meal. It doesn't seem possible to feed a family of five for as little as $40, but Cracker Barrel, a restaurant known for its home-style cooking, is proving it is.

Cracker Barrel offers family meals similar to the Texas Roadhouse family meals, which are perfect for busy weeknights. However, Cracker Barrel offers nine different options, including an all-day breakfast bundle.

Each meal includes a main dish and sides to serve a family of five, ranging in cost from $37-$55 (depending on location). That's an average of less than $10 a person (before tax and gratuity). That's not a lot of money for the convenience of having someone else cook for you and the joy of not dirtying your kitchen prepping and cooking a meal. Plus, the time you're not spending in the kitchen can be spent with friends and family at the table. 

Cracker Barrel's Homestyle Family Meals for 5 People

Each of the following meals serves five people and is served hot and ready to eat:

  • Sirloin Steak Tips n' Tenders Family Meal: Sirloin steak tips with garlic butter, fried or grilled chicken tenders with dipping sauce, and two country sides and buttermilk biscuits.

  • Meatloaf n' Tenders Family Meal: Made-from-scratch meatloaf, fried or grilled chicken tenders with dipping sauce, and two country sides and buttermilk biscuits.

  • Homestyle Chicken n' French Toast Family Meal: Homestyle chicken with special-recipe French toast served with hashbrown casserole or fried apples.

  • All-Day Pancake Breakfast Family Meal: Buttermilk pancakes, scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage patties, and hashbrown casserole or fried apples.

  • Southern Fried Chicken Family Meal: Twelve pieces of bone-in fried chicken, ten buttermilk biscuits, and two country sides.

  • Signature Chicken n' Dumplins Family Meal: Signature chicken n' dumplins, buttermilk biscuits, and two country sides.

  • Homestyle Chicken Family Meal: Homestyle chicken, buttermilk biscuits, and two country sides.

  • Scratch-Made Meatloaf Meal: Made-from-scratch meatloaf, buttermilk biscuits, and two country sides.

  • Grilled Chicken Tenderloins Meal: Grilled chicken tenderloins with barbecue and honey mustard dipping sauces, buttermilk biscuits, and two country sides.

Cracker Barrel’s Easter Family Dinners

Cracker Barrel also has two heat-and-serve Easter dinner meals that start at $99.99 and feed 4-6 people (and one feast that serves 8-10). They seem like good deals, too, particularly because you don't have to cook a single thing. Instead, you can spend the holiday focused on people, not pots and pans. Choose from two Easter ham dinners and one prime rib dinner. All dinners include sides and yeast rolls and come cold and ready to throw in the oven to reheat and serve.

Be sure to preorder Easter meals ahead of time for pickup or delivery (with a delivery charge) between March 28 and 31.

With all that time you won't be spending in the kitchen, maybe you can spend it hosting an epic Easter egg hunt party instead.
