Talk about getting bang for your buck.

In a world where a Freddo bar costs 30 cent, it may seem near-impossible to create a whole meal for a measly €1.20.

However, Instagram chef Miguel Barclay has set his sights on changing this.

His Instagram account One Pound Meals shows how to make a meal for, you guessed it, £1 (€1.18).

From oven fried chicken to quiche Lorraine to chicken leek pie, Miquel keeps the prices of his meals low and their taste levels high.

In each of his posts he breaks down the price of his ingredients, says where he bought them and shows his 78,000 followers how to make the recipe in a video.

Dinner never sounded so easy (or cheap!)
