Eggs come to mind and are one of the best sources of protein/fats. Oats and bread are good, cheap carb sources.

Dried beans
Flour (make your own bread, pancakes, muffins, etc with eggs/milk) insanely cheap

thats not very cheap in terms of just calories
you can get 700 calories of dry beans, eggs, oats or PB for less than a buck

We can get whole pork loins here sometimes for 99 cents a pound. Slice it up and you basically have boneless pork chops. I get about 18-20 steaks out of one loin. And its a nice lean cut.

I gotta agree....End of the nite rotisserie chickens is da bess. You can freeze em too!
