Affordable, quick and delicious - find fab recipes to make the most of beef mince, from juicy beef burgers and meatballs to cottage pie and the perfect Bolognese.
This is a variation of the ever-popular spaghetti bolognese and is sure to become just as well-loved. The little meatballs have aubergine added for a modern twist, and the sauce contains all the essential flavours of a classic Italian dish. Both can be made ahead, then simply reheated when you are ready to cook the pasta.
REMEMBER! You can add but cannot take away....
A lovely combination of mince, macaroni and a luscious cheese sauce, this is pure comfort food! It's tasty and cheap to make too!
Not a cottage pie, not a shepherd's pie it's just yummmmm! Extremely tasty, very lazy laid back cooking, just chuck it in and see. Easy adaptable recipe for one person to as many as you have, just adjust the ingredients to suit you and go for it. Serve with veg of your choice. Depending on how many you are cooking for either halve or add to my basic amount.
This is the best chilli recipe I know! You can modify the spice level to suit your own family's taste. Don't be alarmed by the amount of sauce - it should reduce down with cooking. You can also make this in a slow cooker.
An easy to make cottage pie thats great for getting your five a day, easy to cook and can be re-heated, made vegetarian or vegan, and can be frozen. You can easily make this a vegetarian cottage pie by omitting the mince, or substituting tinned lentils for the mince. You can make it vegan by using margarine and soya milk for the mash.
This is an amazing Mexican-inspired dish of chilli con carne with soured cream and soft flour tortillas baked in the oven. Leftovers are great the next day reheated in the microwave!
A Scottish favourite, this is a hearty and comforting meal.
This spaghetti Bolognese is the most comforting meal you will ever eat. It is more garlicky than many Bolognese sauces but it is simple and delicious. Once you have tasted this, you will never want to eat sauce from a jar ever again!
Samosas are traditionally deep-fried, but in this delicious version they are made with crunchy filo pastry, brushed with a little oil and baked. Serve with fruit chutney or yoghurt raita and a mixed salad for a casual, light lunch.
