Mince is so versatile, I find it worthwhile to have 500g – 1kg in my fridge most weeks.
The other good thing about mince, is that most recipes are easy for teenagers to make.
When the call goes up, “Mum, I’m hungry”, I can reply, “make up a pot of taco mince or meatballs or..”.
Also if you are stuck for meal ideas during a busy week, then mince has almost a thousand uses.
Italian: pasta bake, lasagne, spaghetti bolognese
