Mince & Sausage Recipes that can be Batch Cooked and Frozen:
This is a slight tweak on the original recipe for Porcupine Meatballs, but we sneak loads of veggies in there – the kids will never ever know!
Another great recipe that not only freezes spectacularly well, but also hides loads of vegetables in there.
Lasagne does take a bit of work – so when you can make it in huge batches like you can in the slow cooker – you want to be able to freeze a heap of it for later. That’s the beauty of this recipe. Plus it is damn delicious!
Mince Scrolls are absolutely superb for the school lunch box. Make them in huge batches, freeze them individually and pop one frozen (yes, straight from the freezer) into your child’s lunchbox. By the time it gets to morning tea or lunch time it will be perfectly defrosted and ready to be devoured.
I always keep bags of cooked savoury mince in my freezer. That’s because it is so versatile. If I’m feeling lazy – I can just heat it up in the microwave and have Savoury Mince on toast. If I want a cheats bolognaise, I add a tin of tomato soup to the mince and serve it over spaghetti. You can add noodles and a bit of curry powder and some shredded vegetables for a chow mein. This is a great way to save time and money – especially during the busy school week.
Shhhh don’t tell anyone, but this is my way of cheating when making Shepherd’s Pie – without going to all the hassle of making mashed potato!
My original and best freezer cooking recipe. We have spaghetti a lot in our house – at least once per week (usually more) – and so this is my go-to freezer cooking meal – especially when I can get mince on sale!
I do love a good sausage! And when you cook them long and slow in the slow cooker – it really brings out their delicious flavours. Just choose good sausages that aren’t too fatty – I like getting good pork sausages (haha I want to say pork sword) from my local butcher – they are scrumptious and really make this recipe pop!
This is the simplest Curried Sausage recipe around – because simple is easy – and simple is best!
