Hi Girls, Trying to use up what's in my freezer, it's like Antartic and badly needs to be defrosted so anything that didn't get binned for being in there so long is getting used and I refuse to buy anything more to go in it. I've got a savoury mince pack in the cupboards and a carton of minced steak in the freezer. Anybody got a recipe for it to make something along the lines of a stew/casserole? Please :-)

Shepards pie? Fry the mince, bang in some onions, carrots, peas and other veg if u want, whack some mashed spuds on top, brush with milk and bang in d oven?

Tacos or encheiadas (spelling!!). Just buy the taco shells or wraps in Dunnes. For the encihladas - put the cooked mince in the wraps, roll them up, put in a dish with a tomato sauce and grated cheese over the top and bake - a little like this recipe but with mince: http://www.oldelpaso.co.uk/mexican-reci ... iladas.htm

See with the savoury mince you could throw in any frozen veg you might have. For the mash to do it properly I'd say roast a bulb of garlic with olive oil in the oven for an hour, then leave to cool before using it, but for weekday convenience you could just use garlic butter instead an leave it melt in the pan and fry slightly before mashing. Mmmm I love garlic!
