Mince on toast

If you have mince leftover from a dish such as spaghetti bolognaise or moussaka, reheat the mince mixture and add a few cans of baked beans to make it go further. Spoon the mixture into fresh, buttered rolls for delicious, but messy sloppy joes. The kids will love it! Or you can just as easily add a few mushrooms and spoon over toast.

Cooking with Mince
Mince can be made into so many delicious dishes, from Italian to Mexican. Here are a couple of tips to get it right.
• Free-range beef mince is tastier and healthier than other beef mince so look out for it in your local store and compare prices. While slightly pricier, the leanest mince is always the best choice for meals such as hamburgers, cottage pie, chilli con carne and bolognaise while regular mince works well for meals like meatballs and meatloaf.
• Uncooked mince can be frozen for two to three months.
• Make sure your mince is properly defrosted and be sure to break it up before adding it to the pan to ensure even browning.
• Add your spices as you brown the meat, and if the mince is very lean, add a teaspoon of olive oil.
• Once cooked, drain the mince to get rid of excess fat. This creates a looser, fresher tasting dish with far less calories.
