I have been given lots of mince from a local butcher (friend). So far we have had lasagne & spag Bol. I've no idea what to do with the rest & it's the only meat I have left.

Hubby hates mince/onions/veg/potatoes all together so that's not an option.

Could you give me some inspiration please??

Meatballs? Meat loaf? burgers?

Moussaka?

Burgers-add an egg, some finely chopped onion, breadcrumbs and an egg.

Meatballs-as above!

I do a thing where I make a bread/herb/onion stuffing and then take the mince, keep it together and then stuff it, pour a bit of wine over it and roast it. It is really lovely.

Bobotie. its a south African dish - bit like a shepherd's pie but spicey and no potato (so. err, not very like a shepherd's pie really). loads of different recipes out there eg www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/5109/bobotie

Is it minced lamb or beef?

Keema curry

If lamb I would do a keema curry or moroccan style meatballs.

Cross post with Clueing. Great minds as they say!

What's a sloppy joe?

I see someone has already suggested chilli. What about burritos?

It has to be minced lamb for that.

Proper mince pie.

Frettybetty18 Sun 23-Aug-15 19:02:40

Oh lovely thanks for all the suggestions!! We've just has Chilli & it was lovely.

I'll be trying lots of those recipes for the first time; we're not very adventurous.

LongDistanceLove Sun 23-Aug-15 19:03:39

Ooh puddings in the corner.

CultureSucksDownWords Sun 23-Aug-15 19:05:19

Bunbaker, I'm not psychic! The fact that it was beef mince was only specified after my post...
