    Budget SW meals!

    This week I have my step sons here for Easter, I am currently living on sick pay and disability and this coming week I am on minimal money due to a hefty bill. Plus 2 Teenager mouths to feed as extra as well as my own 3 kiddly beans.

    This week I really need very very budget meal ideas for a family of 7 yes SEVEN!

    Eggs and chips obviously super budget and great but I am unsure a week on eggs and chips will make me happy.

    Pretty Please help! I am 4 weeks in and really do not fancy a gain


    Thanks in advance xxx

    Baked potatoes and beans
    Pasta, veg and a spicy passata sauce
    Sausage casserole (use a packet of mixed frozen veg and some potatoes to bulk it out)
    Meatballs and spaghetti. Give lots of spaghetti and then you only need a couple of meat balls each
    Turkey curry Again use a packet of frozen veg to bulk it out and a carton of passata with some curry powder and turkey is cheaper than other meats.
    Chilli and rice. If I bulk this out with a couple of tins of kidney/baked beans and some veg I find I only use 1/2 a pack of EL mince to serve 4 plus left overs for lunches so should easily feed 7.
    I hope this helps

    you can make it on a larger level. Get my ingredients from aldi so works out really cheap



    Mexican rice bake
    Recipe for 2

    For the rice you will need-
    Half a cup of rice
    Half a tin of kidney beans
    Half a red and green pepper
    Half an onion

    For the topping-
    Half an onion
    Small carton of passata
    1 garlic clove chopped
    1tsp of chilli powder
    1tsp of paprika
    1tsp of cinnamon
    1tap cayenne pepper
    Salt and pepper seasoning
    80g cheese (2 hex)

    What you need to do-

    Preheat oven to 200

    Cook rice, drain and set aside

    Meanwhile fry onion, and garlic clove then add passata, spices and tomato's to the pan and let it simmer for about 15 minutes.

    In a seperate pan, fry onion and peppers.
    Add rice and kidney beans.

    Pour rice mixture into a oven proof dish.

    Spread the sauce over the rice.

    Sprinkle cheese over the top and bake in oven until brown.

    - when split into two portions it's free if you use the cheese as healthy extra.

    - can make smaller portions but I am greedy!

    hope you enjoy this recipe.
