gunna be a fatty for ever
oooh thanks! still trying to get to grips with the website!

I was thinking i always drain the fat right off so was gunna just use that as free on original!

thanks for your help!



Slow but sure....
Just a suggestion here, but maybe you could keep a packet of Quorn mince in your freezer as a standby, just in case you can't get your lean mince at some time...
Ello matey;)

I use the lean and drain it, but i also often mix the smallest packet of lean mince with a pack of quorn mince..it tastes practically the same, and means that when i make spag bol/cottage pie there is loads so i can freeze portions for another day:)


As others have said I dont think it will harm if you drain the fat off

What I tend to do a lot now is use half the mince that a recipe requires and for the other half top up with mushrooms, courgette, carrot and onion, I find I dont even miss the rest of the mince and its cheaper to :D
Yeah i add loads of grated carrot and courgette....saw it on Gordon Ramsey once lol, makes it go so much further
