I'm doing a big "meatball" cook off. These are the beef and pork ones and the prawn balls are about to go into the oven (once I clean off a silicon tray!).
I usually cook in bulk as it means I have something in the freezer either to use for lunches or as a base for dinner. It's my equivalent of a take-away ...
Minced meat can be a great buy when it comes to hesitant eaters. Many learner eaters find meat challenging. This is often due to the texture. It's very chewy and goes dry and stringy very quickly in the mouth. Mince is far easier to eat and so is better received.
Mince is super versatile as it can be mixed with all sorts of flavours to create a new taste. You can also add nutrient boosts. My minced beef balls do not use bread crumbs but are bound with egg and ground linseeds. They are so moist and deliver an omega 3 boost to boot.
Have you tried mince for your kids?
