Slow Cooked Minced Lamb with Feta

Slow Cooked Minced Lamb with Feta

I have to admit that I've struggled with lamb in the past, especially when I was pregnant. It was the smell that put me off - it was too lamby! (sounds bonkers).

However I've made a conscious effort to embrace it and this slow cooked lamb mince recipe is beautiful. The kids loved it, hubby loved it and I loved it. It was so good I'm doing it again next week.

I served this with some pasta. However I'm tempted to try cooking the pasta in the slow cooker next time, along with the sauce - you can add it during the last 30 minutes of cooking. I'll let you know how it turns out.

I crumbled over some feta on serving but grated cheddar would be fine too.

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!



TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…
