    Default Best mince recipes?

    My usuals include spaghetti Bol, lasagna, Shepherd's pie, savory mince, Mexican, meatloaf, rissoles/burgers and meatballs.
    Looking for new recipes and new twists on old ones. Can you share a family favourite?

    Make up a batch of bolognaise style mince.

    Boil some water and add packet of potato gnocci until just cooked (as soon as they start floating to the surface, pull them out).

    Arrange the mince in a baking dish, spread layer of gnocci on top of mince and cover with grated cheese. Bake in the oven until cheese is golden.

    It's the only way I've ever enjoyed potato gnocci, yummo!

    There's actually a women's weekly cookbook for mince (and sausage) recipes. Only about $12 if you can find one! I got mine in Coles or Woolies.

    Otherwise I do...

    Tomato Chutney Burritos - these are so good. Probably not very healthy though

    You need a jar of tomato chutney, grated cheese, 10 flour tortillas, mince and curry powder. And oil.

    Using NO OIL in a non-stick pan, pop in 1/2 teaspoon of curry powder until it smokes and changes colour. Then dry-fry it with the mince. Get it all out and into a bowl. Rub down the inside of the pan with a paper towel. Then fill about 1cm with oil.

    On each tortilla spread 1 tablespoon of chutney, 1/4 cup of grated cheese and 1/3 cup mince. Roll tortillas up and pop in the pan. You can fit about 2-3 at a time. Keep in the oven to stay warm until they're all done, or just pop some foil over them on a plate. They're so good! The chutney gives it a nice tang!

    This chow mein is yummy (I've done it with other types of mince, not just pork): http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/18084/pork+chow+mein

    Another yum one. Like a mexican lasagne I suppose: http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/16862/tortilla+stack

    Could do some sausage rolls or scrolls or whatever as well. Or curries.

    I love mince!

    I make middle eastern meatballs- using 500g lamb mince, ground cumin, mixed spice, ground coriander, dry mint, finely diced eschallot, minced garlic, you can add apple and pine nuts if you like, salt, pepper- shallow fry then cook through in the oven- served with yoghurt/ coriander dip. The kids love them!

    Also, my secret to the best spag bol is to use 2 parts beef mince, one part pork mince, as well as chopped bacon. Once the tomatoes etc go in, I season with salt and sugar as the toms can sometimes be too tart. Yum!

    We do easy meatballs which is dp's fave!

    About 500g mince add grated carrot, grated onion 1 egg and about 2 tablespoons of bread crumbs (give or take I don't measure just put in as much as I think) then I roll them into medium sized balls and cook them in fry pan. Dissolve 1 tsp vegeta in 1 cup of boiling water. Add into frypan with a packet of French onion soup. ( this makes a thick gravy like sauce) we always have it with steamed veggies and a piece of bread to soak up the sauce!
