If you have a heap of leftover mince and are looking for the perfect recipe idea. I have just the thing for you and maybe a couple of extra ideas as well for you to try.
I had a long conversation with a friend about leftovers and using up mince for other things. It made me realise just how common a problem it is to come up with ideas on the spot with what else to do with it. I thought I'd share one of my recent recreations for you.
Firstly, we had some Macaronia – Meat Bolognese for dinner one night. I always love making a heap of the bolognese as it can be used to make up so many other things. It's also a really affordable and filling dish that I can then stretch out to multiple dishes, as I'm about to show you.
From the leftover bolognese, I made a layered veggie mince dish. It consisted of sliced veggies on the bottom, that I must admit I used the new Thermomix slicer for. I often change the veggies to zucchini, carrot, sweet potatoes or whatever else I might have on hand. Often even multiple mixed layers between the meat and sauce.
Then I layered it with the leftover mince as pictured. It's cold in the picture but once I put in in the oven it will warm up and create a lovely layer in the dish.

Then I finished it off with my very popular thick and creamy bechamel sauce and a little shredded cheese on top.
