Cook once eat twice meals

These cook once eat twice meals and recipes can be adapted to feed a family for two nights. They’re the perfect way to prepare for busy nights when you don’t have time to cook. 

Some nights feel like chaos, don’t they? When your kids are little, you’re dealing with the witching hour. When they’re older, they need to be picked up from school, training and after-school classes. Before you know it, the sun is setting and everyone’s asking ‘what’s for dinner’?

This is the perfect time to heat up a dinner that you just happen to have in the fridge or freezer. And the best part is that you don’t even need to find extra time to prepare these meals – you simply make two dinners at once!

CHICKEN POT PIE

This recipe makes two family-sized pies, so it’s ideal to serve one and save one.

MEXICAN BEEF MINCE

Make a double quantity of this recipe, then serve with tacos one night, and with nachos or stirred through pasta the next.

TRADITIONAL LASAGNE

Lasagne is a good recipe to either keep refrigerated or freeze. Make a double batch of this recipe and enjoy for two nights.

The Falcon Enamel Lasagne Pan is ideal to take your lasagne from the oven to the freezer and back again (cooled and thawed in between of course!)

DELICIOUS COTTAGE PIE

Double the ingredients to make two cottage pies, and pop one in the freezer. You may like to cut into single serves for those nights when everyone is coming home at different times.

PERFECT ROAST BEEF

Cook a good size roast beef one night, and enjoy the leftover meat the next night on a wrap/roll or with salad and a baked potato.

CHICKEN AND ROAST PUMPKIN PASTA BAKE

Pasta bakes are easy to freeze so double up the ingredients and make two of these in one go. Served with a side salad or bread, this pasta bake makes enough to serve a family for 2 nights. 

SWEET AND SOUR MEATBALLS

These make a large enough batch that you can serve the leftovers a second night on bread rolls. Yum!
