Mince And Mash

Today's recipe is for another easy V Family favourite - mince and mash! This will serve 2 - 4 people depending on portion sizes.


1 Onion
500g Pork Mince
400g Cheesy Mash
1 400g Tin of Cirio Chopped Tomatoes
250ml Gravy

Mince And Mash


1. Chop the onion and brown off in a frying pan with the mince.

4. Serve with cheesy mash - I went for the easy microwave option but you could, of course, make your own (with four children I tend to go for the quickest, easiest option whenever I can).

5. Enjoy!

This is a lovely warm, comforting meal that doesn't take long to prepare but is very tasty. The tomatoes add such a lovely flavour to the dish, you really wouldn't believe they were from a tin.

Do you like to make cooking simple or are you a cook-from-scratch kind of person? I'd love to hear from you.

We received some Cirio products to use in our recipes. All opinions are my own or that of my family.


  1. One of my favourite comfort foods Kate. Your photos look delicious :)

    For me I think it's a mixture of ready made/from scratch. Depends what's happening and how long we have. x

    1. Yes, time is a big factor isn't it! I would imagine most people use a mixture of both, there are so many good ready made products out there that it makes sense.

      Thank you Shaz x
