When budgets are tight, you sometimes need to make meals stretch a bit further. With a bit of careful planning, you can turn one initial meal into three dinners. We’ve put together some suggestions and tips to help family meal planning with this list of delicious triple dinners that will go down well with all ages.
When you can, plan meals ahead that you can double or even triple up to make more from the initial meal, maximise the dinner opportunities, and help to keep costs down. You can also freeze leftovers to make those future meals if you don’t want to feel like you’re eating the same thing all in the space of a few days.
Most of these meal ideas start with a roast, so look for a larger piece to give you a bit more to stretch with. Remember, cheaper cuts of meat will not only keep your budget on track but are delicious slow cooked.
