Top Slimming & Weight Watchers Friendly Mince Recipes
We’re often asked, ‘What can I do with mince?’ so we thought we would compile our Top Slimming & Weight Watchers Friendly Mince Recipes in one place.
Mince is a really versatile food when you’re on a slimming diet. As you probably know, it’s free when you choose 5% fat beef, pork or turkey mince.
We have a huge selection of family favourites, comfort foods and batch-cooking friendly recipes on the Pinch of Nom website.
Chilli Cheesy Nachos
There was no way I could compile a list of Top Slimming & Weight Watchers Friendly Mince Recipes without including this one! It’s an absolute winner and a big favourite in our house.
There’s something very decadent about the combination of the warming, spicy chilli, crispy potato wedges and melted cheese! The best bit is, it’s under 500 calories per portion!
It was created after a chilly football training session with my daughter. We needed something hot, tasty, filling and quick!!
These Chilli Cheesy Nachos are soooo good! If you haven’t tried them yet, you really should!
Do you ever have one of those times when you can’t decide on chilli or a lasagne? Why not combine the two with our amazing Enchilada Lasagne!
This is a real crowd-pleaser of a recipe, one the whole family will love. Mine gave it a big thumbs up when I made it recently! A combination of lasagne and chilli that is 662 calories per portion.
It’s super simple to make, with no fiddly rolling or folding of the wraps, and the best bit is, you can pack it full of vegetables. That’s a winning combination for me. It freezes really well too.
Cajun Dirty Rice
When we first unveiled our original Dirty Fried Rice, we almost broke the internet! It was amazingly popular and everyone was making it, trying it, and falling in love with it!
Then people started asking if they could use other mince, so we created our Cajun Dirty Rice, using 5% beef mince. You can even make this with turkey mince. The possibilities are (almost) endless!
Some of the comments about this dish on our Facebook group tell their own story.
‘Nom’d by the whole family, definitely a crowd pleaser!’
‘Just cooked the BEST dinner EVER!! Cajun dirty rice is absolutely beautiful. I highly recommend it.’
‘I made this Cajun dirty rice the other day…. absolutely de-lic-ious????????’
You can’t beat Spaghetti Bolognese when it comes to a classic pasta dish. so obviously we’ve included it in our Top Slimming & Weight Watchers Friendly Mince Recipes list.
Our Bolognese is an Italian influenced sauce, that you can pack with vegetables for a budget-busting slimming meal.
Whenever I make this dish, I also make this delicious Cheesy Garlic Bread. It’s a match made in heaven!
We can’t have a collection of Top Slimming & Weight Watchers Friendly Mince Recipes without including these Sausage Rolls!
When we initially published this, it immediately became THE recipe to try! You couldn’t get hold of the Weight Watchers low fat wraps for love nor money. There were parties in supermarket aisles when supplies were found.
Who needs Greggs when you have these gorgeous, guilt-free Sausage Rolls? None of that greasy, unhealthy pastry here, just some 5% pork mince and plenty of seasoning.
Minced Beef Hotpot
If you’re looking for a hearty ‘hug on a plate’, you’ve found it! Our Minced Beef Hotpot is a satisfying and super tasty meal. It definitely deserves a place in our round up of Top Slimming & Weight Watchers Friendly Mince Recipes.
What could be better than a dishful of rich, savoury mince, sitting under a duvet of crisp, golden brown slices of potato?
It makes a great midweek meal, served with a pile of vegetables to complete a perfectly food optimised plate of food.
This Top Slimming & Weight Watchers Friendly Mince Recipes list wouldn’t be complete without a good chilli. It’s traditional, spicy comfort food that’s fab for a quick evening meal and ideal for batch cooking to freeze, too.
We have two versions of this recipe on the website. A simple Slow Cooker Chilli, or a stove top recipe for Chilli.
You can make this Chilli as hot as you like, or as hot as you dare! You can also use this recipe to make our fab Chilli Cheesy Nachos (pictured further up).
It’s also packed with healthy food and protein, so you can eat it any day, served with vegetables.
Chilli Pasta Bake
There are some days when you just need pasta. If you fancy a different take on a classic pasta bake, why not try our Chilli Pasta Bake?
This dish combines two favourite dishes, Chilli and Pasta, so of course we had to add it to our list of Top Slimming & Weight Watchers Friendly Mince Recipes.
It’s a rich, spicy, satisfying meal that is also suitable for freezing, so it’s ideal for batch cooking. In fact, this Chilli Pasta Bake ticks an awful lot of boxes!
You can add as much or as little chilli as you like, depending on your personal preferences. You can even use cheese for a deliciously cheesy topping! Nom…melted cheese…another box ticked for me!
A collection of the Top Slimming World Mince Recipes just wouldn’t be complete without our Syn Free Lasagne!
This is another really satisfying dish, full of flavour but low in calories and super tasty. It combines a rich bolognese sauce with pasta and cheese for a little taste of Italy.
It can also be packed with veg, so it’s great when you’re on a slimming plan.
Our lasagne can be prepared and cooked in under an hour, so it’s a great option for a family meal. It can also be frozen, so it’s easy to prepare in advance and freeze until you need it.
Cottage Pie is one of those recipes that takes me back to my childhood. Delicious, rich savoury mince, with a fluffy mashed potato topping. It just had to be included on our round up of Top Slimming & Weight Watchers Friendly Mince Recipes.
If you didn’t want to use potato as a topping for this pie, you could even use mashed swede and carrot instead.
This Cottage Pie can be made ahead of time and either kept in the fridge and cooked the next day, or frozen, and defrosted when you fancy Cottage Pie for dinner!
Homemade burgers are the best, so we’ve added these Stuffed Burgers to our Top Slimming & Weight Watchers Friendly Mince Recipes!
Making your own burgers is a great way to keep the calories to an absolute minimum, as you can choose exactly what to put in them! Shop bought burgers often contain rusk as a filler, to bulk out/bind the ingredients.
There’s no need to add anything other than the 5% mince, (you can use beef or pork!) some onion, and some seasoning. These Stuffed Burgers have a yummy cheesy filling. These are great for everyone to enjoy, the whole family can tuck in.
They’d be amazing served with our Dirty Fries, too! Mmmm, I’m drooling at the thought.
A good Bolognese is great to eat, but sometimes I just don’t fancy spaghetti served with it. Our Pasta Bolognese will solve that problem!
Imagine the best bolognese flavours, mixed with pasta and topped with cheese. Now bake it in the oven so that the cheese melts and goes golden brown. Nom!
This is a really tasty way to use beef or pork mince and adding the pasta makes it go miles further! You can bulk this dish out with vegetables too, making it really economical.
This recipe reheats really well, so any leftovers would be fine for a quick meal the following day.
Farfalloni Con Funghi
This Farfalloni Con Funghi is a super tasty meal that’s suitable for the whole family. It’s a regular favourite in our house and it freezes well too!
It’s incredibly popular with members of our Facebook Group, so we thought we should add it to the list of Top Slimming & Weight Watchers Friendly Mince Recipes.
Pork mince is a very economical meat, so this is a great budget friendly recipe. Once again, you can add lots of extra veg to make this go even further!
Farfalloni Con Funghi is another recipe that freezes well and leftovers are easy to reheat for a quick lunch, too!
