Budget Recipes

Here is a list of recipes we often have in our meal rotation at home. The prices will obviously vary depending on where you shop, what time of year it is and how long ago I checked the prices, but all of these recipes slot easily into a £40 per week family meal plan.

Though the below recipes might not impress John Torode, I aim to produce nutritious and appetising food that's easy on the wallet. Let me know if you try and enjoy any of my recipes!
