First of all, welcome again to Frugal Mummy as a 'new' follower, who is having tremendous bad luck with her blog continually disappearing.
The other day, I bought all the ingredients to make both faggots and our version of meatballs.
I used my recipe which you can find on a post from 28th October 2013 (an adapted version by Froogs!)
HOWEVER, I did decide this time not to put the gravy on the faggots after 30 minutes. Instead they were roasted in the oven for the full 45 minutes - turning halfway through to get them to not stick too badly.
The ones still on the plate were for our tea!
We managed to get 4 foil trays (plus gravy) and enough for tea as well. Not necessarily the cheapest meals we make but I know what has gone into them, know we will enjoy them and for me, that is worth more than gold!
