Expert Tips

  • Kitchen Tips: Add ground pork, veal or chicken to the ground beef for a great-tasting flavour variation. Add herbs such as oregano, basil, thyme or parsley for added punch.
  • Time Savers: Make Ahead: Assemble, refrigerate up to 24 hours and reheat. Double up recipe, cool before freezing and freeze in individual containers for up to 3 months.
