Meat biscuits in a laco with sweet potato

Recipe : Meat Biscuits

If you want that meaty protein hit without spending $20 a kilo on tinned tuna or chicken, try meat biscuits!  Mince meat at the supermarket costs between $6 and $12 a kilo, with the regular, fatty meats being cheaper than the heart smart stuff, and if you can score mince on special, then you’re winning.

 

Each meat biscuit has about 10g of protein and sits between 90-130 calories, depending on which meat you use (poultry biscuits contain less fat).  They’re delicious, store easily in a container in the fridge and they last for a few days.  Versatility is through the roof – put them into sandwiches and wraps, crumble them into a salad, or make a meat biscuit burger by putting cheese, cucumber and sauce between two biscuits.  Eating them on their own is a great snack too.

 

 

The recipe is too easy… are you ready for this?  One batch makes 20 meat biscuits and they are easily prepared on an electric BBQ or pan over the stove.
