  1. Have made these today & they are amazing, they are so flavoursome & creamy. Loved them a very big thumbs up thank you.

  2. Absolutely yum! Definitely a new favourite in our household, I could’ve eaten more of them but had to restrain myself! I didn’t add the cooking cream and only did 4 tsp dollops of cream cheese and my partner doesn’t like things too creamy and it came out perfectly, he licked his plate clean!

    So rich and creamy and flavourful! I skipped the soup mix since i didnt have any, and it was still so tasty!

  4. Very yummy ? my husband wasn’t too keen when I told him what we were having but once he tried it he went back for seconds. I also added spinach towards the end for some other texture I also served with pasta and it was delicious

  5. Very easy to make and lots of flavour. Used evaporated milk instead of cooking cream and cooked for 4 hrs in high. 6 servings (generous) Served with penne pasta and both hubby and 2 y/o enjoyed it.

  6. I made these but used pork for Christmas dinner. It being Christmas my cat Ratty got a pork ball for dinner. The next morning she was at the fridge saying them leftovers are mine Mumma. Mumma loved them. This week I used beef. Loved them just as much and left over sauce is great with Yorkshire puds

  7. Made this today/tonight and tweaked it a little. Used store bought Beef & Pork meatballs – browned first before putting in SC. Added slightly cooked bacon. Put in SC with chopped onion; Sml punnet sliced mushrooms then the sauce and cooked as per instructions with tea towel under lid. Half an hour before cooking finished added roughly chopped spinach and frozen peas.
    Served on Broccoli/Cauliflower Rice.
    Definitely got our veggies in!! Super creamy. Family loved it and asking when am cooking it next.
