SPLIT MEAT MEALS
What is a split meal? Do you often cook dinners on a budget? If so, my split-meat meal idea is perfect for you! Make your spaghetti and tacos this week, using only one package of meat!
I started my split meals when my husband was buying our ground turkey from Costco. The packages of meat were bigger, so I would make two meals out of one meat pack! My two go-to meals for splitting are spaghetti and tacos! (Although you could do Chili and add extra veggies)
So my split meal is just that! I split the meat and drum up two meals with one meat package!
After a while I started doing this with the regular sized packs of meat, be it ground turkey or ground beef. I then realized I didn’t mind less meat in my spaghetti sauce and no one else in my family seemed to mind either.(Note: I’m feeding two adults and two children, ages four and two. If you have teenagers you may need the Costco size meat packs.)
So brown up the meat, split it into two pans and make your spaghetti sauce (I like to use Garden Combo Market Pantry Sauce) with half and taco meat with the other half. Serve up the spaghetti that evening and the next night, devour your delectable tacos!!
