We’ve picked some of our favourite from the Mr. Lid kitchen to share with you…quick to prep and easy to store in any of our Mr. Lid premium containers to ease your weeknight stress.

Supercarb Loaded Sweet Potatoes. 

Want a super simple and satisfying make-ahead meal - my daughter loves these after rowing training? Bake a batch of 4 sweet potatoes ahead of time and store them in our Mr. Lid Premium salad size container in your fridge. They reheat beautifully, and can be topped with anything for a fast and fresh weeknight dinner.

Salmon Cakes with Spring Green Salad

We try to have fish at least once a week in the Mr. Lid kitchen. These fresh salmon cakes are a delicious freezer staple and are so simple my daughter now makes them her self. Simply form the salmon mixture into patties and freeze on a lined baking sheet in our Mr. Lid Premium XL. Or pop them individually in one of our Mr. Lid 1/2 cups for a quick easy snack, then freeze for up to three months. Thaw in the fridge overnight before frying.

Balsamic Meat Loaf with Garlicky Beans and Greens

Meat loaf is on of my favourite mid week meals. I always have a stock of these balsamic mini meatloaves in my freezer. I usually pop 3 or 4 in one of our Mr. Lid Premium 4 cup containers for easy defrosting mid week. Divide the meat mixture into four good hand fulls and shape into loaves. Freeze in your Mr. Lid container for up to three months. When you're ready to eat, thaw them in the refrigerator overnight.
