Random roast dinner Recipe! roast chicken, brussels in cheese sauce made after Xmas

Random Roast Dinner Recipe - Today's meal was a spontaneous creation using ingredients we already had on hand! Here's what I came up with: Roast Chicken, Brussels in Cheese Sauce made from reduced vegetables and cheese post-Christmas, Peas, Mushy Peas, Roasties, Root Veg Mash, Carrots, and leftover Yorkshires. To cap off the delicious dinner, we enjoyed a Rice Pudding with Chocolate.


  • Whole chicken (£3.14)
  • Brussels in cheese sauce (87p)
  • 1/6 bag of frozen peas (13p)
  • Mushy peas (32p)
  • Root veg mash (free from Olio)
  • 1/5 bag of carrots (12p)
  • Onion (6p)
  • 1/4 bag of potatoes (39p)
  • Leftover Yorkshire puddings (previously costed as free)
  • Gravy granules (16p)

Total Cost: £5.19

This wholesome and hearty meal served five at an affordable £1.03 per person. Plus, the savvy move to freeze the chicken carcass, leftover meat, gravy, and even the freshly picked blackberries showcases excellent resourcefulness. Kudos to Jimmy and the kids for the blackberry-picking adventure! 😋
