Here are some of our weekend winner recipes from the little Dish Family Cookbook, so you can make the most of the weekend with an extra special meal. 

All of these recipes have been chosen because the whole family will love them, and the ingredients aren’t too hard to find. They also provide a fun weekend activity for little helpers.

Fish Pie

Chunks of salmon and cod in a creamy cheese sauce makes this recipe both nutritious and delicious. Your little chef will enjoy mashing the potatoes and grating the cheese. We also add a sprinkle of nutmeg for extra flavour.

Aubergine Bake

A veggie spin on Lasagne, our Aubergine Bake is full of plant power. Your little chefs can help layer the aubergine slices and mozzarella cheese, and spoon on the tangy tomato sauce. 

Roast Chicken

A Sunday roast is the perfect way to celebrate the end of the week. Little hands can help stuff the chicken with lemons and onions. Don’t forget to sprinkle the herbs on top! 


From making the tasty Bolognese, stirring the cheesy sauce to assembling the layers, this recipe is a classic for the whole family to enjoy. We add nutritious spinach to ours for one of your five a day. 

Salmon Burgers

Perfect for a Friday fish feast, our salmon and quinoa cakes are a healthy take on a burger. Little ones can help mix the ingredients and shape the patties. Serve with sweet potato chips, green veg and wedges of fresh lemon.


We hope you enjoy our weekend winner recipes with your family.
