Tesco Everyday Value Family Challenge winners!

  • We earn a commission for products purchased through some links in this article.
  • Goodtoknow went on the hunt for the tastiest low-cost family recipes around and you didn’t disappoint! We asked you to send in the recipe for a great meal you make for your family using Tesco’s Everyday Value ingredients, along with a tip to make it even better value, or even more tasty.

    The competition was stiff, but our four winners chosen each week impressed us with their dishes, including one a user had been making since she was a student and a meal named by the kids! We’ve also highlighted a goodtoknow star recipe for each week which we thought was extra good value. Here are the winners’ recipes, so you can see how delicious and easy they are for yourselves. And, as they use Tesco’s Everyday Value ingredients, you’ll find they’re fantastic value for money too. Enjoy making them and congratulations to all our winners!
