Shepherds Pie is perfect if you're trying to be clever with the cash because you can make one big one and freeze it in small portions for another day. GET THE RECIPE.
We absolutely LOVE a roast dinner and it's not even on the traditional Sunday that we have them anymore. You have a choice (or mixture) of different meats or keep it vegetarian if you'd prefer. A variety of veggies is the best way to do it, with roast potatoes, Yorkshire puddings and plenty of gravy! GET THE RECIPE.

Bangers & Mash
This is one of the easiest meals on here that you can make. Again, it could be vegetarian if you decide to go for a Quorn sausage instead of a pork one. Getting a good gravy is key to making bangers and mash amazing so try to get that right! GET THE RECIPE.
Beef Stew with Dumplings
The ideal meal if you've got a few bits and bobs left over that you're not sure what to do with. It's pretty straightforward too - you only need to put some beef and vegetables in a slow cooker for a few hours. If you ever catch a cold, a hearty stew is exactly what you need to make you feel better! GET THE RECIPE.
You'll find this on most British pub menus especially in the North! Most of them include lamb (it doesn't have to) but ALL have thinly sliced potatoes on top to give it that crispy topping. Yet again this is another meal you can make in bulk to save for another day! GET THE RECIPE.
Give them a try and see how you get on. All of these hearty dishes will help you fight off those winter blues and will be exactly what you need to warm you right up!
