This is a sponsored post for Woolworths.
This tricky COVID-19 time may be putting a halt on our holiday plans, but we won’t let that stop us travelling with our taste buds! Woolworths COOK Traybakes are just the ticket you need to enjoy an imaginary holiday at your family table!
Woolworths are really delivering the goods to create easy, quick family dinners with the launch of their amazing COOK Traybake range. Deliciously inspired from all corners of the globe (Spain! Greece, Italy!), there’s something for everyone in the range.
Woolies prep … you just cook!
Unlike a regular holiday, the prep is all done for you so all you need to do is sit back, relax and let the oven do all the work for you. Dinner will be on the table in a jiffy! Or about 35 minutes or less, to be exact.
There’s fresh vegetables or sauce (or both!) included in each COOK Traybake to pack a flavoursome punch and clear, simple to follow cook instructions. The easiest cooking hack you’ll get at the supermarket – they really are as easy as removing the plastic and baking them in the oven. Some require foil over the top and some don’t – that’s about as complex as it gets.
The COOK Traybake range includes:
- Woolworths COOK Spanish Chorizo Meatball Bake 430g
- Woolworths COOK Mexican Pork & Beef Meatball Bake 500g
- Woolworths COOK Lamb Koftas with Mixed Vegetables and a Lemon & Mint Yoghurt Drizzle 500g
