And the winner is… Natalie Stoute! Thanks for your entry, we hope you enjoy your Peppercorn Food Company prize pack.
What is it? We’re big fans of the Peppercorn Food Company range, including sausages, burgers and meatloaves. Everything is extra lean – meaning there’s less than 3% saturated fat in each serve – and they get the Heart Foundation tick of approval, too. They’re made from fresh ingredients and are gluten free, and as a brilliant bonus, the packaging is biodegradable and can be composted. The burgers are available in traditional beef as well as a spicy Asian variety; sausages are sold as extra lean beef, pork, chicken, beef chipolatas and Italian-style; and you can buy both extra lean beef and pork meatloaves.
How much does it cost? From RRP $7.99 for sausages and burgers, at Woolworths stores.
Where can I buy it? The Peppercorn Food range is sold in Woolworths stores and leading independent supermarkets nationally.

Do we like it? Our reader roadtester, busy mum Jen, trials the Peppercorn Food Company range with her family, husband Anthony, five-year-old Oliver and baby Harrison. She whipped up delicious sausage and salad sandwiches (Oliver helped too!), fantastic homemade hamburgers, and a delicious sausage supreme pizza.

What do you find most challenging about back-to-school dinner routines?
Every afternoon when I pick Oliver up from school, the first thing out of his mouth is, “Did you bring me something to eat, Mum?” I always take along a small snack for him to eat in the car in the hope that it’ll do him till dinner time. Sometimes it does, other times he’ll continue to snack until dinner is ready, then still eat a full meal. It’s not unusual for us to have dinner done by 5:30pm during the week.
What do you look for when shopping for family-friendly foods and ingredients?
Fresh! Oliver is a fairly picky eater, so the more foods I can get Oliver involved with preparing, the more he enjoys it. I mainly just look for what I know my boys will like. I try and throw a new meal in once a week, this sometimes goes down well and other times doesn’t!
What are your kids’ favourite dinners?
Oliver loves pasta – anything with pasta and he’ll finish his plate. He also loves mashed potato, so if he gets sausages/chicken/fish with mashed potato he’ll be happy. Harrison is still on puree food, he is enjoying homemade beef with pumpkin and carrot at the moment.
What did you love about Peppercorn Food Company sausages and burgers?
All three meals we made were really nice. There was next to no fat when cooking them all, which was great, that makes you want to eat it! They all smelled great too. My main concern when cooking meals for my husband and boys is if they’ll like it – if they have a full tummy afterwards, then I’ve done good! Both Anthony and Oliver were very happy with all three meals. Their favourite was the extra lean beef chipolata, and that’ll be on our meals list from now on.
