Minced beef cobbler - fry the mince with onions, mushrooms, or whatever veg you have to hand, add some tinned tomatoes and herbs, bubble for half and hour and then put into a casserole dish. Then rub 3 oz fat into 6 oz flour, add salt and pepper and even some grated cheese if you like, add enough milk to make a dough, and then put balls of the dough mixture all around the edge of the casserole dish. Stick it in the oven and bake it for about half an hour.

225g/8oz minced beef
1 mediun onion, peeled and chopped
125g/4oz mixed frozen pepper or fresh
125g/4oz mushrooms
400g/14oz can of tomatoes
200g/7oz can of baked beans
1 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
little oil for frying

1. Fry the mince beef in a drop of oil then add the chopped onion and cook until soft.
2. Add your mixed peppers and mushrooms.
3. Cook for 3 minutes then add can of tomatoes and baked beans and simmer on the stove.

i leave out the mushrooms as i dont like them and just add more peppers. And i use 2 big tins of chopped tomatoes and one big tin of baked beans. Makes a really yummy meal. can be served with rice, jacket potato, mash, chips, most things really

sweetmonkey , thats sounds yummy
wwb, that reminds me of home.
Binkie I live in Spain, so we now have a reason to call it Spanish rice, hahaha!

what about a sort of spag bol but then plop it into a lasagne dish, throw over lots of cheese (mozzarella, parmesan, whatever you have) and whisk in a couple of eggs. yum when it's crispy on top straight from oven. it's a bit like a lazy woman's lasagne. ish.

lucy5 Thu 04-Aug-05 16:19:56

the lazier the better hahaha!

Iklboo Thu 04-Aug-05 16:24:02

A bit like hercules said to make the burgers but roll into small balls - you can add some finely chopped onion or some herbs too. Mould the balls around a small cube of cheese & then shallow fry in olive oil or bake in the oven.

Sounds lovely, I stuff my burgers with blue cheese when we bbq.

Shepherd's Pie

Or, one of DH's fave comfort-type foods, a bit yorkshire pudding full of mince and onions, with thick gravy topped with some mash potatoes, and then popped under grill for a few minutes to crisp up.

trefusis, if you do deluxe burgers - just posh mince (eg M&S organic steak mince) without any filler or egg or anything - they don't fall apart (I find).

Topping I love: bunch of sauerkraut, slice of emmenthal on top of that, under the grill for a bit, serve with mocked-up "Russian" dressing (mixture of tomato puree, horseradish & Hellmans).
