Meaty meat

When I mention the word "meat", I mostly mean mince (minced Beef, Lamb or Pork), stews and pork bangers. Although I have added other meaty recipes to this site, it is only on very rare occasions, like on Christmas day that we'll eat roasted lamb, beef or pork. Enjoy...


500g minced meat (Beef or Lamb)

3/4 cup cheddar cheese

1 egg

3/4 cup bread crumbs

1 finely chopped onion

1 teaspoon Worcester Sauce / Fish Sauce

Tomato sauce

2 tsp crushed garlic

Mix altogether except for tomato sauce and 1/4 of the cheese. Season to taste. Shape into a loaf and place it into an ovenproof dish. Bake for about 30 minutes at 200deg celsius; pour off the excess oil. Pour a large amount of tomato sauce over the loaf and sprinkle with the rest of the cheese. Bake for a further 20 minutes. Serves 4


4 eggs

8 pork sausages

bread crumbs


Hard boil the eggs. Using 2 sausages per egg, remove sausage meat from the skin and mould the meat around the boiled egg. Roll it in bread crumbs and fry on medium heat in oil until golden brown. Keep turning as sausages burn easily. Serve with mashed potato.


These quick and easy burgers are something that I make when I feel really lazy - usually this is on a Friday.
