Tasty and so easy. I used beef instead of lamb and it was hearty at the time and I went to bed feeling full but was hungry in the morning so didn't feel like I'd had a massive dinner the night before.
Very good.

I used beef mince instead of lamb. My wife thought it was very tasty and so did I. Next time I'll be trying it with pasta. Thumbs up to this one.

Use beef mince instead of lamb, spoon onto a slice of toast and top with a fried or poached egg. My partner pulled his nose up the first time I served this but absolutely loved it

Why not make an enormous batch, divide into small portions and freeze for use with baked potato, pasta, cottage pie etc, etc. An Anthony Worral Thomson standby mince, in fact!

This was a real hit with me and my partner. We were getting a bit fed up with the same meals for tea, so tried some new recipes. Very easy to make and really yummy!!

Why the cheese, when you already have your protein in the mince? The carbs is obviously the potato, so we need more veg in there.
I'd go with either peas and sweetcorn, or maybe cook some broccoli then cu it down into really wee florets. Or even do a twist to Bubble and Squeak, and get some ligthly cooked cabbage (or spinach or kale) into the potato, then the mince over the top.

That way, you can have your cheese at one of your other meals - giving variety, dairy requirements, veg portions towards 5-a-day, and whatever else I've forgotten.
