Method

  1. Brown the mince in a non-stick pan for a few mins, then tip into a bowl. Whizz the onions in a food processor until finely chopped (or roughly grate if you don’t have one). Tip into the pan with the oil, then cook for 2-3 mins until soft. Add the spices, cook for 1 min. Return the mince to the pan with the tomatoes and stock, then bring to a boil. Simmer for 20 mins.

  2. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6 and spoon the mince into an ovenproof dish. Arrange the baguette slices over the mince, then bake for 12 mins until the bread is crisp on top.

A good one to have on the recipe list. It's funny because my sons dislikes spag Bol but will eat this (which I think is quite similar to a spag Bol) the only bit I would say if u don't like Soggy bread cook your garlic bread seperatly rather than On top of your mince mix. I don't mind it but I no Some people it's a no no

I adapted the recipe and used 200ml stock, small tin of kidney beans, hot chilli powder and smoked paprika, really tasty and gave it more of a kick.

Made this because the mince was out and couldn't be bothered making a lasagne! I made the American version with Heinz BBQ sauce, additional tomato purée and mushrooms. I chopped the onions with a knife (I don't like graters!) and used all the stock. As I was spooning it into the dish for the oven I was thinking there was far too much stock, but actually it was great over jacket potatoes with cheese. The children loved it, although there were complaints that the bread was 'sloppy' underneath. I will definitely make again but may just use regularly baguettes and not necessarily garlic bread.

Excellent comfort food and easy to make. Added baked beans, and a squeeze of tomato and anchovy pastes, for a richer flavour. Will do again

Too watery, and overall very bland!

My kids love this. It's dead easy to make. I use BBQ sauce instead and a splash of balsamic vinegar instead of spices. I serve it with rice or spaghetti (as well as garlic bread). Great midweek meal that you can freeze too.

Didn't bother getting my food processor out. Just finely chopped the onions and sauted until soft. Used less stock as suggested and found that this was a great family friendly dish. The garlic bread was a lovely topping rather than potatoes.

Made this with vegetarian mince as I was cooking for a vegetarian. It was lacking flavour, so I added a spoon of bovril, some red wine, garlic and seasoned with salt and pepper. It was ok, nothing special, but I suggest to consider extra seasoning!
