I have been using some of my old time recipes lately as they always seem to be enjoyed more than the modern ones I try.
They are made from the simplest ingredients that I always have on hand. Of course you can add extras to suit your own tastes. This type of meal you can sneak some vegetables in and no one will notice.
Savoury Mince Bake
1 large onion, pinch of herbs, 1 lb mince, 1 tin tomato soup(16oz), 1 cup macaroni, grated cheese and breadcrumbs.
Chop onion and fry until brown. Add mince, salt, pepper, pinch herbs and tomato soup. Simmer for 3/4 hour, adding a little water if necessary. Cook one cup macaroni according to instructions in salted water. Drain and add to the mince mixture, mixing well. Turn into a flat dish, sprinkle with grated cheese and breadcrumbs and place in oven or under griller until brown.
*I added mushrooms, a little capsicum, grated carrot and zucchini to the mix. I also added a little more noodles.
This bake was served with even more vegetables J
This recipe can be found in the 1967 CWA Fingers and Forks cook book.
As you can see this book has been well used.
