This is one of my favourite meals that I remember my mother making. I loved coming home from school to it. I have never had it anywhere else. The lamb can be easily substituted with beef. A great way to use up leftovers!
Thanks for publishing this recipe. I haven't seen it since the 1980's when I got it out of a Milk Marketing Board leaflet, and used to cook it once a week. Haven't cooked it for years. Had forgotten it and lost the leaflet and just had to find it again. Good low cost recipe and makes a nice change to the potatoe version. I like mixing a bit of brown or wild rice in to just to give a bit more texture and loads of cheese of course. - 27 Feb 2014
Really inventive and different! I made this last night using some leftover roast mutton. Instead of rice I substituted pearl barley, for a bit of extra flavour, and to cut down on the carbs slightly. This dish can be adapted in so many different ways, can't wait to try it again with different herbs and spices! Perfect warming, winter food, which doesn't weigh you down or feel too stodgy. Being creative with leftovers is tricky, but this is a great recipe to add to the arsenal! - 10 Dec 2013
This was lovely, even better that all 4 boys liked it and asked for seconds. I used beef mince not lamb! - 08 Jul 2014
