About this recipe: One of my all time faves! Something my mum used to make for me and I make for my kids, great change from meatloaf and good for packed lunches, picnics and quick dinners! Really good with Jacket potatoes and salad or veg.

Fantastic taste! I didnt have any carrots...and I added some shredded mature cheddar (just because cheese makes everything better!!). My only complaint is that there wasnt enough. Will make a double batch next time - 28 Aug 2012


Something else. Trie d grating some really strong chedder into this mix today, gave it a bit more flavour, came out much nicer! - 30 Sep 2009
