Savoury Mince

This savoury mince recipe is an easy dinner, comes packed full of veggies, and my kids absolutely love it!

Savoury mince makes me a little nostalgic – when I was younger I visited my Nan every Tuesday for dinner, and more often than not she served us savoury mince with mashed potato and vegetables. These days I often make my own kids savoury mince for dinner, although when I do I usually serve it on toast – that’s the great thing about this recipe, it’s so versatile!
