The thing I like about this recipe is that you don’t have to fry the onions and sausages before you put them in the casserole dish to cook – saving one step not to mention the washing up. It’s not a fancy dish, but maybe a good quick one for a busy night.
In Mum’s time lamb was a cheap and tasty meat to use, but with the cost of racks of lamb at what they are today if you’re going to cook them you might just as well push the boat out and add a great topping. I don’t think you can go wrong with this mustard, garlic and soy sauce combo spread on top.
I think filled tomatoes have gone completely out of fashion, but this recipe caught my eye as the filling of rice, bacon and cheese sounds good. Just not sure when I’d serve them though, maybe as an accompaniment to bbq steak or chops…..
My family have always loved this version of a meat loaf – the eggs make the difference. I also make smaller versions for when just my husband and I are going on a picnic or for lunch on the first day of an interstate trip.
It’s mango season and they are finally ripe, tasty and affordable here in Melbourne, so I thought it was good timing to add this recipe. I know not everyone likes the combination of fruit with meat or poultry, but the mustard, port and spring onions make it sound quite appealing.
