On a cold winter’s day in Melbourne the idea of a lamb stew for dinner is very appealing. I love the name of this one that was published by the Herald Sun back in July 1992 – not quite sure that a shearer ever made it, but you never know it’s certainly hearty enough.
This recipe gets it’s name from the Mallee District an area in north west Victoria, but over the years I’ve seen it with lots of other names including Impossible Pie and Zuccchini slice. I suppose it’s an Australian version of a frittata, the Italian crustless quiche to which a variety of meat and vegetables are added. It’s a nice easy meal and if you make this version you’ll feel very Australian.
