  • 1 lb minced beef
  • 1 oz dripping fat from roasted meat or oil
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 1 oz plain flour All purpose
  • 1 level tsp salt
  • 1 beef bouillon cube stock cube
  • 1/2 pint hot water
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

for the topping

  • 4 slices white bread medium sliced
  • 2 oz butter
  • 2 oz Cheddar cheese grated


  • In a saucepan, fry the onion in the dripping until softened and beginning to brown.
  • Add the meat, flour and salt and stir over fairly high heat to seal the meat.
  • As the meat begins to brown, stir more frequently to prevent it from sticking to the pan. Cook for about 5 minutes.
  • Mix the bouillon cube with the hot water and add the Worcestershire sauce.
  • Stir this into the meat and bring to the boil.
  • Cover with a lid or foil and simmer on low heat for about 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
  • Place the cooked mince in a shallow heatproof dish and keep hot.
  • Cut the crusts off the bread and cut the rest into small dice about 1/4 in. (0.6cm) square.
  • Melt the butter in a frying pan and gently fry the bread, turning it to coat the croutons with butter until lightly coloured and crisp.
  • Remove from the heat, quickly stir in the cheese and immediately place all ingredients on top of the mince.
