ive just gone through a really old recibe magazine and found a beef crumble! never thought of a savoury crumble before. it tastes great and best of all...... its cheap.:j


Beef crumble-
Base= 250g minced beef
generous handfull of lentils
2 diced carrots
3 diced onions
2 tbsp gravy granules
a good handfull of peas
hot water
Topping= box of stuffing
3 tbsps flour
1 tbsp butter
enough water to make crumbs
Instructions-
  1. Brown mince and onions until cooked through
  2. Add remaining vegetables, not the lentils, until starting to get tender
  3. Add gravy granules and still until well mixed off the heat
  4. Gradually add water until desired consistency. Add lentils and simmer for 10 minutes.
  5. While simmering rub all the crumble ingredients together, not including the water
  6. Add small amount of water mixing as you go until you get a nice mix of small and large crumbs.
  7. Pour the base into a ovenproof bowl and top with the crumble
  8. Bake at 190 degrees c for about 40 minutes or until crumble is golden and cooked
You can add other vegetables and vary the type of stuffing and mince.Thanks for letting me share

    Buy your bananas in bunches of 5 on Sunday. Then arrange them in order of ripeness and write a day of the week on each banana in felt pen, Monday on the ripest, Friday on the greenest to save time making those decisions on a hectic weekday morning

    Just check in with ex school cook and she seems to remember it being a basic crumble mix without the sugar, sometimes with grated cheese added or a few spices.

    I did a savoury, vegetarian crumble last night. It was completely DISGUSTING. The topping had flour, butter, nuts and cheese. I thought it would be ok but it wasn't. We threw it in the bin, b*gger the waste, and had toasted cheese sandwiches instead.

    All I would need is the carrot and the box of stuffing. I will definately be giving this one a go.
