When we were growing up Mum made this recipe often but she added a tin of sliced mushrooms into it. We ate it on cheese-toast or on top of mashed potatoes or buttered noodles… We liked it because it was fast cooking and a family favorite on evenings when everyone wanted to hurry so we could watch Masterpiece Theatre on PBS. I make it for my sons but I grate the onion on my cheese grater so it melts into the meat.My goofy sons wont eat anything that has visible onions in it.

Deliciousness on a bun! That looks really tasty Tess, thanks for sharing!
