We’ve noticed that some of the ‘tonier’ cafes around town have started offering this underrated and timeless meal again. This recipe takes your Mince on Toast to a whole new level.



  • 500g Prime Beef Mince
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 carrot, chopped
  • 1 parsnip, chopped
  • 1 celery stick, chopped
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp tomato sauce
  • 1 tbsp hot English mustard
  • pinch curry powder (you choose the intensity)
  • salt and pepper to season
  • bunch fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup flour

  1. Heat a splash of oil in a large frypan and cook the onion until soft and transparent. Add the mince and brown well for 10 to 15 minutes. Break up any large pieces.
  2. Dice carrot, parsnip and celery into 1 cm pieces, so that the vegetables cook evenly. Add vegetables to the pan and sauté with mince for a further 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Add 1 cup of warm water and simmer for 15 minutes or until the veggies are tender.
  4. Mix the flour with a little more water to make a paste, then add to the mixture and stir through well. You’ll have a lovely rich gravy as a result.
  5. Serve on a thick piece of wholegrain toast or another favourite bread.
  6. This is even better if prepared the day before. Leaving the flavours to infuse overnight creates an even better brunch experience.
