Serves 6 

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Cooking time: 50 minutes

Oven temperature: 200°C

• 4 medium-sized potatoes, diced

• 1 large knob of butter

• 6 rashers of bacon

• 600 g mince

• 45 ml peppadews, chopped

• ½ onion, finely chopped

• 3 ml each coriander and cumin

• 4 sprigs thyme

• 1 egg

• about 200 ml breadcrumbs

1 Boil the potatoes in salted water until done. Drain and mash to a coarse consistency with butter, salt and pepper. Set aside.

2 Grease 6 cavities of a giant muffin pan with oil and line the side of each with a rasher of bacon. Mix the remaining ingredients together and divide between the cavities.
