>Now, doesn’t this take you back…


Savoury mince on toast is a New Zealand icon.

You take some chopped onions, fry them in the pan, add some minced meat, add some gravy and bubble away until it’s cooked, whack it on some toast and place it before your unenthusiastic children with (unveiled) threats of what you’ll do to them if they don’t eat it smartly and get off to school.

At least, that’s how I recall the procedure at the Leslie household in Kamo in the 1960s.

Right, Robby?

And still alive and well in Remuera, of all places…..
