Serves 4
Syns per serving 1.5
Ready in about 55 minutes


1kg floury potatoes, such as King Edward or Maris Piper, cut into chunky chips
Low-calorie cooking spray
500g lean beef mince (5% fat or less)
1 tbsp dried oregano
1 tbsp dried parsley
1 beef stock cube
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 red onion, sliced into rings
300g tomatoes, roughly diced
75g gherkins, diced or sliced
40g reduced-fat mature Cheddar, grated
Green pepper, celery and lettuce salad, to serve


1 Preheat your oven to 200°C/ fan 180°C/gas 6. Boil the chips for 4-5 minutes, then drain well. Spread on a large, non-stick baking tray in a single layer and spray with low-calorie cooking spray. Bake for 25-30 minutes, turning once, until cooked through and golden.

2 Meanwhile, place a non-stick frying pan over a high heat. Add the mince, 2 tsp each of the oregano and parsley and crumble in the stock cube. Cook for 10 minutes (breaking up the mince with a wooden spoon) until browned, then stir in the Worcestershire sauce.

3 Spray 4 small, individual baking tins with low-calorie cooking spray. Layer up the chips with spoonfuls of the mince mixture and the onion rings, tomatoes and gherkins, while seasoning and scattering over the remaining oregano and parsley as you go. Sprinkle a quarter of the Cheddar over each, then bake for 15 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and everything is piping hot. Serve with the salad.
