A beef version of our popular chicken and bacon parmi loaf!

Great recipe but tweaked it a tad out of convenience. Switched crumbs for coles brand “stuffing mix”. Added fresh garlic and sugar to the sauce. Delish 👌🏽

We thought that this looked tricky, but actually turned out to be quite simple to make. Only problem with my 5 eaters was that 500g mince really wasn’t enough as they all wanted seconds. And I didn’t have any pasta sauce, so just used a tin of chopped tomatoes. I used baking paper but found that it was quite messy, so next time will try it without as the bacon didn’t seem to stick at all, especially with the saucy tomatoes. Can’t wait to try it again.
