1 tsp ground paprika
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
500g minced lamb
1 egg
4 cups freshly diced tomatoes
1 tsp basil, finely chopped
1/8 tsp salt

  1. Preheat a fan-forced oven to 180°C. In a medium sized pan on medium/high heat fry onion and bacon in oil for 5 minutes or until onion is tender. Add the sage, paprika, salt and pepper and cook for a further 2 minutes. Remove pan from heat and allow to cool.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine cooled bacon mixture, egg and minced lamb and mix well.
