Leek and Ground Beef Ovendish


So today I felt like making an old time favourite dish. I've been making this for years now and still love it but somehow haven't made it the last couple of months. This dish can easily be prepared and popped into the fridge before baking when you know you have a busy day the next day, that's how I normally make it!

Leek and Sausage Meat Ovendish (serves 2)
250 grams ground beef (also known as hamburger or sausage meat)
300 grams leek, julliened
300 grams mashed potatoes (cold)
2 medium bananas, sliced
1 tsp curry powder
1/4 cup water
100 grams grated cheese
Start by browning the ground beef in a pan without or with very little butter: the meat contains enough fat on it's own. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Divide the meat evenly over the bottom of the ovendish.

Then stew the leek in the fat of the beef, add the curry powder and the water. Add salt and pepper to taste. Stew untill all the water has evaporated.
Distribute the leek evenly over the ground beef in the ovendish.
Top the leek with the sliced bananas.
Divide the cold mashed potatoes over the leek and sprinkle the cheese on top.
Pop into a preheated oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 45 minutes.
Enjoy!!

I echo Natalia's comment. The banana's seem very bizarre but I trust you've made it that way many times.

I was also curious to know if the potatoes are the powdered mased poatoes you add water to or mashed from previously boiled potatoes.

I've so many recipes bookmarked and I'm still trying to decide waht to make for this month's taste and create.

Fantastic blog.
