Instantly gets Duran Duran earworm.

Tbf, what you called “mince on toast” is a wee bit more sophisticated than you implied.

Mince on toast was an occasional supper time treat as a boy. Usually in winter. In summer, we had home-grown tomatoes in white bread sandwiches, with salt and pepper. Both were/are mmmmmmh.

Don't see why not. What's the problem?

Would rather have keema naan.

There was a kerfuffle a few years ago when a yank website claimed that mince on toast was a quintessential British comfort classic.

Strangely, the Eater video was presented by a Brit (Nick Solares):

It is the hollandaise sauce that it is the problem

Mince should be cooked with carrots and onions and nothing else

Burgers are mince on toast.

Sloppy joes even moreso.

And peas, Arjuna, don't forget the peas...

And peas, Arjuna, don't forget the peas

ah, yes, my memory is going, that is exactly how my dear mother used to dish it up

Mince would be good in a toasted sandwich.

I suppose it's a bit like spaghetti bolognese on toast, but without any spaghetti, or bolognese sauce.

This thread has moved me to buy mince on the way home from work. I found it in the form of 18 meatballs, slightly seasoned.

Rather more seasoned now, and browned, and simmered in chopped tomatoes and onion with herbs and a chopped chilli pepper for as long as it took to cook some assorted pasta.

About 6 down, 6 to go and a portion in my butty box for early lunch tomorrow.

Sheffield?

If you want me to get nostalgic about mince it would be mince, mealie pudden and mash.

TheBigSmurf - 06 Sep 2021 18:28:20 (#18 of 38)

The casual reader, skimming this, might think the subject under discussion was "mice on toast."

JohnIlly - 06 Sep 2021 17:29:39 (#19 of 38)

Chacun a son gout.

Perhaps 'mince on toast' could become the new 'nonsense on stilts'.

"Mister Speaker, the Prime Minister's latest social care proposal is mince on toast -- with a wobbly egg on top."
