To Make Baskets
Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium-high heat, add the mince, breaking up with the back of a spoon to form small pieces until cooked thoroughly and no longer pink.
Stir in tomato purée, pasta sauce and herbs.
Bring to the boil and simmer gently for 30 minutes until reduced and thick, but still moist. Set aside.
Preheat the oven to 200 C.
Line greased muffin tins with slices of fresh bread (crusts removed).
Sandwich bread is best.
If using toast bread, roll it out and flatten the bread first.
Fill each with some of the mince mixture and top with a slice of tomato and a little grated cheese.
Bake for 10-15 minutes until golden brown.
Serve with a green salad or seasonal vegetables.
