Baked Lamb with Cheese Crust


275g leftover roast lamb, chopped

200g butter

2 onions, thinly sliced

1 tsp dried thyme

3 bay leaves

400g chopped tomatoes

75g fresh breadcrumbs

150g cheddar cheese, grated


Heat the oven to 180C/350F/gas 4.  Melt 50g butter in a large frying-pan over a moderate heat. Add the onions and saute them until golden and soft.

Place the  onions  in  the  bottom  of a casserole dish, place the lamb on top and sprinkle over the thyme. Put in the bay leaves and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Pour in the tomatoes with their juice.

Melt the remaining butter in a large frying-pan, add the breadcrumbs and stir until the breadcrumbs are nicely browned and have absorbed all the butter.  Mix the breadcrumbs with the grated cheese and spread evenly over the tomatoes. Bake for 40 minutes, or until the crusty and all the cheese has melted. Serve the casserole immediately.
