Step 1
Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Cook onion, carrot, celery and garlic, stirring, for 5 mins or until onion softens. Add mince. Cook, stirring with a wooden spoon to break up any lumps, for 5 mins or until mince changes colour.

Spoon over the potato mixture and brush with extra melted butter. Place on a baking tray. Bake for 25-30 mins or until the tops are golden and the filling is heated through.
