This is a fun way to feed a young crowd with healthy appetites, without breaking the bank. Make the Chilli Mince the day before.

- 250 g streaky bacon, cut up
- 2 onions, chopped

Heat the oil in a large frying pan and stir-fry the bacon until crispy.

Add the onion, pre-seasoned with the Green Onion Seasoning, to the bacon fat remaining in the pan and stir-fry until golden.
Add the garlic and mince and cook until crumbly (use a fork). Season with Garlic Pepper Seasoning.

Stretch each bun open and brush the inside with olive oil and Basil Pesto mixture.
Spoon 2 T (30 ml) of hot Chilli Mince over.
