|½ cup||Grated cheese|
|4 rashers||Streaky bacon, chopped|
|1||Small onion, diced|
|1||Carrot, peeled and diced finely|
|1||Celery stalk, diced finely|
|250 g||Pork mince|
|1 cup||Lentils, canned|
|250 ml||Campbell's vegetable stock|
|1||Garlic clove, crushed|
|2 Tbsp||Chopped sage|

- Heat oven to 180C. Rub the kumara with a little oil and bake for 40 minutes until soft. Allow to cool a little. Cut the kumara in half lengthwise, scoop out most of the kumara into a bowl and mash with butter and cheese, season and set aside. Place the kumara skins in to a baking dish.
- Fry the bacon in a large frying pan. Add the onion, carrot and celery and cook over a medium heat until soft. Turn up the heat, add the mince and stir-fry until brown.
- Add the lentils, stock, garlic, sage and apple sauce and simmer for 20-30 minutes until stock has reduced and lentils are nice and soft, adding more stock if necessary.
- Spoon the mince mixture in to the kumara skins. Top with the mashed kumara and bake for 20 minutes until brown on top.
