Old fashioned mince on toast

I'm cooking for my dad while my mum is overseas and I thought I'd make him some mince on toast, which he loved growing up. I've never made it before and my dad is convinced that my Nana just fried mince and served it on toast - however I'm sure there is a bit more to it. Sadly my Nana is no longer around so I can't ask her.

Has anyone got a recipe they can share?

Savoury mince: fry off onion and mince, add beef stock or worchestire and water. Boil, simmer reduce and add peas and carrots

Cheats version, Cook 450 g mince in saucepan [finely chopped onion optional] add Maggi Oxtail soup dissolved in 1 cup water. Cook until bubbling and soup thick. Serve. Whats left over can be used for pie filling, just add extra veges.
