I would be interested in a recipe also.Hope you don't mind.

i dunno exactly the method. but my sherlock holmes powers of deduction tells me that maybe its just an intensely seasoned mince and egg pattie coated in flour, then dipped in a cheesy, white sauce batter, then coated in breadcrumbs before hitting the fry pan. and cooked like a chicken kiev.

I'd make it with leftover lasagne that has been in the fridge overnight, it would be way easier to handle.

Cut it into squares then flour, egg and crumb it, pan fry until golden then bake until fully heated.

I can't remember exactly how toppers are but I seem to think they have mashed potato on the inside top layer?? So make your lasagne with potato on the top and pasta on the bottom for strength.

I googled lasagna toppers and came up with nothing. My husband loves these so I will be keeping an eye on this thread

yea the ones i bought last night were mince on the bottom and cheesey sauce on the top and rolled in breadcrumbs i think and fried..might be a trial and error type thing

I'd be looking at adapting meat croquette recipes.Make the filling, let it cool and set, cut to size, then batter and crumb thoroughly.

the breadcrumbing would be done a couple of times, cold lasagne cut into squares, dip in egg then into crumbs, chill and repeat a couple more times. then either shallow fry or just re-heat in oven,

Yep.... Make the lasagna with less layers than usual...ensuring you start and finish with a pasta layer... chill and cut into squares... then I'd be inclined to pop the squares into the freezer for 30 minutes or so.... flour, egg, crumb, egg, crumb... then chill well to "set" the coating...

I use to buy Lasagne Toppers in Coles some years ago, but not anymore. Why cant you buy Lasagne Toppers in Sydney anymore. I was in Queensland a month ago and they still sell them there and i must say they are as lovely as i remmember then to be.

It's a ground meat layer then pasta and cheese mashed topping then through a batter then a crumb then batter again and another crumb, then quickly fried then quickly frozen.

Re Lasagna Toppers
I've been trying to find them in Syd.
They sell them at Campbells Cash N Carry at Northmead.
They are so delicious.
The cheesy layer is not potatoe, it's like chopped Mac n cheese.
They cost around $25 for 16. 2kg box.

Box of 16. Is around $25
Box is 2kg

The last time I ate a lasagne topper, I crapped my pants about 15 minutes later. BE CAREFUL!

Lasagna Toppers are made by Top Hat in Queensland and are very hard to get as they wont sell their frozen produce online
