How to cook it

Place the mince, onion, garlic, thyme, oregano, zest, cinnamon, pine nuts, breadcrumbs, egg, salt and pepper together in a large mixing bowl and mix until well combined. Cover and refrigerate until required, ideally at least 2 hours, to allow flavours to meld.

For the slaw, add all the ingredients together in a medium bowl, mixing until well combined. Cover and set aside until required.

Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Line a baking tray with baking paper.

Heat a char-grill pan over medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes. Meanwhile shape the kangaroo mixture into eight equal sized patties, spray both sides with olive oil and cook patties for 3-4 minutes on each side. Place patties on prepared baking tray and cook in preheated oven for a further 10 minutes.

To serve, halve bread rolls, then layer with wild tomato chutney, kangaroo pattie and top with apple & fennel slaw.
