Squish all your ingredients until fully combined and your mince has a ‘mushed’ texture. Roll it out on a floured surface to a thickness of 1cm and use your chosen cutters (we went for the classic Tyrannosaurus Rex, Triceratops and Diplodocus) to cut your dinosaur shapes. Next, line up your bowls to pané.

First dust your dinosaurs with seasoned flour, then into the egg, and finish in the breadcrumbs. Add to a lined baking tray and spritz with oil/cooking spray. Bake in a preheated oven at 190ºC/375ºF/gas 5 for 25 minutes, turning halfway through to get an even golden colour.

Serve with all the 90s classics (smiley faces and ketchup) and tuck in.
