Preheat the oven to 100 C. Finely chop the onion, carrots and green pepper.
Cook in a pot in the canola oil until soft.
Add the garlic and cook for a further 5 minutes.
Add the mince and break it up whilst it browns.
Add the rosemary and origanum.
Add the tomato puree and the whole peeled chopped tomatoes, and cook for about 5 minutes.
Add the stock and turn down the heat to a simmer. Let this cook for about an hour with the lid on.
Take the hotdog rolls and cut them in half. With the flat side down, cut off the top and scoop out the bread inside to create a 'bunny'or hole.
Warm the bunnies in the oven for about 10 minutes. When the mince is done, add the frozen peas.They will warm through very quickly.
Check your seasoning and add salt and pepper if needed.
Take the warm bunnies out of the oven and fill with mince.
You can add cheese on top and grill if you wish.
Two to three bunnies per plate.

To build-a-bunny: Make different fillings and the kids can fill their bunnies however they wish! eg: mince, grated cheese, baked beans, corn, tomato sauce, cottage cheese, ham, baby tomatoes, carrots, green beans, mushrooms.
