How To Make Cottage Pie
Peel and chop the potatoes and pop them onto boil.
Dice the onions.
Put them in a large pan to fry.
Add the mince to the same pan.
Add four stock cubes.
And the bottle of Worcestershire sauce.
Then cover the mince mixture with flour.
Keep stirring it until the mince is browned.
Then half fill oven and freezer proof dishes with the mince mixture.
Once the potatoes are soft drain off the water.
Then add a generous dollop of butter.
And about 500g of grated cheese.
And mash it all together.
Spoon the mashed potato over the mince mixture and drag a fork over the top to make lots of lovely ridges that will brown in the oven.
Oven cook your pie for about 40 minutes, you’ll know it’s ready when it’s piping hot throughout and the top has those lovely crusty brown bits.
We like it with veggies or baked beans, today Little Miss requested both and I couldn’t bring myself to tell a four year old she couldn’t have more veg, so we had our cottage pie with broccoli, sweetcorn and baked beans.
