COTTAGE PIE.


Heart and belly warming. True comfort food.


1 kl Beef mince.

2 sliced med onions.

2 beef stock cubes.

A little water.

Mixed vegies of your choice.

(I used sweet corn, capsicum, carrots and green beans)

500grs Sweet potato.

2 kls normal white Potato.


Method.

Peel and cut into small pieces, the potato. Cook both separately. Mash with a little butter and keep seperate.

Chop the onion and put into large frypan with beef mince, stock cubes and a little water. Stir and cook.

When the mince is cooked, drain off any juice and put into large casserole dish.

Prepare the vegies and lay on top of the mince.

Then lay the mash potato on top of that. Use one type at a time. I put the white potato around the edges and the sweet in the middle.

Top that bread crumbs, mixed herbs and grated cheese. Or, just leave with the potato's.

Then in the oven to warm. 5 mins before you want to serve, turn the oven up high to get a nice crispy effect on top.

And you will end up with this.
Next time I use two different colours in the potato's, I shall have a go at piping it on, into a better pattern.
But this was done very quickly, as I needed to feed the family NOW.

I love your two-tone potato Sally. I usually just mash the sweet in with the ordinary. Guess what I'm going to do next time!!
