This a hearty, warming family dish and it's so easy to prepare and can be adapted. Serve with red cabbage or beetroot.
This is really good with lamb too, you can add any vegetables you want. Try tinned tomatoes, leek, celery and parsnips, You can also experiment with the crust, add some grated Cheddar, cayenne pepper and dry mustard. Or simply add a little extra butter and less water for a richer crust. Or buy shop bought shortcrust pastry for when you're in a rush.
