Method Prep:20min › Cook:45min › Ready in:1hr5min
Add oil to a fry pan over a medium-high heat. Cook onion, carrot and celery for 1 minute or until soft.
Turn temperature up to a high heat and add mince, breaking it apart with a wooden spoon for 5 minutes or until slightly browned
Add the flour and combine for 1 minute
Add the stock slowly, stirring continuously for 1 minute until well combined
Add the peas, passata and worcestershire sauce, stir until combined, turn heat to medium and let simmer for 15 - 20 mins.
Meanwhile, to make potato topping, add potatoes to a saucepan of boiling water with a pinch of salt until soft enough to mash. This should take 12-15 minutes.
Drain the water and transfer back to the saucepan.
Break up potatoes with a potato masher or whisk and add butter, milk, and season with a bit of salt and pepper.
Transfer your mince filling to a lightly greased oven dish and cover with mashed potato.
Lightly sprinkle with cheese and pop under the grill for 5 minutes or until the cheese has melted to your liking.
Serve steaming hot with toasted bread.
Don't be afraid to experiment with this recipe!
In the past I have added garlic, red wine, balsamic vinegar and bay leaves to the mince and sprinkled the topping with a pinch of nutmeg.
I used this recipe as a base I added sweet corn and all my left over veg - i would use more Worcestershire sauce next time though - i also had to used butternut squash mash - as I don't have enough normal potatoes - but this was really nice and easy to make
It was easy and tastes so good will be using this one again - 29 Oct 2013
