Fabulous, classic comfort food.
The potato topping can be replaced by a mix of potato and sweet potato or parsnip for a delicious twist (and a lower GI score!).
Altered ingredient amounts. Delicious! I used only sweet potatoes and it tasted great! I used a tiny bit more mustard and it gave it just the right kick for us. After letting everything simmer I drained the fat off the meat mixture which I felt was helpful. Also we topped it with mature cheddar cheese. It was so good! Will definitely be making this one again. - 14 Jan 2011
It was a joy making this dish! I am still very new to cooking, and the end product was both delicious looking and tasting. Definitely will make again. - 05 Apr 2012
Used different ingredients. i left tomatoes and tomato puree out and used just carrot and onion added to mince ,i mashed carrot and turnip and put on top of mince ,i also added carrot and turnip to mashed potato ,this is such a tasty way to enjoy cottage pie and for me more substantial - 08 Jan 2009
