No fuss, Just yummmmmmm!

    50 min

    Not a cottage pie, not a shepherd's pie it's just yummmmm! Extremely tasty, very lazy laid back cooking, just chuck it in and see. Easy adaptable recipe for one person to as many as you have, just adjust the ingredients to suit you and go for it. Serve with veg of your choice. Depending on how many you are cooking for either halve or add to my basic amount.

    Lovely quick and easy meal I added a sprinkle of sage and onion stuffing as well and instead of herby tomatoes I used used plain tomatoes and added a dried mixed herbs  -  06 Feb 2013


    Something else. I ended up putting it under the grill for the last few minutes to brown the cheese topping.  -  25 Apr 2009


    This was easy to make and the entire family enjoyed it. The cheese on the bottom and top added nice flavour.  -  25 Apr 2009
