Cooking PotMETHOD

  1. Boil the potatoes in salted water until tender, about 5 minutes, then peel and mash. Add the seasoning, butter, spring onion and chopped egg. Spread about half of this mix into a buttered oven proof dish.

  2. In a wide hot pan sear the mince with the vegetable oil, break it up with a fork to remove any lumps. Add the onion, garlic and seasoning. Continue to cook for a further 10 minutes.

  3. Finally add the tomatoes and a couple of spoons of water. Simmer for 10 minutes then leave to cook a little. Remove any excess grease with a spoon then pour this into the dish.

  4. Cover with the remaining potato mix. Bake in the oven at 200ÂșC for 15 minutes.
