Super Tasty Traditional Cottage Pie

It has to be said, the only thing I like about going into the colder months is Christmas and the food I can cook, so after a pretty nippy and windy Manchester day I decided on Cottage Pie for dinner.

I sent PK for the ingredients and it wasn’t without its usual drama after he forgot most of items on the list, including the mince!

Dinner was served at 9:45pm, but it was worth the wait!

As always, there is a printable recipe for this super tasty traditional cottage pie at the bottom of this post.

How to make Cottage Pie

I made double the mince mix needed so I could freeze some, leaving plenty to make another one on a CBA day where I’ll just have to add the mashed potato.

Ingredients

  • 750g minced beef
  • 4 baking potatoes
  • 1 onion
  • 1 tin of carrots
  • 1 tin of peas
  • 1 tin of chopped tomatoes
  • 200ml beef gravy
  • 2 tsps minced garlic
  • 2 tsps mixed herbs
  • 2 tbsp Worcester sauce
  • Salt & pepper

Method

Equipment I used

Final word

This is the perfect recipe to make in bulk to make sure there is plenty of food in the freezer, meaning you are less likely to go for extensive ready made food or take aways.

It’s also a right treat now it’s starting to get colder outside!
