Recipe: easy cottage pie

This one is just a super simple student meal I make for myself and my partner, especially on a cold day! It’s basically the shepherd’s pie my mum cooks, with beef mince as it’s both cheaper and lower points. I usually serve this with lots of vegetables, gravy and yorkshire.

Total propoints per recipe: 20
Propoints per serving: 10

What you need:
250g beef mince
1 onion
2 carrots
400g potato, chopped
Dash of milk
Dash of Worcester sauce

What to do:
1. Dry fry mince with finely chopped onion and carrots.

2. Put potatoes on to boil in a different pan.

3. When the mince has browned add half pint of stock and a dash of Worcester sauce. If you don’t have any, a spoonful of tomato purée can be used instead.

4. Bring mince to the boil, then simmer for half an hour.

5. Once potatoes are soft mash them and leave to cool.

6. Spoon mince into a dish and top with potato. Fork potato lightly to give textured surface. Cook in the oven at 200 degrees for 30 minutes.
