Sing For Your Supper Cottage Pie

It's one I prepared earlier as I knew I was going to be in a teachers meeting sitting on tiddly chairs . So I wanted to be able to come home and not to have to start cooking .


Mince 500g or more 


BBQ sauce 

Chili tomato sauce 

Stock cube 

Potatoes enough to cover the cottage pie.

Half a packet of Kurly kale .


Brown the mince off .

Add a squeeze of BBQ sauce , Chilli tomato sauce , artiscally crumble a stock cube into the mince .

Add to a oven proof dish add a a few 100ml of water enough to make a gravy .

Place in the oven for around 30 minutes .

Boil and mash potatoes.

Combine about half a packet of Kurly kale with the mash.

Then plonk the mash the mash on top , sculpting a pretty pattern if you wish with a fork.

Then heat up when you need it .

Be a devil sprinkle some cheese on it.

There you have a quick frugal supper .


  1. mind and make enough for 2 days and one can go in the freezer. You made me laugh, a woman who cooks the same way that I do.....plonk the mash on top......lol

  2. I like meals that can be preprepared and warmed up when required.Perfect time savers.

  3. Loving all these hearty winter recipes about at the moment! There's nothing nicer than coming home and not having to prepare dinner either! :)

  4. Well if you had a teacher's meeting on tiddly chairs, you'd need a hearty dish to come home to!

  5. I like the sounds of the twist - may avoid giving it to the kids though lol

  6. This is the sort of food my boys love, including the kale.

  7. oooh I do love a good old hash dish, my favourite!

  8. Love how simple this sounds - perfect winter, warming food!

  9. I love cottage pie, could just eat a huge plate of it right now x
