Another of our favourite comfort foods is that classic British dish, the humble shepherds pie.
This clever idea is great for individual, party size portions.
Bake some large potatoes until the skins are crisp and make up your shepherds pie mix. When the potatoes are crisp, carefully halve each one scoop out the soft innards to create little ‘boats’
Place the scooped potato innards into a bowl, using a fork or potato masher, mix in a pinch of salt, some butter and black pepper.
Fill the emptied potato shells with your meaty mix and top each one with a scoop of your seasoned potato mix.
Sprinkle with cheese and pop under the grill for just a few minutes until the cheese has melted. Scatter with a few finely sliced spring onions.
Viola! Mini shepherds pie bites.
