Potato Bake

Peel and wash potatoes. Slice thinly and arrange in a greased casserole dish. Mix the milk, cream, and salt in a small jug. Pour over the potato bake and then sprinkle with cheese. Cover with alfoil and bake in a moderate oven for 45 minutes. Remove alfoil and bake for a further 15 minutes so the top can brown.

Again, Pie’s are so versatile, you can add or subtract almost anything. So long as you have a gravy base to start with, you can go with whatever takes your taste buds fancy! Try this pie with leftover corned silverside instead.

Kids help

There are always pastry off cuts when a pie is made. Let the kids make a smiley face on the pie with these offcuts, or they could cut out shapes with cookie cutters to stick on top.

If able, let the kids arrange the sliced potatoes in the dish, mix the milk and cream in the jug, pour it over the potatoes and then sprinkle the cheese.
