We had this last night and used the red wine version - if you would prefer not to i would just say miss it out altogether and not add any other liquid in place as there is a lot of liquid in this mix anyway.
Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees once the mince is simmering...
OK, Gather all your ingredients from Mondays shopping list... carrots and onions should be diced small...Heat the oil in a heavy based pan and brown the mince and onions on a medium heat...
Drain off the excess oil and mince fat and return to pan.
Add all of the ingredients EXCEPT the flour at this point and stir well...
Once it is all combined sieve the flour into the mix and again keep stiring - this will stop the flour from forming lumps... leave to simmer for 40minutes. *preheat oven*
While the mince is simmering prepare your potatoes...Gather all the ingredients :)
Boil until they are able to be broken easily with a fork.
I knew i NEEDED one of these mashers! lol Mash with your prefered tool...fork, masher, magic squishy thing!! LOL
Add your onions, seasoning and soft cheese...
Mix until well blended.
Using a slatted spoon fill the bottom of your pie dish with the mince mix.
Place the mash mix ontop of your mince...
...spread and level with a fork.
Add your cheese and again season if you wish.
Bake in the oven for 30mins or until the cheese is browned and crispy around the edges.
Serve and enjoy :D
I didnt add the milk or cream to the potatoes as there was enough soft cheese to make it creamy :)
Let me know what you think :)
