Method

  1. Boil the swede and potatoes in salted water for about 20 mins until completely tender, then drain well. Return to the pan under a very low heat for a few mins to dry out. Off the heat, bash the veg into a chunky mash with half the butter, a touch of salt and lots of pepper.

  2. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Grease an ovenproof frying pan with a splash of oil and line the pan with the pancetta so it meets in the middle (like the stripes on the Union Flag). Press the veg into the dish (you can get up to this stage up to a day ahead and keep in the fridge). Dot with the remaining butter, then bake for about 40 mins until crisp and golden. Remove from the oven, turn out onto a board and cut into wedges.

Made this to go with Haggis for a Burns Night meal and it was delicious. I served them both with the Hairy Bikers whisky cream sauce, and the whole lot was wonderful, all be it about 3 million calories a mouthful with the double cream sauce and butter in the neeps'n'tatties cake! Will definitely be making it again.

This is a lovely gadget side dish. I used smoked streaky bacon and it worked very well. Will be making this again.
