The multi mince was a little watery. But the pie was good. Even my 4year old picky eater had a second serving. I added Worcestershire sauce n tomato purée as suggested by one of the reader.

Good recipe - added some tomato puree and Worcester Sauce to improve the flavour. The spring onions really added to the flavour. Love the multi-mince - have used it for bolognese also.

Really liked the spring onions and mushrooms in this dish and i also added a little bit of butter to the mash (the same time as the milk). I served it with frozen garden peas and it was lovely, definately one to make again.

Lovely recipe. But I found there was too much topping so now use fewer potatoes.
