  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a non-stick pan and fry the onion,stirring frequently, for 5 mins until softened. Add the sausages and break them up with a wooden spoon until you get a texture similar to chunky mince. Pour in the stock and simmer for 8 mins.

  3. Spoon the sausage mixture into 4 individual pie dishes. Top with the cheesy mash. You can freeze the pies for up to 2 months. Simply thaw in the fridge before baking. Bake for 25-30 mins until starting to turn golden. Top with the tomato wedges and serve with your child’s favourite veg or baked beans.

Simple and satisfying. Added a leek as I only had plain sausages which worked well. Needed a fair bit of seasoning as could have been quite plain. Will make again as it went down well with the family

This made seven toddler meals (with some leftover mash) which I froze. I'm a long-time vegan learning to cook meat for my omnivorous son and found this recipe very easy. Made with low salt veg stock instead of chicken and chucked a couple of handfuls of frozen peas into the pie mix. Next time I'll also shove in some diced carrot to stretch it a bit further. Can't comment on how it tastes myself but my son piles it away fairly enthusiastically, which makes it a winner in my book!
