10 tips for next level cottage pie

Simple and delicious, cottage pie is a family favourite. Read our tips for enhancing the basic elements of mince, mash and gravy to make an impressive, layered centrepiece.

There is nothing pretentious about the cottage pie. Originally created as a way of using up leftovers, this simple dish of mashed potatoes, mince and gravy is the definition of comfort in a bowl. We’ve taken this humble pie to the next level by giving it defined layers, a fluffier mash and a cheesy mustard rarebit topping. Serve with peas and an extra jug of gravy on the side for good measure. Now all that's left to do is grab a spoon and dig in!
