Love, love, love this in our house! I add wholegrain mustard and season quite well, or it can be a little bland. Makes a super pie with pastry, as well. Good comfort food and a nice alternative to cottage pie.

This was delicious. I used peas instead of sweetcorn and also used a few more spoons of creme fraiche. Was not thick enough so next time may use a little cornflour to thicken.

This was a very tasty dish considering how quick and easy it was to make. I took others' suggestions on board by adding mushrooms and garlic to the sauce and cheese on top of the mash. The whole family enjoyed, so will definitely be making it again.

Cooked this last week for myself and my husband. A friend turned up and joined in the meal too. Went down very well all round & I have bought more creme fraiche to make it again this week! :)

Very bland despite seasoning and adding carrots and garlic. There also seemed to be quite a lot of the stock left so I ended up straining this off before adding the mash potato topping - which when mixed with creme fraiche tasted not only bland but distinctly reminded me of school dinners. Not a winner in my household in my opinion.

A great mid-week meal. I made it veggie by adding Quorn chicken and I didn't bother with the stock, I just added more crème fraîche. I also added some wholegrain mustard, tasty!
