  • Maris Piper potatoes
  • Grated cheese of your choice
  • Butter, as much as preferred for mashed potatoes
  • Optional sliced tomatoes to decorate the top

  1. Put the oven on to 180oc
  2. Peel and slice potatoes enough for two layers of mashed potato
  3. Put in a saucepan of cold water
  4. Bring to the boil and then boil until soft (I put a knife into the potatoes to see if they are cooked but don’t let the potatoes over cook.
  5. Grease an ovenproof dish of your choice
  6. Drain the potatoes and mash them with butter
  7. Then put the lid on to keep them hot
  8. Optional step: slice and fry your onion
  9. Slice a tomato as decoration for the top of the pie
  10. In the greased dish put in a layer of cheese then put on top a layer of potato then another layer of cheese and keep layering until you have used all the potatoes and cheese
  11. Put the sliced tomato on the top
  12. Put it carefully in the oven
  13. Cook for about 20 – 30 minutes depending on your oven until brown on the top
