Comfort food

Cheese and potato pie

I am actually lying when I call this a pie, it has no pastry, but since I was a child we called it a pie, and it was just as comforting then. This is amazing comfort food, either served on its own or as a side you’ll be making this whenever you’ve got the chance, it’s irresistible! It’s so easy and it’s got what you want when you’re having a bad day, or the weather is having a bad day – Cheese and potato!


1 x large potato

1/4 onion

1/2 tsp (teaspoon) salt

1/2 tsp mustard powder

1 tsp ground pepper

40g mature cheddar cheese – it can be any good melting cheese you like


Cut your potato into quarters (don’t bother peeling) and put into a pan with the onion and salt, boil until fully cooked, and drain


Add the mustard, pepper and most of the cheese and mash until smooth

With a spoon beat the potato to become creamy


Put into an oven proof dish and ‘fluff up’ the top with a knife (to create crunchy bits!)


Put on the rest of the cheese and bake in the oven at 200 fan for 15 mins

That is it! I told you it was easy!!

Serves 2 as a side
