Beef mince 250g (9oz)
Onion 1 small, peeled and chopped
Baked beans in tomato sauce 415g can
Worcestershire sauce 2 tbsp
Dried mixed herbs 1 tbsp
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Chilled flavoured mashed potato 450g pack

1 Heat a large, dry frying pan over a high heat. Add the beef mince and onion and cook, stirring to break up the meat, for 3–4 minutes, until the meat is browned.

2 Stir in the baked beans, Worcestershire sauce, dried mixed herbs, some seasoning and a good dash of water. Simmer rapidly for 3–4 minutes, until thickened and then tip the pie filling into a deep 1.25 litre (2 pint) baking dish.

3 Meanwhile, preheat the grill to hot. Heat the mashed potato according to the pack instructions, spoon on top of the mince and rough up the surface. Pop under the hot grill for a few minutes, until golden and bubbling.

Cook’s Tip
Supermarkets sell flavoured mash, such as colcannon, in the chilled food section. Use plain mash, if you prefer.
