Cottage Pie Jackets



  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 250g beef mince
  • 1 tsp dried herbs
  • 400g tin of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 beef stock cube
  • 2 big baking potatoes
  • 50g grated cheddar
  • 20g butter
  • Salt and pepper
  • Cook the beef, onion, and herbs together in a large pan for about 4 minutes, then crumble in the stock cube, add the tomatoes, and pour in a tin-full of water. Season well, and cook for 20 mins to thicken the sauce.
  • Prick the potatoes a couple of times with a fork, brush with olive oil and rub with salt and pepper, and bake in the oven or microwave until cooked through and tender. Cut in half and scoop out the insides, then mix the potato flesh with cheese and butter, and season well. Put the skins cut-side up in a baking dish, and spoon half the mince into the potatoes. Top with the cheesy mash, sprinkle with the remaining cheese, and pop under the grill for 3 minutes or until golden.
