Tip

This is great for children from 12 months of age. You can make up individual size portions in ramekins & freeze them. This recipe will make about 8 childrens sized portions. 

Also instead of regular potato as the topping, you can use sweet potato or a combination of both.

Great, everyone loved it. I double the recipe and it just squeezed into the thermomix.  I also added a bit more Worcestershire sauce!

I'm vegetarian, but my family loved it. Like others suggested I cut back the liquid and it was perfect.

Awesome. I did mash brocolli and cauliflower instead of potato (cut out certain carbs) and put a little cheese on top... Very tasty Smile Cooking

This is a great recipe and topped with the EDC mashed potato is an absolute winner. I reduced the water down to 250g and cooked it with the steamer basket ontop, not measuring cup, and the consistency was perfect. I also added some zucchini, carrot and peas to it, and I would recommend that to sneak in some extra veges. Will be making this one again.

Yummy thankyou but I too will put less water in next time Smile

Made this last night, thoroughly enjoyed by the whole family.  Will be making this again.  Smile

Hi,  if freezing this in ramekins would i defrost before putting in oven or cook straight from frozen? Sorry i am not used to using frozen food but i am going away and need to make up some meals for kids/hubby. thank you.

Any chance of a vegetarian tweak? Smile

I added peas/corn/zucchini to this and as the supermarket didn't have the mince I wanted and I didn't have the time, I cut my meat into small pieces. Added Sweet potato to the mash. I also reduced water to 200ml and added 1.5tbs cornflour with 30 seconds to go.

Yummo. Even the fussiest thought it tasted ok [even with the mushrooms] next time will reduce the liquid more and loved the meat a little chunky so will do that again. Smile

This recipe is delicious. I used the basket on top to allow the steam to escape, which made the sauce thicker. Thanks will make again. Big smile

Have made this a few times now and enjoyed each time. I "hid" a few more veggies in it (carrot, zucchini) and the kids loved it.

The whole family loved this one. Red capsicum adds a wonderful flavour!

Very tasty thanks... I also reduced the water and substituted mushrooms for carrots and added a little cheese on top  Laughing out loud

My family loved this meal. I did tweak it slightly .......i left out the mushrooms and replaced with a carrot, 1 zucchini and a few fresh tomatoes, skins removed. As per other comments, I reduced to water quantity by 100g and added a table spoon of corn flour to thicken, once the meat had cooked. I also added some additional herbs, tbsp fresh rosemary and thymeplus sea salt to taste. With 10 mins left to cook I added 3/4 cup of frozen peas (need to get as many veggies into the kids!!!). Finally since I didn't have any potatoes (shame on me!) I served it on a bed of brown rice with grated Parmesan on top) . Thanks for this great base recipe, I'll be adding this to my favorites!!

Great flavours, so easy & whole family loved it!! Definitely decrease water by 100ml (thanks for tip everyone) or even more depending if you add extra  ingredients (I added some zucchini & tomatoes I wanted to use up, these added to the water content, so I had to reduce further at the end & thicken with a little gravy flour). Definitely making again!! Smile

Tasty recipe, so easy!  Thanks for sharing. 

Made last night was so yum. Changed a few things. Added 200g mushrooms, 1tbs of gravox, used beef stock not veg  and kept the water at 300g as we like a little bit runny to soak up garlic bread! Fantastic!

I made this a couple nights ago. Really nice flavour. I also reduced water by 100g. Wink

We loved this! I made the mash first, using the TCB recipe, and stored it in the thermoserver. I took the advice of rochelle and used 100g less water - it was perfect! EVeryone gutsed it down! Will definitely be using this one again.

Thanks!

Laughing out loud

I made this for dinner last night. The flavour was beautiful (and all demolished by the family) but the meat mixture was too 'wet' for a pie. Would suggest backing off the water by 100g or so.
