With the arrival of winter, it is now the perfect time to stay indoors and warm up with this tasty pie recipe.

A delicious cross between a cottage pie and sausages with mash, our sausage and mash pie will swiftly become a family favourite, plus it makes excellent left-overs (if there's any left that is).

Serves: 4-6
Prep time: 30 mins
Cooking time: 1 hour

Ingredients:
400g smoked bacon, diced
8 large sausages, cut into quarters
2 onions, sliced
3 carrots, peeled and finely chopped
2 leeks, finely sliced
2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes
200ml chicken stock
3tbsp chilli jam (optional)
1tbsp Worcestershire sauce
900g mashed potato
3tbsp cheese, grated

Method:

  1. Heat a large pan until it's very hot, then fry the bacon for 5 minutes until crisp. Drain on kitchen paper, reserving 2tbsp of the fat in the pan.

  2. Fry the sausage chunks in batches until browned but still raw in the middle, then set aside. Remove excess fat, leaving 2tbsp in the pan again.

  3. Turn the heat down slightly and add the onions, carrots and leeks, then fry gently for 10 minutes without colouring. When soft add the tomatoes, chicken stock, chilli jam and Worcestershire sauce to the pan, bring to a gentle simmer, then add the sausages and bacon.

  4. Simmer for 30 minutes, transfer to the ovenproof dish and spoon over the mash. Sprinkle over the grated cheese.

  5. Heat the oven to 190 C and bake for 30 minutes, until the mash is golden and the filling is bubbling through. Allow to stand for a few minutes before serving.
