Kickass Cottage Pie

Laura has always been a little unsure of herself in terms of her abilities in the kitchen. It's not that she can't cook; it's that she's had some misadventures in the kitchen at various points in time and this has made the people she cooks for (i.e. her family) naturally cautious, some would say overly so, when she decides to cook for them. They do like to remind her (and me) of one particular incident in her cooking past when she made something, shall we say, unpalatable. And despite the fact that I've heard the story a hundred times they still tell it with gusto as if I'd never heard it before. Well, hopefully all that is about to change, when I relate to you the tale of...

Laura's Kick-Ass Cottage Pie!

It was a day like any other in the household - people shopping, doing chores, playing Xbox, watching TV...

Laura decided she was in the mood to make a nice cottage pie. She had gone to Waitrose to buy a nice casserole/pie dish that was on offer, and she procured all the ingredients, came home and got cooking.

Her cottage pie contained all the traditional ingredients - the nice beefy tomatoey rich meaty layer on the bottom, and the top layer of mashed potato. But then came two slightly UNtraditional ingredients which made it amazing.

Grated Cheddar cheese....

and crushed Doritos!
Pop it in the oven till it's nice and bubbly, and voila! There ya go!

  1. So ... is this recipe a government secret?

    Or are you going "spill the beans" so to speak?


Come on and chew the fat!
