A fun teatime treat for the whole family; jacket potatoes baked in the oven and filled with a delicious shepherds pie filling


Ingredients

  • 4 medium baking potatoes
  • 1/2 tbsp oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed
  • 250g lamb mince
  • 2 carrots, finely chopped
  • 1 celery, finely chopped
  • 200ml water
  • 1/2 tsp dried mixed herbs
  • 100g frozen peas
  • 2 tsp gravy granules
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • optional: cheese to top

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180c. Wash the potatoes and pierce them several times with a fork. Place on a baking tray and bake in the oven for 50-60 minutes until cooked through.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a frying pan. Add the onions and garlic and gently cook for 3-4 minutes. Add the lamb mince and cook until brown.
  3. Add the carrots, celery, water and dried herbs and cook on a simmer for 10 minutes. Add the frozen peas and gravy granules and mix well. Cook for a further 3-4 minutes before taking off the heat.
  4. When the potatoes are cooked slice the top off each of the potatoes. Scoop out about 3/4 of the filling inside the potatoes and put this into a bowl. Add the butter and mash it with a fork.
  5. Spoon the shepherds pie filling into each of the baked potatoes and top with a large dollop of the mashed potato. Top with cheese and serve.
