1 Peel the potatoes, slice in half and boil until soft. Drain and mash with milk and butter to create a soft, even consistency (it should not be runny).

3 Add the mince, garlic, stock cube and water to the onion.

4 Once the mince is sealed and is a nice brown colour, add the chopped tomatoes and tomato paste and stir well. Allow to simmer for 5-10 minutes.

5 Once everything is cooked, add the mixture to an ovenproof dish.

6 Spread the mashed potato evenly over the mince mixture and sprinkle with cheese.

7 Place the dish under the grill for a few minutes and allow the cheese to melt and turn slightly golden brown.
