This is my favourite food, I love this dish and I like helping my mum make it so I decided to make it for the competition.


First I peeled the potatoes and boiled them in a pot, next I boiled the mince meat until it was brown in a separate pot. When the potatoes were soft and ready I poured the milk and butter on top and mashed it up. Then I made the gravy with hot water from the kettle, I mixed the gravy and cornflour into the mince meat together, when it was ready I poured the mixture into a dish, I poured the mash potatoes on top and put it in the oven for 30 minutes. When it was ready I put the vegetables and gravy for decoration.


5 Irish potatoes
2 teaspoons of gravy granuales
1 tablespoon of cornflour
100 grams of minced lamb meat
1 tablespoon of butter
1/4 cup of milk
