- 8 medium potatoes - peeled and diced
- 1 onion - peeled and diced
- Splash of milk
- Knob of butter
- 200g of grated mature Cheddar cheese
- Salt and black pepper
Pre-heat the oven to 190°C, 170°C fan, gas mark 5.
Boil the onions and potatoes together until they are soft, 15-20 minutes.
Drain and mash together with the butter and milk and add 2/3 of the cheese.
When everything has combined together well, season and spoon the mixture into a baking dish and cover with the remaining cheese.
Bake in the pre-heated oven until the cheese has melted and is starting to turn a nutty brown, around 30 minutes.
Serve with seasonal vegetables and some nice thick rich gravy.
