Mashed potatoes
Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Add the potatoes and boil over medium heat for approximately 20 minutes or until tender. TIP: The potatoes are cooked when they can easily be pierced with a knife.
Once the potatoes are cooked, drain them in a colander and return them to the pan off the heat. Mash the potatoes using a potato masher or ricer, and then add the butter and cream. Mix well, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Creamy mashed potatoes ready to be used.
To assemble, start by taking out the baking dish with Quorn Crispy Nuggets. Then, add the white sauce mixture on top of the nuggets. Next, spread the mashed potatoes over the mixture and smooth it out. Finally, use a fork to create texture on top of the mashed potatoes.
Preheat the oven to 190C. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the filling is hot and bubbly. Allow the pie to stand for 10 minutes before serving.
