Rösti cottage pie
- 1Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat; cook onion, carrot, celery and garlic, stirring for 5 minutes or until beginning to soften.
- 2Increase heat to high, add beef; cook, breaking up with a wooden spoon, for 8 minutes or until browned. Add tomato paste and wine; simmer until wine evaporates. Add tomatoes and bay leaf, season; simmer for 45 minutes or until sauce has thickened.
- 3Transfer beef mixture to a 6cm (2½-inch) deep, 2 litre (8-cup) ovenproof dish.
- 4Preheat oven to 200°C/400°F.
- 5Peel, then coarsely grate potatoes into a large bowl. Place potato in a clean tea towel; squeeze out as much liquid as possible. Return potato to bowl; stir in butter, season. Spread potato mixture over beef mixture.
- 6Bake pie for 50 minutes or until rösti top is golden. Serve pie topped with parsley.
You can add your favourite spices to the beef mixture during cooking. You could use desiree potatoes instead of sebago.
