The goodness of our cottage pie lies beneath a cheesy mash topping. Beef mince bubbles in rich stock, ramping up the flavour before serving with broccoli.

1 Project Heinz Cottage Pie V.2

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7

Boil a kettle

Peel the potatoes and cut them into small bite-sized pieces

Add the chopped potatoes to a pot of boiled water, bring to the boil over a high heat and cook for 10-12 min or until fork-tender

Once done, drain and return to the pot to steam dry

2 Project Heinz Cottage Pie V.2

While the potatoes are cooking, re-boil a kettle

Peel and finely chop the red onion[s]

Top, tail, and dice the carrot[s]

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

3 Project Heinz Cottage Pie V.2

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of olive oil over a medium heat

Once hot, add the chopped onioncarrot and garlic and cook for 3-4 min or until beginning to soften

Meanwhile, dissolve the Kallo beef stock cube[s] and tomato paste in 250ml [400ml] boiled water and stir in the Marmite – this is your tomato stock

4 Project Heinz Cottage Pie V.2

Once the vegetables have softened, add the beef mince and cook for 3-4 min or until browned, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as you go

Grate the cheddar cheese

Once the beef is browned, add the tomato stock to the pan and bring to the boil over a high heat

Season with a grind of black pepper and cook for 4-5 min or until slightly thickened – this is your beef mixture

5 Project Heinz Cottage Pie V.2

While the beef mixture thickens, return the drained potatoes to a low heat with a large knob of butter, a splash of milk and a generous pinch of salt and pepper

Mash until smooth

6 Project Heinz Cottage Pie V.2

Once the beef mixture has thickened, transfer it to an oven-proof dish

Top with the mashed potato and sprinkle over the grated cheese

Put the dish in the oven for 15-20 min or until golden brown and bubbling – this is your cottage pie

7 Project Heinz Cottage Pie V.2

While your cottage pie is cooking, re-boil a kettle

Cut the broccoli into florets

Add the broccoli florets to a pot with plenty of boiled water and bring to the boil over a high heat
