British Food Fortnight Recipe 5 - sausage and kale pie

This sausage and kale pie recipe from looks delicious. It would make a perfect midweek family meal this autumn. It also looks a great way of getting your kids to eat their greens - or in my case a great way of getting my fussy adult brother to eat some vegetables for once!

Prep: 20 minutes
Cook: 30 minutes
Serves 4

700g King Edward potatoes, cut into large chunks
25g butter
50ml semi skimmed milk
250g pack Kale
1 tbsp oil
450g sausagemeat
1 onion, sliced (150g)
1 eating apple, cored and sliced (175g)

Preheat the oven to 200oC, gas mark 6.

Cook the potatoes in boiling water for 10-12 minutes or until tender, drain and return to the pan, mash with the butter and milk then season.

Meanwhile, cook the kale in boiling water for 3 minutes, drain. Roughly chop half and stir into the mash.

Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the sausagemeat, onion and apple for 4-5 minutes, breaking up the sausagemeat.  Stir in the remaining kale and transfer to an ovenproof dish.  Spoon over the kale mash and bake for 30 minutes until golden.

Cooks tip
Try using sweet potato instead of potato for a change. Try using a pack of flavoured sausages instead, just remove the skin and fry with the onion and apple.
