|Here's a recipe from a NZ book (oft given to kids as a rite of passage when they leave home, so Im sure any Kiwi's will know it) .. its very basic - I sometimes use Worcester Sauce, Tomato paste, various herbs and have been known to 'hide vegetables' in it by starting with a trio of finely diced carrot, leek (instead of onion, my mother doesnt tolerate onion well) and celery as they just use onion here .. you'll have to look at what others have said and start your own family tradition
1 tablespoon oil
1 onion, chopped
500g mince (?originally minced/chopped leftover roast lamb)
2 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon tomato sauce
1 tablespoon chutney or relish
3/4 cup beef stock
3 potatoes, chopped
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
1/2 cup grated tasty cheese
pepper to taste
Heat oil in a large frying pan.
Add onion and cook until clear.
Add mince and cook until well browned, stirring constantly.
Pour off excess fat
Stir in flour and cook for 1 minute
Add tomato sauce, chutney and stock
Bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes
Cook potatoes in boiling, salted water until tender
Drain and heat for a few minutes to dry off excess moisture, shaking the pan frequently
Add butter, onion, and half the cheese, mixing until smooth and creamy (I usually add some cream/milk)
Season with salt and pepper to taste
Put mince into a ‘pie dish’ (I usually use a glass ‘loaf pan’)
Top with potato mixture
Sprinkle with remaining cheese
Bake at 190 degrees C for 20 minutes until golden and heated through
