How does cottage pie-meets-cauliflower cheese sound? We’ve given our timeless Cottage Pie a seriously cheesy twist by swapping out the mashed potato for a much lighter cauliflower topping. There’s cheese mixed into the cauli mash and sprinkled over the top too, so just wait until this starts bubbling in the oven – it smells incredible!

Hints & Tips

Below we added some of our communities most common hints and tips. We hope you find them useful.

NEW TIP
A winter warmer with hidden cauliflower!
If your kids are not keen on cauliflower, half and half the topping with potato and cauliflower. Once mashed together with the cheese the didn't even taste the cauliflower. We added a tablespoon of horseradish for a bit of a kick too!
NEW TIP
Don't like Leek?
I'm not a big fan of Leek, so used celery instead.
NEW TIP
Cauliflower topping made this so light it was delicious.
We used Lamb Mince and we put in a chicken stock pot and red wine stock pot instead of beef. Served with tender stem broccoli and broad beans.
NEW TIP
Real comfort food at its best
I used cauliflower and broccoli cheese to top it
NEW TIP
A lovely alternative to mash!
If user a ricer to mash the cauliflower beware of the excess water!
NEW TIP
Fabulous and tasty
Quick and easy to make. I did add 1 tsp of cornflour to make the sauce slightly thicker but it depends how you like it. Tasty and so so filling. A huge hit.
NEW TIP
Used some broccoli as well as cauliflower as didn’t have enough cauliflower. Tasted lovely
