METHOD

1. Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil and add cubed potato. Cook for 10-15 minutes until soft but not falling apart. Drain and set aside.

2. Heat oil in a large frypan. Add onion and saute for 3 minutes until softened.

3. Add remaining vegetables and cook covered for 5 minutes. Stirring occasionally to prevent burning.

6. While this is cooking, mash potato with butter and milk until it is soft and well combined.

7. Transfer meat mixture to a deep (insert size) baking dish. Remove bay leaf.

8. Cover with mashed potato mixture and drizzle a small amount of melted butter/margarine over the top.

9. Bake in a moderate oven for 10-15 minutes until lightly browned.
