There is an outside chance that he may have been winding me up when he said "I love Cheese & Potato Pie".
Because, when I made him a Cheese, Onion & Potato Pie, he hated it.
True, it did take longer (faaar longer) than it was supposed to, to cook - which made dinner terribly terribly late.
True, it did amount to FOUR layers of potato, which was an awful lot of potato.
True, the potato was in layers of slices, rather than in cubes. ~shrug~ (Does it matter? Apparently, yes).
True, the creme fraiche included in the recipe turned to watery milk that required, tantalisingly, the pie to sit and rest for 15 minutes after coming out of the oven.
And finally, it is true that it wasn't a "classical" cheese, onion & potato pie.
But I liked it! Shame I'm not better at accepting large quantities of onion in things, otherwise I'd have been able to eat the leftovers. *sigh*
Son & heir's opinion of it was "it's weird. Not bad, but weird". Riiigghhht.
Won't be doing this one again - but if you fancy a jolly nice Cheese, onion & potato pie and have 2hrs in which to cook it (don't believe their estimate of 1.5hrs), never mind the time required to make it, you'll find the recipe on the BBC Good Food website, here.
I'll just be off to boil my head.
