Peel and cook potatoes. Mash them
Hardboil a couple of eggs and peel them.
Cook some smoked fish and some white fish in milk. Drain (keep the milk) and roughly flake the fish.

Make a white sauce and put the flaked fish and chopped hard boiled eggs into it. Season to taste. Smoked fish is often quite salty but it's nice to add pepper.

Put into a casserole dish and smother the top with mashed potato. Oven bake until the potato browns on top.

Variations:  add lightly fried onions to the white sauce mix. Use prawns as well as fish. Use sweetcorn in the mix. Grate some cheese on top of the potato and let it melt in and brown up.

Yum. ( and it's easy to swallow because it's 'wet'.)

AAHHHHHHH!!!!!  That's the same as my shepherds pie except you use fish and I use ground beef!!  I would've never thought to use fish!  I use ground beef plus any leftovers from the week and then top with potatoes.  I'm giving your fish pie a try!!

I'll pass . . . I'm not crazy about fish.

Tonight I had vegetable soup.  Hit the spot.   ;D

Scottie, mashed potatoes are "mash" there, right?  You may have to give us a "bangers and mash" recipe.  ;)

We have BritCon next September. How do you make Bangers and Mash? That is one of the dishes that our British guests have asked for. The other dish is bread pudding.

Sausages and mashed potatoes with a rather rich onion gravy.  I've made this one before and it's a huge hit with me hubby!

It sounds like the gravy is the key. Do you have a recipe for it? I'm a dumb man that does not know how to cook.

Hey, Nara, you know what bangers and mash are!  ;) I just learned recently from our UK and Canadian friends here.  It sounds really good. 

We'll have to send you a recipe, Joe. So, Nara? The floor is yours.  ;D 8)

I FINALLY got around to making the potato soup today, like I meant to about 2 weeks ago.  It's chilly and rainy here and it tasted great.  Yummy!

Joe and Melinda,

The secret is trying to cut calories!!  Sometimes I used kielbasa, sometimes chicken and apple sausage, Sometimes HOT sausage.  Depends on your tastes that day.  ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS REAL MASHED TATERS!!!  None of this boxed stuff unless you just don't have energy.  For the gravy, I use a beef broth mixed with milk and flour.  I saut? onions and then pour the beef broth in; mix the flour in cold milk to prevent clumping and get the onions and broth boiling.  Pour in milk and stir CONSTANTLY and lower flame to low medium.  Once it starts to thicken, turn fire off and keep stirring.  I like ti slice up the sausage before putting it on the taters and then add gravy on top - a lot of gravy.  This is a bowl meal for us.  You can try a plate but I think it works better in a bowl.

Thanks for the recipe. I have added it to the file for the convention. Now I will let Jan figure out how to adjust it for 500 people.

Just multiply everything by 1000!  BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!  That's a mighty courageous undertaking!!  Best of luck.
