It's an interesting book, full of family type recipes for toddlers that can be scaled up for family meals. As with all my cookery books I've earmarked the recipes I want to try but the Fish Finger Pie wasn't on the list. But when a friend who also has the book said "Have you tried the Fish Finger pie, my 2 loved it" I thought it would be fun to try out.
Its all very simple. I've halved the recipe as its best eaten fresh and it was plenty for a 2 year old and myself for lunch.
- Grill or oven bake 4 frozen fish fingers (I had to buy some as we don't usually have them).
- Peel a couple of medium sized potatoes - I also put some sweet potato in to up the nutritional content - and cook until tender. Once cooked mash with butter and a dash of milk.
- Assemble the pie as follows: lay fish fingers on the bottom of an ovenproof dish, pour baked beans over - I used half a large tin, top the beans with the mashed potatoes.
- Sprinkle a mound of grated cheese over the potatoes and bake for 15 minutes or until golden on top and hot through.
