“This is the pie we will be having on St patrick's day for dinner served with cabbage and lot's of gravy. However you can make it any time you like. You can put other things in it I sometimes put the cabbage on the top of the mix and just serve that with gravy. Also if you make your own pastry you can add some herbs, sage is a nice beefy one to add, the seasoning in this recipe is down to choice you may like to add more if you like things a bit more peppery. Note that cooking time does not incluede the boiling of the potatoes.”
