Homestyle Mashed Potato

The easy Homestyle mash - made from real potatoes with milk and butter, for the perfect creamy mash every time - in moments.

Method
Step 1
1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Quickly brown the mince in a hot non-stick frying pan, breaking up the mince with the back of a spoon as it browns. This is best done in 2 batches. Remove from pan and set aside.
Step 2
2. Add an extra dash of oil to the frying pan, gently cook the onion, carrot and celery until crisp and tender, but not brown. Increase heat, add tomato paste and cook stirring for 1 minute, pour over Wattie's Chopped Tomatoes and 1/2 cup of water, stir to combine. Return the browned mince to the sauce, cover and simmer gently for 15 minutes.
Step 3
3. Place the Wattie's Homestyle Mashed Potato in a microwave-safe bowl, cover and microwave on HIGH for 8-10 minutes.
Step 4
4. Spoon the mince into 2 small ramekins for the children, set aside. Add the chorizo, wine and thyme to the remaining sauce, spoon into 2 larger ramekins for adults. Top with hot mashed potato and fan bake for 10-12 minutes or until hot and golden.
Step 5
Serve with your favourite green vegetables on the side.
