It’s time for the cosiest dish known to man to come onto the frontier. This is a dish I crave every time I’ve been away on holiday on in some desperate need of some good cosy British food. So, I present to you a Slimming World Cottage Pie to really warm up these colder evenings and settle you nicely into a food coma.
Cottage pie = Good, good and good.
Potato, good. Meat (or Quorn), good, veggies, good. (Don’t worry, no jam or cream). This dish is so good I think I might have to make a public marriage proposal. My mouth is actually watering right now at just the thought of this dish on my mind, let alone in front of me. When I think of this yummy pie drowning in gravy (because anything in gravy has to be, let’s be real) I know I have gone to my happy place and it will soon be yours too.
This Slimming World Cottage pie contains a juicy beef mince filling with flavourful vegetables that are hidden under a fluffy pile of mashed potatoes. Simple and delicious. On top is a light sprinkling of cheese to really crisp it up and let’s face it, who doesn’t love cheese?! All that is left is to pour on the rich gravy and you’ve got yourself a hearty pie to remember.
I’ve also been asked recently about my vegetarian options, so to make this dish vegetarian-friendly you can use Quorn mince and vegetable gravy granules and stock cubes.
Let’s get in touch!

This Slimming World Cottage pie contains a juicy beef mince filling with flavourful vegetables that are hidden under a fluffy pile of mashed potatoes. Simple and delicious.
1 large onion
1 large carrot
1 can of garden peas
750g of 5% beef mince meat (or Quorn mince for vegetarians)
1350g of potato
25 g of reduced fat cheese
100 ml of semi-skimmed milk
25g of Flora light
2 beef stock cubes (vegetable for vegetrarians)
1 tsbp of mixed herbs
12 tsp of beef Bisto gravy granuels (vegetable for vegetarians)
The potato: Firstly, pre-heat the oven to 200°C. Then, peel the potatoes and chop into medium sized chunks; next, fill your kettle with water and boil. Once boiled, bubble the potatoes in the hot water for 25 minutes.
The filling: Now, moving onto the filling you want to start this process by chopping up all of your vegetables and then by frying off mince (or Quorn mince for vegetarians). Once the mince has browned off, add the chopped veg, canned peas and stock cubes to it and leave it to simmer on a low heat until the potatoes are finished boiling and mashed.
Assembling the pie: When the potatoes have finished boiling, strain them, add the milk and mash until it’s all smooth. Then, in a large cooking dish, pour in the mince and veg mix and then top and spread evenly with the mashed potatoes. Finally, run the tip of a fork along the top to create track marks and sprinkle on the measured out cheese.
Cooking: Place the pie into the heated oven for 40 minutes and until the cheese starts to brown on top.
The gravy: To finish off, boil the kettle and measure out the gravy granuels and then, add the boiling water to it to prepare the gravy (the more water the thinner it’ll be).
Serving: Once the cheese is browned and gravy is made you can go ahead and serve the pie into 5 portions and top with the gravy. Enjoy!
SLIMMING WORLD: Contains 5g worth of cheese hexa and 4 syns per portion.
VEGETARIAN: Use Quorn mince meat (which is still syn free) instead of regular mince and use vegetable gravy granuels and stock cubes instead of beef.
