While the potatoes are cooking brown the mince on high heat it only takes a few minutes, drain away the fat then return to cooker add the veg and on a medium heat cook for a minute. Meanwhile boil the kettle to make the gravy add 2tsp gravy powder to 250ml boiled water and mix then add to mince and cook for a few minutes.

Step 4

Sprinkle the grated cheese on top and cook in the oven on the middle shelf for 20 minutes until the cheese has gone brown.
Then serve.

You can use as much or as little butter or cheese that you want.
I find getting or ready grated cheese if you dont want to do it yourself is more handy.
