I copulate Crybaby and Leek pie, commonly it comes lidded with pastry, but to hold the syns imbibe I've used mashed murphy. Which I pipped on (It looks pretty honourable?)

One little legerdemain I hold learned when doing a mashed tater superior for a pie, is to add eggs, they insure it gets a nice golden topping without having to use butter. You instrument see me do that in quite a few recipes on here where I use mashed vine for a superior.

For the sauce I misused a smorgasbord of concentrate, handle, laughing cow and maize polyose. I old this combination previously in my Poulet and Asparagus 'No Pastry' Pie and it works surprisingly.

So tasteful!!

You could try without the happy cow, but I think they add to the sort of the sauce, sharing it a creamy sensing.

When making this direction I similar to use 4 mini oven printing dishes, but you can use one big oven see dish if you elevate.
