Welcome to Pots & Co where we are proud to make the most beautiful award winning desserts.

'Hidden Spinach' Cottage Pie for Kids

Recipe ideas

We strive for perfection in our puddings and chose ceramic as it offers perfect heat distribution when cooking. It also means that our puddings can go straight on the table without any fuss, and looking beautiful.

Plus, of course, you get to keep the ramekins to use again and again and this page is full of recipe ideas to put those pots to good use (see the ‘reusing the pots’ page for additional non-food ideas). Please do send in your ideas too.

We know that at some point you may have too many Pots in your cupboards, even for all the ideas on these pages. However, please be assured that they are made from clay, an unlimited natural resource; and that they can also be recycled at your local household waste recycling centre.

Our Pots can be used at oven temperatures of up to 200 degrees and are dishwasher safe. 

'Hidden Spinach' Cottage Pie for Kids

Graphic Designer

Makes 8 little pots – to eat and to freeze

THE RECIPE:

1. Finely chop the carrot, onion, garlic and sauté in the oil until soft. Set aside.

2. In the same pan add the mince one third at a time, fork it down, and discard any excess fat.

3. Return the carrot, onion, garlic to the pan and season lightly. Add 1 tbsp of plain flour and mix thoroughly.

4. Add the stock cube to 100ml of hot water and add to the pan.

5. Add the tomatoes, thyme, bay leaves and simmer gently for 40 minutes (until the excess liquid has boiled down).

6. Add the frozen spinach and cook for another 5 minutes.

7. To make the mash, chop the potatoes into small chunks and boil in seasoned water until tender. Drain. Add the butter and cream and leave for 5 minutes before mashing.

8. Fill each of our colourful Pots with mince up until the line, and spoon the mash on top (with grated cheddar if you wish).

9. Bake for 25 minutes until the top is crusty and golden.
