Cheesy Potato Pie Recipe

50 minutes


  • 4 large mashing potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes (approximately 500g)
  • 175g of cheddar, grated
  • 100ml of cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 100g of Parmesan, grated
  • 6 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 3 tbsp of crispy shallots
  • 1 handful of oregano, finely chopped
  • 1 handful of basil, finely chopped


To begin, cook the cubed potatoes in salted boiling water until soft
Drain and let them cool slightly. Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4
In a food processor, blend the cooked potatoes, egg, cream, grated cheddar (reserving a few spoonfuls of cheese for later) and onion until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste
Spoon half of the mixture into a buttered baking dish or individual ramekins, add a layer of grated cheese and herbs, then pour the rest of the potato mixture on top. Place the cherry tomato halves and some more grated cheese on top to finish
Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with the Parmesan and bake in the oven for 20–30 minutes, until golden brown
Once ready, take out of the oven, sprinkle with some fresh herbs and crispy shallots and serve immediately
