1kg Maris Piper potatoes, peeled and halved

400ml milk, plus a splash

25g butter, plus a knob

25g plain flour

4 spring onions, finely sliced

1 x pack luxury fish pie mix

1 tsp Dijon or English mustard

½ a 25g pack or a small bunch chives, finely snipped

handful frozen sweetcorn

handful frozen petits pois

handful grated cheddar


  1. Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas mark 6.
  2. Put 1kg potatoes, peeled and halved, in a saucepan and pour over enough water to cover them. Bring to the boil and then simmer until tender.
  3. When cooked, drain thoroughly and mash with a splash of milk and a knob of butter. Season with ground black pepper.
  4. Put 25g butter, 25g plain flour and 4 finely sliced spring onions in another pan and heat gently until the butter has melted, stirring regularly. Cook for 1-2 mins.
  5. Gradually whisk in 400ml milk using a balloon whisk if you have one. Bring to the boil, stirring to avoid any lumps and sticking at the bottom of the pan. Cook for 3-4 mins until thickened.
