Comfort food at its best. Taking us right back to our childhoods when our parents used to use corned beef in as many dinners as they possibly could because it was a cheap and quick meal. However back then we had the full fat corned beef and although can be used in this recipe we use the lean corned beef for a healthier option.
You can add any veg you like if you want to bulk it out some more, mushrooms and peppers are a great veg to add but you can literally add anything you like. You can also swap 1 of the potatoes and replace it with butternut squash chips. Delicious.
Some recommended items from our kitchen to make this dish…
- A big time saver for chopping veg with a veg chopper, from onions to carrots this is a god send to chop quickly.
- Double sided dry and liquid measuring spoons for times when you need to measure both liquid and dry ingredients.
- Cheese grater with varying grater sizes.
- A decent set of knives for chopping, with a knife sharpener which is always handy.
- A lot of our dishes are pyrex, great for cooking. Perfect for roasters too and easy to clean.
