A traditional dish which is called a pie but has no pie crust. This dish is a good way of using up leftover lamb and has the unusual addition of apple which is more often associated with pork.


  • 2 cups cooked, diced organic lamb
  • 5 medium organic potatoes
  • 4 medium cooking apples
  • 4 medium organic onions
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 pint of gravy from the cooking of the lamb
  • nutmeg to taste
  • rosemary to taste
  • 1 medium organic swede
  • salt and pepper
(see measure conversions for more information on quantites)


  1. Slice the cooked lamb, the onions and the apple.
  2. Peel and finely dice the potatoes and the swede.
  3. Parboil the onions with the apples for about 4 minutes.
  4. Boil the potatoes with the swede until they are soft enough to be mashed together.
  5. Take a large pie dish and grease it with a little of the butter.
  6. Layer the lamb, onions and apples and seasoning, sprinkling the herbs as you go.
  7. Pour the gravy over this and then make a topping with the swede and potato mix.
  8. Cut up the remaining butter and dot over the top of the pie.
  9. Bake at 190 degrees centigrade (see temperature conversions) for about 1 hour.
