    • 1 pack Diced Game Birds, 400g
    • 20g butter
    • 250g Minced Pork
    • 4 tbsp sour cream
    • 4 tbsp whisky

  • Method
    1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/Fan 160°C/Gas 4.
    2. Grease a 1ltr pie dish with butter. Mix together the butter, Minced Pork, whisky, sour cream, cheddar and cranberries and place into the pie dish. Sprinkle with parsley.
    3. Pat dry the diced game birds with kitchen paper and season with salt and pepper.
    4. Place the game birds equally on top of the meat mixture.
    5. Heat the mashed potatoes 1 minute, just enough to melt the butter, mix to incorporate the butter into the mash then spread over the pie filling.
    6. Place on a baking tray in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the topping is golden and crusty. Leave to stand for a few minutes before serving with a steamed green vegetable such as broccoli..
