In a large saucepan, fry onions and Streaky Bacon in the sunflower oil until the onion is soft and the bacon is browned.
Add the Minced Venison and garlic and raise the heat so the meat browns a little, stirring constantly.
Add the mushrooms and cook for a further minute.
Sprinkle in the plain flour, stir in well, then add venison or beef stock, the tomato purée, Worcestershire sauce, thyme leaves, salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Bubble gently for 15 minutes, season again to taste, then place in a shallow ovenproof dish.
Mix swede or sweet potato with the potatoes spread on top of the mince and scatter the Cheddar cheese on top.
Meanwhile, heat the oven to 180ºC/ Fan 160ºC/ Gas 4.
Bake for 20-25 minutes until the cheese is starting to brown and the mince is bubbling through at the edges.
Leave to stand for 5 minutes before serving.
