Method

  • Step 1

    Cook the potatoes in a pan of boiling salted water for 10-12 minutes until just tender. Drain well.

Keep cooking and stirring for a few minutes, then gradually add the milk, stirring as you do, until you have a sauce. Stir in the cheese, mustard and parsley. Season, stir in the potatoes and tip into a pie dish.
