Cheesy Mash

This recipe was a favourite with my University housemates and its cheap and easy to make. I'm not great with servings so I'll just put the recipe for about 4 people (ish....I think...)

You will need:
Potatoes (about 12 depending on size)
Cheese, strong mature is best or smoked
Mustard (any type, I prefer Djion)
Bacon (optional)
Worcester Sauce
Salt and Pepper

The mustard can be substituted for chilli sauce or similar

First wash, peel and boil the potatoes in slightly salted water until soft. This normally takes about 20 minutes. 

Whilst boiling, cut the bacon into bitesize cubes and fry in a little oil until crispy. Drain them off onto some kitchen roll and leave in a warm place so they don't get cold.

Dry the potatoes off and put into a bowl. Mash until you have them in small lumps. Next add butter and cheese, mustard, bacon, salt and pepper. Mix well.

Put into an oven dish and sprinkle a bit more cheese on the top along with a splash of Worcester Sauce. Pop under the grill until cheese browns slightly and bubbles. Serve.

Yummy yum yum!
