A different but very tasty way to get your kids to eat their peas!!
- Preheat oven to 200* C (390* F) Fan.
- Boil the potatoes in a pot full salted, boiling water. Boil for 12 minutes, until softened. Remove from pot, strain and keep warm in a bowl.
- Boil the peas in the same way for 3-7 minutes, until softened.
- Remove form pot and strain.
- Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a deep pan or pot and place over medium heat. Sauté the onions and garlic until slightly golden.
- Add the ham and bouillon cube and sauté for 5 minutes. Add the heavy cream and peas and allow the mixture to cook over medium heat for 2-3 more minutes.
- Season to taste. Remove from heat and add the mint.
- Transfer to a 30x45 cm baking pan or pyrex dish.
- Use a fork to break up the potatoes in the bowl. You want some of them to be mashed but you want some whole pieces of potatoes to remain. You don’t want a smooth mash. Add half of the grated cheddar, mix and check seasoning.
- Spread potato mixture over pea mixture in the pan. You don’t have to worry about making the top smooth, it’s actually nicer to have a more rustique look.
- Top with remaining grated cheddar and breadcrumbs. Bake for 30-40 minutes, until golden.
