Traditional Scottish Mutton and Potato(e) Pie Recipe

This is a recipe for mutton and potatoe pie. Its name varies as it is also known as mutton hot pot or even tattie(a Scottish word for potato) pot. Its main ingredient is mutton, which is older lamb and is a very good recipe for ideas for this (at times) unpopular meat dish of mutton.

Mutton and Potato Pie

4 mutton chops (or lamb), middle neck
2 mutton kidneys(or lamb) cored
1lb new potatoes, peeled and sliced
1 small black pudding
3 oz onions, diced
5oz carrots, sliced
5fl oz white stock
Seasoning(Salt & Pepper)

Pre heat the oven to 350F. Slice the kidneys and remove white core (if not already removed) and fry along with the chops (use as little fat as possible, relying on the natural fats) for about 3-4 minutes.

In a casserole dish, place a layer of sliced potatoes, then cover with half the chops/kidney mixture. Then layer a further layer with the half the black pudding, half onions and half carrots. Season well. Repeat the process and finish by placing a final layer of potatoes on top.

Pour the stock over the mixture then brush the top of the potatoes with either a small amount of lard or butter (to give a nice crispy topping). Cover and cook in the oven for 1&1/2 to 2 hours. Then remove the lid, increase the oven temperature to 425F and cook for approx. another 30 minutes.

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
