A rich, warming winter stew. For 4 servings

  • 300 gr finely chopped cooked meat
  • 300 ml stock
  • 500 gr mashed potatoes
  • 500 gr peeled chopped apples
  • nutmeg
  • pepper, salt
  • tablespoon breadcrumbs

Fry onions in half of the butter until pale golden brown. Add meat, stock and seasoning, stir well. Melt the rest of the butter in an oven-proof dish and place meat mixture, apples and potatoes in layers finishing with a layer of potatoes.
