Chicken Brussels pie


Chicken Brussels pie
This is a novel twist on the well known cottage or shepherd's pie idea (minced meat topped with mashed potato). Why not try this "Brussels" pie with a mixture of mashed potato and Brussels sprouts on top of chopped chicken?

Your Chicken Brussels pie is ready,
Remarks
If you don't have Comté cheese, use another type suitable for grating.

The chicken can also be replaced with leftovers of another kind of meat.

It is worth noting that French "purée" is softer and much richer that traditional British "mash", so makes more of a gratin topping than a pie crust.
Keeping
A few days in the fridge, covered with plastic film.

Passion fruit jellies
Usually to make fruit jellies or (fruit "paste"), it's like jam but you need to cook fruit pulp and sugar much longer. Unfortunately, this long cooking is bad for both vitamins and flavour. In this recipe we use a special jam gelling agent, to reduce cooking time as much as possible .
