  Eggs 1 , beaten (For Glaze)
  Double cream 100 Milliliter

Directions

GETTING READY
1. Preheat oven to 190C/170C fan/gas
2. Grease a 23-25cm pie plate and set aside
3. Cut the pastry into half and roll out one section to fit the pie plate. Roll out the second section to make a lid that will fit over the pie. Set aside till needed

MAKING
4. Blanch the sliced potatoes in hot vegetable stock for 2-3 minutes.
5. Drain the stock and set aside the potatoes to cool on a tray.
6. When the potatoes are cool, layer the potatoes, cheese, and onion on the pastry base in the pie plate.
7. In a separate bowl, whisk the cream, the eggs, the garlic and seasoning well. Pour over the layered potatoes mix.
8. Brush the edge of the pastry shell in the prepared pie plate with beaten egg. Lay the pastry lid on top and press the edges down lightly.
9. Glaze the top with egg wash again.
10. Bake in a hot oven for 30-40 minutes or till hot, crisp and golden.

SERVING
11. Serve the hot pie with a salad and spicy chutney

TIP
Don’t worry if the eggs and cream mixture seems too much for the pastry shell. The potatoes will soak them up while cooking.
