Dinner Thursday 22 November - Mashed Potato & Swede Colcannon with Cheese Sauce

Well, my last dinner in the UK until after Christmas. Not much left in the fridge, but had one potato, half a swede, some Brussels sprouts and the last of the Frico reduced fat Edam to get used up, so used up they got.

Mashed Potato & Swede Colcannon with Cheese Sauce
200g potato
200g swede
200g Brussels sprouts

I just boiled the spuds & swedes together and steamed the shredded Brussels over the top. Then combined the Brussels with the mashed potato & swede, seasoned liberally with salt & pepper and poured cheese sauce over it.

Surprisingly tasty!

Veloute Sauce with Edam
200ml vegetable stock
