Gluten Free Potato Pie

Updated: Dec 10, 2023

In the cooler weather is there anything better than a classic, warming meal?

This potato pie has a tasty new spin on the one we had growing up as kids and is of course gluten free and can easily made lactose free or dairy free.

It also freezes well, so feel free to double the amount you make and freeze some serves for another meal. Serve on it's own or with a side of green salad.

You Will Need


2 Tbsp Olive Oil

2 Garlic Cloves, crushed

1 Carrot, finely chopped

1 Onion, finely diced

1 Cup frozen Peas

1 tsp dried Rosemary

1 tsp dried Thyme

2 Bay Leaves

1kilo Mince Meat (Ground Beef)

6 Bacon Rashers, cut into small pieces

1/2 Cup Plain Gluten Free Flour

2 Tbsp Tomato Paste

2 Cups Gluten Free Beef Stock

3 Tbsp Gluten Free Worcestershire Sauce

Mashed Potato

1 kilo Potatoes, peeled and cubed

1/2 Cup unsweetened Soy Milk

2 Tbsp Butter or Nuttelex (or dairy free butter)

1/2 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese

To Make

Heat oil in a large frying pan or pat, stirring in Onion and Garlic and cook for 2 minutes

Add Carrot, Thyme, Rosemary and cook until Carrot slightly softened

Add Mince Meat and Bacon and cook until browned

Add Flour and mix through mince and vegetables - note you may need to add more flour depending on how much water is in your mince. You need the flour to stick to the meat without any water in the pot

Add Tomato Paste, Beef Stock, Worcestershire Sauce, Peas and Bay Leaves, stir and leave to simmer

Stir occasionally until liquid has reduced

Once mixture has thickened, transfer to a baking dish and allow to cool for 2 hours then place in the fridge to cool for a further hour - this is done so that the Mashed Potato sits on top of the mince and doesn't seep through

Preheat oven to 200 degrees (390 F)

Boil potatoes until softened and drain the water

Add to the pan Nuttelex, 1/4 Cup Soy Milk and mash. Add more milk if required until mash is like a thick cream.

Remove baking dish from the fridge and spread the Mashed Potato over the top of the mince

Using a fork, gouge lines across the Mashed Potato and then sprinkle Parmesan Cheese over the top of the mash

Place in oven and bake for approx 30 mins or until golden

Serve and enjoy!

Note: We like to use Soy Milk as a dairy substitute as the texture is very similar, unlike when we have used Almond Milk.
