Place prepared potatoes into a large pan. Cover with just enough boiling water to cover and fast simmer with the lid on for about 10 – 15 minutes until soft.
Meanwhile place the beef, onion, garlic and carrot in a cold pan. Place on the heat, ‘dry fry’ in its own juices and brown for about 4-5 minutes. Add the tomatoes herbs and ketchup (add a splash of beef stock if a little too thick). Season and bring to the boil and then simmer for 10-15 minutes with the lid on the pan.
Preheat the grill.
Drain the potatoes; add a splash of milk and mash. Place the mince mixture into a shallow dish, top with a thin layer of mash and dot with a little margarine. Place under preheated grill until crisp and golden, about 5- 10 minutes.
Serve with seasonal green vegetables or salad leaves.

"The first time I discovered smoked paprika was on roast potatoes served as tapas with smoked paprika mayonnaise. Before then, I'd assumed chorizo was spiced with plain paprika and then the whole sausage was smoked. It was a revelation and I've had a long lasting smoked paprika period since then. I serve the potatoes and pepper mixture with lamb as a little celebration of Spring."
“This makes a great meal for kids, the asparagus spears are fantastic finger food for them to pop their eggs with, they’ll love the potato of course and it’s a good way to introduce a different way to eat a baked potato."

Putting potatoes in a omelette helps to make it more filling. This is a great twist on a classic omelette recipe and is tasty too.
