Advantages: Excellent value for money; Tasty
I spotted this Bisto Cottage Pie whilst shopping at Asda; I couldn't believe how cheap it was. It was in the frozen section and only priced at a £1.00 I thought this must have been a new product because I had never seen it before. I really like Bisto gravy and thought that this meal would be very beefy in flavour; the picture on the front certainly looks appealing. It is made with 100% Minced Beef. This meal is described as 'A classic cottage pie with minced beef and onions in rich thick gravy, topped with mashed potato'.
I am not sure if some people would class this as a setback but it can only be cooked in the oven. Personally when it comes to shepherds pies or cottage pies, I tend to think they come out a lot better when cooked in the oven, so this wasn't a problem for me. It takes 50 minutes to cook in the oven (or 40 minutes in a fan oven).
The cooked product comes out really good; the top does go a bit crispy too; it is full of minced beef and the flavour is as I thought, beefy and delicious; the gravy is thick and this is actually quite a fair sized portion for one person. One of my favourite vegetables is Broccoli and I usually have this with Broccoli; but basically it's good to add any vegetable to this meal. It's quite good calorie wise and only 318 Kcals (375g box); so this can easily be used as part of a calorie controlled diet if you wish and its very filling.
