Sweet Potato Chicken Pie


I've made pies with potatoes before but haven't tried with a mix of potatoes and sweet potatoes.  Spotted this recipe from a Coles magazine which spurred me to give it a try.  It wasn't bad really.  I think that the sweetness of the sweet potatoes did blend well with the savoury filling.  All in all, a comforting one-dish meal for my family.

  9. I can see how this would work, Cheah. I made cod fish cakes the other night with both kinds of potatoes and it worked out really well. The sweet potatoes add a subtle sweet taste that is very interesting...Your meal looks so much better than mine did though. Mine fish cakes were messy, lol...

    Thanks for sharing...

    1. I did fish cakes before, yes can be messy. Must try again but cod fish here is super expensive!

    2. I used leftover cod, not very much Cheah. I've been thinking about trying this method with canned tuna too, just for the heck of it!
