[Recipe] Quick and Easy Fish Pie

quick and easy fish pie

 
This was delicious! This was made on a whim after we decided to have fish for dinner but didnt know what to cook with it. I found a recipe book under the bed and it was actually Lee who thought this would be good try. So off he went to the shop to get eggs and potatoes as I said I would I would cook it đŸ™‚

It was quick and easy just like the title suggests and both boys loved it – eating all the fish and the boiled eggs without question – which is a great result, especially for Max who hasn’t really been eating all that well recently.

There is somethings much more satisfying about eating nice fresh made food as opposed to ready made meals.
