  1. A sweet potato topping and Cheddar could you go wrong with that combination!!!

  2. It looks absolutely delicious, even better for the burnt bits.

  3. Oh my God , this absolutely awesome and delicious!! gloria

  4. So not too burnt - the crispy bit is the best part! I love fish pie but have never tried it with sweet potatoes which I should do because I love them!

  5. I love the fact that you have used sweet potatoes what a great idea.
