Family Favourite Minced Beef Cobbler

Minced Beef Cobbler
An easy, filling and relatively frugal meal that the whole family will enjoy, even the fussiest of children. I love savoury cobblers, there's something very comforting about them, especially when you top the scones with plenty of cheddar cheese like I do in this recipe. This minced beef cobbler features heavily on our meal plans during the winter months and I like to serve it with seasonal veggies, or failing that some peas from the freezer (to be fair it's usually peas from freezer!!). My lot would quite happily gobble a bowl of this on it's own though. It's most definitely a keeper in this house!

Minced Beef Cobbler


  1. Up the veggies by adding peppers, mushrooms and courgettes to the mince.
  2. Make a veggie version by omitting the bacon and using Quorn mince instead.
  3. Double the recipe if you're feeding a crowd.
  4. Add a tablespoon of caramelised onion chutney to the mince to give it an extra rich flavour.
  5. Serve with seasonal veggies (or peas from the freezer).


  1. Classic Lasagne from Jam and Clotted Cream
  2. Not Just Minced Beef and Onion Pie from A Glug of Oil
  3. Beefaroni Pasta Bake from Lavender and Lovage
  4. Curried Mince and Peas from Jam and Clotted Cream

  1. Booked this in for dinner next week! I've never really paid attention to what a cobbler is, but this post shows me it's everything I want in my belly! :-D Love the sneaky veg in it as well!

  2. Oooh I LOVE the look of this and have saved for later - I'd never thought of making a savoury cobbler before! I have a great Peachick friendly dairy/eggfree cheese & chive scone recipe that I reckon would work really well on top of this! Thanks for sharing x

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
