Feed My Family! (Dale Potato Pie)

This is yummy in your tummy, comforting, filling and tasty without being stodgy or fattening- perfick! 

Low fat
Easy as pie (cringe!) to make

Long (ish) cooking time
Personally, I've always found squirty cheese a bit creepy

You'll need (to serve six):
800g potatos (peeled)
one cal cooking spray (or similar)
600g fresh spinach (I'm not a fan of the frozen stuff)
Salt and pepper
480g Primula Light Cheese
2 x 28g bags of tortilla chips

To Make:
1. Pop your oven on high and boil your potatoes for 20 mins (I won't patronise you with an image of this!)
2. Wet your spinach, spray a pan with the one cal and pop the spinach in. Heat it for a couple of minutes until it's just starting to wilt.
3. Spray your oven dish with one cal and place half of your spinach in a layer.

4. Slice the potatoes about half a centimetre thick and layer half on the bottom of the dish (ideally you wait until they cool as they cut smoother but I can never be bothered and don't mind if a few crumble).
5, Squirt half of the Primula over the top (I use a spoon to smoosh it around and yes, I know smoosh isn't a real word but it describes the action perfectly!)
6. Repeat the process: spinach, potato, squirty cheese.
7. Crunch up the tortillas and layer them on the top.
8. Cook for forty minutes until it is golden and bubbly.
9. Enjoy- yumma yumma! 
Hope you don't burn the top of the tortillas like me! Happy Friday everyone. x


  1. this sounds super delicious!!!!!! yum! can't wait to make it!

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog! This looks tasty...though I've never seen that kind of cheese in the US before. Does it come in a tube? I wonder if making a cheesy white sauce would be a good substitute? And to answer your question about the pudding, I've had this recipe for meyer lemon pudding sitting in my Pinterest desserts board for a while but have yet to try it out: Let me know if you try it!

  3. this is totally vegan right? haha ; )

  4. It's fine for vegetarians but not vegans due to the Primula. Primula isn't something I normally use, it's is a strange tubed cheese, I took this info off their website so you can see if there's something similar in the US:

    Cheese (50%), Concentrated Skimmed Milk/Whey, Emulsifying Salt (Potassium Triphosphate, Sodium Polyphosphate, Sodium Phosphate), Modified Starch, Butter (contains salt)
