Reap the Benefits - Next-Day Cottage Pie

Yesterday's Spatchcocked Game Hen was so satisfying that 
even after thoroughly noshing-out - as well as sharing with
Misty, my Akita/Shepherd - I still had 1/2 chicken breast left 
over. That, together with the leftover Combie and gravy, made 
this  wonderful dish:

Next-Day Cottage Pie (serves 1)

1/2 cooked Game Hen  breast, skinned, boned & cut into bite-sized 
pieces

1 medium potato, parboiled then peeled and diced

1/2 cup gravy

1/4 cup frozen peas

1 cup Combie

1 tsp butter

salt & pepper 


Lightly oil a 10-oz casserole.  Assemble the meat, potato, 
peas & gravy; season lightly with salt & pepper. 

Top with the Combie, smooth out, and score lightly with 
a fork.  Dot with the butter and bake on a small baking 
sheet at 375 for 1/2 hour.

Nice to have along with steamed broccoli & cauliflower
topped with lemon-zested sour cream or Greek Yogurt.
