Cheese & Onion Oat Pie

From High Fibre Recipes by Gina Steer


  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil, plus 1 tsp
  • 25g butter
  • 2 medium onions, peeled and sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and sliced
  • 150g oats
  • 125g aged cheddar cheese, grated
  • 2 medium eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 tbsp freshly chopped parsley
  • salt and pepper
  • 275g baking potatoes, peeled


  1. Preheat oven to 180 C. Heat the oil and half the butter in a saucepan until melted.
  2. Add the onions and garlic and gently cook for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and tip into a large bowl.
  3. Spread the oats out on a baking sheet and toast in the oven for 12 minutes. Leave to cool, then add to the onions with the cheese, eggs, and parsley. Season to taste and mix well.
  4. Line the base of an 8 inch round tin with greaseproof paper and oil well. Thinly slice the potato and arrange the slices on the base, overlapping them slightly.
  5. Spoon the cheese and oat mixture on top of the potato, spreading evenly. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
  6. Invert the pie onto a baking sheet so that the potatoes are on top. Carefully remove the tin and paper.
  7. Melt remaining butter and brush over the potato topping. Place under broiler until the potatoes are lightly browned, cut into wedges, and serve.
