  1. Skin and core the kidneys, and cut the meats into small neat pieces.
  2. Wash, peel and slice the potatoes, and slice the onions.
  3. Line the casserole with a layer of these vegetables.
  4. Season well and fill the casserole with layers of meat, vegetables and seasonings.
  5. Pour on the water [or stock].
  6. Have a layer of potatoes on top, brush over with a little melted butter, cover with a "lid" of buttered paper, or the lid of the casserole, and cook for half-an-hour at fairly hot [220 C/425 F/Gas 7], then for 1½ hours in a slow oven [150 C/300 F/Gas 2].
  7. Remove the lid, and continue cooking for a further half hour to brown the top layer.


This is a very traditional and basic recipe. Nowadays other root vegetables and herbs are included and neck of lamb takes the place of mutton.
