Cobble eh?…reminds me of a shoemaker 😉 but no no no it’s also to do with food :). Cobblers can be made savoury or sweet, (it’s mainly a dish with a topping on top either a biscuit style, batter or pie crust) I have made a sweet cobbler before but this was the first time I made a savoury one, the savoury one is mainly like scones on top of a mixture of filling.

This is a nice dish to make when it’s cold outside it’s quite a comforting dish. I made this recipe using me own ideas and used whatever vegetables were available and I thought I would use a skinny white sauce style practically milk mainly.

Ingredients for the base
  1. 1/2 cup – milk
  2. 1 tbsp – plain flour
  3. 4 – bay leaves
  4. 4 – cloves garlic crushed
  5. 1 – finely cut very small onion
  6. Mix of vegetables enough for the amount of people: I used peas, sweetcorn, potatoes, green beans, mushrooms (can use any sort of vegetable you want)
  7. 1 can – cannelloni beans (or butter beans or any other white beans)
  8. 3/4 – 1 tsp salt to taste
  9. freshly grated nutmeg
  10. generous amount of freshly ground pepper
  11. Freshly cut handful small bunch of parsley
  12. optional: chilli powder 1/2 – 3/4 spoon
  1. Some grated cheese
  2. Freshly ground pepper
  3. For the cobbler topping
  4. Please refer to my scone recipe (link below) but replace the sugar with the same amount of grated cheese and add some chives and red onions and 1/4 tsp of salt and good amount of freshly ground pepper.
  1. 1. Add some oil(olive or vegetable) into a saucepan let it heat then add the garlic and onions then add the flour stir it through and let it cook and then add the milk and add all the vegetables apart from the beans and all the seasoning (pepper, salt, nutmeg & bay leaves) cover with a lid and let it cook.
  2. 2. Preheat the oven to 190°C.
  3. 3. Meanwhile start making the scones using the scone recipe in the link above.
  4. 4. Check on the filling when the potatoes are nearly cooked add the beans and check on the taste change accordingly leave the pan uncovered to reduce the sauce, let it cook until the potatoes are just cooked, add the freshly cut parsley and stir through.
  5. 5. Finish off making the scones and cut the scones according to the size of the dish (these were a smaller size then the ones I made before) add some grated cheese and ground pepper on top of each one. Line the dish with a bit of oil to grease it, add the mixture and then the scones on top. Then bake for 15-20 mins, check the scones are slightly coloured on top.
  1. Try and use a deep dish.
  2. As this was the first time I made this dish next time I would make it more saucy, I found there wasn’t enough sauce but also use a deep so it will allow for the sauce.
