There is nothing more warming after a day cheering the children from the sidelines in the cold wind and pouring rain than a steaming bowl of soup. To serve with warm crusty homemade bread you either neither to be ultra efficient or have a partner in crime to put in the oven as you are on your way home. These days lots of places sell freshly baked so I am guilty of resorting to picking up a loaf on the way.

Not everybody has a deep fat fryer in the kitchen or the luxury of a chippy in close proximity to their home.
This is an easy recipe that anyone can do.
Potatoes cut into large chips
Lard rather than oil
Add the chip potatoes to a pan of water and bring them to the boil
In the meantime melt the lard in a hot oven
When the potatoes are soft but still in shape drain them and add them to the melted lard sprinkle with paprika and put in the oven for about an hour.
Serve and enjoy.

Sometimes I like to serve something different to sausage and mash, but in a family where they are all wary of anything different it is quite a challenge. This disappeared of the table so quickly it became an instant hit. I use cheap pork sausages, sometimes the thin ones so they all seem to be getting more.
Add the diced potatoes, tomato puree and the chicken stock making sure the stock covers everything.
