Preheat oven to 180°C / Gas Mark 4 / 350°F

  1. Make up the cous cous with 300ml of boiling water, stir and leave to settle for 5 minutes.
  2. Add this to a loose bottom non stick baking dish once all the water has been absorbed. Make sure you press the cous cous down hard into the bottom of the dish to seal the base.
  3. Beat the eggs in a separate bowl and then add the can of macaroni cheese and the pot of cottage cheese. Mix with a hand held blender until all the big lumps are gone.
  4. Slice the mushrooms and arrange over the top of the cous cous base.
  5. Slice the ham and add to the cheese mixture.
  6. Pour the cheese mixture over the cous cous and bake in the oven at 180 degrees for approx 40 minutes until the top is golden brown and the mixture is hard to the touch.
  7. Leave to stand for approx 10 minutes before serving.

Ideal hot with a jacket potato, baked beans or salad or cold for lunch the next day. ​This can be made vegetarian if you leave out the ham.
