Mashed Potato/cheese/onion - Very Quick Supper dish

Oven: 190/200 deg.C 
Approx. 20-mins to 1/2 hr. cooking time**
Buttered tin approx. 6" x 8" x 2" deep

1 or 2 packs of 'ready' mashed potato (400/800g.) (depending how much you need)
1 onion, peeled, chopped and sauteed in oil and butter (inc.clove of garlic if wanted.)
approx. 3ozs. (plus or minus) Cheddar Cheese - or hard cheese of choice - grated
1 large egg - beaten (if using 2 packs of potato - use 2 eggs)

Mix the mashed potato, cheese, onion and beaten egg together and season to taste.*
Place in the tin  and smooth out.
Add a little more grated cheese on top and bake until going golden -  still looks nice, without being too burnt!  - (timing isn't too crucial**)

* Before putting the mashed potato in, you could place, another cooked vegetable layer down, or .....
eg:  bacon bits (cooked), peas, baked beans, sausages - anything you may fancy as long as it's pre-cooked.

The potato cooked on its own will keep very well in the fridge (covered) and you could use it throughout the week - (until you get fed up with it that is).
