Getting Started...You will need 1 medium to small pot, 1 wooden spoon, 1 green chopping board, 1 sharp knife. 1 cup or mug, 1 large oven proof dish or 4 individual pie dishes 1 baking tray and 1 ladle.
Pre-heat your oven to 170c
Heat the milk in the pot. Do it slowly esp. if you aren't using a heavy bottomed pot. Use the wooden spoon to stir it.
While it is heating peel and slice the onion then add to the milk in the pot.
Wash and slice the spring onions then add these too.
Add the stock cube and few turns of a pepper mill
Place the butter or margarine in the cup and melt in the microwave. It should take no more than 30 seconds.
Add the four and mix really well.
When the milk is almost boiled add half roux and stir with the wooden spoon, give it a minute and add more if not thick enough. The sauce should be like creamed rice.
Add the Smoked Coley and Stir.
Allow to simmer on a very low heat for a few minutes
Using the ladle fill each dish leaving about 3/4 full.
Peel the potatoes then slice as thinly as possible, I mean really thin if you can.
Layer the slices on top of the pie until you fill the dish.
