Humble Pie

I like this because everyone I serve it to enjoys it. It it good hot, cold or warm. Can be a main dish, picnic or finger food and is very adaptable, encouraging creativity. Amounts are very flexible.
The basic idea came from an English vegetarian restaurant, but canned fish or ham suits it well too.
It uses cheap ingredients that most people have in stock and can be whipped up for unexpected visitors.
