Pan haggerty is a traditional Northumbrian vegetarian side dish containing potatoes, onion and cheese. A lovely winter warmer which works well as an accompaniment to most meats or served for breakfast with crispy bacon and a fried egg.

If you love this kind of thing, then take a look at our mashed potato pie, with bacon, leeks and cheese.
