Is this the end of the Hot Pot as we know it?

Coronation Street actress Betty Driver dies, aged 91
She had already been in showbusiness for more than 40 years, touring the UK as a singer by the age of 12. Driver was appointed an MBE in 1999.

Driver had originally auditioned for the role of Hilda Ogden in 1964 but was later persuaded to come out of retirement to audition for the role of Betty. She appeared in more than 2,800 episodes.

Never knew that.

Betty’s Hotpot (according to ITV, that is):
1 lb scrag end or best end neck of lamb, chopped and fried quickly until golden
1.5 lb potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
1 large onion, thinly sliced
Salt and pepper
1 to 1.5 cups chicken stock
1 oz lard or dripping
(optional, slice or dice a couple of carrots or add some corn or peas)
Method: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Put the fried meat into a casserole dish. Arrange potatoes and onion on top of meat. Season. Overlap the top layer of potatoes. Pour in the stock. Melt lard and brush over top of potatoes. Cover dish. Bake in oven for two hours. Uncover dish and turn oven up to brown the top. Serve with chutney, red cabbage or beetroot.
