  1. To cook the potatoes in less time we are going to use the Selecta quick cooker . Put the potatoes in the pot with water until it covers them. To prevent the potatoes from falling apart when cooking, we will add the vinegar to the cooking water. Cook the potatoes for between 7 and 10 minutes depending on the size. Let it cool before peeling.
  2. In the 26 cm Mineral frying pan , add a little oil and sauté the chopped onion along with the garlic. After a few minutes, add the rest of the chopped vegetables and let them sauté for around 5 minutes. Add a little more olive oil if necessary and add the minced chicken, a little salt, pepper, dried rosemary and mix well so that everything is cooked, mixing vegetables and meat from time to time so that the chicken meat is not caked.
  3. Add the brandy and let all the liquid evaporate before adding the tomato sauce. After about 10 minutes we will have the filling ready. Reserve.
  4. With the help of a potato masher or masher, mash all the potatoes until forming a very thick puree, add the diced butter, hot milk, salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste until smooth. You can also emulsify the puree with olive oil.
  5. In the same pan, cover the filling with the mashed potato with a spoon or with a pastry bag if you prefer to make some decoration. Sprinkle with grated cheese. Gratin the cake in the preheated oven until golden.
