What is Panacalty?

How do you spell panacalty?

This English casserole dish is known in various ways:
⭐ Panackelty
⭐ Panacalty
⭐ Panackerty
⭐ Pan Haggerty

The name derives from the word pan indicating that is cooked in a pan. This is a lamb or beef potato casserole originating in North East England. Besides being very simple to assemble it’s extremely comforting and economical to cook especially if you’re cooking for a crowd. In fact, this is a family favorite of working-class families and in Sunderland, it’s often eaten on Monday using leftover meat cooked slowly with leftover root vegetables together with a tin of corned beef all covered with sliced potatoes on top.

To my surprise, I also found out the dish is also a fantastic breakfast accompanied by fried eggs!

  1. Top notch recipe! Old recipe that never disappoints. However, I do swap the corned beef with leftover brisket and sausage depending what I have available. Also, I suggest to use lots of heartwarming homemade stock.
