Skin, core and quarter the kidney. Dice the bacon.
Lay the cleaned chops on the base of a deep ovenproof dish.
Place a layer each of onions, kidneys, mushrooms, bacon and potatoes over the chops.
Season to taste.
Repeat the process to use all the ingredients, finishing off the hotpot with the potatoe slices overlapping and dot with knobs of butter or fat.
Add water to 2/3 fill the casserole dish.

Damp edge with water, place other round ontop, press edges together and sprinkle top with caster sugar.
Put cake on greased baking tin and bake in hot oven 400 deg F for about 20-30 mins.

Can you have courting cake if you are married?

Might do the hotpot tomorrow night but without the kidney....we don't 'do' kidney.

I love kidney, and liver, never tried heart.
Will definitely try the Courting Cake.

When I started work 45 years ago, I was living in digs. The landlady had good standards but was sensibly economical, and stuffed heart (lambs', I think) was a regular dish - and very tasty too. I found the flavour nicer than kidney, not at all overpowering, more like any other meat, dense though not chewy. I think they were slowly cooked in a pot-roast or casserole. A "hearty" meal for a cold winter's day!
