More About This Recipe
  • Shepherd’s pie, also commonly referred to as cottage pie (though used synonymously, the two terms are technically different depending on which meat you use!), is a meat pie with origins in the United Kingdom that uses mashed potatoes instead of a pastry crust topping. Traditionally, this dish is made with minced lamb, though there are variations that use other types of meat like ground beef or even turkey and ham. Shepherd’s pie started out as a dish made by the English as a way to save money and use up their leftovers, and it can still easily be used as such present day. Use a variety of leftover mixed vegetables like carrots, corn, onion and more and grab any ground beef or lamb hanging out in your freezer. Looking for more creative recipes for mashed potatoes?
