Shepherd’s Pie

7D96ADAE-F468-4928-9A7B-0AD157540CC2

Hearty one pot Shepherd’s Pie has been around forever. Ground beef with vegetables and topped with delicious mashed potatoes makes this a complete meal. The next time you make mashed potatoes, make extra and add them to your Shepherd’s Pie for your next meal. I like a lot of mashed potatoes so I make a fresh batch of mashed potatoes just before I put this together. I like to cook my Shepherd’s Pie in my 10” cast iron pan that can go from the burner straight into the oven, however, you can bake this in a 3 quart casserole dish as well.

Continue to simmer, stirring frequently,

until thick and vegetables are cooked.

This won’t take very long.

If you are using an oven safe frying

pan, add the mashed potatoes to the top.

Otherwise, pour the hamburger mixture

into an 3 quart casserole dish and

cover with the mashed potatoes.

  1. Call it as you wish but its English dish and if not lamb it is not Shepard pie but cottage pie with beef or pork mince with onions fried and potato mash with butter on top.Looks good what ever it is but I stick always to traditional English upbringing and this we loved and still do as lamb is in plenty here.
