Recipe by Miraklegirl
I started making this for my family when I was around 13. My brother Adam, who I call Adi, was crazy about it. Some people use creamed corn, I found that the frozen corn kept everything nice and moist. I eyeballed everything in this recipe, so hopefully the amounts are fairly accurate. Enjoy...

We are big cottage (or shepherd's) pie fans in our house. When I saw this recipe I couldn't wait to try it, I never thought of adding a layer of corn between the meat and the potatoes. I also loved the mashed potatoes mixed with the fried onions, I had the BH and the kids fighting over the crust. Instead of using garlic and onion powder I used fresh garlic and lots of paprika. There's just enough pie left over for dinner tonight, I hid it all the way back in the fridge so the BH doesn't find it first! Thanks, Aviva, I really enjoyed this dish!
