    luckychelle's Note:

    This is a traditional English cottage pie just like my Mum makes. And my Mum likes everything with a bit of a kick. I often find other versions of this bland, but this is just right. Cottage pie is specifically made with ground beef. If it's made with lamb then it becomes shepherds pie and if it's made with anything else it's often called shepherdess pie. Exact quantities aren't required. It's easy to adjust the proportions depending on the size of the dish you're using or the meat/potato ratio prefered.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Peel the potatoes and put them on to boil.
    2. 2
      Slice the carrots and spring onion.
    3. 3
      Fry the beef and the onions in a little oil. Add the salt, pepper and sauce to taste. (I use a lot of pepper and sauce because I like a strong kick).
    4. 4
      When the beef is brown add the stock cube and some water (not too much, just enough to keep the meat moist while it's in the oven).
    5. 5
      Mix the meat with the carrots and peas, then spread evenly in an ovenproof dish about 4 inches deep, filling to about 3/4 of the depth.
    6. 6
      Drain the potatoes and mash them with butter and mix in chopped spring onion.
    7. 7
      Spread this over the top of the meat. The pie should now be level with the top of the dish.
    8. 8
      Make pretty patterns with a fork.
    9. 9
      Put it in the oven on a medium heat until the top is brown (about 30 minutes usually).

      We loved this cottage pie!! It was a great way to use up a lot of bits and pieces from the fridge, plus a few frozen veggies. Instead of ground beef I used ground turkey and added a little sage to the list. I also added some shredded sharp old cheddar cheese on top of the potatoes. I will be making this one again, thanks for posting.
