This was one of my favourite meals when I was a kid and I still love it now. Really comforting and satisfying traditional British food. I've tried other versions but this 1 with the carrots is my favourite. Serve with boiled cabbage or peas and plenty of gravy. Can also be made with lamb mince Yum! The recipe given is for shepherds pie. For cottage pie, add a sprinkling of grated cheese over the top before baking. For cumberland pie, add a sprinkling of breadcrumbs on top before adding the cheese but personally, I don't think it needs either of these. I'm a shepherds man through and through!
