DIRECTIONS

  • Lightly grease a 6-cup baking dish and set aside.
  • Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in a large saute pan over medium high heat. Add the lamb and cook until starting to brown, about 3 minutes.
  • Add the onions, carrots, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of the pepper, and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add the mushrooms and bay leaf, and cook, stirring, until their liquid is almost all gone, about 4 minutes.
  • Add the tomato paste and cook, stirring, until starting to color, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Add the flour and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Gradually add the stock and Worcestershire sauce, and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until thickened, about 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Meanwhile, place the potatoes in a medium pot and cover with salted water by 1-inch. Bring to a boil and cook until tender, about 10 minutes.
  • Drain in a colander and return to the pot.
  • Over low heat, mash the potatoes with a potato masher.
  • Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter, 3/4 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of pepper, and nutmeg, and mash to incorporate.
  • Add the heavy cream and mix well. Remove from the heat.
  • Remove the pot with the meat from the heat. Remove the bay leaf.
  • Spoon into the prepared dish and top with the mashed potatoes, smoothing the top.
  • Sprinkle the cheese over the top and bake until browned and bubbly on top, 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
