Sunday Supper: Shepherd's Pie

June 19, 2011

Shepherd's pie or cottage pie is a classic English dish traditionally made with lamb.  This version uses ground beef, like most recipes from the United States.  This casserole style dish is meat stew topped with mashed potatoes and then baked.  If you are counting calories, this dish is equally delicious with ground turkey.  This comfort food is often served family style.  Your family will love this for dinner.
