We’ve never had dog food, although apparently it won’t kill you to taste it. There’s this certain kind of dog food that combines lamb and sweet potatoes, and we know a certain dog who eats it. She seems to enjoy it. Although what plops out of the can does not look appetizing, the combination of tender lamb and sweet potatoes remains an intriguing one. We took to the ‘net to see how others have combined them before, and there appear to be many shepherd’s pies, stews and even curries. We wanted a pie for sure, but we wanted one with a flakey crust. One good enough for man and man’s best friend. And, well, that was that!
We will not forget to mention that the secret and winning ingredient in this pie is the demi glace. We won a drawing from The Food Addicts, and the prize was this powerful package of Savory Choice beef demi glace. We’ve tasted a killer osso bucco with demi glace, so we know it has the ability to really shape a dish. When the little box arrived in the mail with our prize and a sweet card from Krissy and Daniel, we knew we had to make them proud. Hopefully, we did just that. Perhaps we can send them a virtual slice to show our gratitude!
