Cottage pie is a dish of English/Irish origin, a savory pie (made with meat instead of fruit). It consists of a minced or ground meat and diced vegetable filling topped with mashed potato. Traditionally Cottage pie is made with beef, and Shepard’s pie is made with lamb. In the United States most people know the beef version as Shepard’s pie.
This is my version of the dish, which I have made adjustments to over the years, so it is not exactly traditional. (more…)
