Leslie's Shepard's Pie

Posted: Updated:

Shepard's Pie a London Delight

This dish was developed in the United Kingdom back in 1800s and was a way for those living on a lower income to use left over beef and cheap potatoes to make a meal.

One should note that it was often called "cottage pie" because of the modest homes or cottages of the rural workers. Only shepards pie has beef!! Cottage pie is mainly mutton!

To make this dish:

One half pound of hamburger meat

One diced green pepper

One small onion diced

One cup of shredded cheddar

Mashed potatoes

Brown the meat with pepper and onion. Salt and pepper to taste. Make your mashed potatoes and line a pie pan with them. All the way up the sides of the pan put meat mixture on top of potatoes and frost with other potatoes. Sprinkle with cheese and bake in oven til cheese melts.
