Shepherd’s Pie

This is one of my favourite comfort foods. I usually choose between chicken or lamb mince.

Its pretty simple and you can (like many other foods) tweak it to your taste. Its a layered pie – the bottom layer is cooked mince, topped with mashed potatoes and baked all the way through.

Cook the mince with onions, herbs, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, ketchup, mustard, salt and whatever else you like. I feel parsley really brings the flavours out, i always end up using it. You can also add finely chopped carrots, some peas, celery, if you like to the mince while cooking.

Once done. get started on the mashed potatoes. Boil and mash them. I add milk, mustard, salt, pepper. You can add butter, cheese and even cream to make it as rich as you like.

That’s it. Assemble the pie and put it in the oven at about 180c for 30-40 minutes till you have a nice browned top.
