Traditionally a cottage pie recipe is made with beef and a shepherd's pie is made with lamb, but they are both delicious as these recipes show.
This is a delicious and hearty pie which is very quick to throw together. If you prefer you can substitute lamb mince and call it a shepherd's pie.
A great British recipe, this is a hearty dinner dish that is always a favourite with the the whole family and friends.
A very traditional English cottage pie with beef, onions, carrots, potatoes and seasonings. Best served with fresh green peas.
When my vegetarian friends come around I fall back to this dish which is always well received. You can make the day before then store in the fridge, I find this makes it hold together much better when serving.
Beef cottage pie is classic comfort food. If you want you can add some sweet potatoes or parsnip into the mashed potato crust.
