Shepherd’s Pie With Ground Beef

Shepherd’s pie

Shepherd’s pie with ground beef is one of my favorite comfort foods, and it’s nice and chilly outside. It’s a delicious casserole traditionally made with ground lamb.  Many people make this recipe with ground beef however, if you use ground beef it’s actually called Cottage Pie!  Either way, it’s a delicious crustless meat pie topped with mashed potato. The recipe can vary widely, but it is usually made with minced meat, cooked with onions, peas, celery, corn or carrots in a gravy.
