    Need "Cottage Pie" Recipe!

    All of a sudden I'm dying for Cottage Pie. Does anyone have a good recipe? (I'll settle for Shepherd's Pie, but would prefer Cottage Pie)

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    Re: Need "Cottage Pie" Recipe!

    When I saw this thread all I saw was the word need in the new post thing. I thought to myself, I swear to God, if the next word is "codez" I'm going to puke.
    What an idiot....

    Yeah, I do that Twitter thing.

    The only difference between Cottage Pie and Shepherd's Pie is you use ground beef instead of ground lamb. Got a great Shepherd's Pie receipe if you want.

    Re: Need "Cottage Pie" Recipe!

    I make an easy one -

    Brown 1 pound of ground hamburger, drain. Stir in 2 cups of brown gravy and some chopped onion.

    Pour mixture in 9X13 glass casserole dish.

    Make mashed potatos. Top beef mixture with mashed potatos. Dot with butter.

    Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes until gravy thickens and potatos are slightly browned.



    Yum!!!

    Re: Need "Cottage Pie" Recipe!

    Good stuff, thanks!

    For some reason, I remembered cottage pie as also having a veggie layer between the meat & potatoes, and then cheese on the top. Or is that something else? Does this sound familiar to anybody?

    More complicated than DP's but REALLY tasty. I prefer with lamb, but some people just don't care for it!

    American version layers everything....I'm Scottish so like it the old fashioned way! You can always throw cheese on, sounds good actually!

    Re: Need "Cottage Pie" Recipe!

    Actually, it was a British lady who used to make it for us! But she'd lived in America for quite some time, so who knows.

    But yeah, I remember it as beef, veggies, potatoes, cheese (from bottom to top)

    Basically everything's cooked by the time it gets put into the pot, so I guess one could safely put the cheese on there and not worry about burning.

    Re: Need "Cottage Pie" Recipe!

    D'oh!! I forgot to add in the thyme, sage, black pepper and Worchester sauce, as in Wolfy's recipe. New I forgot something in my quick list!

    I've always made mine without veggies. Although, you could just add some mixed frozen veggies in the middle and it would turn out just fine.

    I prefer mine without cheese though.
