Shepherd’s pie, also known as Cottage pie, is a meat pie with a crust of mashed potatoes. It is said that the term ‘Shepherd’s Pie’ should be used only if the meat is mutton or lamb (Courtesy: Wikipedia). Most countries have their own versions of this pie. It is a comforting and delicious one-dish-meal.
I tasted this dish for the first time at a party years back and I really loved it. Though I have tried out a lot of recipes from various sources, the one I got hooked onto was the recipe from Simply Recipes.
