:D Thanks so much. That is a great site. The recipies I found were most inlighting. We forget here in Michigan, that the pasties of the UP's claim of fame, were brought here by celtic settlers.
Thank you so much.  (gift)

Thanks Alaska for the Farmer's Almanac recipes! Unfortunately, my husband cought a glimpse of the ingredients for Haggis. We ate some Haggis for Burns Night - now he swears he will never eat Haggis again!  :(

My momma used to make shepherd's pie like this - the bottom layer, meaty part was made just like a meatloaf with oatmeal, onion, and an egg mixed with a pound of ground beef. Pat the raw meatloaf mixture into the bottom of your baking pan or iron skillet (should look like a big giant flat "hamburger"). Then the filling was mostly mashed potatoes, but we added other vegetables (in layers) if we had them, such as a layer of corn and a layer of green beans and then a layer of mashed potatoes. Then you smooth off the top and sprinkle it with a handful of grated cheese (cheddar is best but American cheese slices will do) and you bake it for about 30 - 45 minutes.

This was how my mother used up all of the leftovers in the refrigerator at the end of the week!  :O  (h)

::confused This recipe looks great; it is just what I wanted. The recipe calls for a swede, what is that? My brother is a  swede, but he sure weighs more than 3 ozs. I don't feel he would ad much flavor to the dish, though he could certainly spare 3 ozs at a time for many years.  :-0

Hi everyone,
  The shepards pie recipe I have used for many years is very simple. I usually take 5-6 large potatoes, slice them into 1"-2" chunks and boil until tender then I make mashed potatoes to taste, I then brown about 2 lbs of hamburger and season to taste, I then drain the grease and put the cooked meat into the bottom of a large cast iron dutch oven or a deep dish glass oven pan (or anything really), I flatten the meat so it is evenly in the bottom of the pan and I cover that with a 1" layer of corn (canned corn is fine), on top of this I put a
1 1/2" to 2" layer of mashed potatoes. I then cover the mixture and bake on 350 deg for 30 minutes I then uncover and bake for another 30 minutes or until the top of the mashed potatoes is a light golden brown. This may take longer or shorter depending on your oven. Its a very easy recipe and you really cant mess it up.  My kids all love this meal...as a matter of fact I think I might make it tonight. You could use shredded beef or lamb or probably anything of the sort and Im sure it would still taste great. Well I hope this helps...Take care
Mike

British Cottage Pie is made with minced beef. SHEPHERD's Pie is made from minced lamb - hence Shepherd in the title!

1.5 lb minced lamb
2/3 large carrots, peeled and sliced into rounds
1 large onion, cut in half and thinly sliced
half a medium sized swede, diced
About pint of stock
Salt and ground black pepper, to taste

Fry off the mince to brown it and then put into a deep saucepan. Then fry the onion until golden and add to the mince. Add the carrot and swede and add stock to just cover the ingredients. Bring slowly up to the boil and then simmer for approx one and a half hours, or until the meat and veg are cooked.

Boil a quantity of potatoes and mash with butter and milk.
Thicken the gravy of the lamb/veg mix  (I use cornflour, but arrowroot would do) so that the gravy now is coating all the veg, meat but no excess fluid is present.

Put this mix into a casserole or other oven proof dish. Cover the meat/veg mix with the mashed potatoes, put 'peaks' all over the top and dot with a little butter. Put under a hot grill until the peaks are nice and brown..

Voila... shepherd's pie! :D

I THINK that the nearest veg in the States to what we call swede is something called rutabaga? (or so some of my American friends tell me!;)

Yumm. We have one French Restaurant in the area that makes a great Shepards Pie. I just wish they would put it on their every day menu and not just their daily specials menu.
