Hungry? Need something super delicious? So, here we are going to make a skillet shepherd’s pie. So, it is super easy to cook you know. Certainly, the great advantage of it is that it is cooked in only one pan, O wow! No piles of utensils to wash out. Only one pan and recipe are ready. Therefore, It is usually made with lamb meat. Meanwhile, the mashed potatoes are loaded over it and it gives it a completely different texture. In other words, it is super easy to cook and yummy to serve on the table. It is also called cottage pie.
Note the difference between the two; Shepherd’s pie and cottage pie?
Shepherd’s pie is mostly cooked with the meat of lamb and cottage pie is usually cooked with the beef. This is the difference between the two only.
Another very interesting fact about Shepherd pie is that in Scotland, Scottish people load beef with the pastry, not with the mashed potatoes. So, does it sounds interesting? I will try it out someday for sure.
