Today we will be sharing a simple Shepherd’s Pie recipe. Shepherd’s Pie or cottage pie is an English dish traditionally made with lamb.

It is typically meat casserole topped with mashed potatoes (and vegetables).

You will definitely see a lot of ways how to make Shepherd’s Pie online. One good thing about this recipe is that Shepherd’s Pie ingredients can be easily bought in your nearest supermarket without any hassles.

What we are sharing right now is an easy and simple Shepherd’s Pie recipe that uses ground beef. You can easily cook this recipe at home. Homemade recipes can be easily done with 100% ceramic cookware as well.
