Many people get Shepherd’s and cottage pie confused, I have even seen chefs get it wrong on menus. the difference between the two is that shepherd’s pie is made with lamb mince and cottage pie is made with beef mince.
A great way to save time and money is to watch out for special offers on mince then make a large one, half for now, the rest can be frozen for when needed. If you allow it to cool then portion it into single portions it makes a great back up dish to have in the freezer.
Simply wrap each portion in cling film before freezing. Doing it this way means you can heat as little or as many portions as needed rather than heating too much and wasting it.
If you use Bisto to thicken the sauce then it’s not gluten free. Knorr do a gluten free gravy I’ve been told or you could make your own!
The best endorsement I can give is that my fussy toddler loved it and asked for seconds! It will definitely be a staple meal in our house.
Have this once a week if possible as two little girls that don’t really eat veg devour this carrots, peas and all. Doesn’t last long in our house.
Make. this as often as I can . My 15 month old absolutely loves it and my partner who is hugely fussy and not a fan of veg has called it his favorite dinner ??
