This is my take on a classic shepherd’s pie. I change the topping to make it quicker and easier to make for days when I am too busy to make a pot of mash, though if I am honest, I mainly do it to cut down on the washing up, which I hate doing.
The mistake many make is to confuse shepherd’s pie with cottage pie. Shepherd’s pie uses lamb mince and cottage pie uses beef mince.
Don’t use bisto if you want it gluten free.
