Shepherds Pie

I know many of you probably do this already ; but for those who don't, here is a way to make a bit more of your sheherds pie.
When you have put the mash on top make wells in it and crack an egg in each, you can also put tomato halves or slices between them, and sprinkle with a strong, tasty, grated cheese. Pop it into the oven to cook or heat through. Just serve with green beans or peas - it makes a lovely meal

That sounds as authentic as most Plughmans.

Or even Ploughmans.

I am sorry Kay, but some dishes shouldn't be fiddled with. in my opinion Shepherds pie is one of them.

Shepherd's Pie

I'm inclined to agree although I bet my 'mince' bit is a lot more tomato-y and herby than the way my mum used to make it!

"That sounds as authentic as most Plughmans."

Was there any need for that?

No where was it suggested it was authentic.

I'm sure the OP can stand up him/herself. No need to be touchy on their behalf.

It was meant ironically. No malice aforethought

best shepherd's pie tip

I read was from H F-W; don't mince the lamb but chop it into pea-sized pieces and it feels much better when eating.

Totally out of order, but I have come to expect it of WC

sheperds pie

ooh adding eggs on the top ,yes it would make a change to try that one out,but knowing my lot id end up with empty dish and the eggs left at the bottom .we do like a sprinkle of cheese though on it. also its nice i think to hear different ideas from members and little twists to recipes to try .
but i agree certain ones are best left alone ,

Shepherds/Cottage Pies

I make indentations in the mince meat base, and then spoon in baked beans, also adding a pinch of chilli flakes, makes a nice tasty change. I also always put cheese on top, (just 'cos we like it), and often top with mash which has sweated down leeks in it.
