It’s Sunday and we’re going to start bringing you a wee recipe from Scotland each week. The best part (or worst, you decide)- you don’t need to travel to Scotland to have it. This weeks featured recipe is Shepherds Pie!
This is a delicious staple in any Scottish household. We’ve all grown up on it. So often we have mince n tatties, and it’s a nice wee change to have it as a shepherds pie. You could even use leftovers from your mince and tatties the night before. We scots canny get enough!!
Just pop on over to Taylor’s Croft and grab yourself a packet of shepherds Pie Mix and you’re ready to get cooking!
What you’ll need is:
(Converted from Scottish recipe)
- 1 packet of Colman’s Shepherds pie seasoning mix
- 1lb of ground beef
- 1 large diced onion
- 1 1/4 cup of cold water
- 2 carrots sliced
- 1/3 lb of frozen peas
- 1 1/2 lb of mashed potatoes
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
Brown your mince (ground beef) and onions in a large pan. Drain the fat.
Blend the contents of your shepherds pie mix with the cold water and stir it into the mince, then add the carrots and peas. Bring to a boil, stirring continuously, then transfer to an oven safe dish.
Then you’ll spoon the mashed potatoes over the mince, and bake for 30 minutes.
