    Chopped onion, 1/4 C gravy powder, 1 C stock, 1 Tbspn worcestershire sauce, 1 Tbspn tomato sauce, salt and pepper.

    Combine and bring to boil, then simmer til onion is tender.

    Stir in 500g of finely diced roast lamb, or cooked lamb mince. Transfer to casserole dish, then put 3 C of mashed potato over top. Cook for 30-40 min at 180 degrees.

    Omg delicious! Have had several fussy eaters ask for me to bring this to bbqs (we often do it in one with the hood down).

    Serve with steamed carrots, minted peas, whatever.

    First things first, it must be made with lamb!

    One of my pettiest pet hates is when people refer to cottage pie (which is made with beef mince) as shepherd's pie

    Here's my recipe:

    Ingredients
    750g lean cooked roast lamb
    25g butter
    2 onions, chopped
    3 tablespoons plain flour
    1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
    1 1/2 cups chicken stock
    2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce (or more if you love it! You can also add more after it's been served up.)

    Potato topping
    1/2 cup milk
    30g butter
    4 large potatoes, cooked and mashed

    Method
    1. Grease a 2 litre casserole dish and preheat oven to 210C. Trim the meat of fat and cut into small cubes. Melt the butter in a large pan. Add the onion and cook until golden.
    2. Sprinkle the flour and mustard into the pan and stir for 1 minute. Remove from heat, gradually add the stock and stir until smooth. Return to hear, bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer for 3 minutes.
    3. Add the meat and Worcestershire sauce to the pan and stir. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat and spoon mixture into casserole dish.
    4. To make the potato topping, mix the milk and butter (and salt and pepper to taste) into the mashed potato. Spread evenly over the meat and rough up the surface with a fork. Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the topping is lightly golden and the pie is completely heated through.

    Cottage Pie:
    Lentils, pumpkin, sweet potato, carrot, capsicum, onion, spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, peas, corn, gravy, all cooked in the slow cooker. Potato made into mash, then the filling put into baking dish, topped with mash, bake until it looks ready.

    (vegan and gluten free)

    Glare at it! Try adding the stock a bit at a time, so you get a paste and gradually make it wetter.

    You've inspired shepherds pie for this weekend at my place!
