About this recipe: A great way to use up leftover roast lamb. You could swap the lamb for beef to do a cottage pie (I've not tried this, but they are pretty much the same thing).

I used beef stock cubes, and leftover lamb shoulder topped up with minced beef (as these were what I had), and the filling was still nicely lamby.
