Some time ago I had Shepherd's Pie that was made with shredded rather than minced lamb. It was to die for and I really wanted the recipe. I love doing a roast shoulder of lamb and I thought let's give it a go with the leftover meat. The result was stunning, so I've decided to share the recipe. This is my first recipe submission!
When you do your roast, make double the amount of mashed potato so you have enough left over for the Shepherd's Pie.
Include swede and carrots in your mash recipe - and a few tablespoons of creme fraiche. Serve your Shepherd's Pie with peas. There's something about lamb and peas, it's just a winning combination!
It was challenging to sweat the onions that were not included in the ingredients list........... - 12 Sep 2011
Made this for my wife the other night and she loved it. I didn't have any leeks, so added some celery and carrots. Added a bit of grated cheese on the mash (my own preference). It came out great and was a nice change from the usual minced beef/lamb versions. - 30 Jan 2013
Used different ingredients. This tasted great. I added a handful of diced carrot because I had some to hand and instead of mashed potato I topped my version with cheese mashed cauliflower. YUM - 30 Nov 2010
