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!

This is one of my favourite meals that I remember my mother making. I loved coming home from school to it. I have never had it anywhere else. The lamb can be easily substituted with beef. A great way to use up leftovers!

I adore the combination of rich mutton meatiness and spicy curry in this dish. It's a proper hearty winter warmer of a dish, and pretty much a meal in itself, as it is so thick and substantial. This recipe uses leftover meat from a roast, and some good quality mutton stock, which you should make from the bones. The quality of a soup like this depends largely on the quality of the stock.

Warm and comforting recipe from my mum. Great for those lamb or roast beef leftovers (best with lamb though). Use leftover gravy, or buy shop bought gravy.

Lamb leftovers are transformed into an aromatic and flavourful curry in under an hour with this great recipe. Perfect for a Monday night to use up what's left of the Sunday lamb roast.

This shepherds pie is my husband's favourite dinner so I made this version for him on Valentine's day!

My nan used to make this delicious meal with leftovers. It is now one of our favourites. Lamb chops can be used as an alternative to lamb shoulder.

Fantastic for using up meat leftovers like lamb or beef, especially from a weekend roast. This is an easy one pot dish and perfect for midweek suppers.

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).
