    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!

    Traditional Irish potato bread or potato cakes as they are sometimes callled. The perfect way of using up leftover mashed potato. Delicious with butter. You can't eat just one piece!

    Serve one as a starter, or two for a more substantial dinner. Serve with a green salad and a little aioli on the side. These are a great way to use up leftover potatoes too!

    These vegetable balls baked in the oven are light and can be served as a starter or a side dish. Ready in 30 minutes, it's a great way to eat vegetables prepared a bit differently.

    This is a great way to use up leftover mash. You can also freeze them once they've cooled, and then just pop them in the toaster to reheat!
