What is Cottage Pie?

Cottage Pie is made with minced meat and topped with a layer of mashed potatoes.  It made its debut back in the late 1700’s in Ireland and the UK and has become a popular dish worldwide.

Is Cottage Pie The Same As Shepherd’s Pie?

It’s often referred to as Shepherd’s Pie, which is very similar, but traditionally Shepherd’s Pie is made with lamb and not beef.  Which makes total sense – right? Shepherds look after sheep, therefore the dish is comprised of lamb.  They were both considered peasant meals, because they were an economic way to use leftover roasted meat.
