WWDH - Shepherds Pie



It's Wednesday again, and this week's Wednesday with Donna Hay recipe was Shepherds Pie, chosen by yours truly.  A number of people have preceded us, so you can for instance find the recipe online here.

I liked the rich, red meaty sauce topped with cheesy potato.  I also liked that this is a complete meal in itself, as it contains peas, carrots and onion.

My Mum doesn't put herbs in her Shepherds Pie, so I found the thyme and bay flavours a little odd, although not unpleasant.  Just like Mum, I added a dash of hot suace (Worcestershire sauce) to the mince for extra flavour.

This dish is a keeper.

This was a good pick, Gaye. I have been using the same recipe for many years and now I have a new one. This is the best recipe for it I have had in ages.

This makes me think back to Dorie's hachi parmentier! Now I want some!

I used to always ask for shepherd's pie when I was little as I love the mashed potato topping! :D

Yours looks wonderful. This will be a recipe that we use over and over again. It was such a nice blend of flavors and went together so easily. Mark really loved it, thanks for a great pick!

Thanks for selecting this. It was a huge success. I love the addition of the Worcestershire. I thought about adding some hot sauce but forgot.

Oh, how I enjoy a good Shepherd's pie, but I haven't had some in the longest time. This looks so good and I like the idea of adding some Worcestershire sauce. Mum's always have the best ideas.

such a sentimental favourite - and probably quite welcome in our recent cold snap, though not in the current hot weather :-)
