Ooooo! Without asking you to give your recipe, what do you use for the meat in your Shepherds pie? Veggies? Thank you, G!
I wonder if there's such a thing as German Shepherds pie? Use knockwurst? ...
My daughter is vegetarian, so I am using soy crumbles in place of meat.....dont feel like making 2 meals tonight.
Heres the recipe I use; Shepherd's Pie Recipe : Alton Brown : Food Network
I dont roast the veg, and I just use a bag of frozen mixed, it works just as well and saved oodles of time.
Mind if I add my two cents about pot pies? They're so quick and comforting, not to mention versatile. You can use any meat and any veg. So, really, it's mostly a question about technique and style, isn't it? For example, I don't like pastry crust, so, I found a remarkably easy technique for pot pies that will have them on your table in 30 minutes. What do I do for a crust? I cover them with puff pastry instead. Light and buttery!
My inspiration for pot pies, and my technique, style and passion for cooking in general, is Nigella Lawson. Here's a YouTube video of Nigella making her pot pies. Again, look more for how she makes them than what meat or veg are in them. Those are 100% interchangeable.
There's 3 inches of snow on the ground from last night, and it's chilly in the 30's now, will drop into the 20's tonight. I'll have a fire in the fireplace. I have a roast, potatoes, and onions in the crock pot for supper tonight. Will make corn bread, a green salad, some ice tea, and for dessert an apple pie with some vanilla ice cream.
