Cottage Pie by George Motz
American , Ground Beef
Cottage Pie is essentially Shepard’s Pie where the lamb ‘mince’ (as the Brits would say) is replaced by beef. Cottage Pie actually predates Shepard’s by many decades and may have origins in peasant cooking going all the way back to the mid-1700s. That would make this dish around 250 years old! It was devised as a way to use leftovers in a pie, mixed with beef and topped with cheddary mashed potatoes.
