Combination Shepherd’s pie and Cottage pie

A combination shepherd’s pie and cottage pie is called what? I have no idea. I’m also topping it with mashed sweet potato rather than potato so it’s truly behind a hybrid, it is an all out mutated mess of a pie but I guarantee you this tastes the bomb.

Questions and answers

 

What do you call a combination of a shepherd’s pie and cottage pie?

I was thinking Cottherd’s pie or Shepage pie. Given I’ve used sweet potato, it could be healthful or wellness inspired Cottherd’s pie or Shepage pie given sweet potato is all the rage.

Why do people mix up shepherd’s pie and cottage pie?

I don’t know. A shepherd’s pie is made with lamb and a cottage pie is made with beef.

What’s your favourite?

In a meat pie I really like a cottage pie. For a meal, I really like a shepherd’s pie especially served with vegetables.

Could you do this with a pressure cooker rather than a slow cooker?

Yes, it would be easy in a pressure cooker. I just like the whole ritual of the slow cooker.

  1. Ohmigawd, the osso bucco is making me drool! 🙂 And shepard’s pie is my total weakness! Yum, yum, yum!!

    By the way, I never asked…what is “Lummy”? In “Yummy Lummy”?

    It’s an amazing name for a blog, but I don’t know what “lummy” means. Edu-mah-cate me, puh-lease!

    1. My youngest brother got called Yummy Lummy by girls and when I started food blogging a friend at work suggested it, I figured, why not.

    2. It has a wonderful ring to it……which of course made me ask. Ha! ♥︎

      Good night you! It’s tomorrow night there…and it’s 2:38 am here. I have to be at the frickin’ courthouse in 5 hours. Bleh!

  2. I really thought shepherd’s pie was made with beef all this while… So then it’s cottage pie then. Usually I’m not a fan of sweet potato. But one time I had sweet potato mash with bits of bacon – that was amazing. Maybe an idea for your next pie, Gaz 😀

    1. Mmm…Mabel, you’re on to something there with the bacon pieces in the sweet potato. I have half the pie leftover, there would be bacon pieces added 😋

    2. Fried bacon pieces. You can never go wrong with that 😄 Let me know how it goes if you give that combo a whirl. This is one combo where the sweet and savoury go so well together 🙂

    3. Fried bacon pieces. You can never go wrong with that 😄 Let me know how it goes if you give that combo a whirl. This is one combo where the sweet and savoury go so well together 🙂

  3. This does look good! Well, except for the corn. I don’t like corn. I enjoy reading your recipes, I learn so many things. I had no idea of the difference between shepherd and cottage pies. I thought all tater topped casseroles were shepherd’s pie! I also have another question. What on earth is a stick blender???? A fork? A wooden spoon? Is it like calling walking ‘shank’s mare’ or ‘sailing by the ash breeze’ using an oar?
