Shepherd's Pie

Shepherd's Pie

Shepherd's pie is originally a English dish, traditionally made with lamb or mutton. Quite easy to make, healthy and awefully delicious. I prepared this yesterday for dinner. Adding veggies to the minced meat, boiling and mashing potatoes and finally layering and baking the pie. I got super excited when it came out of the oven as it was my first baked pie, --- and it tasted really delicious!
Try it out for dinner and please don't forget to comment.
