Mini Cottage pies

Whilst wondering what to do with the residual beef from my extra large Sunday lunch beef roast I fell across my lovely little tapas dishes and thought they’d make perfect mini cottage pies.

On that topic is it cottage or shepherd’s pie? After a quick google apparently beef is cottage and lamb is shepherd’s. Who knew?

So it really is as simple as browning off the bits of beef in a pan with butter. Coat them with flour and seasoning and add to the dishes. I the poured on some beef stock; dash of Worcester sauce and balsamic vinegar. I added a few peas then topped with mash potato (residual from sunday lunch).

Bake at 25 minutes at 200 degrees until golden brown.

Serve with veggies and gravy.
