Shepherd’s pie is a classic comfort food recipe that’s healthy, hearty and filling. The bottom layer is a simple a mix of ground lamb and vegetables, simmered into a delicious savory sauce. Then, it’s topped with fluffy and creamy mashed potatoes that form a golden crust. It’s an easy, cozy meal the whole family will love!

  1. I hope you enjoy this easy, gluten-free version of Shepherd's Pie! I've been eating it on repeat all week and the leftovers are YUM!!! For tons of variations on this recipe, make sure to visit the full recipe post (linked in the description). Can't wait to see you guys whip it up! 🙂 xo – Lisa

  2. Yum yummm!! I admit I've never tried it with ground lamb so I've always made cottage pie. And when I saw a shepherd's pie before you got started I thought in my head, well, she's actually going to make cottage pie. But you fooled me. I still kind of like Emeril's version, he says "what's this here" sauce but the Brits that I've heard talk about how to pronounce Worcester say. Wuh-(like push) ster-sher. I've been watching your videos afternoon but haven't really been commenting. But I have been liking. I am curious though typically my cottage pie involves a bag of frozen peas and carrots already cut LOL I've always heard that Frozen are pretty much as nutritious as fresh but what is your take on that? I know fresh carrots taste much better by far. I've really been enjoying your videos.

  3. Made this recipe yesterday and it was delicious! I used beef instead of lamb and added some red pepper cut into small cubes.
    I dont eat gluten and your channel is a place where i know i will always find something delicious and safe.

    Now, we need you to make a fish pie!!!

  4. Shepherds pie is a staple in our house although we have used beef exclusively. I used to love lamb but after my second pregnancy developed a problem with it. I can't even smell it without nausea. Beef works great and everyone loves it. Side note: you can use small metal cookie cutters with a firm cooked sliced potatoes and decorate the top. The kids love this and it can be a festive addition for Halloween, Christmas, etc. I put a little oil on the cutter to prevent sticking.
