Scottish Recipes - Shepherds Pie
Scotland is a country where sheep are plentiful especially in the Highlands area where hill farming is still quite common. It shouldn't be a surprise therefore that one of the traditional meat dishes uses lamb as its main ingredient.
At the same time, cook the potatoes in boiling water for 20 minutes until tender. Drain well, mash with the butter and milk and mix well. Spread on top of the mince mixture and sprinkle over with the grated cheese.
Bake for 15-25 minutes in a pre-heated oven at 200C/400F. Commonly the meat juice will sizzle slightly up the side and over the potato. Once cooked serve whilst still warm with vegetables
