Sheppard's pie (lamb)

Sheppards Pie

Super basic recipe

- 1 lb ground lamb
- Salt + black pepper
-1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce 
- 1 tbsp oil

In a large pan or pot add the oil and heat to medium high.  Brown the lamb moving it around constantly with a wooden spoon until it's done.

Add seasoning, salt, black pepper and Worcestershire sauce. Set aside.

Use leftover mashed potatoes to top the casserole and broil until the top is golden brown. 

If you're going to make the  potato part of the recipe then peel and roughly chop 8 medium potatoes and add to a large pot of cold salted water.  Cook on medium high, uncovered (or it'll overflow!) until potatoes are tender. Strain water.

Heat about 1/2 cup milk in the microwave.
Add strained potatoes back to the pot and over medium heat begin to mash them using a whisk, potato masher or fork. Move them around to "Dry" up a bit on the heat ... Add the hot milk and 2 tbsp butter.  Mix until creamy.

Now layer over the ground lamb in the casserole dish and broil.
