The recipe has many variations, but the defining ingredients are minced red meat ("cottage pie"
refers to beef filling and "shepherd's pie" refers to lamb), cooked in a gravy or sauce with onions and sometimes other vegetables, such as peas, celery or carrots, and topped with a layer of mashed potato before it is baked. The pie is sometimes also topped with grated cheese to create a layer of melted cheese on top. Pie name refers to a top and bottom crust. This recipe is a casserole as there is just a topping of potatoes.
Shepherd's Pie Casserole is made with Milford Spice Company's It's all Greek to Me which is hand blended from Greek oregano, onion powder, garlic powder, sea salt, black pepper, parsley, Korintje cinnamon and ground nutmeg.
