Shepherd's pies

Warm and comforting, shepherd's pie is an old-style pub favorite ideal for a hearty winter meal. Consider using lean ground turkey, which has less saturated fat than beef. Carrots and peas enhance the shepherd’s pie filling, while mashed potatoes add calcium. For added convenience, use frozen vegetables instead of fresh.

recipe

Lean ground turkey has significantly less saturated fat than beef. It tastes rich and earthy when simmered with chipotle chili powder. Carrots and peas brighten the filling, while yogurt, stirred into the mashed potatoes and parsnips, adds calcium.

Next-day leftovers can be enjoyed all at once when combined in a delicious take on shepherd's pie. To bake individual pies, use six ten-ounce ramekins, and reduce cooking time twenty to thirty minutes.

Old-style pubs have it right: Sitting down to a generous helping of shepherd's pie is a true pleasure; making it is happily simple. We've added sharp cheddar to our mashed potatoes for a snappy topping.

recipe

This recipe for traditional lamb potpie makes eight individual servings (or two large pies instead). If you like, you can replace the lamb with ground beef. Cool pies completely before covering with plastic and freezing for up to three months. Reheat frozen pies (small or large) in a 375-degree oven for about an hour.
