Shepherd's pie definitely falls into the comfort food category. Meat, potatoes and vegetables all in one dish is another reason I love it. This is my interpretation and although it may use some typical ingredients found in most popular shepherd's pie recipes, some of the ingredients and procedures will differ. It is very hearty, flavorful and an absolute perfect food for a cold winter day.
2 1/2 lbs russet potatoes peeled and chopped
3 lbs ground veal (or beef)
1 large onion, medium dice
1 1/2 cups of corn
1 1/2 cups of fresh or frozen peas
1 large carrot, medium dice
4 cloves of garlic, peeled and finely diced
1 1/2 cups of beef stock
1 1/2 cups of creme fraiche
4 TBSP of unsalted butter
1 cup of milk
salt and pepper , to taste
Now add peas and corn, cook for a few minutes until warmed through.
