Leopards Pie because my mom got thick when people told her it was beef and so not Sheperd's Pie.



  1. Fill a pot with water add in some oil and salt, add in your potatoes and bring to the boil, turn it down when it begins to bubble. Check potatos with a fork, when fork goes through and breaks potato, drain them thoroughly.

  2. Add in your knob of butter and let it melt into the potatoes. Lightly mash and then add in your thyme\chives\spring onions\dijon and blitz with your masher. Add the cream to get the consistency you want. also add in some salt to get the desired flavour. Leave to the side for now.

  3. Get a large frying pan or wok. Put in some oil, heat it up to a medium heat and add your onions and garlic, after 30 seconds add your beef, stirring it until lightly browned. Add in the puree, stirring through then your carrots\peas\corn, mix through. spread the cornflour over the mix and stir through, add your stock mix and oregano. Knock up the heat to boil, then bring it back t let it simmer for a few mins.

  4. Pour your beef mix into an oven proof dish. now back to the potato mash, form the mash into patties and put them over the mince until it covers. Even it out with a spatula, with a fork make furrows all along it. With a pastry brush rub your beaten eggs on top of the mash.

  5. Place the dish into a preheated oven at 180 C. cook for 30-40 mins, longer if you want the potato extra crispy. You could also add a grated mozzarella\cheddar mix on top with 10 mins to go.

      1. Sadly my mother wouldn’t be able to but if instead you were actually saying your mother offered to make me food I’d be appreciative for sure.

    Sounds like the most epic cottage pie variant you could taste.

    Whenever I set to read everyone’s awesome articles I usually make sure I have some decent munchies handy. Y’all make me damn hungry all the time. The food articles have been nothing short of DELISH! I’m with you Skare! Who can I find to make this for me?

    AnAsal, I may have to upgrade the quality of my munchies just to get through your creations without too much frustration. 😀
