Shepard's pie is my idea of comfort food and a real winter warmer.  There are a few alterations to the traditional recipe.

Shepard's Pie Ingredients

Ingredients

1tbsp. olive oil

1 large onion, chopped

2-3 medium carrots, chopped

500g pack lamb mince

2tbsp. tomato purée

1tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

500ml beef stock

900g sweet potatoes, cut into chunks

85g butter

3tbsp. milk

Instructions

Heat the oil in a medium saucepan, then soften the onion and carrots for a few minutes.

When soft, turn up the heat; crumble in the lamb and brown, tipping off any excess fat.

Add the tomato purée and Worcestershire sauce, and then fry for a few minutes.

Pour over the stock, bring to a simmer, then cover and cook for 40 minutes, uncovering halfway.

Meanwhile, heat the oven to 180 degrees c / 350 degrees f.

Steam the sweet potatoes until they are tender.

When the sweet potatoes are cooked, mash them with the milk and butter to make a smooth paste.

Put the mince into an ovenproof dish, top with the mash and ruffle with a fork.

Bake for 20 minutes or until the top is starting to colour and the mince is bubbling through at the edges.

Leave to stand for 5 minutes before serving.
