Shepherd’s pie is a hearty and delicious dish that is perfect for a cold winter day. It is made with ground lamb, vegetables, and a creamy gravy, and it is topped with mashed potatoes. Here is a simple recipe for making shepherd’s pie:


  • 1 pound of ground lamb
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can of diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can of condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/2 cup of beef broth
  • 1 teaspoon of dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1 (16 ounce) bag of frozen peas
  • 1 pound of potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1/4 cup of butter
  • 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the ground lamb. Drain off any excess grease.
  3. Add the onion, carrots, and celery to the skillet and cook until softened.
  4. Stir in the diced tomatoes, cream of mushroom soup, beef broth, thyme, salt, and pepper. Bring to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes.
  5. Stir in the frozen peas.
  6. In a medium saucepan, cook the potatoes in boiling water for 10-15 minutes, or until tender. Drain and mash with the milk, butter, and Parmesan cheese.
  7. Spread the lamb mixture in a 9×13 inch baking dish. Top with the mashed potatoes.
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the potatoes are golden brown.
  9. Serve hot.

Here are some additional tips for making shepherd’s pie:

  • For a leaner dish, you can use ground turkey instead of ground lamb.
  • To make the dish more flavorful, you can add in some chopped herbs, such as parsley, rosemary, or oregano.
  • You can use beef broth or water.
  • Serve shepherd’s pie with a side of green beans or corn for a complete meal.
  • Enjoy!
