Happy St. Paddy's Day! This warm and hearty cottage pie recipe is perfect if you're wondering what to make for this festive day!
I know that I'm a bit late for the occasion and that Cottage Pie and Shepherd's Pie are actually British recipes! But I think I and other people associate it with St. Paddy's Day for some reason, not quite sure why! But whatever the occasion, I can guarantee that this meaty cottage pie recipe will blow you away! I absolutely love the rich and creamy mashed potatoes paired with the thick mince mixture! I personally like my mixture to be a bit saucy yet a bit dry if that makes sense, but feel free to adjust the consistency to your liking. Everything in this recipe absolutely goes hand in hand together for a real explosion of flavours. So scrumptious and I really recommend having this on a chilly winter's night. Also feel free to use this mashed potato recipe for any dish that needs some great mashed potatoes for a side!
So let's get ready to enjoy this epic feast and get cooking. Enjoy this cottage pie recipe in a personal casserole or make it for the whole family by making it in a larger one!

For the mashed potatoes
For the mince
*Note: If using fresh peas, boil in water for 5-7 minutes or until soft and cooked.
**Note: If each potato is 7 OZ in weight, steam for 10 min, 9 OZ for 12 min, adjust depending on the size of the biggest potato.
***Note: Ensure potatoes are warm and mince is cooked to layer properly. If mince is warm or potatoes are cold, it will be hard to spread the potatoes to create a clean even layer.
