This is the first time I made cottage pie, I’ve always thought it was called shepherds pie but when I was searching up recipes I realized that shepherds pie uses lamb but cottages pie uses growing beef and that’s what I used. It turned out really well. I added mustard to the mashed potato to give it more favour, I read in the comments that it tastes better with it. I didn’t realize it takes an hour to cook but it was totally worth it, it tastes so heavenly. I first added the meat and onions to the pan and let the cook. I added the spices and then worked on the potato part. It needed Nut meg and it needed the regular things that mashed potato needs. After the meat was done, I needed to add the carrots, I didn’t have the celery but I don’t like celery so I didn’t mind.
