    YIELD: 6-8 servings
    INGREDIENTS

    The Filling:
    * Olive Oil (2 Tbsp)
    * Ground Lamb or Beef (about 1.5 lbs)
    * 1 Large Carrot (grated)
    * 1 Large Onion (grated)
    * bag of frozen peas
    * Fresh Rosemary
    * Fresh Thyme
    * Minced Garlic (I used 4 cloves)
    * Salt
    * Pepper
    * Worcestershire Sauce (several splashes)
    * Tomato Puree or Paste (no more than a small can)
    * Red Wine (several glugs)
    * Chicken Stock (not sure, but it looks like about 1/4 cup)
    The Mash:
    * Golden Potatoes (about 1.5 lbs)
    * Heavy Cream ( 1/4 cup)
    * Butter (3 1/2 Tbsp)
    * Salt
    * Pepper
    * Egg Yolks (2)
    * Parmesan Cheese (1/4 cup, minimum)

    PREPARATION

    Prep Work:

    * Dice the garlic
    * Separate your herbs from the stems
    * Separate your Egg Yolks
    * Peel and Slice your potatoes into even pieces
    * Open your wine if it's not already
    * Open your can of Tomato Paste

    Cooking the Potatoes:

    This part is easy as pie (no pun intended), just boil some water, throw some salt and your potatoes in, and set a timer for 15 minutes - start on your filling. Upon the timer going off, take your potatoes out and strain the water off. Put potatoes back into the pan, or into a medium mixing bowl. Mash the potatoes with their ingredients from above and keep warm (your filling should be about done by this point)

    Cooking the Filling:

    Pour Olive Oil into a hot, rather large pan, then add meat. Stir meat as if your life depends on it for a few minutes so it's nice and brown, and broken into very small pieces. Add your Rosemary, Thyme, and Garlic, then stir some more. Quickly add your Carrot, Onion, and frozen peas, stir a little longer. The idea at this point is to get everything to a minced consistency.

    Add Worcestershire Sauce, stir, add Tomato Puree, stir, add Red Wine and sweat down for a minute or two. Add chicken stock and cook for 3 more minutes.

    Final Instructions:

    Scoop your meat mixture into a deep casserole or other oven safe dish and then spoon the mash over the top. Spread the mash over the top of the mix with the bottom of the spoon and then sprinkle a generous portion of Parmesan cheese over the top. Poke the top with a fork several times to give it a peaked look and stick it in the oven at 400 degrees for 18-20 minutes to brown the potatoes and set the pie. Serve it up and watch people melt!

    Northern Ohio,
    Just a few things to say about things that happened earlier...


    Love the trick camping! Possum and your pullets could put on a show.....
    That will be a lot of "fun".


    Yorkshire, the Cottage pie looks so good. It is making me hungry.

    Looks good. I have also used left over roast cut up into small pieces, and leftover mashed taters as well. But then I have been accused of being cheep. Their words my choice would be frugal or master recycler. Off to do something still working on getting that last room back up and running. Nephew is leaving tomorrow. TTFN

    Well...The chickie I got yesterday was lonely so we just went back & got another (DH drove so I'm not hiding anything). I guess I have Smoke & Fog since they're both gray looking.

    If you're really desperate for some I think they could be overnighted with dry ice.
