Cottage Pie

This is my first attempt in making a cottage pie. Usually people refer this as shepherd's pie but I used beef as base, therefore, it is a cottage pie instead of a shepherd's pie. To make a shepherd's pie, the ingredient has to be lamb instead of beef. that's what I gathered from the internet during my search for recipes.

I used a very basic ingredients : minced beef, onion, carrots, tomatoes, mashed potatoes, butter and milk. Did not add any savoury gravy to the beef mixture which I planned to do initially but I forgot all about it during my cooking.

I tried this recipe with our gathering in mind. We will be having a Merdeka Day gathering at Angie's new home, thought of bringing a cottage pie as part of my contribution, but suddenly I remember one of our friend, Vivien, does not take beef. So I will be bringing Orange Swiss Roll instead (bought from shop).

Meantime, back to my cottage pie.
