Shepherd’s Pie

I don’t think I’ve ever made this before. As I’m reading the recipe’s introduction: “In the Cuisine Test Kitchen, we agreed that this is one Brit food worth bringing over the pond” I realize that it’s just 2 short days after the big Royal Wedding I’ve been trying to NOT jump on the bandwagon of. Yet here I am…making Shepherd’s Pie. It turned out pretty good – needed a lot more salt & pepper than the recipe noted – and was a great way to use up some leftover mashed potatoes!

Grilled pie? Yes, grilled pie! If you’ve ever made a “rustic tart” (which I haven’t) you’ve made a pie suitable for grilling. Just put it all on a heavy-duty foil tray instead of a baking sheet, cooked over indirect heat in a covered grill for 30 minutes and you’ve just grilled pie! What a thing of beauty…if I do say so myself!
