Recipe: Cottage Pie
Disney Location: Rose and Crown Pub, United Kingdom (EPCOT)
Cottage Pie is a traditional English dish that is served at the Rose and Crown Pub in the United Kingdom (EPCOT.) Basically it’s a Shepherd’s Pie but instead of using lamb the Cottage Pie is made with beef as the main ingredient. Topped off with some made-from-scratch mashed potatoes, this is a winner for the whole family.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1/4 cup Butter
1 cup Diced Onion
1 1/2 pounds Lean Ground Beef
Salt and Freshly Ground Pepper (to taste)
1/4 teaspoon Ground Savory
1 cup Brown Gravy
2 cups Mashed Potatoes
Heat 1/4 cup butter in a 9-inch skillet. Add onion and cook until lightly browned, stirring. Add beef, salt, pepper and savory and continue cooking 5 minutes longer. Stir in gravy and heat until bubbling. Spoon into a buttered 8-cup flat casserole dish. Top meat mixture with mashed potatoes. Dot with pieces of butter. Bake at 400°F for 15 to 20 minutes or until potatoes are lightly browned.
As always, the quality of the ingredients will improve the taste of the dish. Make sure you take the extra time to make your own mashed potatoes as the boxed instant kind doesn’t quite give you the right taste.
