    Turn the potato over halfway? I guess that will allow you to crisp both sides at the same time....

    Well ... the sauce also coats the underside making it especially tasty.

    Grated cheddar on cottage pie is an absolute requirement.
    But I believe minced lamb is flavoursome and fatty enough without the cheese!
    (And leeks not onions!)

    Easy right?
    Minced lamb with leeks, mint and perhaps
    peas topped with chunky mash and grilled.

    Today I was served a concoction of onion &
    beef mince topped with watery mashed potato
    and adorned by a slither of burnt tomato!

    What is the world coming to?
    It's no coincidence sir that Shepherd's pie is an anagram of:

    Shh spider pee.

    (That's the best I have to offer today).

    "Spider Pee" is the best the Duke has to offer?

    I recently went to a family gathering where I was given a home-brewed beer by a proud cousin.

    Spider Pee would have been an upgrade.

    Did you have the nerve to tell your proud cousin Pee would have been an upgrade?

    Just wondering. 😉

    I would like to have been there to see the look on your cousins face. Are you still invited over? 😉
