Irish Shepherd’s Pie

18 Reviews / 4.7 Average
Adapted from Joy of Cooking, I'm excited to share a truly Irish recipe that is perfect for St. Patrick's Day. This Shepherd's Pie is filled with ground lamb, but you can sub for ground beef to make it Cottage Pie. This was a hit with the whole family!

Not only is this dish a festive one, but it’s a really easy and tasty dinner that’s sure to please all those “meat and potato” lovers out there.

I’d recommend serving a big green salad on the side in addition to the veggies that are already included in the recipe. This one was a HUGE hit with my kids (and my husband, too). Enjoy!

  1. Yummy! This recipe calls for a sprig of rosemary and thyme. I usually do not have fresh herbs, and I do not live near a store that has those. What can I use instead? Can I use the dry herbs, and if so, what is a proper quantity? Thank you for all you do!

    1. Yes, you can use dry. The conversion is usually one tablespoon of fresh herbs to 1 tsp of dry. A 4-inch sprig of thyme will yield between 1/4 and 3/4 teaspoon of leaves. 1 sprig of rosemary, substitute with 1 teaspoon of dried needles. – Nicole
