Heckerty’s Trivia Alert!!

(Traditional shepherd’s pie is made with lamb.

Cottage pie is made with beef!)


Line a baking dish with pie crust and bake it according to directions.

In a skillet heat a little oil and sauté the onions until golden and clear.

Add the meat and the spices until meat is browned.

Then add the peas – sauté for 2 minutes
