Meat Loaf or Shepherd's Pie?
Moroccan Style Shepherd's Pie, with dried figs & apricots and some Ras El Hanout spice mixture topped with Sweet Potatoes.... also awesome and definitely not just "plain old Shepherd's Pie".
Lamb & Eggplant Shepherd's Pie... shhhh, don't tell my Honey about the eggplant. I think it's time to make some again very soon.
In fact, some version or other of meatloaf with potato + topping is often served up here. In large part because I really don't have to THINK when putting it all together. Not to mention a great use of leftover cooked vegetables.
meatloaf like this one, topped with a roasted sweet potato and some leftover roasted parsnips, potatoes and... I swear, just half of one small beet which turned it a brilliant shade of red. I served it with some Roasted Pecan Brussels Sprouts, drizzled with a little maple syrup during the last 10 minutes of cooking. Comfort Heaven on a plate!
And, naturally, my daughters would tell me that no matter how delicious it was, I should stop calling my carb topped meatloaf "Shepherd's Pie". So a little poll.... is your Shepherd's Pie soupy or firm?
