You won't regret trying this classic meal!

What’s the Difference Between Shepherd’s Pie and Cottage Pie?

Have you ever wondered what the difference is between Shepherd’s Pie and Cottage Pie? While these two dishes may sound similar, they have some key differences that make them stand out.

Let’s take a closer look at what makes each dish unique, and why one might be better suited to your tastes than the other

What Is Shepherd’s Pie?

Shepherd’s Pie is a traditional English dish made with ground minced meat or mutton, vegetables (typically carrots, onions, celery, peas), and a mashed potato topping. It is usually baked in a casserole dish.

The combination of savory minced meat with creamy mashed potatoes makes it a comforting and hearty meal that can easily feed an entire family

What Is Cottage Pie?

Cottage pie is very similar to shepherd’s pie but uses ground beef instead of minced meat or mutton. It also typically includes other ingredients like Worcestershire sauce or tomato paste for extra flavour.

The beef filling gives this dish a distinctly different taste from its counterpart; however, it is just as delicious and comforting as shepherd’s pie

What To Serve With Shepherd's Pie

Shepherd's pie pairs great with simple sides like steamed vegetables or a green salad. You can also add some crusty bread on the side if you'd like more carbs in your meal.

If you're looking for something more substantial, try serving shepherd's pie alongside mashed potatoes or boiled potatoes - both are classic accompaniments that will complement this savoury dish perfectly!

Tips For Making Shepherd's Pie

If you want to give your shepherd's pie an extra kick of flavour, try adding some herbs like rosemary or thyme to the mashed potato topping before baking it in the oven.

You can also experiment with different types of cheeses like cheddar or Parmesan to give your shepherd's pie even more depth of flavour


Whether you choose to make shepherd's pie or cottage pie, both dishes are sure to hit the spot when it comes to comfort food classics!

Both dishes are easy to make ahead of time so you can enjoy them for days on end - perfect for those busy weeknights when you need something quick yet delicious! Be sure to experiment with different ingredients and flavours so you can make these classic dishes even more unique - happy cooking!​
