How to Make Shepherd Pie at Home

Shephered Pie

Are you bored of eating apple pie? Then I have something which you will love and it can replace your apple pie also. You want to know what is it? It is Shepherd Pie. I learned the Shepherd Pie Recipe from my uncle who has a Pie Cafe where he sells different varieties of pies.

When I went to his cafe for the first time, I asked him to suggest to me the best pie he makes and he suggested to me Shepherd Pie. I ordered Shepherd Pie and I found it delicious. I asked him about the recipe and luckily he gave me.

Today, I was thinking about what to make for breakfast and I thought to make Shepherd Pie. While making my breakfast, I thought to share the Shepherd Pie Recipe with my lovely people over here. But first, I’ve mentioned some other cherry pie recipes that I think you should definitely try at your home.

1. Lemon Meringue Pie An incredible, classic sweet and tart dessert, lemon meringue pie is more like a sweet dream. The pie filling surely makes you crazy, prompting you to have it over and over again. Nothing can beat a simple and quick-to-make lemon meringue pie.

2. Sausage PieSausage Pie is a vintage recipe that has a flaky crust, and a savory sausage cheese base. This easy sausage pie recipe is so easy to make and requires just a few ingredients. 

3. Meat Pie These meat pies are delicious pastries filled with minced beef, pork, potato and onion. The pastry is slightly flaky and very rich in flavor, the filling is moist and very flavorful.

4. Seafood PieThe good thing about this pie is that it is very adaptable- add your favorite seafood and dial-up or down the creaminess by adjusting the amount of cream.
