Delia Smith's Christmas - Shepherd's pie - Netflix

Shepherd's pie or cottage pie is a meat pie with a crust of mashed potato. The recipe can vary widely. The defining ingredients are minced meat (commonly beef when named cottage pie or lamb when named shepherd's pie), typically cooked in a gravy with onions and sometimes other vegetables, such as peas, celery or carrots, and topped with mashed potato. The pie is sometimes also topped with grated cheese.

Delia Smith's Christmas - Etymology - Netflix

The term cottage pie was in use by 1791, when the potato was being introduced as an edible crop affordable for the poor (cf. “cottage” meaning a modest dwelling for rural workers). The term shepherd's pie did not appear until 1854, and was used synonymously with cottage pie, regardless of whether the meat was beef or mutton. In the United Kingdom, the term shepherd's pie is now commonly used when the meat is lamb.
