Shepherds pie is a traditional family favourite in winter. It has always been a dish that I know will be devoured by all. The only issue I have as the cook is that I hate having to make mashed potato as well as the mince base. Yes… I know I’m a lazy cook!

I saw the idea of adding a potato gem topping to shepherds pie in a magazine recently and new this is my new “go to” dish. What a stroke of genius! This version gives the traditional shepherds pie a slightly more elegant presentation, plus the kids will love the potato gems! Actually, who wouldn’t love the gems crispy potato deliciousness?

This is what we call “a win for the good guys”. Meaning my Thermomix Shepherds Pie is easy to make, packed with vegetables, and has enough “kid appeal to pass the scrutiny of “little ones”. It’s a win for everyone.

The spinach and frozen mixed vegetables are reserved in the baking dish whilst the other ingredients are cooked off. The whole dish is then assembled and baked.

This is a complete dish which needs no additional accompaniments, however, a piece of garlic bread never goes astray!
