Shepherd’s Pie

1 lb ground lamb
1 medium onion chopped
2-3 cloves garlic
5-6 Potatoes, peeled, cooked & mashed
1 cup frozen peas
2 tbsp flour
1 1/2 cup milk
3/4 cup sour cream
salt & pepper
1/2 tsp ground fennel
1 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped carrots (optional)
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese

Brown lamb with onions, celery, and carrots, season with salt & pepper, add garlic and fennel, and cook a couple of minutes longer. Sprinkle flour over meat mixture and mix in well. Pour milk over meat and stir until it thickens a bit then turn the heat down. Add sour cream and peas. Place in a casserole dish and top with mashed potatoes. Sprinkle cheese over potato topping, and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
The fun thing about shepherds pie is that you can add many different things to it to make it your own. It is a great way to clean out leftovers too. Have fun with it. For us it is winter comfort food.
