If chilly nights have got you in the mood to eat warmer, heartier dinners, you've definitely got to try this simple Cottage Pie recipe. Cottage Pie (also known as Shepherd's Pie) is a savory, comfort-food classic, and the absolute perfect meal to make on a crisp fall or winter evening.


  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • About 6 servings of instant mashed potatoes
  • Mixed veggies (I used a frozen bag of carrots, green beans, corn, and peas)
  • Shredded cheese
  • 1 packet of gravy
  • *Optional* Ketchup or tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce

This recipe will easily serve a family of four, and the ingredients can be altered based on how many are eating the meal.
