Shepherd's Pie is a traditional dish originating in England that consists of a bottom layer of minced (ground) lamb in gravy covered with mashed potato and a layer of cheese. This is baked in an oven.
The mince is traditionally lamb (hence "shepherd") although many people prefer to make it with minced (ground) beef. A shepherd's pie made with beef is called a cottage pie.
In North America, shepherd's pie is usually a layer of ground beef, a layer of corn and a layer of mashed potatoes.
