Do you cook cottage pie or shepherd's pie?

I used to think I was cooking shepherd's pie. Recently, someone told me that shepherd's pie is made with lamb and cottage pie with beef. I guess I never really had shepherd's pie. What about you? Which do you prefer?

 

This recipe for cottage pie is from the striped section of Apples for Jam.

It turned out fabulous. The only problem was that I didn't end up with many left-overs - most people had seconds.

I'm trying to think if I've ever made a cottage pie, I've made similar with leftover turkey and I once made a shepherd's pie with leftover lamb.

Both were tasty. I've made a couple of vegetarian variations that weren't as nice, but I had one vegetarian variation - red dragon pie - that was really tasty so I'm going to try again.

Sorry to be so late in replying.... Turkey sounds interesting. Not sure what flavours would go best in that.

I like both; depends on mood. Oh, and "most people had seconds"? That's a tremendous compliment.

Sorry to be so late in replying.... Thanks, but I feel like I owe a lot to the recipe. It was time-consuming, but so worth it.
