This pie is wonderful; rich, spiced and full of flavor. With nutmeg in the potatoes and paprika in the meat, it's a savory treat that everyone will enjoy. It has a tiny little kick of heat...

How to Make Savory Shepherd's Meat & Potato Pie


  1. Peel the potatoes and quarter them. Put them into a pot of cold water and bring to a boil, lower heat and cook until tender.
  2. In a large bowl, mash the potatoes with the butter and milk; add the salt, pepper, and nutmeg to taste; then the egg yolks and cheese, mix and set aside until needed.
  3. Brown the beef.

    Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. (F)
  4. In a small pan add butter, and the onion and bell pepper and caramelize them.
  5. Combine the caramelized vegetables with the meat and add the beef broth and bay leafs bringing to a boil, and boil until there is almost no liquid left.
  6. When ready, remove from heat, take out the bay leaves, and add the salt, pepper, and paprika, making sure to mix well.
  7. In a greased casserole pan, layer in half the potato mixture, then all of the meat mixture, then add the sliced eggs and top with the rest of the potatoes. Don't spead the potatoes out flat, you want some ridges.

    Sprinkle on the parmesan cheese and bake in a 375 oven for 30 minutes.
