This recipe is my signature dish. This traditional Irish fare is the most requested meal that I get asked to make for pot-luck dinners, when we have guests over and it is my partners favorite dish He asks for it often. (at least once a week). I’m even going to share with you my secret ingredient for this dish as well, as you will discover below. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as me and mine do. 🙂

1 lb ground beef

1 Cup diced onion

6 medium potatos

1 Cup chicken broth

2 Cups frozen vegetables (your choice)

2 eggs

2 Tbsp butter

2Tbsp flour

2Tbsp Worcestershire sauce

3 Tsp chili spice

3 Tsp clubhouse roasted garlic & peppers spice (secret ingredient)

1/4 Cup almond milk


salt & pepper

  1. Start by chopping potatoes into 1 inch cubes , putting them into a pan, add water until covered and boiling for 20 min.
  2. Brown meat then add onions and cook for another 5 minutes, turn off heat. Add chili spice and roasted garlic spice, mix well. Cover and let stand.
  3. To make gravy, melt butter in small pan over medium heat, then when butter starts to simmer add flour and mix for 1 minute to cook flour. Then add broth and Worcestershire sauce and stir for another 6 or 7 minutes until thickened.
  4. When gravy is thickened add to meat mixture and stir well, then add 1 well beaten egg, mix until you see the egg starting to cook from the heat of the gravy. Next add your frozen vegetables. Mix well.
  5. When potatoes are done boiling, drain water then add milk and egg, mash well. I use a hand mixer for this and the potatoes come out nice and fluffy.
  6. Spoon your meat mixture into a casserole dish and cover over the bottom evenly and add salt & pepper to taste. Next spoon the mashed potato mixture over the meat mixture and spread evenly. Do a light dusting of paprika over potatoes then put in the oven set to broil for approx. 15 minutes until the cottage pie is heated through and the potatoes have a crispy coating on the top. Let stand 5 minutes then serve and enjoy.
