Shepherd's Pie



Made this simple pie, sometimes referred to as a 'peasant dish' ..... easy, just pile up mashed potatoes over a bed of cooked meat and vegetables, leftovers also can be put to good use.  But, mine is not from leftover meat, or leftover mashed potatoes,  all freshly  cooked  specially for this pie, and with a touch of Oriental flavour.





Chicken fillet with carrot and green peas in a casserole dish, prefer it moist with more gravy.
Mashed potaotes on top of the meat and veggie mixture



After roughing up the mashed potatoes by scratching it with a fork, apply egg glaze over it.
Freshly baked Shepherd's Pie, oozing with gravy from the filling  ...... mmmm



The gravy blends well with the mashed potatoes




Serve it  hot  ..........  Enjoy !

  1. I like this kind of food...you know farmer bread, peasant pie, etc. etc. They are usually very flavourful, filling and varied.

  2. mmmm....that looks very juicy and delicious. The mashed potatoes look so creamy on top. I think my children would love this. But I know they like the fisherman's pie.

Wool Roll Bread ~ 毛线球面包

  Wool Roll Bread ... its popularity is booming and bursting the seams of Facebook and Instagram.  Every day you see new posts of it, with different ways of making it as well as an endless assortment of fillings to experiment with.  I too have been browsing the internet to research these various methods and their outcomes.  What is it that makes Wool Woll Bread so crazily popular?  To satisfy my curiosity, I tried my hand at making it and was very happy with the results.  I love seeing the bread strands when I pull apart the bread to reveal the meat floss filling and I enjoy how soft and chewy the bread is.  Jump on the bandwagon, folks, you won't regret it!

Coffee Walnut Butter Cake ~ 咖啡核桃牛油蛋糕

  This Coffee Walnut Butter cake recipe is adapted from my Marble Butter Cake which I posted some time back.  I tweaked it a bit to accommodate blended walnuts, added some coffee and Kahlua liqueur.  As always, Mrs. Ng's butter cake recipe never fails and this cake is soft and moist and indeed yummy.
