    JustJanS's Note:

    Made from the left-overs of our lamb roast. This is how I would ususally make it. Note, cottage pie is the one made with ground beef. I like the lamb minced by hand, but feel free to use a processor, just watch it doesn't get to "pastey". I use beef gravy rather than the flour and stock I mention and that works really well.

      Wow, yum, total comfort food. Last night we had Leg of Lamb for the Slow Cooker / Crock Pot and fortunately we had lots of leftovers. For us this recipe is pure comfort food and we love it. Used the stock from last nights dinner and added some frozen corn to the recipe as well. Both my girls gobbled this down. Fabulous kid friendly, family food. Jan, we love your recipes.

      Great way to use left over lamb roast. I used lamb casserole gravy and some tomato sauce for the gravy and substituted the carrot and peas with a cup of frozen mixed veges. Yum.
