For The Luck of the Irish

February 20, 2019

I have a confession to make. I had never even considered trying this weeks’ highlight until we made it for Simply Done!


Like many in Mid-America, I grew up on leftovers and goulashes, but I had never had the pleasure of eating a Shepherds pie, and boy I didn’t know what I was missing out on! Our Homestyle Shepherd’s pie is one of my all time favorite Simply Done dishes. It is rich and filling, and combines all of the comforting flavors of home. We make some simple swaps from the traditional version to make it as healthy as possible for your eating pleasure, so you won’t find pounds of Irish butter here 😊.


“The history of this gorgeous potato-crusted meat pie dates back to the late 1700’s to early 1800’s and most accounts claim that the pie was created by frugal housewives looking for different ways to serve leftover meat to their families on the British Isles and throughout Ireland {some things never change}. It is also generally agreed that the term “Shepherd’s Pie” originated in the north of England and Scotland where there are large numbers of sheep. If you prepare the pie with minced beef, it is then referred to as Cottage Pie.” (


As we move towards the Ides of March, I encourage you, if you were like me and skeptical, give the Shepherd’s pie a try, you will not regret it! Click here to place you order
