As you may or may not know, I am in love with a #British man. My BFF is straight outta London and has some mean #skills in the kitchen.
I have been actively searching for a healthy cottage #pie recipe that stands up to his butter drenched, oozy cheesy delight. FYI... From my understanding, Shepherd’s pie is made with Lamb and Cottage Pie is made with beef or other #meat . So let's celebrate St. Patty's Day with this truly #Irish , traditional fare with a super #healthy twist.💚 Healthy Cottage Pie Recipe
2 (or more) pounds of ground beef, turkey or other meat
2-3 heads of cauliflower or 3-4 bags of frozen cauliflower
1 bag of frozen mixed veggies (no corn! It's not a veggie!)
1 teaspoon each of basil, garlic, salt, pepper, oregano and a little cayenne
3-4 Tablespoons of butter
4 ounces of cream cheese (optional)
Cheese to top (optional)
Instructions •Brown meat in large skillet and season to taste when cooked. Set aside.
•Sauté diced onion in skillet until somewhat soft. Set aside with meat.
•Pour mixed veggies in the skillet to heat on low heat and in the meantime...
In large pot, boil several cups of water. Add cauliflower, cover, and cook until soft enough to mash.
•Remove the pot from the heat, pour off the water, and add butter and cream cheese to the pot.
•Add spices and mash. (I use a hand blender to make it really smooth).
•Mixed veggies should be cooked by now.
•Mix the meat, onions mixed veggies, raw egg and any additional seasonings and put in bottom of 9x13 baking dish.
•Spread mashed cauliflower mixture over it until smooth.
Bake at 350 for approximately 30 minutes.
Add cheese and bake 5 additional minutes (optional). FIT&FED recipe cred: wellnessmama #mmmm#foodprep#cleaneats#recipes#bleedgreen#irishbyinjection#stpatricksday#allaboutthetaste#yum#afitgirlsfairytale#fitness#DELISH
