A good traditional cottage pie (not to be confused with a traditional shepherd's pie) was, is and always will be one of my favourite dinners. This is a recipe from my Gram who is English. She served this often, and I have modified her recipe for my family and this is it. A great alternative to Shepherd's Pie. Our easy and classic cottage pie made with ground beef and potatoes is a stick-to-the-ribs comfort food dish.
