    * Shepherd's Pie has always been a staple of traditional
    Irish cooking. The British use lamb in their Shepherd's
    Pie, but beef is quite popular and ground turkey can be
    used if preferred. This recipe can also be made in
    individual pie dishes, which are always a hit. Drop by
    Humphrey's Market to pick up all of your ingredients.

    Add 2 Tbsp oil to a medium-size pot, on medium heat,
    saute the onions until golden.

    Raise the heat to medium-high, add meat, continuously
    stir while sauteing, until it begins to brown.

    When meat is cooked through, add 1 1/4 cups of hot water,
    bay leaf and garlic, put lid on and bring to a simmer and
    put the heat on low. Simmer for 30 minutes or until the
    liquid reduces to 1/2 cup.

    Meanwhile, peel and cube potatoes in 3cm/1" sq, boil in
    water, until tender. Drain, add salt and pepper to taste,
    add butter and mash.

    Beat the egg yolk with milk. Add to the mashed potatoes
    and stir. Add sliced scallions and stir. Set aside.

    To the simmered meat, add tomato paste, Worcestershire
    sauce, salt, pepper, thyme, and frozen vegetables. Mix
    well and simmer for 5 more minutes. Empty into an
    oven-safe deep dish and remove bay leaf.

    Place rack on middle shelf of the oven, set thermostat
    to 205+|C/400+|F.

    Spread mashed potatoes over top of the meat mixture.
    Rough up with a fork so that there are peaks -or- use the
    fork to make some designs so the top will brown nicely.

    Bake for 30-45 minutes, until golden brown on the top.

    Makes 4 servings
