Shephard's Pie. A Harry Potter Recipe

"The day Harry is to spend time in detention with Professor Lockhart (helping him to answer his fan mail), Harry eats his shepherd's pie without much appetite, dreading his upcoming detention. If he could foretell the future, he'd have a lot more on his mind, because during his detention he will hear a terrifying, murderous voice in the walls that no one else can hear (see Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Chapter 7)."

So this was a pretty easy thing to make and pretty quick too. Because my family is a bunch of picky eaters we left out the onion. I also doubled the recipe but I kept forgetting that I was doubling it and I could add some things undoubled. I also used beef broth instead of chicken because my mom doesn't like chicken.

First thing I did was cook the meat and then peel and cut the potatoes.

Here is the meat, excuse the ugly cup in the background, my little brother has had one to many head injuries.

Now boiling the potatoes and putting all the flavor into the meat.

Time to cook!

Some of the juices from the meat rose up and colored the potatoes

All in all I think this turned out pretty good. I think there wasn't a very good meat to potato ratio but that was my fault. If I made this again I'd probably made something else to eat on the side, like green beans just to give it some color. It was also a bit salty and we probably ate it to fast. It probably should have cooled a bit.

But it was really easy to make and I will probably make it again. Sorry their were not that many pictures, this really wasn't that exciting to make and I didn't have an assistant.

Still a few more posts left! Any guesses what they may be? Thanks for reading and tell your friends!
