cottage pies

Stock the freezer with this winter favourite.

When it comes to comfort food, Cottage pie is a classic. Often called, Shepherd’s pie, which is almost identical however made with lamb. This classic cottage pie features a richly flavoured savoury beef mince base layer with a golden mashed potato and parmesan crusted topping. It’s a great value for money meal, that’s easy to make and uses simple everyday ingredients.

Best of all, Cottage pie is truly perfect to make in advance and reheat, or freeze to have pre-prepared, ready to serve, homemade meals stocked in your freezer. Streamline your meal preparation time and washing up when you portion, assemble, bake, store, and serve in the one container! We used 5 x 750 ml Fresh vacuum containers that can conveniently go from the freezer to the oven and then into your handbag.
