Lamb Shepherd's Pie

To clear off the balanced Braised Lamb Leg in Red Wine from the last Christmas, I've made this lamb shepherd's pie for the kid's lunch. The kids were so delighted to see this awesome pie serve at the dining table!. I've frozen a portion of the braised lamb gravy, so its really easy to get this shepherd's pie ready in no time. Just add some chopped garlic, onion, celery and carrots into the shredded braised lamb and gravy and simmer till the vegetable are tender. Top with cheesy mashed potatoes and bake till golden brown....a delicious awesome pie  is ready for lunch! A great way to use up the leftovers braised lamb meat and gravy!
