Shepherd's Pie in Dutch Oven

Since I got my dutch oven I've been wanting to make sheperd's pie. I used to think sheperd's pie was 3 layers, ground meat, corn, and mashed potatoes. But upon searching I see the it is actually just meat with any number of veggies mixed, and them mash on top. I prefer the 3 layer variety, but am not opposed to mixing some in with the meat either. Also I will be using ground beef and not lamb, which apparently is cottage pie. Anyone have a TNT dutch oven 3 layer cottage pie recipe?

A dutch oven is a good pot to use for shepherd's pie if you don't use the lid. You have to leave it open so the top can brown a bit.

It depends on which variation you like. The only cottage/sheppard's pie I've had or made is the Quebec version:

Pâté chinois - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I don't recall ever eating it when growing up in MN. The closest dish would have been tater tot-hamburger hot dish.

Shepherds pie is made with lamb , Cottage pie is made with beef , no they are not made in layers it's just the meat mixed with veg (usually peas and carrots ) topped with mash . Worcestershire sauce great in either when added to the meat veg mix .

PS what is a dutch oven ?

A Dutch oven is a big heavy pot with a lid. Those with feet are for use in an outdoor fire. However, LeCrueset pots are also Dutch ovens (OK, they call them French ovens but what would you expect from a French company).
