Days like today remind us that it is still winter out there. With the temperature falling below -20°C, I want something hearty and warm to eat. That’s where Grill Baked Shepherd’s Pie comes in. This meal comes off the grill steaming and delicious. The topping of potato is creamy after cracking through the crispy mashed potato top. This is something that your Mom or Granny used to make. It brings back memories of tobogganing and red noses, hot cocoa and family.
Wow nostalgia much? I hope that this recipe brings back as much for you as it does for me.
This meal is great. I like making a bunch of little ones and freezing them – before cooking them – for a quick weeknight dinner. They’re single serve and the perfect size. Adding the smoke makes the potatoes taste like the ones from the Plank Smoked Mashed Potatoes or you can use leftover mashed potatoes too, so either way they are super yummy. OH and if you’re into it, you can also top it with cheese if you like.
What is your favourite nostalgia meal? I’m sure I have asked this before, but I love hearing about stuff like this. Leave a comment below and tell us about the meals you had growing up. If you make them for your family, do they bring back memories of your childhood?

I know I just posted this recipe, but I made a bunch of little ones for the freezer too. I am eating one for lunch right now. SO good! Let it thaw in the fridge before re-heating. 3 mins in the microwave and 5 under the convection toaster (got to have that crunchy potato top!) Or 35 to 40 minutes at 400°F, from thawed, on the grill.

With winter still battering us in the northern areas of North America, a good stew is just about the best thing you can eat. It warms you from the inside. It’s lighter than a beef stew too.View Details
