Cottage Pie – Not…


I made cottage pie for dinner today.  Well, I made the filling yesterday (because I forgot that we were going out) and made the rest today.  I started adding lentils to the filling and also I used sweet potato instead of potato for the topping – a big mistake!


I had made similar one before and it was good then but I mixed potato and sweet potato for the topping, this time I used only sweet potato, which was very very watery. Japanese sweet potatos are very dense and dry but these were so watery it didn’t keep shape at all.  It’s not that it tasted bad or anything, but it just didn’t resemble cottage pie.






It’s better to mix with potato rather than just sweet potato.  Also I used more lentil than mince beef so it didn’t seem to have enough depth of flavour.
