Cottage Pie
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. In a pan add potatoes, cover with water and bring to a boil. Cook the potatoes for about 20 minutes or until they can easily be pierced with a fork. Drain till they are very dry and place back into pan. Add warmed milk, butter and salt and pepper and whip to your desired consistency. Set aside.
  3. While potatoes are cooking, in a medium-sized saute pan, melt a teaspoon or more of ghee and cook the shallots till slightly translucent. Add the ground beef and brown. Toss in garlic and seasonings and continue to cook till you begin to smell the herbs. Set aside.
  4. Grease a casserole dish with ghee or butter and layer the bottom with the ground beef. Sprinkle a little extra BBQ mesquite here if you like along with some good salt and pepper.
  5. Layer the mixed frozen veggies on top of the beef. Next layer the mashed potatoes.
  6. Add dollops of Black Garlic Ghee on top of the potatoes and bake at 375F for 20-30 minutes.
  7. If you are adding cheese, place on top of mashed potatoes for an additional 5 minutes.
  8. You can use any of our savory ghee products in place of Black Garlic Ghee.
Recipe Notes

Cottage Pie is just like Shepherds Pie only made with ground beef instead of ground lamb.

Serves 8 generously.

Slow and Comfy Chili
This recipe looks like a lot of work but only takes 20 minutes to prep. Sauté your onions and celery, brown your ground beef right afterwards, open your cans, rinse and drain, measure your spices and literally toss it all into your slow cooker - set on low and go!

  4. Mix well, cover and cook on low for 6 – 8 hours. Taste and adjust seasonings accordingly.
  5. Before serving, stir in 1 generous teaspoon of ghee into each bowl. It adds an incredible rich and savory taste.
