Shepherds Pie has been around since 1854, and in Britain, traditionally contained lamb or mutton.

Whereas the Cottage Pie is based on beef and was introduced to the poorer communities in 1791, along with those high carb potatoes.

This Keto Shepherds Pie can be made in advance and chilled, then baked at the time it’s needed. 

For this, reduce the oven temperature to 160C/320F and bake for 30 minutes, then increase the temperature to 190C/375F to brown the top for 10-15 minutes.

This keto shepherds pie makes 8 serves.

We love the flavor of Lamb. For more lamb recipes check out our Winter Warming Lamb Stew and Lamb & Halloumi Burgers.

  1. Made this tonight. It was very good! The kids even ate it. Daughter was surprised that the topping was mashed cauliflower. Will definitely make again. The filling was runny though, may try adding some Xanthum Gum to thicken the broth a bit. Thanks for this recipe!

  2. Long time to cook, but it worth it. Light and delicious. Cauliflower mash is perfect. Used Italian herbs, instead of thyme.
