Leftover Shanks Shepherd’s Pie
So after everyone devours the amazing Lamb Shanks you just made, you can put aside the leftovers to make this the following night. I literally just poured the meat and veg in the base of my baking dish, topped with leftover mashed potato, drizzled in a little olive oil, then baked for 30 minutes at 200°C. You may need to double your measurements when making the lamb shanks so as to have enough for this recipe.
I used Jamie Oliver’s tip to get the nice crispy bits on top of the mash, you just need to smooth over then fluff lightly with a fork in different directions and drizzle in a little olive oil before baking in a hot oven. Food tastes so much better when it looks as good as this!
