Leftover shanks shepherd’s pie made from my slow cooked lamb shank recipe.
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!
