  • 1 large onion diced
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 2 cups frozen vegetables eg. carrots, peas and corn
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 lb baking potatoes eg. russets
  • 4 tablespoons butter softened
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese grated
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley chopped


  • Wash the potatoes and poke 6-8 holes an inch deep into each.
  • Place potatoes on a plate and microwave on full power for 15-20 minutes until soft. Set aside
  • Place a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add the oil and then the ground lamb, stirring for 3-5 minutes until starting to brown. Drain off any excess fat.
  • Add the onion and garlic and cook several minutes more until translucent and the meat is browning more.
  • Add the Worcestershire sauce, beef broth, vegetables, salt and pepper. Stir for several minutes to boil off excess liquid and remove from heat.
  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • Remove the cooked potatoes from the microwave. Dip in cold water to cool, and peel off the skins if desired.
  • In a medium bowl, add potatoes and butter and mash for a minute until fairly smooth. Then add milk, parmesan, salt and pepper and mash again.
  • Spoon the mashed potatoes over the meat in the skillet and spread evenly. Use a fork to make your favorite pattern on the top of the potatoes.
  • Bake for 25 minutes in the top third of the oven until golden.
  • Remove from the oven and garnish with optional parsley. Serve and enjoy!
