Since past couple of days I wanted to bake a Pie. I made up my mind to go with Apple Pie but suddenly realize that my husband would love it if I make something savoury. He doesn’t have craze for sweets like me!!While surfing the TV channels I came across this easy Farmer’s Pie recipe. And immediately I hit my kitchen. When I searched about this recipe in Google, this is what I found. Sometimes called shepherd’s pie, it is a dish made with meat or poultry stew covered with mashed potatoes then baked until the top of the layer of mashed potatoes is lightly browned. It is always interesting to mix different meats and try them with different sauces. Farmer’s pie is also a nice alternative for serving mashed potatoes instead of as the usual side dish for fried or grilled meat or chicken.
