We prefer beef in this house, so the Cottage Pie has always been our preference! Why is Cottage Pie called "Cottage Pie?" At its most basic, cottage pie is a meat pie (or casserole) that is topped with mashed potatoes rather than a pie crust. After this, it can vary greatly from region to region (or kitchen to kitchen). Sometimes you will see other vegetables like celery, mushrooms, or peas studded through the meat filling. It originated when the potato was being introduced as a cheap food for the poor, and the dish was popular among the people living in modest cottages.
